Liverpool Plotting Summer Swoop For £21.3m-Rated Spanish Ace
The January transfer window is now closed but we can still look at deals that failed to get across the line and those being lined-up for the summer. Today, Liverpool are linked with Marc Navarro…
Liverpool are plotting a summer swoop for Marc Navarro but may need to meet his £21.3m buyout fee in order to sign the Espanyol right-back, according to the Mirror.
Navarro was once a member of the famous Barcelona La Masia youth academy but joined Espanyol in 2011 and progressed through their youth ranks before breaking in to the first team in 2014.
The 21-year-old is now an established member of the squad after being permanently promoted to the first team set-up earlier this season having previously impressed with their B team.
Navarro has scored twice and set-up another during his 4 appearances in recent weeks and it appears his form has caught the eye of Liverpool’s network of scouts.
The Mirror are citing a report coming from Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo that claims Liverpool have been keeping a close eye on Navarro’s progress and are now plotting a summer swoop for the young full-back.
Nathaniel Clyne is currently the first choice right-back at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp also has talented youngsters like Trent Alexander-Arnold and Connor Randall coming through the ranks so it’s a little surprising to hear that the Reds boss is eyeing another right-back.
Navarro is a tall, powerful defender who is tipped in his homeland to have a huge future in the game so it appears his potential has persuaded Klopp to make him a summer transfer target.
However, Liverpool may have to dig deep if they want to sign the talented full-back as the Mirror claim Navarro signed a new long-term contract with Espanyol that includes a buyout clause worth £21.3m.

The La Liga outfit will no doubt be desperate to keep hold of the player so Liverpool may have to pay that fee in full if they are to force Espanyol to cash-in on Navarro this summer.
