Liverpool have formalised their interest in Angel Correa after offering the £25m-rated Atletico Madrid forward a five-year contract
Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe. Today, Liverpool have made their move for Angel Correa…
Liverpool have formalised their interest in Angel Correa after offering the £25m-rated Atletico Madrid forward a five-year contract, according to a report in the Express.
Jurgen Klopp has already snapped-up striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea while he also splashed out a club record fee on the signing of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah from AS Roma.
However, the Reds boss is seemingly still keen to further strengthen his attacking options ahead of Liverpool’s return to the Champions League and Correa has emerged as a potential target.
The Express are citing a report coming from Foot Mercato that claims Liverpool have formalised their interest in the attacker after offering him a five-year contract worth £2.9m-per-season.
However, the French publication says that not only is Correa holding out for a deal worth closer to £3.97m-per-season but Liverpool are also yet to agree a fee with Atletico Madrid.
The La Liga outfit are understood to be reluctant to sell due to their transfer ban but the Express suggest they will cash-in if Liverpool are prepared to pay around £25m for the 22-year-old.
It remains to be seen whether the Merseysiders will be willing to meet that asking price but Correa would be a solid signing if Liverpool were successful in agreeing a deal for his services this summer.
The youngster joined Atletico from San Lorenzo in 2014 and while he wasn’t always a first team regular he still managed to score 8 goals and provide a further 11 assists in all competitions last season.

Correa’s potential has seen him capped seven times for Argentina and he’s been likened to Sergio Aguero for his build and style of play with the stocky forward able to play anywhere across the front line, including as a second striker.
