Liverpool are interested in signing Marcos Llorente from Atletico Madrid, who scored twice in two appearances at Anfield in 2020.
The report claims that Jurgen Klopp is a fan of the Spanish star and wants to bring him to Anfield during the summer transfer window. As a crucial member of Diego Simeone’s squad, Llorente just signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2027. Llorente has been with the club since August 2021, and his previous contract expired in August of that year.
A large sum of money would be required to lure him away from Real Madrid because of his lengthy contract, but his flexibility may make him a worthwhile investment. When he came off the bench to knock Liverpool out of the Champions League, he had played right back, central midfield, and even just off the striker in the previous season.
Having behind by one goal at the time, Llorente came on to replace Diego Costa shortly before the 60-minute mark. Atletico Madrid advanced to the next round thanks to two goals and an assist from the Spanish utility player.
Llorente can fill in for Trent Alexander-Arnold as well as add depth to the middle of the field. Simeone fostered work ethic and aggression in the 27-year-old, which Klopp will appreciate.
