In the wake of Liverpool’s apparent interest in Saul Niguez, Atletico Madrid is apparently willing to let him leave this summer.
According to new claims from Mundo Deportivo, through Paisley Gates, Atletico Madrid is eager to trade Saul if the right bid comes in.
According to the report, the La Liga winners value the 26-year-old at roughly €80 million (£69 million).
According to reports, Atletico Madrid is close to signing Rodrigo De Paul from Udinese, allowing Saul to depart the Spanish capital.
In recent weeks, the Reds have been linked with a move for the midfielder, with sources in Spain claiming Jurgen Klopp’s side is keeping an eye on his position.
Atletico Madrid is willing to sell this talented midfielder to Liverpool, which would be a huge boost for Klopp. According to a recent rumor from La Razon, Atletico Madrid is open to selling Saul Niguez to Liverpool this summer. The Reds are said to have identified the Spanish midfielder as a suitable replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, who just joined Paris Saint-Germain (via La Razon).
After a string of steady performances at the heart of Diego Simeone’s midfield, Saul had another good season with the Madrid giants. In the previous campaign, the 26-year-old played in 41 games for the Spanish side, scoring two goals and adding one assist on all fronts.
Saul possesses a diverse set of passing options and is adept at constructing attacks in the opposition’s half.
He’s a tough-tackling midfielder who’s always prepared to put in the extra effort in the middle of the field. When the opponent is on the attack, the Spanish star can clear the danger and even strike the ball with strength and accuracy from long range. If he wants to be a success story in Premier League football, he must work on enhancing his output in the final third.
