Report: Liverpool want £60m midfielder whose club is willing to sell, Harry Kane said he's got 'perfect' driving ability
Liverpool are reportedly eyeing Saul Niguez, a player who Harry Kane recently praised for his “perfect” driving ability.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be looking for reinforcements in midfield after Georginio Wijnaldum left Anfield.
And according to La Razon, Liverpool have their eyes on Atletico Madrid’s Saul.
The Spanish outlet also claims that the 26-year-old is keen on the idea of playing in the Premier League.
Furthermore, Atletico are reportedly open to offers for Saul, though they’re not willing to let him go cheap.
The Times reported in June that the Spanish champions value their player at 70m euro, or around £60m.
Pricey, but Saul would certainly be worth it, with a CV like his.
He has a La Liga title and two Europa League triumphs to his name, as well as a Spanish Cup, a Spanish Supercup and a UEFA Supercup.
In addition, Saul has clocked up 337 competitive appearances for Atletico, plus 19 caps for Spain.
And if that wasn’t enough, Spanish outlet AS quotes England captain Harry Kane as saying in June that Saul’s driving ability is “perfect”.
Kane was asked what traits from which players would make up the perfect footballer.
“[Paul] Pogba’s ability, [Marco] Reus’ fantastic freekicks, Saul’s perfect driving ability, [Krzysztof] Piatek’s intuition, and [Gianluigi] Donnarumma’s size,” AS quotes him as saying, as translated by Marca.
