According to reports Liverpool has reached a pre-agreement with Argentine star Enzo Fernandez. The current Benfica player is on his way to join Liverpool in the upcoming transfer window.
Liverpool keeping an eye on Fernandez
The ex-River Plate player joined Benfica during the summers at a fee of £15M with add-ons. The 21-year-old was an instant hit for the Portuguese side. He has three goals and five assists in his last 24 games. Though he came into the limelight with his ongoing impressive sting with Argentina. Enzo is one of the best young players of the World Cup and undoubtedly a crucial player for Albiceleste.
The Argentine scored a banger against Mexico that put them top of the table and secure them from knocking out from the group stages. His performance in blue and white so far has almost guaranteed him a start in the semifinals against Croatia.
According to Record and Diario AS, who were reported by The Mirror, Fernandez has now “reached a pre-agreement” with Liverpool.
The veracity of this report is under question because neither source has made any indication that it is theirs. The reports actually “appeared in the other nation,” according to both outlets.”
Enzo’s eye on the Cup
Leo Messi praised the Argentine for his latest contributions
“I know Enzo very well, here from the national team and I also played against him in the Champions League.”
La Pulga also said
“To start the World Cup with a loss, so we wanted to turn the situation around. Enzo’s great goal ended the game.“
The Red’s looking forward to reigniting their midfield. Jude Bellingham still remains their number one target but LFC could face stiff competition from Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Man City.
Thus, the 21-year-old Argentine seems a more likable target for the Merseyside giants. But the price claimed by Benfica is £130M. Benfica’s president Rui Costa indicated no player will leave in January.
“We have the sole objective of having a winning season, no player will leave- unless it’s due to the clause- which at this moment is fundamental for the squad.“
Will Liverpool move forward to signing the Argentine superstar or wait for another window to fulfill the transfer target?
