This would be a huge boost for Jurgen Klopp’s squad
Liverpool are said to be first in line to recruit a young Argentina talent who has been thriving at the 2022 World Cup.
Jurgen Klopp has clearly been keeping a careful eye on events in Qatar, and not just on the present Liverpool stars who are competing in the tournament, but also on future Liverpool prospects.
Argentina has advanced to the World Cup semi-finals after defeating the Netherlands in a World Cup classic, and one player in particular has been on a stratospheric ascent.
Enzo Fernandez has ‘burst on the scene’ in this tournament, fighting his way into the national team’s midfield and then establishing his spot there.
His fantastic score against Mexico undoubtedly aided his cause, and he has played an important role in assisting his country, and captain Lionel Messi, in keeping their World Cup aspirations alive.
Last season, the Benfica star would have played alongside Darwin Nunez, and the Uruguayan might play a role in convincing the youngster to join him on Merseyside.
According to La Capital, the Reds are the most likely to sign the 21-year-old, and he may be playing football at Anfield next season.
“Liverpool has expedited its efforts to sign Enzo Fernández and has already signed a pre-agreement with Benfica, the Portuguese club that holds the federative rights of the young Argentine national team midfielder who earned a starting spot in Lionel Scaloni’s team during the World Cup in Qatar.”
“In this way, the English club anticipated two other Premier League giants, Manchester United and Manchester City, institutions who had also planned to add the former River and Defensa y Justicia from June 2023.”
