Liverpool report: Reds to land Marcos Llorente at cut-price deal



Liverpool target Marcos Llorente looks on during the UEFA Nations League League A Group 2 match between Spain and Switzerland at La Romareda on September 24, 2022 in Zaragoza, Spain.

Liverpool could ask Atletico Madrid’s Marcos Llorente to strengthen their midfield.

Despite Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara, James Milner, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho as midfield options – not to mention loan Arthur Melo – Jurgen Klopp would like to strengthen the core of his side. Jude Bellingham is widely rumored as another target.

But now Llorente – who scored twice to defeat the Reds in the 2019/20 Champions League round of 16 – appears to be available, with Atletico in crisis.

The Spanish side were unceremoniously expelled from the Champions League without even a reprieve from Europa League football recently, finishing bottom of their group – and with Diego Simeone looking to offload players to stay competitive, Llorente could be sacrificed .
