Diego Llorente

English Premier League outfit Liverpool have already indicated interest in the signature of Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid defender Diego Llorente and they are reportedly preparing an offer for him ahead of the summer transfer window.

The latest report claims that the Reds team are already preparing the sum of €25 million which is expected to be accepted by the Spanish La Liga side.

The Merseyside outfit have got one of the best defence in entire Europe with the former Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez but there is a need to strengthen ahead of the coming summer transfer window.

Reports claim that Diego Llorente is likely to leave the club for a new challenge in the English Premier League and manager Jurgen Klopp is interested in working with him so as to challenge for the English Premier League title against Man City.

Meanwhile, the wait continues for Liverpool as they lost out of the English Premier League title again this season with a point behind Man City –  they have not won the domestic league since 1989.

However, there are claims the contract talks could stall as a result of failure to agree on personal terms between the two parties.
