€20.5m Liverpool superstar South American target set for summer switch

Liverpool midfielder target Fernando Gago is poised for a summer move from Real Madrid.

The Argentine international is one of seven players being linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season, and claims Liverpool are one of the clubs interested in signing the 24-year-old.

Gago first appeared on the Anfield radar back in April 2009, when The People claimed that Liverpool and Chelsea were monitoring the player and that he'd be interested in a move to England.

A switch to the Barclays Premier League has been mooted on a number of occasions for the former Boca Juniors player, with the Merseysiders always a name in the frame whenever the rumours re-surface.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is planning a player cull at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, looking to offload players in an effort to create transfer funds for Jose Mourinho. Gago is thought to be one of the players 'the special one' will allow to leave.

Kenny Dalglish has hinted that he will look to re-structure his squad at the first opportunity, meaning a number of changes to the Liverpool playing staff at the end of the season.


NESV, the club's owners, showed in January that they are willing to spend big to bring players to the club, and the Liverpool boss could look to do so again in an effort to sign Gago.

His value has dropped substantially from when he moved to La Liga for €20.5 million back in 2007 though, and claims that Liverpool could land the player for as little as £8 million.
