£6m South American star 'a strong possibility' for Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for Argentine international midfielder Fernando Gago.

The Real Madrid star is reportedly heading for a Santiago Bernabeu exit this summer, and various press outlet claim Liverpool are strong candidates to bring the player to the Barclays Premier League.

It was claimed in The People only a week ago that an offer of around £8 million could be launched in the summer, although the Spanish giants were thought to be keen on a figure slightly higher.

Now, Ladbrokes claim that a fee in the region of £6 million will be enough to bring the player to Anfield, with Gago 'a strong possibility' to join the Liverpool ranks on Merseyside.

Florentino Perez, president of Los Blancos, has intimated that a number of players will be leaving the Spanish capital in the summer in an effort to free transfer funds for Jose Mourinho, with the former Boca Juniors star thought to be one of those heading for the exit door.


Kenny Dalglish is keen to strengthen in a number of core positions at the first opportunity, with central midfield an area of concern for the Scot and Christian Poulsen failing to impress during his time with Liverpool.

The valuation makes Gago, a 30 cap international thus far, an excellent option for Liverpool.
