€16m Liverpool playmaker target 'will move' this summer

Published Add your comment

Liverpool target Diego Perotti is set to make a summer switch from Sevilla this summer, according to reports.

The 22-year-old Argentine has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months amidst speculation of an uncertain future in Spain, with Reds boss Kenny Dalglish one of those thought to be interested in the player.

Everton and Newcastle are also thought to be keen on the player, according to SkySports, whilst Spanish speculation claims an agreement is already in place meaning the player will move from the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán this summer.

Perotti left homeland club Deportivo Morón for Spain in 2007, joining the Sevilla B team before stepping up to the senior squad in 2009.

However, Los Rojiblancos have already agreed a deal to bring German international Piotr Trochowski in the summer, leaving the door open for the playmaker's exit.

Liverpool have been linked with a handful of wingers in recent weeks, with Dalglish thought to have highlighted the position as an area that needs strengthening in the summer.


Ashley Young, Eden Hazard and Charles N'Zogbia have all been speculatively linked with an Anfield switch this summer, with a left-back and striker also thought to be of interest to Liverpool.

Damien Comolli, director of football strategy at Liverpool, is also thought to be an admirer of the player and will be keen to push through a deal to bring the player to the club.

Fenway Sports Group, the club's owners, will be called upon to finance the deal should Liverpool make an official move, but the Americans proved in January that they are willing to spend big with Dalglish at the helm.
