Liverpool make contact over summer Isla switch

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are being linked with a summer transfer move for Udinese midfielder Mauricio Isla.

The versatile Chilean, who can also play across any position in defence, was linked with a move away from the Stadio Friuli last month, with Reds boss Kenny Dalglish one of those showing a keen interest in the 23-year-old.

Now, reports in Italy claim Liverpool have already made contact with the Zebrette over a summer move for Isla, with Gazzetta dello Sport suggesting 'King Kenny' already has plans in place to bring the player into his team on Merseyside.

TalkSPORT claims that the Reds face competition from Roma in the race to sign the player, after they lost David Pizarro to Premier League leaders Manchester City on deadline day.

Isla will cost potential suitors in the region of £8 million, according to the British radio station, and the price-tag would not be a problem for the Anfield outfit due to the financial backing of American owners Fenway Sports Group.
