Liverpool linked with Morata move

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool are being linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Moratta.

Spanish publication Punto Pelota claims the Reds are one of a number of clubs to make a proposal to the 20-year-old, who is looking for first team opportunities next season.

The Spanish U21 international has made it clear to Los Blancos that, if a new forward signs or Gonzalo Higuain does not leave, then he wants senior minutes elsewhere.

Morata is keen to test himself in the Premier League, the report claims, and is also keen to represent a historic club like Liverpool. Their proposal stands out above others that have been made.

If Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti does let the youngster leave for Anfield, then a buy-back clause would be included in the contract – as was the case when Dani Carvajal left for Bayer Leverkusen and subsequently returned this summer.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has already added a Spanish feel to his side this summer, adding Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto to the ranks on Merseyside.

Moratta would strengthen the forward-line further, whilst providing competition to Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Aspas.

However, the the report claims a move to Liverpool could have implications over Luis Suarez, who has been linked with Los Blancos.
