Strengthening Relationship With Enzo Fernandez As Reds “Promise” Price – Up-to-Date LFC Transfer Rumors
In recent weeks, Jude Bellingham has been the subject of almost all of the conversation around Liverpool’s quest for midfielders. However, the club’s links with Benfica and the Argentine Enzo Fernandez have not been severed.
The Portuguese publication Record, which is considered to be one of the most credible sources of news in the country, said a week ago that Liverpool had made contact with Benfica regarding Fernandez’s availability, and that the 21-year-old had impressed with Argentina during the World Cup.
According to additional rumours originating in Spain, the Reds appeared to have reached a preliminary agreement with him to sign a contract during the summer of 2019.
On Monday, Argentina released statements that were very similar to these: Dario La Capital stated that Liverpool had reached an agreement with Fernandez to sign a contract, and another source, Varsky Sports, suggested that Jurgen Klopp’s team “approached the player with a contract offer.” However, Liverpool has not yet entered into negotiations with Benfica regarding Fernandez’s transfer.
Even while it appears doubtful that an agreement will be reached at this stage, the Portuguese edition of O Jogo confirmed on Tuesday that Liverpool already has some form of pact in place.
They claim that the Reds have “promised to match” any offers that Fernandes receives from other clubs, and the midfielder is reportedly interested in the possibility of going to Merseyside.
As the story goes, the Argentine midfielder, who will play in the World Cup semi-final against Croatia on Tuesday, “is already in the hands of Liverpool.” This match will take place in Russia.
If the transfer does take place, it will most likely take place during the summer of the next year rather than during the month of January, since Benfica is rumoured to be demanding 120 million euros for a transaction to take place during the first month of the following year.
The idea is that Liverpool would wait until the summer of 2019 in the hopes of purchasing it for a reduced price, but at this point, we are beginning to have doubts about the veracity of this account.
Will Fernandez’s price tag truly go down before the conclusion of the season, considering that he is making a strong impression for his country at the World Cup and that Real Madrid is rumoured to be among his other potential suitors?
In addition to this, there is the issue of Bellingham; can Liverpool realistically afford both? Under the current ownership structure, the price of almost 200 million pounds for two players appears to be excessively exorbitant.
However, Fernandez certainly appears to be a player that the club is interested in, and the links with the player go all the way back to August, when Melissa Reddy of Sky Sports said that Liverpool were “keeping an eye” on Fernandez before he left River Plate for Benfica last summer…………………..
