Even without Champions League football, the draw of playing under Jurgen Klopp would surely be enough? Apparently not.
According to reports, three players on Liverpool’s wish list are planning on snubbing the Merseyside club.
Reports in Italy suggest that Porto have received a £14 million from Napoli who have sent officials to meet Hererra in the US, where he is currently representing Mexico in the Copa America. The Italian side are now the clear favourites to land him despite serious interest from Liverpool.
It was reported by the Daily Mail last month that the 20-year-old defender is on Jurgen Klopp’s transfer radar but the player himself has ruled a move out saying the following to Bild, as quoted by The Daily Star:
“For me it was the better step to stay in Hoffenheim.
“To develop myself, I need playing time and a coach who puts on me. I have that in [head coach] Julian Nagelsmann. He knows me well and knows where and how he can make me better.”
Napoli, it appears are set to break Liverpool hearts again as they tie down the Argentinian striker with bumper contract. TalkSPORT are reporting a £110,000-a-week deal will be enough to retain Higuain’s services.
