Fabrizio Romano reveals fee needed to sign ‘top attacker’, who is wanted by Liverpool

Fabrizio Romano reveals fee needed to sign ‘top attacker’, who is wanted by Liverpool

Yeremy Pino has been highly rated by many clubs this summer.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed the fee that is needed to secure the signature of Villareal youngster Yeremy Pino.

The tricky winger has impressed for a number of years for the Spanish club's first team, despite still being only 19, and he played a pivotal role in the side’s inspiring Champions League run last season, which saw them reach the semi-final and beating the likes of Bayern Munich and Juventus along the way.

Last season, he played 31 games for Villareal in all competitions and amassed 11 goal contributions including 7 goals and 4 assists.

In his column for Caught Offside, Romano stated the fee clubs would need to pay to sign Pino.

“Many clubs have been following Yeremy Pino for months, he is a top player of the future that at least three Premier League clubs have been monitoring for some time,”

“No proposals have been made yet to Villarreal, who would like more than €50m (£41.9m) for their young star, it will not be an easy negotiation.”

Liverpool and Arsenal have been quoted by journalists throughout the summer as the clubs most desperate to acquire the Spaniard.

This will come as good news to Red’s fans considering the serious injury situation at their club already this season.

Jota has missed the last couple weeks after tweaking his hamstring, Firmino was unavailable for the Palace game due to a fitness issue, and Darwin Nunez was shown a straight red and will miss the next three games.

In addition, Divock Origi, Takumi Minamino and Sadio Mane have already departed from Anfield this summer which has created a serious lack of strength in depth at the club, so the signing of Pino would be a helpful addition in improving this. 

The versatility of the 19 year-old will also catch Klopp’s eye, as he is able to cover all three areas of the attacking line.
