Report: Jurgen Klopp keen to bring Lucas Vazquez to Liverpool

Paisley Gateway

The Real Madrid winger is reportedly on Liverpool’s radar.

Jurgen Klopp is keen on bringing Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez to Liverpool this summer, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The Reds manager is expected to be busy in the summer transfer window, with many predicting that there will be a number of incomings and departures at Anfield.

Fixing the defence seems to be his first priority as he has already moved to secure Joel Matip on a free transfer in the summer transfer window.

Adding to his attacking options could also be on the cards, though, and a current Madrid man may be among his targets.

That is according to Corriere dello Sport, who claim that Klopp has studied Vazquez for some time, having also followed him during his loan spell at Espanyol during the 2014-15 season.

He would not be an expensive acquisition either, with the report claiming that he is available for €4 million (around £3.2m).

A right-winger, Vazquez would be more than welcome at Anfield given their lack of wide players in their team at present.

Jordon Ibe is the only out-and-out winger in the squad, while Lazar Markovic may be given a chance following his loan spell with Fenerbache.

Beyond those two though, Klopp’s options are limited and a move for Vazquez, especially at such a low price, would make perfect sense.
