Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Angel Correa transfer talk

Atletico Madrid's Angel Correa misses a chance to score

Liverpool have been linked to Angel Correa.

Liverpool are in talks to sign Atletico Madrid's Angel Correa, according to a report from Foot Mercato.

The talented Argentine could be sold by the La Liga giants to free up funds to spend in January, with key man Antoine Griezmann staying put.

Correa is just 22, and has spent the last three seasons in Spain since signing from San Lorenzo.

Correa can play in a range of positions, fitting the mould of versatile attacker Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admires.

He played last season as a right winger and a striker, but 28 of his 40 club appearances came from the substitute's bench.

This limited his return, scoring four goals and providing eight assists, which included a goal set up in the derby against Real Madrid.

Correa is in need of a move to a club where he can play more regularly, and if Jurgen Klopp can convince him he will get more opportunities then the Reds might stand a chance.

He would fare better played as a striker, with the Reds low on quality options, compared to out wide where they have greater depth.

The Argentine could be a big addition if Liverpool can get him. Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to the transfer rumours...
