Liverpool have joined the ever-lengthening list of clubs keen to sign Ajax full-back Nicolas Tagliafico in the summer, according to Don Balon.
Andrew Robertson has been Liverpool’s first choice left-back since he arrived from Hull City in 2017 but Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to provide some competition for the Scotland captain over the next few months – particularly with Alberto Moreno’s contract due to expire.
Don Balon believes that Tagliafico has forced his way onto Liverpool’s radar after an impressive first full season in Amsterdam.
The Argentina international has produced five goals and five assists for Ajax in all competitions and shone as Erik Ten Haag’s side famously stunned Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16, winning 4-1 at the Bernabau in the second leg.
That display is thought to have caught the eye of Real’s city rivals Atletico with Don Balon claiming that Diego Simeone is ready to rival Klopp for Tagliafico’s signature.
Tagliafico, who is valued at up to £18 million, has been on Atletico’s radar since his time in Argentina with Independiente. He could replace long-serving Filipe Luis with the Brazilian expected to bid farewell this summer.
