Reported Liverpool and Manchester United target Junior Firpo has suggested to AS that he could leave Real Betis in the summer transfer window.

According to a report in The Sun, Liverpool and United are interested in signing Firpo from Spanish club Betis this summer.

The 22-year-old is a very talented and promising left-back, and the youngster has just won the Euro Under-21 Championship with Spain.

Firpo told AS, as translated by The Mirror: “I want to enjoy this success and the holidays, right now all the clubs are starting their pre-season and we are finishing it - when the summer is over I will sit down and talk about my future.”

Good signing for Liverpool or Manchester United?

Firpo is only 22 years of age, and the Spaniard can only improve and develop in the coming years.

Both the Reds and the Red Devils could do with a left-back, and the Spaniard would be a good long-term signing for them.

According to WhoScored, the youngster made 22 starts and two substitute appearances in La Liga for Betis last season, scoring three goals and providing four assists in the process.

While Liverpool will be aiming to win the Premier League title next season, United will be challenging for a place in the top four.
