Some Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Saul Niguez is about to join Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.
What’s the story?
Sky Sports are reporting this evening that Saul is leaving Atletico Madrid for Chelsea on summer transfer deadline day.
It is being reported that last season’s Champions League winners, Chelsea, have agreed a deal with La Liga champions Atletico over signing the 26-year-old midfielder on loan.
The Spain international will move to the Blues on an initial loan deal with an option to buy.
Chelsea will pay a loan fee of €4 million (£3.4m) for Niguez, according to the report.
What are Liverpool fans saying?
As you can see from the tweets below, Liverpool fans are frustrated that the Reds are not signing Saul on summer transfer deadline day.
Well, some of them anyway.
Liverpool have actually been linked with Saul.
Mundo Deportivo reported in July that the former Premier League champions had made a bid to Atletico for the midfielder.
Atletico had turned down their first offer.
We covered the report here on HITC Sport.
Saul made 22 starts and 11 substitute appearances in La Liga for Atletico last season, scoring two goals and providing one assist in the process.
