As long as Georginio Wijnaldum’s future at Liverpool remains up in the air, potential replacements will be named.
Rodrigo De Paul is one of them, with the Reds named numerous times alongside the Argentine midfielder, whom Udinese would like to hold onto if they can.
The player has previously hinted he’d like to move to the Premier League if he could, with Liverpool offering him just that: a better platform on which to showcase his talent.
It was claimed Jürgen Klopp’s side were ‘ready to make’ a €30m approach for the Udinese star, but with the Serie A club wanting at least €40m, nothing came of it.
Pierpaolo Marino, the club’s general director, has since spoken out about the futures of both De Paul and their goalkeeper Juan Musso when talking to Radio Marte.
Relayed by Calciomercato, he said: “It takes a lot of money to get them, but it’s not like we went looking for potential buyers. I don’t have the problem of needing to advertise them. If someone doesn’t realise how strong they are, selfishly, it’s better for me”.
To us, that sounds like both are on the market for the upcoming transfer window, but only at the right price.
