Liverpool are one of several clubs to have ‘shown interest’ in Parma youngster Adrián Bernabé.
That’s according to Bernabeu Digital, who say Real Madrid are alongside the Anfield club in keeping an eye on the youngster after his move from Manchester City.
Bernabé joined City on a free transfer from Barcelona’s U18 side back in 2018 and broke through to the first team, with a debut in the EFL Cup against Oxford United in September 2018 and five appearances in total.
He elected to leave this summer, though, making a free transfer to Italy to join Parma in Serie B.
He’s yet to appear for them as he recovers from an injury, but Bernabeu Digital say there is interest in him around Europe regardless.
Real Madrid scouts are ‘keeping a close eye’ on the gem, having been interested in him in the past but failed to get a transfer over the line.
Now they are ‘back on the move’ and currently have several reports praising him and recommending a move in future.
Sources close to the player insist there have been no firm offers, but there is a lot of interest, with scouts checking on his football development in the Italian second division.
Real Madrid aren’t the only side who are keen, with PSG, Juventus and Liverpool having ‘shown interest’ in him as well.
The extent isn’t mentioned, but it’s no surprise to see Liverpool named, with them having a hole in midfield that will need to be filled in the coming years.
They have also targeted more and more youngsters over the last few years as they like to plan ahead, so the likes of Bernabé being on their list isn’t a shock.
He’ll need to establish himself in Italy first if a move is to ever happen, but it’s one to keep an eye on and remember should links ever emerge in future.
