Among the many clubs who are said to be interested in Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez, Liverpool can be constantly seen in the stories.

That’s no different today, as newspaper Record features one more story saying how much it will take to sign the player from the Eagles in the January transfer market.

This time, the outlet claims Fernandez is expected to become the ‘most expensive Argentine player ever’, overtaking Gonzalo Higuain, who moved from Napoli to Juventus for €90m in 2016.

Liverpool are this time included in a list of ‘sharks’ which also features the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United.

It’s the ‘weight of the list of interested sides’ that convinces Benfica to put such a big price tag on him. That’s why the Eagles are only letting him move in January in case some one those clubs trigger his €120m release clause.

Enzo Fernandez, who joined the Lisbon side from River Plate in the summer, was able to show a quick impact at the club and his early departure was soon taken as a reality. Now with his performances at the World Cup, that kind of became inevitable, with the local media just wondering whether he’ll be sold in the winter or in the summer.

Liverpool had been linked to the player since his time in Argentina, and may now regret not having signed him at that time.
