Liverpool ‘threaten the continuity’ of Guido Rodríguez at Real Betis, according to La Razón.
The Reds saw Georginio Wijnaldum leave Anfield as a free agent and complete a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.
Jürgen Klopp’s side are in the market for a new midfielder and the outlet adds they ‘think of Rodríguez’ as the Dutchman’s successor.
The 27-year-old has a release clause of €80m, but Manuel Pellegrini’s side are willing to let the player leave if they receive a fee of €30m.
Real Betis will have to pay 25 percent of the fee to the Argentina international’s former side, Club América. A deal worth €30m wouldn’t be ‘bad’ for the Spanish club, considering they invested only €3m to acquire his services.
With Liverpool thinking of the South American, La Razón explain Real Betis ‘could be forced to sell’ Rodríguez this summer.
Having lost Aïssa Mandi as a free agent, Betis have looked at Torino’s Lyanco as his potential successor.
For them to sign the defender, Real Betis must lower their salary budget and that can take place by sanctioning Rodríguez’s sale to Liverpool.
Real Betis have set the price tag and with Liverpool having their sights on Rodríguez, it’s time to wait and see if the Reds will make an offer to secure his signature.
