Reds could move for James Rodriguez

    Rodriguez in action for Real Madrid

    Liverpool could make a move for Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez.

    The Colombian international is set to be allowed to leave the Spanish giants in the coming year and that could see a bid from Anfield lodged.

    Should Jurgen Klopp decide to try and bring the former Monaco man to Merseyside, he will almost certainly need Champions League football to be on offer next season.

    Reports have claimed that the midfielder has a rocky relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane, who has not given Rodriguez a regular spot in his side this season.

    A host of other Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United would likely attempt to take him away from the Bernabeu and Italian champions Juventus have also been credited with an interest.

    Rodriguez was linked with a move to Anfield in the Summer, but nothing came of it. But the idea of an impending exit from the La Liga club has seen talk resurface.

    Real Madrid are said to doubt that the Reds can afford the fee they are demanding for the Colombian, but that doesn’t mean interest is dead.

    Klopp already has Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana at his disposal and so it seems unlikely that he would sanction what would be a big money bid for Rodriguez.

    But the twenty-five year old is a player of undoubted ability and he would certainly improve the squad at Anfield.
