Jurgen Klopp planning £5m January swoop for Uruguay sensation

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is eyeing up a January swoop for Uruguayan starlet Federico Martinez.

He could leave during the January transfer window in a £5million move with clubs willing to take him over to Europe.

Swansea, West Ham and Everton have shown interest in bringing him to the Premier League.

German giants Borussia Dortmund are also looking to add to their talented youngsters, with Napoli and Roma also keeping tabs on a move to Italy.

Martinez has played for the Uruguay Under-17s but has been tipped for a full call-up following his impressive season in South America.

He also has a Spanish passport which means he can move without a work permit.

The youngster caught the eye earlier in the season against Penerol with a stunning goal.

n that game he was playing against ex-Anfield winger Maxi Rodriguez, who is playing in the Uruguayan league at the age of 36.

Martinez’s progress has seen him compared to Angel Di Maria in South America following his emergence in senior football.
