Liverpool are interested in Real Madrid defender Nacho Fernandez, who is reportedly available for €20m
According to Spanish newspaper OK Diario, Jürgen Klopp wants to sign Madrid centre-half, as the German seeks to boost his defensive options .
Nacho rejected an offer from Roma last summer after being convinced to stay by Real coach Zinedine Zidane.
The stopper has managed 20 games this season, but could drop back down the pecking order if Jesus Vallejo returns from his loan at Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 27-year-old is a defensive jack of all trades, a master of none. He lacks the pace to be an effective full-back in Real’s tactical model and suffers from occasional lapses in concentration when deployed in the middle.
The Spaniard’s versatility is also a key reason Zinedine Zidane has kept him involved within the first team picture.
Liverpool can tempt Nacho away with an attractive contract offer as he’s among the lowest paid at Real.
