Euro Paper Talk: Liverpool can land Valencia skipper in bargain £33m transfer

Liverpool have been given a potential boost to their hopes of signing Valencia skipper Carlos Soler this summer, while Thursday’s Euro Paper Talk claims Leeds United are ready to make a move for an Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder, if they avoid the drop.


Liverpool have been given hope they could land Valencia skipper Carlos Soler in what could be a bargain £33m deal this summer.

The right-sided midfielder’s long-term future is in doubt, with the Reds and Barcelona mentioned as potential suitors for the 25-year-old.

AS reported earlier this week that Barca had actually struck an agreement over a deal for the player. However, that was dismissed out of hand by Valencia.

While Soler continues to be linked with a move to the Nou Camp, Liverpool are also firmly in the running for his signature.

Sport states that although Barca sporting director Mateu Alemany is a ‘great supporter’ of the player’s signing, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Juventus are also looking at a transfer.

Soler is believed to want out of the club after a falling out with manager Jose Bordalas. His current deal runs down in 2023 but it includes a €50m (£42.2m) release clause.

But despite his current issues, Los Che are still keen on tying him down to a new contract.

However, that is where the lower price tag comes in. If Soler does renew then Sport adds his price will drop to €40m (£33.7m) and that Valencia would be ‘obliged to sell’ him.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to add another quality performer to his midfield and Soler certainly fits the bill.

The six-times capped Spain international has scored 35 goals in 219 appearances for Valencia.
