£70m-rated Bayern star picks Liverpool as preferred destination

One £70m-rated Real Madrid star has his heart set on a move to the Premier League to join Liverpool, a report claims.

According to El Gol Digital on Wednesday, Colombia star James Rodriguez is open to a move to England, and has chosen Anfield as his preferred destination.

Reports earlier this month claimed Liverpool were in talks with his agent about a possible move as they seek a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho departed the club for Barcelona earlier in January for a fee of £142m, but Jurgen Klopp is yet to find a replacement.

Any move would have to be put on hold until the summer, as Liverpool would first need to persuade Bayern to cut short his loan spell, and then they would have to enter negotiations with Real over a transfer fee.

The Mirror claimed earlier in the month that James Rodriguez has a £70m valuation.
