Liverpool lead chase for bargain Deportivo La Coruna striker

Liverpool are leading the chase for Deportivo La Coruna forward Pinchi, according to a report.

Jurgen Klopp is keen on the player, according to the Sun on Sunday, but Manchester United and Tottenham are also tracking the 22-year-old striker.

Pinchi, whose full name is Oscar Francisco Garcia Quintela, is out of contract with Depor in the summer and the report claims he will move “for a small compensation fee”.

The forward made his La Liga debut last season, but has yet to play in the league this campaign. He has though been playing for Depor’s second team and has scored six goals in 22 games this season.

Pinchi apparently has electric pace and Klopp is believed to be keen to develop the player, who is virtually a no-risk investment because he is out of contract.

Klopp added youngster Dominic Solanke from Chelsea last summer and he has integrated Solanke into the first team this season and Pinchi is another player Klopp is hoping can progress at Anfield.
