Liverpool is targeting Real Madrid forward Rodrygo in this summer’s transfer market

Liverpool is targeting Real Madrid forward Rodrygo in this summer's transfer market Transfers

Liverpool has some of the best forwards in the world, including Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, and Cody Gakpo. Youngsters Ben Doak and Jayden Danes are also showing promising performances.

On the other hand, the departure of Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international who is the subject of intense interest from Saudi Arabia, remains in the dark. A huge offer is expected to come in this summer, but with Liverpool looking to renew his contract with the winger, who is still under contract until 2025, no one knows where his future lies yet.

In addition, Egyptian King is also pushing for a long-term successor as he nears the age of 32. According to Spanish newspaper Sport, Real Madrid’s Brazilian international Rodrygo is also a target and could make a concrete move in the transfer market this summer.

The 23-year-old forward has been a regular in Carlo Ancelotti’s side this season, scoring 13 goals and assisting eight in 41 appearances. He has also pitched in 19 games for the Brazilian national team, and in addition to Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Arsenal have also taken notice.

El Blanco is not willing to release the Brazilian forward and is not in talks for a transfer at this time. In addition, he is reportedly demanding a fee of 100 million euros, a sum that no club will be willing to pay.

However, with French international Kylian Mbappe scheduled to join the club next season, competition for the attacker position will be fierce. It is unlikely that Vinicius will be kept in reserve, and the leading candidate to be left out of the starting lineup will be Rodrygo.

He can play as a right winger, but Liverpool is targeting left-handed wingers. He is a player who can score goals from cut-ins and is out of their scope. In addition, he is not a high scorer, which is also far from what Liverpool is looking for.

Will the Brazilian winger continue his career in Spain next season?
