Jurgen Klopp keen to sign 21-year-old Teixeira alternative from AS Roma

The latest transfer news from TalkSPORT claim that Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp is keen on signing Argentinean playmaker Leandro Paredes, who is currently on a loan at Empoli from AS Roma.

The Merseyside club look unlikely to conduct any further business in the current transfer window, as the deal for Shakhtar Donetsk attacking midfielder Alex Teixeira seems to be on the brink of collapsing, as the Ukrainian side are demanding €70m full buy-out clause for the Brazilian.

And now, the English sources claim that the Reds are considering 21-year-old Leandro Paredes as a potential replacement of Alex Teixeira and are planning to make an official move for the talented Argentine starlet.

Leandro Paredes has established himself as one of the key players for the Italian side this season and played a major part of Empoli’s success. It is believed that Liverpool are also monitoring the progress of his team-mate Piotr Zielinski.

Jurgen Klopp is keen to add high-quality midfielders to his squad. The German manager has already completed the deal for Marko Grujic, who will join the Red at the end of the season and former Borussia Dortmund boss believes that Leandro Paredes could also be a wonderful addition to the club.
