Liverpool are willing to offer Theo Hernandez five times his current contract to sign him this summer, according to reports
The 19-year-old is excelling on loan at Alaves from Atletico Madrid this season, and a number of Europe’s big guns are preparing a move for the talented teenager.
Real Madrid have reportedly already enquired about the Frenchman’s availability, while Bayern Munich and Barcelona are currently monitoring his progress. Moreover, Ligue 1 side Marseille were planning a move in the January transfer window.
After Alberto Moreno’s unconvincing displays James Milner has been deployed as a makeshift left-back throughout the season. And Reds manager Jurgen Klopp needs to source a new left-sided defender this summer.
And Spanish outlet Cadena Ser say the Reds see him as the perfect player to end their woes on the left side of defence.
Liverpool will offer him a contract five times what he is currently on to try and beat Real to his signature.
The French U20 international has appeared 23 times for the La Liga side this campaign and has shown plenty of attacking capabilities in addition to his defensive work, providing three assists.
Jurgen Klopp’s man would be able to sign Hernandez for a transfer fee in the region of €24m, a little over £20m, a clause which was implemented into the new deal he signed last year.
