Liverpool keen on signing No.9 South American centre-forward

Liverpool are desperate to sign Celta Vigo striker Maximiliano Gomez and planning to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. Reds need a new prolific attacker to improve the front-line, and Uruguay international is the best choice in this situation. He has an excellent season and proves his worth one more time.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Barcelona are also keen to sign him. The 22-year-old striker joined the Spanish club from Defensor in 2017 with a €4m deal. He is one of the best centre-forwards in La Liga and unchanged figure for the club.

In this campaign, Uruguayan striker already played 34 games, scored 13 goals and made five assists in all tournament. It is a significant consequence, and he can do much more with high-class teammates. Gomez has contracted with the Célticos until 2022, and his release clause is nearly €35m.

His price could increase and become much more during this season. Maximiliano is a regular member of the national team and also helped them to reach the quarter-final in the 2018 World Cup, but after losing 2-0 against Les Bleus, they kicked out from the competition.

Liverpool have an impressive consequence in the Premier League as they are in second place in the table and have the opportunity to win the competition. Merseyside club also won the Champions League second semi-final against Barcelona 4-0 and reached the final.

Reds signed several footballers last summer like Fabinho from Monaco, Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City and Alisson Becker from Roma. English club heavily linked with Lyon superstar Nabil Fekir, PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot and Serbian centre-forward Luka Jovic.
