Liverpool are readying a A?22m bid for Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev.
The Reds have been linked with the Russian winger since the start of the window and the player has been targeted as a potential Raheem Sterling replacement.
The Englishman seems adamant about leaving and the Reds need to ensure something like last season doesn’t repeat when they failed to replace Luis Suarez adequately.
Liverpool have been very busy this summer and have made six signings for the senior squad, Roberto Firmino’s addition being the especially eye catching up.
Andy Hunter of The Guardian reported that Barcelonaa s Pedro and Real Madrida s Denis Cheryshev have been lined up as alternatives for the Liverpool attacker. They write: Despite their current stance, Liverpool are considering alternatives should the England forward eventually complete a move to the Etihad Stadium. The Barcelona winger Pedro is a possible target despite only recently signing a four-year contract with the European champions. Denis Cheryshev, the . Real Madrid winger who spent last season on loan at Villarreal, is another option that appeals to the Liverpool manager.
According to Marca (June 22), Cheryshev does have a chance at a future in the Spanish captial. They wrote: Rafa Ben tez wants to make room for Denis Cheryshev. He is hoping that the Russian winger will eventually become a full Real Madrid player, given that he is a specialist in wing play, which the squad needs, and Ben tez is convinced he needs a player like Denis.
According to the report in the Mirror, Rafael Benitez has received a bid from the Reds for the Russian and will contemplate over the matter and discuss it with his bosses.
The attacker had 6 goals and 9 assists in the recently concluded season. The left winger is a good offensive threat and likes to regularly cut inside and attack centrally, giving the opposition defenders a nightmare. He is quick, direct, two-footed and his strong dribbling and powerful shooting make him a big menace for the opposition. He is also versatility and can take players on with conviction.
