Liverpool reportedly ready to pay £45 million for back-up left back
Further to the reports about Liverpool being interested in the return of Coutinho at some point, according to reports from Spain today Liverpool are prepared to trigger the £45 million release clause for Real Betis' Junior Firpo.
The claims come from that bastion of truth known as Sport. The Spanish paper says that Liverpool have a great deal of interest in the Spain U21 international.
The 22-year old left-back was highly impressive for Betis in the Spanish top division last season, eventually going on to play 29 games in all, with an impressive 8 goals and assists from the left-back position.
But even Liverpoolfc.com raise the question as to whether Jurgen Klopp would sanction a move costing so much for a backup player. We just can't see it happening either.
