According to reports, English Premier League strugglers, Liverpool are set to offer Spanish La Liga giants, Real Madrid 22 million euros to get the signature of young Spanish midfielder, Assier Illaramendi. The midfielder joined the Galacticos from Real Sociedad a few years ago and was initially seen as an understudy of Xabi Alonso.
However, the youngster was never really given enough chances to show his true colours and after two seasons in which he must have been really frustrated at his dilemma, the midfielder is now a subject of Liverpool’s interest who are themselves looking for a good midfield option.
Following some really dreadful displays last season and the departure of Steven Gerrard, The Reds are desperate to sign Illaramendi who is seen as a great alternative to the legendary English midfielder. Moreover, Illaramendi is also keen on testing his luck in the Premier League and after seeing former teammate Alonso do so well at Anfield, is confident that he can turn his career around at Merseyside.
