Argentinian media are suggesting that River Plate will hope that Liverpool make a move for Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos this summer.

Ocampos to Anfield?

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield over the past week with the Reds currently struggling with their attacking prowess in the Premier League.

Valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt, Ocampos has been impressive for Palanganas Nervionenses, having scored four goals and provided two assists in 21 appearances (Whoscored).

The Argentina international has also averaged 2.2 dribbles per game, which is more than Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have managed this season.

According to El Intransigente, Ocampos is keen to make a move to Merseyside which would see his former side pocket a cool €2.5m (£2.2m).

Ocampos typically plays on the left-hand side but can also switch to the other side as well – versatility is a trait which Jurgen Klopp appreciates.

Transfer Tavern Verdict

Ocampos would be a fantastic signing for Liverpool. Not only would it be a huge wake-up call for the famous front three but it will significantly bolster the squad’s depth.

Putting genuine fear into underperforming players that they may find themselves on the bench may be a significant factor in performance levels, following claims made by Trent Alexander-Arnold suggesting that Liverpool went into games always expecting to win. (cited by Anfield Watch).

However, with the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group opting not to sanction a great deal of funds for Klopp in January, the question remains as to whether this trend will stay the same in the summer.

In other news, Liverpool fans applaud “sensible” man for “spilling the truth.”
