Liverpool has seen a £35m bid for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez rejected. Jurgen Klopp had set his sights on the 26-year-old as a possible replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum. The Reds are in talks with Atletico over finding a compromise over their asking price, which is closer to £45m.
Barcelona has proposed a swap deal that would bring Saul to the Nou Camp in exchange for Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann. If Liverpool increases their bid, Atletico is ready to accept and grant Saul his wish of a transfer. Chelsea has been linked with a loan move for Atleti forward Griezynsman.
