Liverpool will need to fork out €100 million for Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia
According to Fichajes, Premier League giants Liverpool will need to fork out at least €100 million to secure the services of Napoli superstar Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The 22-year-old is one of Luciano Spalletti’s top stars this season as Napoli eye a long-awaited Scudetto title. The last time they secured the trophy was when Diego Maradona kitted out in the club’s colours.
Kvaratskhelia has managed to put together 12 goals and 14 assists in 24 games for the club across all competitions this season. Capable of both scoring and assisting goals, he is the full package for a side seeking to bring in a reliable attacker.
The Georgian international is also capable of playing on both flanks and also up top if needed. This could see him fit in well at Anfield where Jurgen Klopp operates a fluid front three. The Reds have struggled for consistency this season and are very much in need of a rebuild next summer.
The club’s left flank is dominated with options such as Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz. The other flank is largely reliant on Mohamed Salah, a player who isn’t getting any younger. One can argue that selling the Egyptian while he still has resale value and then reinvesting the amount in Kvaratskhelia would suit the club in the long run.
As things stand, Liverpool will need to fork out at least €100 million for his services. With the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and the Manchester clubs also interested, there is every reason Napoli could provoke a bidding war.
Given the massive investment needed in midfield, it is debatable if Liverpool can pay a king’s ransom for their man. Napoli are dogged negotiators and are likely to hold onto their star players until an acceptable bid is received. With the 22-year-old’s current deal running until 2026, they have leverage when it comes to talks.
Liverpool are in need of a makeover and there are few players who can walk into their side in world football. Kvaratskhelia is certainly one of them and could be a key piece in the club’s rebuild. However, with the bulk of their transfer kitty likely to go towards landing Jude Bellingham, the chances of the Reds splashing the cash for the Napoli ace appears unlikely.
