Liverpool could break the bank to acquire the services of the 22-year-old Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
According to a report by Fichajes, Liverpool could break the bank for Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. The 22-year-old winger has been sensational in the ongoing season. His value has skyrocketed. And the Merseyside club could pay a record-breaking fee of €130 million for the Napoli star.
Kvaratskhelia joined the Serie A club ahead of the ongoing season from Dinamo Batumi. He has done wonders since joining the club. The 22-year-old has been sensational for the Italian club on the left flank. He is one of the primary reasons for Napoli’s success in the current campaign. They are at the top of Serie A and have a 16-point lead over second-placed Lazio.
The Georgia international has been in red-hot form scoring 14 goals and creating 16 in his 33 outings in all competitions. Kvaratskhelia’s impressive run has attracted the attention of a lot of clubs from across Europe. The 22-year-old’s contract runs until the summer of 2027.
However, he could be on the move in the summer if they receive a huge offer. While Napoli would love to keep him at the club for another season, they might let him leave for a fee of around €130 million. And, Liverpool seem to be ready to prise him away from Italy.
The Premier League giants have had a rough time in the ongoing season. They have been far from their best and are currently fighting for a top-four finish. Jurgen Klopp’s team have struggled and a majority of it has been because of an inconsistent midfield. While the German manager’s primary target is to bring in reinforcement in the centre of the park, he is also looking for a world-class forward.
The club have failed to successfully replace Sadio Mane who left for Bayern Munich. And, they are ready to suffer another huge blow in the summer as Roberto Firmino is all set to part ways with the club.
Klopp is keen on signing a star forward to lead the attack. Kvaratskhelia is one of the biggest names on his list and as per the reports, the club could pay a record price of €130 million for the Napoli star.
