‘This is Getting Ridiculous’ ‘We Haven’t Even Got £9’ Fans React To Reports That Liverpool Have Entered Race For £99m Rated Forward

Liverpool are keeping tabs on Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez, according to reports in the Spanish media. Barcelona are heavy favourites to land the Argentinian international but there are concerns about how they will pay for the signing.

It is believed the Catalan club have already lost out on €150m (£134m) in revenue since the beginning of the global health crisis, meaning they are finding it hard to stump up the cash to complete a deal for the striker, who has a €111m (£99m) release clause.

It means that the likes of the Reds, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City are all waiting to see what Barca will do. However, fans on Twitter are sceptical about Liverpool’s interest:

After baulking at Timo Werner‘s release clause, the likelihood of the Merseyside club shelling out double that amount on Lautaro is very low. Although he would certainly fit into Jurgen Klopp’s system, his price tag means there is very little chance of him moving to Anfield.
