Theo Hernández (above right) is continuing to attract interest from Liverpool, claim reports originating from Spain today.
The 19-year-old Atlético Madrid left-back is currently impressing while on loan at Alavés and a release clause rumoured to be set at £20million could be a tempting option for Jürgen Klopp. The Liverpool manager has no faith in Alberto Moreno and is deploying midfielder James Milner in the left-back berth. It’s no secret that the boss wants to shake things up there a bit in the summer.
It sounds like Atlético Madrid want to hold on to Hernández but they will be powerless if the player takes advantage of the release clause in his contract.
Atletico boss Diego Simeone recently said that he was relaxed about reports that suggested rivals Real Madrid were one of a number of clubs that were tracking the youngster.
“I spoke with Theo a month or so ago,” he said. “We know what we said to each other.
“I am very happy with how he is doing.”
