Liverpool are embroiled in a battle with Europe’s heavyweight clubs in the race to sign Argentina World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez.
After some sparkling displays in Qatar concluded with the Benfica midfielder being named as the best young player of the tournament, a high-stakes transfer battle is under way for the 21-year-old.
Liverpool had Fernandez under scrutiny before the World Cup and have a good relationship with Benfica chiefs after signings Darwin Nunez last summer.
Yet the Anfield club may now be beaten to the punch in the battle to sign Fernandez, with Real Madrid also believed to be preparing a bid in excess of €75million to seal a deal in the January transfer window.
