Reds hoping to secure deal for Colombian star Fredy Guarin.
Liverpool are lining up a January loan move for experienced Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin in the January transfer window, report the Mirror, with the Colombian World Cup star a player that manager Brendan Rodgers has pinpointed as having the requisite quality to improve his flagging outfit.
Despite a impressive goalscoring record at the San Siro for a midfielder and a relatively large reputation across the continent, Guarin has been unable to tie down an undisputed spot in the Inter first team in the last eighteen months under either Walter Mazzarri or Roberto Mancini – meaning that he could be available on a loan move with a view to a permanent deal in January.
The 28 year-old has scored 10 goals in 69 Serie A appearances for Inter since joining from FC Porto, and has a good goalscoring record in Portugal as well, meaning that Rodgers could be looking towards Guarin to provide more goals for a side who have been struggling for them in the absence of star striker Daniel Sturridge this season.
Capable of playing in both attacking and defensive midfield roles, Guarin’s reputation amongst English fans is perhaps slightly better than it is in the country in which he plays, but such is the desperation of Liverpool for improvement he would probably represent a useful capture.
