Midfielder monitored by Liverpool could be available for cut-price £4m

According to reports, Liverpool could sign Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho for a bargain price of £4 million.

The Mirror report that the 25-year-old has been monitored by Liverpool, and the club are considering a move to sign him during the summer.

While the player has an £8 million buy-out clause—according to the tabloid—Malaga are understood to be keen on raising funds, and would accept a bid for roughly half that for the player’s services.

The midfielder captained Spain at youth level, but has arguably never truly realised his potential, making only one senior appearance for La Roja to date.

The defensive operator began his career at Real Zaragoza, before truly breaking through at Atletico Madrid. He struggled to compete with the likes of Maniche and Ever Banega, and was offloaded to Malaga in late 2010.

Should Camacho move to Anfield, he could represent an upgrade on Brazil international Lucas Leiva, while he would likely compete with the likes of Joe Allen, Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Emre Can for a spot in the middle as part of Jurgen Klopp’s rebuild.
