Reports coming out of Spain today are suggesting that Liverpool may be ready to bid for Real Madrid’s 25-year-old Argentine midfielder, Fernando Gago. This is not the first time we have been linked with the defensive midfielder this summer but now with the arrivals of Henderson and Adam, you have to wonder if there is really any truth in this speculation.
It would make sense why Liverpool may want to sign Gago, we really only have Lucas and Spearing as our out and out defensive midfielders and it may make sense to bring in someone else who is arguably better than both of them. Gago is an incredibly gifted player who has just had a tough time at Real Madrid under Jose Mourinho as Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira are ahead of him in the pecking order. Mourinho wants to get rid of Gago for a fee thought to be €7million which would be a bargain in my opinion.
Boca Juniors are leading the race to sign Gago but the midfielder may be tempted to stay in Europe with Inter Milan and Liverpool possible destinations.
What are your thoughts on Gago if indeed he is a possible target for Liverpool?
