Reports suggest that the prolific Napoli frontman is interested in joining the Reds despite their lack of European football.
The report comes from the Mirror, who believe that the Argentine hotshot is interested in working with Jurgen Klopp as he prepares to revamp Red’s strike-force. Higuain, who has scored 36 goals in 35 league games for Napoli, is apparently trying to force an exit from the Stadio San Paolo, with Liverpool his favoured destination. The former Real Madrid frontman, who has scored 71 goals in 104 Serie A games for Napoli, would certainly be a marquee signing for the reds.
But could a move for the Argentine really be on the cards? Well, it seems highly unrealistic.
Napoli, who paid Real Madrid 34.5 million pounds for Higuain’s services back in 2013, would certainly not let him leave for cheap. Napoli’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, last year revealed Higuain’s buy out clause, which is set at 72m pounds.
Would the reds be willing to splash out so much money for a player who is 28 years old? It seems extremely unlikely.
