Liverpool reportedly identify 26-year-old as replacement for Coutinho

According to a report published by Don Balon, Liverpool are interested in signing Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who left the Anfield club this month to join Barcelona.

The 26-year-old Rodriguez joined Los Blancos during the summer of 2014 following an impressive showing for Colombia during the world cup which was held during that year.

He has however struggled to nail down a regular starting position at the Santiago Bernabeu during recent years and this was what led to him being loaned out to Bayern Munich at the start of the year.

Rodriguez has been in good form for Bayern this season as he has gone on to score three goals and contribute four assists from 13 Bundesliga games and he appears to have attracted the interest of Reds manager Jurgen Klopp who will be looking for a replacement for the influential Coutinho.

However whether the Merseysiders can get a deal done for the Colombian superstar remains to be seen.
