Top-class playmaker was reportedly desperate to join Liverpool

James Rodriguez

The Daily Express have broadcasted the news from the Spanish outlet El Gol Digital claiming that Bayern Munich playmaker James Rodriguez was desperate to join Liverpool on transfer deadline day.

According to the reports, the former AS Monaco star is not satisfied with his current status at the German club, as he is facing serious competition from Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Kingsley Coman, and Thiago Alcantara for the starting spot.

On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp would like to fill the hole left by Philippe Coutinho’s departure earlier this month. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to sign Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar, the German expert may have turned his attention to the 25-year-old Colombian midfielder.

However, it was extremely difficult to conclude such a deal in 24 hours, considering Real Madrid had to give their approval, and in the end, the Reds missed out on the signing of the South American superstar.
