According to the Spanish newspaper Diario Gol, James Rodriguez has informed Bayern Munich’s management that he wants to leave Allianz Arena next summer to join Liverpool.
Real Madrid had accepted to send the Colombian star to the German heavyweights last summer on a two-year loan.
The 26-year-old playmaker has been showing some glittering performances this season, but he could leave the Bavarians looking for the Premier League experience.
The Reds would welcome the former AS Monaco players with open arms following Philippe Coutinho’s departure. But, persuading Bayern manager Jupp Heynckes to renounce Rodriguez would be difficult as Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are not getting any younger.
Jurgen Klopp is a big fan of the left-footed attacking midfielder and would like to take him to Anfield, especially considering the prices of Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez.
Following the lack of January signings, the potential arrival of Rodriguez at Liverpool’s ranks could appease the frustrated fans.
