Liverpool keen to sign £60m midfielder who Pep Guardiola wants as Kalvin Phillips replacement at Manchester City

Liverpool and Manchester City both want to sign Alan Varela from Porto. Jurgen Klopp loves the player and Pep Guardiola wants him too

Liverpool and Manchester City are both interested in signing Alan Varela from Porto.

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola look set to fight it out for the Premier League title once again. The Reds are currently five points clear at the top, but Manchester City have a game in hand. Now, the two sides are reportedly going after the same player – Varela.

Liverpool and Manchester City want to sign Alan Varela

Both Liverpool and Manchester City could do with a new man in the middle of their park.

The Reds don’t have a natural defensive midfielder apart from Wataru Endo. The Japan international, who is currently away on international duty, isn’t getting any younger. He will turn 31 next month.

Manchester City, on the other hand, have Rodri, who is arguably the best player in his position in the world. He is integral to how Pep Guardiola wants his side to play.

Kalvin Phillips was brought in as his backup, but the England midfielder is now on his way to West Ham United on loan for the remainder of the season.

BolaVIP claim this week that Manchester City could try to sign Alan Varela as a replacement for Phillips, while Liverpool are said to be interested in the midfielder too.

Porto, however, have no interest in letting him leave for a penny below his release clause, which is set at a little under £60 million (€70m).

Liverpool wanted Varela last year

Alan Varela is not a new name for Liverpool fans who keep an eye on every transfer rumour out there.

The 22-year Argentine was linked with a move to sign for the Reds last year, when he was still at Boca Juniors. Planeta BJ revealed back in June that Liverpool had sent scouts to watch him in action.

BolaVIP, who credit Liverpool and Manchester City with an interest this week, have claimed that Jurgen Klopp and co at Anfield absolutely love Varela.

The 22-year-old has once again emerged as an option for Liverpool as they look to strengthen their midfield.
