Liverpool invited to bid for Atletico Madrid midfielder Llorente

Liverpool are being linked with Atletico Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente.

Mundo Deportivo says the Spanish side are said to be open to selling the 27-year-old with Liverpool keen to improve their midfield options.

They add that while Atletico boss Diego Simeone is not desperate to sell the player who is contracted to 2027, the LaLiga giants will listen to any offers.

Jurgen Klopp remains keen to rejuvenate his midfield options amid doubts over the futures of Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The likes of Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson have also suffered with fitness issues.

And the summer’s late loan signing Arthur Melo has failed to make any impact.

Llorente has played 12 times for Atleti this season, scoring once.
