Liverpool are interested in signing Gabriel Mercado from Club River Plate. The 29-year-old defender was in good form last season and is now representing the Argentine national team in the Copa America.
Mercado has been scouted several times by Liverpool, and it’s been documented that the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of the Argentine right-back.
River Plate’s president Rodolfo D’Onofriohas confirmed that Liverpool manager is interested in signing Mercado.
However Mercado would need a work permit to be able to play in the UK.
“Klopp likes him,” D’Onofriohas told Fox Sports.
“Winning a title with the national team would allow him to play in England.”
