Liverpool have been informed they may have to pay a “premium price” for their left-back target, currently playing for Brighton and Hove Albion.

Liverpool are always looking for ways to improve the squad. Unfortunately for Jurgen Klopp, though, the board doesn’t often fund his transfer desires, meaning he has to look at more budget friendly options. This is an approach which has worked for Brighton, but it can sometimes be to Liverpool’s detriment since they want to compete with the best of the best.

With that being said, Jurgen Klopp is being linked with a move to Pervis Estupinan. The Brighton left-back is considered to be one of the best in the league and certainly has reached the world-class bracket already.

Liverpool will have to pay big for Brighton star Pervis Estupinan

According to a report from TEAMtalk, Estupinan’s agent has confirmed that several Premier League are in line to sign their client. This all but confirms that Liverpool are interested in signing him.

However, the report also claims that Liverpool are likely to be forced into paying a premium price to land the Ecuadorian. Given the recent sales from the Seagulls, it’s very rare that they let players go for cheap. With that in mind, though, Liverpool are excellent barters, given their insane pickup of Alexis Mac Allister being one of the bargains of the decade so far.

Certainly, Pervis Estupinan is worth a premium price. To land the best players, you have to spend big. This is especially the case where big-money rivals are concerned.

Estupinan is one of the best attacking full-backs in the game. There is a reason why he frequents everybody’s FPL teams, because he is always a creative threat going forward. Since this is how Liverpool play, it’s no surprise to see them linked with a player of Estupinan’s exploits.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s replacement may already be lined up.
