Liverpool is preparing to submit a bid of £41m to Atletico Madrid for midfielder Saul Niguez.
The player has been a subject of speculation with Atleti said to be willing to offload him if they can find the right price with AS reporting that The Reds are one of the serious teams after the player.

Apart from Liverpool, the player has been liked with a move to man United with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said to be keen on getting a proper defensive midfielder after securing the services of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
Barcelona is another team said to be after the player and is interested in swapping him with Antonio Griezmann.
