Liverpool favourites to sign Saul Niguez

English Premier League giants Liverpool FC are the front runners in the race to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.

The player is being linked with a move to the Premier League with Manchester United said to be the other team interested in his signature.

Spanish outlet SPORT, via Paisley Gates, claims officials believe the deal could cost as much as €50 million with the Reds ready to give the money as they look to replace Gini Wijnaldum who moved to Paris Saint Germain in the summer on a free.

The player's price come with the fact that he has four years remaining on his current deal with Atleti with the reports stating that it’d take a minimum of €40 million to get the deal over the line, which is a fraction of the Spaniard’s whopping €150 million release clause.

Apart from United and Liverpool, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano claimed that Chelsea are keen on making a move for the midfielder, should a proposed deal with Barcelona fall through.
