Liverpool join Arsenal in race to sign Bundesliga centre-back

Willian Pacho has been one of stand out stars in Bundesliga this season

Liverpool Football Club has entered the competition with Arsenal to sign Eintracht Frankfurt centre-back, Willian Pacho. The move is expected to take place during the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old Ecuadorian footballer signed for the German team from Royal Antwerp last summer and has since been a consistent starter in their backline. His tackling skills, recoveries, and ability to clear his lines have caught attention across Europe. Moreover, his concentration on the field has also been impressive.

Pacho's left-footed play style is another aspect that sets him apart from many other players of his age. With such promising talent and potential, it comes as no surprise that top-tier clubs like Liverpool are keen on landing him.

Eintracht Frankfurt have slapped a hefty price tag of €60 million

However, securing Pacho won't be an easy task for Liverpool or any other interested club. Eintracht Frankfurt is set to demand at least €60 million for his exit - a price tag that reflects both his current performance level and future potential. Despite this high asking price, Florian Plettenberg reports that Liverpool remains interested in acquiring the young star.

Liverpool squad currently boasts Virgil van Dijk as a guaranteed starter from the left centre-back role. However, considering Van Dijk's age and long-term plans of the club, they could be looking into signing Pacho as an understudy initially before eventually replacing Van Dijk permanently.

This strategy would allow time for Pacho to develop further under one of football’s most experienced defenders while preparing him for future responsibilities at one of England’s biggest clubs.

This potential transfer is sure to keep sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts on their toes in anticipation. As the summer transfer window approaches, it will be interesting to see where this promising player lands.
