Liverpool Keen to Sign Mateo Musacchio from Villarreal

Mateo Musacchio has been a hot-shot with his performance for Villarreal this season and has attracted a number of European clubs including Liverpool, Juventus and AC Milan. The 20-year-old Argentine prodigy joined Villarreal in Summer 2009 in a move away from River Plate, but he has clinched a regular place in Villarreal squad this season.

Mateo Musacchio is now thought to be one of the most talented central defenders in Europe and many believe that it is only a matter of time before he moves to a bigger club.

Liverpool has already shown their strong interest in the Argentine who represented Argentina at U-17 and U-20 levels. The Premier League club is looking for a young, talented center back who could be a quality replacement for Jamie Carragher.

Reports have it in the media that Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is closely monitoring the prospect of the player and Liverpool’s director of football strategy, Damien Comolli, has already given the go-ahead signal for Mateo Musacchio. Owners of the Merseyside club also look to be interested in investing on the players as they have proven it by their double swoop for Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in the January transfer window.

Overall, it seems Liverpool manager would try his best to add a young central defender in the Summer transfer window, and it looks Mateo Musacchio tops his priority list.
