‘Conversations Took Place’: Liverpool Discover Transfer Price for Bundesliga Defender With ‘World-Class Potential’

Willian Pacho and Eintracht Frankfurt defend corner

Liverpool are looking forward to building their team for the post-Jurgen Klopp era once the German manager leaves the club after the end of the 2023/24 season. Now, an interesting update has emerged on their ambitions to sign Eintracht Frankfurt defender Willian Pacho.

Liverpool Prioritizing Willian Pacho Signing in Summer Window

How Much Will Pacho Signing Cost?

Foot Mercato’s Santi Aouna has reported that the Reds have made it a priority to sign the 22-year-old centre-back in the summer transfer window. He also adds that “conversations took place” between Eintracht Frankfurt, Pacho’s agent and Liverpool’s representatives as they hope to iron out an agreement soon.

With the Ecuadorian centre-back being contracted until 2028 with the Bundesliga side, the club will not be letting him leave for cheap. Aouna claims that Frankfurt are likely to demand a fee of just over £55 million, including bonuses, to let the 22-year-old leave the club for Liverpool after the 2023/24 season is over. That means the Reds will have to pay a decent amount of money to sign the player, who is likely to be brought in to be the replacement for Joel Matip after the German defender leaves following the expiration of his contract.

What Can Pacho Bring to Liverpool?

Pacho has been in impressive form for Frankfurt in this campaign, making 29 appearances for them in the Bundesliga and helping them keep seven clean sheets. The 22-year-old is a combative, energetic centre-back who has also made 10 appearances for the Ecuador national team in his career and has been earning a lot of praise for his performances.

Eintracht Frankfurt manager Dino Toppmoller hailed the 22-year-old as “really reliable and has world-class potential” earlier in this season after being impressed with his performances in his side’s backline. For the time being, Liverpool seem to be fully focused on appointing a new manager and are reportedly having discussions with Feyenoord boss Arne Slot to take over the role from Jurgen Klopp. But it remains to be seen if they also push on to seal the signing Pacho quickly and rope in the centre-back in time for the start of the summer transfer window.
