Liverpool put Cheryshev on stand-by if move for Teixeira fail
Liverpool are reportedly weighing up a fresh move for Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev.
The 25-year-old has struggled for game time with the La Liga giants, featuring just twice in the league all season and failing to make a matchday squad under new manager Zinedine Zidane.
Speaking after his side thrashed Espanyol 6-0 at the Bernabeu last night, Zidane said of Cheryshev: “We’ll see tomorrow but yes, Cheryshev could leave.
He’s a great player but he needs to play.” According to The Mirror, the Russian international could be available for £7m and will be on Liverpool’s radar today if they fail to land top target Alex Teixeira from Shakhtar Donetsk.
