Liverpool ‘are interested in signing TWO Real Madrid players this summer’ as Arne Slot looks to build his squad ahead of his first season in charge

Liverpool are interested in signing two players from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports.

The Reds officially unveiled Arne Slot as their new manager earlier this week and the Dutchman revealed he has been working with staff behind the scenes to try and help improve the club.

That includes recruitment, with the Reds keen to improve on last season’s third place finish after dropping out of the title race in the back end of the season.

It’s likely that they will do business, with two recent Champions League winners reportedly on the shopping list of Slot as he looks to bolster his squad ahead of his first campaign in charge.

According to Estadio Deportivo, Liverpool are interested in signing both Rodrygo and Arda Guler this summer, though it remains unclear whether Madrid would be willing to part ways with either man.

Rodrygo has been one of the stars of Madrid over the last few years, scoring 10 goals in 34 LaLiga matches last season to help Los Blancos to a league and Champions League double.

In total, he has won two Champions Leagues and thee LaLigas with Madrid, and, at 23, still has plenty of room to improve.

Via UOL, it is reported that the Brazilian may push for a move away from the club due to the arrivals of Endrick and Kylian Mbappe, which will surely push him down the peckinng order in attack.

Primarily playing in a front three, Rodrygo prefers to play on the left, but already finds himself having to move onto the right due to Vinicius Jnr’s form on the other side.

Mbappe can play centrally, though has also been predominantly used on the left in his career, with teenager Endrick also favouring that position.

His contract runs until the summer of 2028, meaning it would be difficult for Liverpool to secure a permanent deal, though a loan agreement could be an option.

Elsewhere, the Reds have reportedly expressed interest in signing Arda Guler from the Spanish side.

Guler finished the season in good form for Madrid, in total scoring six goals in 10 games in a season that was plagued by injury.

Also an attacking player, Guler could find game time limited, but may be keen to increase his minutes as he looked to continue his development and try and make his way at Madrid.

Therefore, a loan move to Liverpool could be an option that is explored this summer in a move that could benefit all parties.

According to the report, Slot sees Guler as a primary target this summer, wit the 19-year-old catching the eye of a number of top European clubs with an impressive performance for Turkey against Georgia at Euro 2024.
