Liverpool could have stolen Josko Gvardiol, the Chelsea target from under their nose after he admitted his love for the Reds. The attraction of Anfield proved to be effective in the past as Fernando Torres moved to Merseyside in 2007 after childhood admiration for the club had been exposed.
Torres was the striker that had been in demand in Europe when he had picked Liverpool as his destination. The blond-hair striker had been scoring rapidly and at a consistent rate at Atletico Madrid. However, fans became savvy to his love for Liverpool when a hidden message inside the armband of the captain had been caught on camera that read that he is never going to walk alone.
The Spaniard had been an instant hit at Anfield with 24 goals in the Premier League in the first season and soon he became a cult hero. Guardiola could have achieved similar status after he made his love for the club public in a recent interview.
When he was asked which club he would like to play for as a youngster, he said it is going to be Liverpool. Since she had been little, he had watched my matches with his dad and covered every Liverpool season in detail. He said that the club has been in his heart since childhood.
The Reds could use the admission of the center-back as a platform for stealing his signature from the grasp of Chelsea. Liverpool is not linked with defensive reinforcements this winter but Virgil van Dijk is ready for a spell on the sidelines. Also, Joe Gomez has been disappointed when he had been called upon this season.
The battle to acquire Gvardiol until the summer, irrespective of Chelsea welcoming Benoit Badiashile from Monaco with a deal of £ 35 million.
