Liverpool want Gini Wijnaldum replacement that has £129m release clause – will cost £0 in 2023

Liverpool reportedly want Carlos Soler but they should wait to sign him in 2023 for free otherwise Valencia can demand his £129m release clause is paid in full, writes Michael Mongie.

According to Fichajes, Liverpool are interested in Carlos Soler as a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum.

The Spanish outlet reports that the Reds can negotiate a lower price for the 24-year-old due to his contract situation but Valencia can demand any interested parties pay his release clause.

According to Football Espana, his exit clause is set at €150million which is far higher than Liverpool would ever be willing to pay for him or any other player for that matter.

Carlos Soler

Soler is an interesting option for Liverpool even if it’s not one that will be arriving this year.

His ability to play as a no.6 or as a no.8 would give the Reds another versatile midfield option although he plays a different role at the base of the midfield compare to Fabinho.

While the Spaniard is more of a deep-lying playmaker, Fabinho is more of a play-breaker and should Liverpool sign Soler in January or next summer, I’d imagine he would play as a no.8.

It seems unlikely that the Valencia star would be deployed as Liverpool’s deepest midfielder if he did join as Jurgen Klopp likes that role to be filled by an enforcer and Soler’s strongest attributes are his passing and creativity.

Soler is brilliant, technically speaking. He’s not quite on the same level as Thiago but he’s definitely a very gifted player and if there’s genuine interest from the Reds, he’d be an interesting player to see develop under Jurgen Klopp.

He’s very similar to Florian Neuhaus and given that Liverpool had concrete interest in the German, it’s interesting to see the Anfield outfit linked with a player of the same profile.
