"Price will be more than €60M": Fabrizio Romano says Liverpool must pay full price to complete signing

Liverpool's search for a new centre-back has led them to consider Sporting Lisbon centre back Goncalo Inacio, though his hefty valuation of over £51 million poses a significant challenge.

As Liverpool prepare for the departure of Joel Matip and contemplates the future under a new manager following Jurgen Klopp's exit next season, Inacio emerges as a potentially ideal addition to their defense.

Liverpool must pay full release clause to sign Inacio

Fabrizio Romano, speaking exclusively to Give Me Sport, underscored Sporting's firm stance on their valuation, stating that the Portuguese champions elect are not willing to lower their price for Inacio.

Despite being just 22 years old, Inacio's extensive experience, including over 100 league games and appearances for the Portugal national team, makes him a highly sought-after talent.

Liverpool's interest in Inacio could intensify if Ruben Amorim joins the Anfield club.

Amorim's potential appointment might strengthen the lure for Inacio, considering their previous successful collaboration at Sporting.

However, Romano notes that the acquisition of Inacio is not yet advanced, with Liverpool continuing to scout the young defender extensively.

He said: "They've been following him for a long, long time, but at the same time, he is an expensive player.

"The price will be more than €60 million. I don't think Sporting will make any discount to any club for a player like Goncalo Inacio."

Why are Liverpool tracking Inacio ahead of the transfer window?

The departure of Matip will leave Liverpool with Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, and young Jarell Quansah as central defensive options, highlighting the need for reinforcements.

If Amorim does take over at Liverpool, his influence could be decisive in persuading Inacio to make the move, especially as Sporting contemplates cashing in on its assets, which include other rising stars like Viktor Gyokeres and Ousmane Diomande.

As the managerial and player transfer sagas unfold, Liverpool's strategies and choices in the upcoming transfer window will be crucial in shaping the team for the post-Klopp era.

Let's just hope they make the right moves at the right prices!
