Report: Arne Slot identifies a “remarkable” talent as his desired signing during discussions with Liverpool…



According to the report, Arne Slot has expressed his interest in signing a “sensational” star during his talks with Liverpool.


During discussions with Liverpool, Arne Slot has reportedly singled out a “sensational” star as a player he aims to sign, as per the report.


Arne Slot officially assumed the role of Liverpool’s new head coach on June 1st.


According to reports, the former Feyenoord boss has already engaged in discussions with Liverpool bosses regarding a potential move for Santiago Gimenez.


This summer, the Mexico international is being pursued by several prominent European clubs. It is common for a new manager to be associated with players from their past and present teams when they take charge of a football club.


In this case, Liverpool has been linked with various players who have previously played under Arne Slot. One such player is Teun Koopmeiners, who currently represents Atalanta but had previously played under Slot at AZ Alkmaar.


Another player who has been loosely linked to Liverpool in recent weeks is Orkun Kokcu from Benfica, who previously served as captain under Slot at Feyenoord.


Liverpool is considering a move for Feyenoord striker Santiago Gimenez, who has impressed journalist Graeme Bailey.


The 23-year-old player had a successful season under Slot, starting in most of the club’s Eredivisie matches. Despite their achievements in the league and KNVB Cup, Feyenoord faced setbacks in European competitions.


Reports suggest that Slot has spoken to Liverpool’s management about Gimenez’s potential in the Premier League.


However, it is uncertain if this will lead to a formal interest in the player, who is tied to Feyenoord until 2027 and could demand a significant transfer fee.


Gimenez attracts attention from Europe’s top clubs

Liverpool faces tough competition.


The current transfer record of £81.3m paid by Manchester United for Antony from Ajax in 2022 remains unbroken.


Following closely behind are Frenkie de Jong, who joined Barcelona in 2019, and Matthijs de Ligt, who made the move to Juventus in the same year.


Gimenez, a highly sought-after player, has attracted interest from not only Liverpool but also Tottenham, another Premier League rival, and AC Milan, a prominent Serie A club.


AC Milan’s interest in Gimenez is fueled by the departure of Olivier Giroud, and according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport, they consider him a significant target for this summer.


Nevertheless, GIVEMESPORT has gathered information indicating that Tottenham is ramping up their pursuit of the striker and has identified him as a top priority for this summer’s transfer window.


Following the departure of their star player Harry Kane a year ago, it appears that Spurs are now prepared to sever their ties with Richarlison as well, with Gimenez emerging as a highly regarded candidate to fill the void.
