Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers would wish the January transfer window can’t come any faster for him. As goalkeeper Simon Mignolet keeps on repeating mistakes game after game, the Reds are on the lookout for a goalkeeper who can bring the calmness under the sticks. According to reports from METRO , Liverpool have now set their eyes on Fiorentina’s Brazilian custodian Neto.
The 25 year old Fiorentina goal keeper is on good form and the Anfield side are willing to offer Neto a contract worth £125,000-a-week in order to complete his move to Merseyside. Neto’s contract with the Florence based side is set to expire in the summer and there have been no talks over a possible contract extension.
Offering £125,000-a-week salary is definitely a gamble but if they manage to get him cheap or free (end of the season), then it’s a good deal for the Reds.
Best option available for Fiorentina is to either sell their goalkeeper in January rather than lose him on a free in the coming summer or convince Neto to sign a contract extension with them.
However, there were signs that Neto could sign a contract extension at Fiorentina with reports fromItalian media. Neto currently earns €650,000-per-season. But a new deal might see him earn a basic salary of €2m.
