Liverpool Make Enticing Offer for Champions League Winner as He’s Open to Premier League Return

Liverpool are eager to strengthen their squad in the transfer market by recruiting an seasoned winner.

In the ongoing January transfer window, Liverpool are actively pursuing a Champions League winner, presenting an enticing offer to a European rival.

Jurgen Klopp, faced with challenges such as Mohamed Salah’s 21-28 day injury, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s fitness struggles, and Joel Matip’s season-ending absence, recognizes the necessity for new additions to sustain Liverpool’s push for the Premier League title.

Sitting at the top of the Premier League table, Liverpool are concurrently engaged in the Europa League, FA Cup, and League Cup, intensifying the demand on their squad. Klopp is keen on fortifying the team by making an offer for an experienced star.

According to reports from Spanish outlet El Nacional, Liverpool have submitted an offer for Real Madrid defender Antonio Rudiger, who is reportedly considering a return to the Premier League.

Rudiger has played a pivotal role as Carlos Ancelotti’s primary center-back this season, featuring in 18 out of Real Madrid’s 20 La Liga matches, underscoring his significance to the team. Despite his key role, the 30-year-old’s current contract with the Bernabeu is set to expire in June 2026, potentially making Real Madrid less urgent to secure a long-term deal.

Liverpool’s offer has the potential to prompt Real Madrid into action to extend Rudiger’s tenure. While the indications are that Rudiger leans towards staying with Real Madrid and is pressuring the club hierarchy for an improved contract, Liverpool’s interest provides an appealing option for a return to the Premier League.

Rudiger previously enjoyed a successful stint at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea, winning the Champions League, Europa League, and FA Cup during his five seasons before making the switch to Real Madrid in 2022.

Considering Liverpool’s current defensive needs, Rudiger presents good value, valued at just over £20m by Transfermarkt. His experience makes him an attractive option to seamlessly partner with Virgil van Dijk in the Reds backline.
