Liverpool closely monitoring 25-year-old technically gifted winger

Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Deportivo Guadalajara forward Alexis Vega. Mexico international has attracted the interest of the Reds with his displays recently. The report adds that Vega is being monitored by Chelsea and Real Madrid as well.

Alexis is naturally a left-sided forward but he can operate as a striker and a right-winger as well. His versatility will be a bonus for the Merseyside giants if they manage to add him. The 24-year-old winger has a deal with Guadalajara until the summer of 2024 and he could be available for a nominal price at the end of this campaign.

The Mexican forward will have just one year left on his contract in the summer and it stays to be seen whether the Reds can snap him up on a bargain. Jurgen Klopp could use more depth in the wide areas and Alexis could be a useful addition. Currently, Luis Diaz is the only left-sided winger on the side.

Liverpool have had to use Jota and Carvalho in the wide positions in the absence of the Colombian. Vega could act as a cover for the former Porto star if he moves to Liverpool. Vega has three goals and four assists to his name this campaign and it will be interesting to see if he is willing to accept the role of a squad player in order to join a big club.
