Liverpool eye up Bundesliga ace
According to Daily Mail, the Merseyside club have enquired about the Peruvian centre-back, valued at around £4.5 million.
The versatile player can operate as a right-back or defensive midfielder and is actively contributing to the good season Eintrach are having, with Die Adler (The Eagles) currently in fourth place fighting to qualify for a Champions League sport next year.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers faces the difficult task of renewing the defence, with Jamie Carragher retiring at the end of the season and the possible departure of other players, such as Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger or Sebastian Coates.
The club could be signing at least three defenders and the 23 year-old’s versatility could come handy to cover injuries, adapt the line up according to the rival or simply try new formations.
Zambrano arrived in 2006 to Schalke 04, joining the youth scheme until his senior debut in 2009. Loaned later on to St. Pauli, the Peruvian missed part of the last season due to a fractured toe and the team got relegated.
He then joined Eintrach, where he has found stability playing in the heart of the back-four. Manager Armin Veh has reportedly named him as the leader of Frankfurt’s defence. Zambrano is also international with the Peruvian national team.
