Liverpool to lure £56.8m Barcelona star with promise of starting role

Liverpool are ready to hand Marc-Andre ter Stegen a starting 11 spot in the squad if he accepts a move to join from Barcelona, Metro reports.

The 23-year-old emerged as manager Jurgen Klopp’s number one goalkeeping target as he hopes to lure the goalkeeper to Anfield during the January window.

Klopp is said to have total control of the club’s transfer dealings given that he agreed a deal with the board ahead of his appointment.

The Reds are now set to promise Ter Stegen a first team role in every competition in order to convince him to leave the Camp Nou and come to England, but may have to trigger his £56.8m release-clause in order to acquire his services.

Despite featuring in all four Champions League games for Barca, the Germany international is often overlooked by manager Luis Enrique for the team’s La Liga fixtures.

He only managed to get selected for four league matches while Chile international Claudio Bravo is often given the nod to start in the domestic campaign.
