Liverpool have been linked with a move for Real Sociedad’s Mikel Oyarzabal, according to the Mirror.

The young Spaniard is reportedly on his way out of the La Liga side, with a number of clubs monitoring his situation.

Oyarzabal plays primarily as a winger but can also operate as a centre-forward. He was part of the Spain squad that beat Germany in the European Under-21 Championships in Italy this summer.

The 22-year-old bagged two goals and also notched an assist in the final of the tournament, with Sociedad now set for a fight to keep him as suitors line up for his signature.

Former Sociedad player Alberto Lopez believes Oyarzabal would thrive in the Premier League and has tipped him to join Liverpool or Chelsea in the summer.

“I really rate him. I don’t think he has a lot of time left at Real Sociedad,” Lopez told Marca.

“He has so much talent and I think he could play in a great team like Chelsea and Liverpool.”

Jurgen Klopp has repeatedly stressed that the Reds won’t be overly active in the transfer window this summer, but a move for Oyarzabal could represent good business, with Liverpool open to new attacking additions.
