Confirmed: 'Amazing' €16m goal-machine who 'could sign for Liverpool' may 'leave' soon

Luciano Vietto continues to be linked with a move to Anfield, and with speculation mounting over a possible transfer, the 'amazing' striker's agent has given the strongest indication yet that a summer move is on the cards.

With 20 goals/8 assists in 40 games for Villareal, Vietto is storming it this season, and when asked on Thursday about the striker's future, his agent, Jorge Cyterszpiler noted:

"He [Vietto] might leave in the summer. It is normal that the best clubs in the world are after him.

"If big clubs make an offer, we need to talk. The offer must be very good, not only for us but also for Villarreal."

The story so far:

* Sep 2012: Liverpool sent scouts to watch Vietto in action for Racing Club.

* Oct 2012: TalkSport reported: "Liverpool will battle it out with Juventus, PSG and Real Madrid to sign Argentinian starlet Luciano Vietto"

* May 2013: Vietto's agent claimed: "The whole world wants Vietto, including Liverpool, Real Madrid, Juventus and other international clubs. Vietto is the best young player in Argentina. "

* Oct 2013: According to the Daily Mail: "Liverpool and Manchester City are among clubs to have asked about Luciano Vietto. Both clubs have been monitoring his development for over a year"

* Feb 2014: Vietto's agent claimed: "There is so much competition, and we have talked to top-level clubs like Real Madrid [and] Liverpool"

* Feb 2014: In a separate interview the same month, Vietto's agent added: "Luciano is playing at a very good level. Real Madrid and Liverpool have showed a serious interest."

* Dec 2014: The Mirror claimed: "Brendan Rodgers wants Luciano Vietto to replace old Liverpool favourite Luis Suarez"

* Mar 2015: Reports claim that Vietto is Liverpool's top transfer target, and that Rodgers is 'confident' of closing a deal.

* Mar 2015: When specifically asked about Liverpool's interest in early-March, €16m-rated Vietto told Spanish newspaper AS: "If these great teams come forward and make an offer we’ll see. The offer would first have to be very good, but it would be very good for me and good for Villarreal."

* Mar 2015: Vietto's agent confirmed: "Big clubs are watching Vietto. He could sign for Liverpool, we know that he is admired by the Reds"

As you can see, Liverpool have been chasing Vietto for a long time (!)

And it's not only paper talk - as the repeated assertions from his Agent attest, this is one of those situations where the rumours match the reality, and if the Reds have been after Vieto for three years, then hopefully there is a big chance of actually sealing the deal.

    Be great signing this is the time so we shud offer a price thy cant refuse then go to argintina go to a team called banfeild and sign there atacken midfeilder jaun cazares

  3. He looks ok, bit of a fox in the box type player and should suit our style of play, wonder if we could get the deal done if other teams are also interested. I've also been looking at Youtube video of Dybala he looks a very bit good, very strong and very tricksy.

  4. Cazares? He's 22. He's 5'7" and weighs 134 pounds. Can you imagine somebody like Geoff Cameron or Ron Vlaar completing a crunching tackle on 134 pound guy? "He coulda killed the boy" comes to mind.
