Liverpool Message Board
Liverpool and Benfica have agreed the transfer of Paraguayan left back Lorenzo Melgarejo subject to a work permit. Melgarejo will move to Anfield on an initial single-season loan with Liverpool holding an option to make the transfer permanent for a fee of less than €10million next summer. (I'd hope 6-7M not 10)
To be honest, I wasn't in love with Cisshokho from what I had seen at Valencia, he was far more impressive at Lyon, and didn't seem much of an upgrade to Enrique other than being faster and taller. This guy, reminds me a lot of Insua, and can really get forward. I'm not sure about his defending, but we'll see, and I suppose watch this space for LFC to confirm on the website.
It has been on radio and papers last couple of days. Talksport said this morning that the deal is £7.8m (prob not far off 10m Euro) at the end of the year based on an appearance based lock in to take up the option. He is due at Melwood for a medical on Wednesday and the personal terms have already been agreed.
