Liverpool are currently tracking the situation of Espanyol’s right-back Marc Navarro, according to the reports from Mundo Deportivo.
The 21-year-old Barcelona-born Spanish full-back has been hailed as one for the future having made a senior appearance for the side only last month. The youngster scored a goal in their 3-1 win over Granada back in January and became the first youth graduate to score a goal since 1997.
That wasn’t it for the youngster, as Navarro gave a man of the match performance a week later as he both scored and assist a goal in their whopping 3-1 win over Sevilla and this was enough to attract interest from the top clubs.
Keeping that prospect in mind, Espanyol knew that the offers will come, hence, they were quick to offer him a new contract which the player signed and that will keep him at Espanyol until 2021.

With such an amazing start to his career, Mundo Deportivov has reported that Liverpool are having a certain interest in the player, but in fairness, this deal might raise a few eyebrows as Jurgen Klopp already have Nathaniel Clyne and Trent Alexander-Arnold as his deputy in the right-back role.
Standing at 6ft 1in, he would be a perfect fit for the Premier League encounter. Furthermore, he is known for his powerful runs on the flanks and that is the trait that might have attracted Jurgen Klopp.
However, a major stumbling block in the move would be his €25m release clause and spending that much of capital for a player, who came into the limelight only last month, makes no real sense.
Liverpool, on their part, surely needs a defensive reinforcement, but the right-back slot should be of least concern. What they need primarily is a left back as Alberto Moreno has failed completely to prove his worth, while Milner remains the only viable option for the club and should any injury happens, they will be in trouble for sure.
