Mikel Oyarzabal has been urged to ditch Chelsea and follow Xabi Alonso’s path to Anfield, as he looks to leave Real Sociedad this summer. The high quality forward helped the Spanish U-21s win the European Championship earlier this year. He is wanted by a host of clubs across Europe, though the Premier League duo are the favourites to sign him.

He is mainly a winger that can play on either flank and this make him so dangerous and can give the manager a lot of options, with regards to the tactics that can be employed. Another added benefit is that, he can also play behind the striker or all alone up-front, which makes him an even bigger threat to the opposition defence.

The 22 year old superstar is already a Spain international and will only grow with time. This has caught the eye of a lot of clubs and the player has shown his intentions of moving away from his current club in this transfer window.

Though the Reds have a lot of quality within their squad, the Spaniard could make a name for himself at Anfield, if he does indeed sign for them. However, it will not be easy for the Merseyside outfit to bring him in, as there will be a lot of competition for the player’s signature.

In a recent interview with Marca, former Sociedad star Alberto Lopez stated that he thinks Liverpool would be the perfect destination for Oyarzabal. He said, “I really rate him. I do not think he has a lot of time left at Real Sociedad. He has so much talent and I think he could play in a great team like Chelsea and Liverpool.”

the champions of Europe have not done a lot of business in the current transfer window. They have not been spending like some of their other league and European rivals, though if they can get a player of this quality, it will surely be a huge signing for the future.

Working alongside Jurgen Klopp could really give this star the right kind of push that he needs to make a name for himself in the top flight of English football. On the other hand, it will help Liverpool win more titles surely, as they will now be targetting the Premier League.

The best time to sign the player will be now, with the west London outfit having a transfer ban and will not be able to push for a deal. If the Kops can take advantage of the current situation and bring him in, it will be a huge signing for them and the player will get enough time to settle in.

Whatever be the outcome of this transfer saga, the player is really highly rated and whichever team does eventually sign him, will surely be adding a future star to their squad. The Liverpool fans will be hoping that it is their club that signs him and they can compete with the likes of Manchester City, in the seasons to come.
