• Camavinga joined Real Madrid in the 2021 summer
  • Real Madrid paid $34 million for the midfielder
  • Camavinga has scored only one goal so far this season

Liverpool FC are reportedly interested in signing midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, who is frustrated at Real Madrid due to lack of game time.

Camavinga joined Real Madrid from Rennes at $34 million in the summer of 2021 and is contracted until 2027. Citing the length of the contract, Los Blancos are valuing the Frenchman at $51 million. Liverpool believe Camavinga fits "perfectly" in Jurgen Klopp’s style of play and therefore, the Reds are ready to pay the said asking price for the midfielder, reported Catalan publication El Nacional.

Camavinga had received quite a few offers last summer but he chose Real Madrid because of Florentino Perez’s promise of more game time, which is not happening at present, leaving the young midfielder frustrated in the Spanish capital.

The 19-year-old Camavinga already has "regrets" about the choice he made ahead of the 2021-22 season and is "considering" an exit, just months after his arrival as he wants to play where he is "guaranteed" more game time, according to soccer website Teamtalk.

Camavinga doesn’t feature in Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti’s first-choice midfield which comprises Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric. In addition, Fede Valverde more often than not is called ahead of Camavinga off the bench these days.

Out of the 16 times Camavinga has been in Real Madrid’s squad in La Liga in the underway campaign, he has played only in 13 of those fixtures. While he has managed to bag only five starts in the league, he has played full 90 minutes only twice so far in La Liga.

On his Real Madrid debut, Camavinga came off the bench and scored in his side’s 5-2 victory over Celta Viga. That remains his only goal so far for this season, while he has provided an assist as well, which came on his Champions League debut for Los Blancos.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are seeing Camavinga as a long-term replacement for Gini Wijnaldum, who left Anfield in the 2021 summer to join Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on a free transfer.

Liverpool did not sign a replacement for the Dutchman immediately as they brought back Harvey Elliot, who was on loan at Blackburn Rovers. The young player had begun to make a good impression in midfield at the start of the 2021-22 campaign before suffering a serious injury.
