According to a recent report by the Express, Liverpool are being linked with a move for Athletico Bilbao winger Iker Muniain despite the player penning a new deal with the club recently which runs out in the summer of 2024. The same report has also stated that the Spaniard does not have a release clause in his new contract.
The Pamplona born talent came through the youth ranks of Bilbao before breaking into their first-team in the summer of 2009. He has slowly established himself as one of the stars of the Basque-based outfit and has been a constant presence of their attack over the past few years.
Muniain has already put in some scintillating displays for the La Liga side during the course of this campaign. The 26-year-old has made 17 appearances for Gaizka Garitano’s side this term, scoring four goals while creating two assists across all competitions. He has also managed to earn one international cap for the Spanish national team during his career so far.
The Spanish prospect primarily operates on the left flank but can also play as a secondary striker which makes him a valuable asset for Bilbao. So it is no surprise that the club has tied him down to a new, long-term contract.
Muniain is an excellent dribbler with the ball at his feet and is always willing to run at the opposition defenders using his quickness and agility. He can also link up play well in the attacking third of the pitch and knows how to find the back of the net from inside the opposition penalty box.
The addition of someone of Muniain’s talents will undoubtedly bolster Jurgen Klopp’s attacking options at Anfield. Liverpool have a plethora of options going forward with the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi, and Daniel Sturridge all fighting for a place in the Reds’ starting XI. The potential acquisition of Muniain will add more competition for places within Klopp’s squad, so it makes sense for Liverpool to go all out in pursuit of his signature.
The Spaniard will be a great fit at Anfield if the Reds can find a way to lure him to Merseyside in the near future.
