Angel Correa will only consider a move to Anfield if Liverpool offer a contract worth £4m a season, according to reports in France.

French outlet Foot Mercato, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that the Reds have already offered the Atletico Madrid striker a deal which amounts to £2.6m a year.

The same article states that the 22-year-old isn’t afraid to play hard-ball with the Merseyside outfit in an attempt to get a better contract.

According to the story, Liverpool will have to pay Atletico Madrid in the region of £25m to convince the La Liga giants to sell their promising striker.

Correa scored four times and made eight assists in 10 starts and 24 substitute appearances in the Spanish top flight last season.

The Argentinean forward, who netted four times in the Copa del Rey, was behind Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres in the pecking order at Vicente Calderon last term.

Liverpool have signed England Under-20 international Dominic Solanke in a free transfer from Premier League champions Chelsea.

The Reds have also completed a £36.7m deal for AS Roma and Egypt winger Mohamed Salah.
