Reports indicated that Liverpool set its eye on the inclusion of an alternative to Croatian Diane Lovrin, where Jimenez was at the top of the list of wanted for the restoration of defense in addition to the duo Alessandro Pastoni defender Inter Milan and Dyut Obamecano defender Leipzig.
Team coach Juergen Klopp plans to include a young defender with the ability to master air games and with the ability to build attacks, and that Jiménez fits his ideas and plans.
The crisis lies in the adherence of Atletico Madrid officials to the player’s services, as it is linked to an official contract that ends in the summer of 2023, with a penalty clause of 120 million euros.
Despite the confidence of Diego Simeone, Rooky coach Blancos in Jimenez, his role has declined dramatically in the team’s matches this season, as he participated in only 16 games in all competitions and recorded his presence in the team’s last match against Liverpool in the Champions League.
The pair Stefan Savic and Felipe proved themselves in the starting lineup of the team, as they formed a defensive double for Atlético Madrid in the matches, which complicated Jiménez’s position, who is seriously considering leaving after seven full seasons he spent between the club’s walls.
Club is considering defending the defense, which has suffered greatly this season during the matches because of the decline in the level of all defensive elements, which cost them farewell to the Champions League early.
