Ocampos impressing with Sevilla
Lucas Ocampos joined Sevilla in the summer of 2019 from Marseille.
The Spaniard’s are believed to have paid around £13.5m to bring the winger to the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.
Ocampos has since established himself as an integral member of Sevilla’s attack, featuring 75 times across all competitions.
The Argentine would notch 17 goals and five assists in 44 outings last term, playing a key role in Sevilla clinching yet another Europa League title.
The winger has since enjoyed a decent 2020/21 as well, scoring seven and assisting four so far.
Liverpool linked with Sevilla’s Ocampos
And he now appears to be attracting interest from a top Premier League side.
As per a report from Spanish outlet Larazon, citing Calciomercato, Sevilla need to make a big sale, with both Jules Kounde and Ocampos viewed as potential options.
In terms of teams interested in Ocampos, it is claimed that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to take the 26-year-old to Anfield.
However, the report also claims that Ocampos’ current deal with Sevilla, which runs until 2024, has a €65m release clause.
So, at that fee, should Liverpool really be looking at Ocampos.
The winger, who can play on either flank, is a decent player and would no doubt be a useful option for the Merseysiders.
However, it is hard to imagine him being used more frequently than both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
That would see Ocampos used in a back-up role, similar to that of Diogo Jota and Takumi Minamino before he joined Southampton on loan.
And whilst Ocampos may be more effective than the latter of that duo, spending €65m for a squad player does seem quite odd.
