Liverpool

are planning to sign

Villarreal

's Alex Baena in 2023.

The 21-year-old star was transferred from the reserve team to Villarreal's first team in August and has performed brilliantly during this time. He spent the last season on loan in Girona and returned to Castellon while trying to be influential in Unai Emery's plans and managed to score three goals in his 6 games this season.

According to the Daily Mirror, two Premier League clubs have been monitoring his condition since his arrival at Villarreal's academy and plan to make a move for him next summer. His release clause is currently 25 million euros, which the club is trying to increase in its contract extension program.

It is possible that other Premier League clubs will enter the fight for Baena and start a new competition. However, the Spanish star prefers to go to a team that is in the Champions League and can play football at the highest level. In this way, the results of this season's teams will be influential in recruiting him, and it should be seen how Arsenal and Liverpool will finish at the end of the season.
