An unnamed Premier League club has submitted an official offer for Liverpool target Jese Rodriguez, according to Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez.
Jese, who became a fan favourite at Real Madrid having progressed through the club’s youth system, joined PSG in a €25million deal in the summer but has failed to nail down a regular spot in Emery’s starting XI and has started just once in Ligue 1.
La Liga side Las Palmas, who are one of the clubs competing for the signature of Jese, can’t match the spending power of one Premier League club who are making their move for the 23-year-old, according to Ramirez.
‘I’ve been speaking with his representative and there is an English club that wants to pay everything,’ Ramirez was quoted as saying by Marca.
Having been hotly tipped to end his Parc de Princes nightmare this month, Liverpool were unveiled as one of the club’s competing for his signature by Ramirez as Jurgen Klopp bids to strengthen his squad for the second phase of the season.
‘Jese Rodriguez is a great footballer. He wants to come to Las Palmas, but he is owned by PSG and earns a salary that is of his level – and that is very high,’ he told Las Provincia earlier in the month.
‘Liverpool, Milan and Roma want Jese and are ready to pay what he earns. We cannot afford that salary.
‘With respect to other clubs, we are at a disadvantage and hence we have to wait. But we don’t want to create false expectations.’
