Eintracht Frankfurt and Peruvian defender Carlos Zambrano is the latest defender to be linked with a move to Liverpool, as one of Eintracht Frankfurt’s club directors has confirmed that Liverpool are interested in Zambrano with him saying: “There is interest from Liverpool in Carlos Zambrano. They have asked about him, but there has not been an offer yet."
It is believed that Liverpool will be in the market for a new centre back in the summer partly due to the fact that Jamie Carragher is set to retire at the end of the season, with Liverpool been linked with countless defenders over the past few months.
Zambrano is the latest defender then to reportedly catch Liverpool’s eye, with his performances in the Bundesliga this season helping Eintracht Frankfurt to have a successful campaign so far with the team currently in fourth position in the Bundesliga table.
He started his youth career with Peruvian football club Academia Deportiva Cantolao before been brought over to Germany by Schalke at the age of 16 after impressing at the under 17 World Cup in 2005.
He didn’t manage however to secure a place in the first team though and was loaned out in 2010 to newly promoted St Pauli and spent the next two seasons with this club before his performances earned him a move to Eintracht Frankfurt in 2012 for an amount believed to be 1.2 million euros.
At international level he has 21 caps for Peru, with him making his debut for the senior Peruvian National Team in a friendly match against Costa Rica in 2008.
Liverpool probably are weighing up making a bid for the defender in the summer then as his transfer fee would not break the bank, and at only 23 years of age he is a young player who is highly rated with Eintracht Frankfurt boss Armin Veh claiming that the defender "would fit any of the top clubs in Europe."
