Liverpool’s midfielders are much improved with the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, but pressure from Saudi Arabia has forced the club to once again look for midfielders in the transfer market.
Brazilian midfielder Fabinho is almost certain to leave the club, and Jordan Henderson will be dealt with if a fee can be agreed upon.
Meanwhile, the club has not forgotten about center backs, which it has been looking to strengthen for some time, and is interested mainly in left-handed players, with Chelsea defender Levi Colwill at the top of the list.
Liverpool, which has Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, is not interested in right-handed center backs, but according to Christian Falk, Liverpool, along with Chelsea and Barcelona, are still interested in French defender Benjaman Pavard.
“Yeah, of course. He’s an interesting player for the Premier League. Chelsea are always in talks with his management; Liverpool are in talks with his management, Barcelona as well, but Barcelona don’t have the money at the moment. They would like to have him as a free agent next summer.”GIVEMESPORT
His contract with Bayern Munich expires in 2024, but he has stated that he will not renew it and is likely to be released this summer. He has also been linked with a move to Manchester City to replace England defender Kyle Walker, who is rumored to be joining the German champions.
The experienced 27-year-old defender, who has played 174 games in the Bundesliga and 49 for France, can play right back and center back.
With James Milner out, Liverpool is expected to deal with young defenders Conor Bradley and Gomez, although the reserve of Trent Alexander-Arnold is a concern for Liverpool.
At this point, it is unlikely that Liverpool will change their mind and make a move for the right-handed defender, and he is a lock to join Manchester City or Chelsea. Will Benjamin Pavard make his first Premier League landing this summer…?
