Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk, who is an absolute leader and organizes the final line. The French defender Ibrahima Konate, who is a match-winner in many games with his incredible speed and physicality behind Trent Alexander-Arnold, is one of the best center backs in the Premier League.
Liverpool has one of the best center-back duos in the Premier League, but there are concerns about their reserves. In addition to his age and Trent’s change of role, Joel Matip has not shown the performances of his prime, and Joe Gomez’s erratic play makes him hard to be calculated.
Nathaniel Phillips is rumored to be on his way out, and young defender Jarell Quansah is inexperienced. Liverpool, who were expected to acquire a left-handed center back this summer, have been making moves in the final stages of the transfer market, and Ecuadorian defender Piero Hincapié from Bayer Leverkusen has emerged as the leading candidate.
Ben Jacobs, a sports journalist, posted new information about the player’s transfer, suggesting that he could be available for around £35 million.
“Hincapie would love a move to the Premier League. Still no offers. Could be available for £35m. Anything around this price and I understand Hincapie would push for the move.”

In comparison to other media reports, which have estimated the cost to be nearly twice as much, such as £70 million, £35 million is a bargain for a promising center back who is under contract until 2027 and is only 21 years old. In the ever-inflating world of football.
Will Liverpool be able to acquire their long-sought-after left-handed center back this summer?
