England defender Trent Alexander-Arnold is an absolute regular at right back for Liverpool. However, his reserve is not set in stone, and veteran midfielder James Milner, who played the same position in many games last season, has left the team.
The 20-year-old defender Conor Bradley, whom we had high hopes for, suffered an injury during preseason and has not played even a single game. Former Charlton defender Joe Gomez currently doubles as a center back, but the team would like to have a reliable backup like Greek international Kostas Tsimikas at left back.
According to Calciomercato, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United are interested in Inter Milan’s Dutch defender Denzel Dumfries, and a battle could develop.
The 27-year-old defender, who has a contract with the Serie A club until 2025, joined Inter from PSV Eindhoven in 2021 and has contributed both offensively and defensively with his powerful attack and athleticism. He has played over 100 games for the club and has become an integral part of the team.
Liverpool is in need of a reserve right back, but the Dutch side is considering the Dutch international as a regular, and will only make a move for him if Trent Alexander-Arnold does not sign a contract extension.
At this point, Liverpool is not expected to make a serious move, and in addition to Bradley, Scotland U-21 defender Calvin Ramsay will also gain experience on loan, so it is not a position that needs urgent reinforcement.
Will the tall side-back leave the club that reached the Champions League final last season to take on a new challenge in next summer’s transfer market?
