In addition to revamping their midfielders, Liverpool sought a left-handed center back. Names such as England defender Levi Colwill, who renewed his contract with Chelsea, and Dutch defender Mickey van de Ven, who moved to Tottenham, were discussed.
However, Liverpool ended the summer transfer window without acquiring anyone in the end, but they are still targeting young center backs. While they are said to be working on a deal for Portuguese defender Gonzalo Inácio, they are also eyeing the Premier League.
According to Tuttosport, AC Milan are also interested in Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly, who is rumored to be of interest to Liverpool and other European clubs, and could be in a battle with Juventus, also from Serie A, and Burnley from England.
The 25-year-old left-handed center back can also play as a left back. He has played 37 games in the Premier League and more than 100 in the Championship, giving him plenty of experience playing in England.
With his contract expiring in June 2024, it is increasingly likely that the Bristol-born center back will leave the team.
Can Liverpool succeed in acquiring a left-handed center back? And will it be the Bournemouth defender?
