Scottish defender Andy Robertson is out injured. Greek defender Kostas Tsimikas is the backup, but his overall ability is not as good as the former Hull City defender.
In any case, both players are in their late twenties, and the time is approaching when it will be difficult for the athletic side-backs to reach their age.
It is not a position that needs immediate reinforcement, but a replacement will have to be found in the next few years.
According to Sports Zone, Paris Saint-Germain has joined the race for Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Rayan Aït-Nouri, who is also reported to be of interest from Liverpool, and a competition could take place as early as next January.
Under former manager Julen Lopetegui, he was given lower priority and limited playing time. Nevertheless, he has earned the trust of new manager Gary O’Neill and has been used regularly in 12 of his 13 Premier League appearances this season.
The 22-year-old left back joined Wolves from Angers in 2021 after a one-year loan move. Will he step up in the market this winter or next summer for further progress?
