Liverpool’s interest in Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapie continues this summer

Liverpool's interest in Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapie continues this summer Transfers

In addition to renewing its midfielders, Liverpool has also been interested in center backs. In particular, they are interested in left-handed defenders, and this summer there were reports of interest in Chelsea defender Levi Colwill and Sporting defender Goncalo Inácio.

As a result, the team prioritized the acquisition of a midfielder, bringing four players into the team but failing to secure a center back. Nevertheless, with Joel Matip out for an extended period of time, the possibility of reinforcing the position has increased.

According to Bild, Liverpool are interested in Bayer Leverkusen defender Piero Hincapié and could make a move for him this winter. The player’s name has also been mentioned during the summer and we continue to follow developments.

In addition, it is also reported that the transfer fee required is believed to be £60 million, which the club is aware is enough to get back considering the fact that the young center back is only 21 years old.

The Ecuadorian defender, who has attracted the interest of European clubs such as Newcastle United, AC Milan, and Roma, has made 15 appearances for the club, which has been in good form, but has failed to find regular playing time, with Europa League and cup competitions being his main competition.

The 21-year-old defender can also operate as a left back, but his potential and experience make him too expensive at £60 million. Liverpool is not likely to invest the same amount for a center back, and the impression is that this is only speculation.

The player has a contract with Leverkusen until June 2027, but will he ever step up from German soil in the transfer market this winter or next summer…?
