Liverpool preparing €50m for Barcelona defender Andreas Christensen Transfers

The contract with former Cameroon defender Joel Matip expires this season, and it is increasingly likely that he will leave the club outright. In addition, a generational change in the center backs is inevitable as Virgil van Dijk will turn 33 this July.

Interest in promising young defenders such as Chelsea defender Levi Colwill and Sporting defender Goncalo Inácio has been reported, but other young center backs from Europe and South America are frequently mentioned.

According to the Spanish newspaper Fichajes, Danish defender Andreas Christensen, who also used to play for Chelsea and moved to Barcelona on a free transfer in the summer of 2022, is on Liverpool’s list and they are preparing 50 million euros for him this summer.

Although not an absolute regular in La Liga, he has played 18 games so far. He has also made close to 100 appearances in the Premier League and has extensive experience in the Champions League and Europa League. He will soon exceed 70 games for the Danish national team.

In addition to his height of nearly 1.90 cm, he has solid technique with his feet. He is one of the most modern center backs and has the ability to compete for a place in the starting lineup.

However, his time at Chelsea was not a great success, and there is a strong possibility that he will be treated as the fourth best center back, and it is doubtful that he will be satisfied with that.

Also, 50 million euros is a lot of money for a player who will soon be 28 years old. It is hard to believe that Liverpool would consider it an appropriate amount, and a transfer is unlikely to become a reality.
