Liverpool or Bayern...Xabi Alonso wants to move with Leverkusen defender Edmond Tapsoba Transfers

Last summer, the midfielder left the team after many years of service under Jurgen Klopp. And the coach will also leave the team at the end of the season. In addition, Joel Matip and Thiago Alcántara, both 32 years old, are also set to leave at the end of their contracts.

Liverpool acquired a number of midfielders last summer, but the final line is a point of reinforcement this summer. Various center back names have been floated, including Sporting defender Goncalo Inácio and Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, but plans may change if Xabi Alonso is born.

According to The Mirror, the Spanish coach of Bayer Leverkusen is hoping to also take 25-year-old defender Edmond Tapsoba from the same team, whether the new club is Liverpool or Bayern Munich.

The Burkina Faso defender, who plays in the Bundesliga, has played for the club since the winter of 2020. He has made 169 appearances so far and has extensive experience on the European stage, including the Champions League and Europa League.

He has started many games since Xabi Alonso took over and is a trusted member of the team. According to Metro, Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle, and Tottenham Hotspur have also expressed interest.

The former Vitoria defender is under contract until June 2028 and is expected to demand 70 million euros. This would be one of the top transfer fees for a defender, but will the Burkina Faso center back be playing for a new club next season…?
