Transfer fee of €60m...Liverpool are in pole position in the battle for Goncalo Inácio Transfers

Next season Liverpool will be transformed into a new team due to the departure of manager Jurgen Klopp, who has led the team since 2015. The management team will change and the key coaches will be revamped, while a reinforcement plan is planned for this summer’s transfer window.

In addition to attacking players, Liverpool aims to secure a centre-back. While preparing for the departure of the experienced Joel Matip, they are also keen on left-footed defenders as part of an overall generational change in the final line and as a new option for their current all-right-handed centre-back line-up.

According to Caught Offside, Liverpool are currently in pole position over Sporting defender Goncalo Inácio, who has been rumoured to be of interest since the start of the season throughout. In addition, the report also states that the transfer fee is expected to be €60 million.

The 22-year-old Portuguese defender has been promoted to the first team since 2020. He has been the mainstay of the team this season and has been on the pitch for more than 40 games throughout the Liga Bévin and Europa League.

He has made over ‘160’ appearances in total for Sporting and has also played six games for the Portuguese national team. The modern centre-back has good technique with his feet and his passing up front and into midfield is first class. He has now developed into one of the best young defenders in the world.

Other clubs such as Manchester United and Newcastle United are also interested in the Portuguese defender, but will he be making the step up in the transfer market this summer and landing in England…?
