Lloyd Kelly, who is also of interest to Liverpool and Arsenal, is leaning towards signing for Newcastle Transfers

Top Premier League clubs are interested in 25-year-old defender Lloyd Kelly, whose contract with his Bournemouth club expires at the end of the season. Liverpool, who are looking for a new centre-back, also have an experienced defender on their list, who is also experienced in England’s top flight.

In addition to Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle United have also approached the centre-back, who could be available on a free transfer along with Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, who is also out of contract with Fulham.

According to Caught Offside, with offers arriving as the season draws to a close, the former Bristol City defender seems to like the offer from Newcastle the most and a move to the north of England is a real possibility.

Since the Saudi Arabian multi-millionaire bought the club, aggressive reinforcements have taken the club to the Champions League this season. It has been pointed out that the club has paid a lot of transfer fees for some of the best players in the world, including Alexander Isak and Bruno Guimarães, which could violate Financial Fair Play.

While reports are circulating that star players are to be sold, there are also circumstances where they cannot spend much money on acquisitions, making players who can be added to the squad without a transfer fee ideal reinforcements.

Liverpool are also interested in other young centre-backs such as Sporting defender Goncalo Inácio and Frankfurt defender William Pacho, and the Bournemouth defender is not the only candidate as scouting continues for the right man among a number of targets.

The player’s injury history is also a concern, with periods out of action every season. Furthermore, he has never played in the Europa League, let alone the Champions League, so it remains to be seen how far he can go against top-level opposition.

Nevertheless, he is a valuable left-back who can also be used at left-back, so he should have no trouble finding a new club. Liverpool are unlikely to be the frontrunners in the race for him, but which club will the 25-year-old defender end up playing for…?
