Liverpool: Football Insider drop Ben Davies claim

Liverpool: Football Insider drop Ben Davies claim -Liverpool News

Liverpool are reportedly willing to sanction the departure of Ben Davies this summer, according to Football Insider

The lowdown: A transfer misfit

Signed as part of a double deadline day swoop in January 2021, he arrived on Merseyside alongside Ozan Kabak as Jurgen Klopp addressed the urgent need for defensive reinforcements.

However, following his £1.6m move from Preston North End having seemingly been bound for Celtic (Sky Sports), the 26-year-old only made the bench on eight occasions, failing to even be handed a senior debut for the Reds.

Despite being talked up by Klopp, the lesser-seen centre-back was subsequently sent on loan to Sheffield United for the 2021/22 campaign and looks certain to leave Liverpool permanently this summer…

The latest: Liverpool happy to let Davies leave

As per a ‘Liverpool source’ for Football Insider, the Merseyside club have already informed Davies that he will be free to leave Anfield in the upcoming transfer window.

It’s claimed that the Reds will ‘listen to permanent and loan offers’ for the man who was described as ‘really good’ by Klopp following his arrival at the club last year.

The report claimed that a loan switch is ‘more likely’ due to Davies being under contract until 2025 (Transfermarkt), whilst also earning a lucrative £60,000-per-week salary.

The verdict: Simple decision

Coming into the job amidst the exit of Divock Origi, a backdrop of Sadio Mane exit rumours and contracts shrouded in speculation, new sporting director Julian Ward at least has one simple decision to make when it comes to Davies’ future at Liverpool.

Having been overlooked in favour of Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams initially, the English defender was rendered further surplus to requirements by the return to fitness of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, as well as the sensational debut campaign from Ibrahima Konate at Anfield.

Has Davies been Klopp's worst signing at Liverpool?

Yes

Yes

No

No

During 2021/22, Davies earned a 6.97 average Sofascore rating from 22 Championship outings, form which will hopefully have sufficiently impressed any prospective suitors to drum up interest in signing the £2.25m-valued man on a permanent basis.
