Liverpool: Reds make contact to sign Milan Skriniar

Liverpool: Reds make contact to sign Milan Skriniar -Liverpool News

Liverpool have made contact to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar this month, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Open to negotiations

The Slovakian has now entered the final six months of his deal at the San Siro, meaning that he is able to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with potential suitors, and there are clubs lining up at his door to land him on a free transfer.

Premier League sides Manchester City, Chelsea, Newcastle and Manchester United have all been credited with an interest in the centre-back, though it sounds like Jurgen Klopp is keen to hijack a move and instead bring him to Anfield.

The Latest: Liverpool considering Skriniar

According to 90min, the Reds have ‘reached out’ to Inter to ‘discuss the possibility’ of Skriniar moving to Merseyside this window.

Simone Inzaghi’s outfit ‘want to keep’ the 27-year-old, but ‘would consider parting ways’ should he refuse to put pen to paper on fresh terms.

January offers could potentially ‘spark a bidding war’ between the interested clubs, though ultimately it will be down to the player himself whether he decides to leave now or wait until the summer.

The Verdict: Van Dijk replacement

Liverpool favourite Virgil Van Dijk has recently been ruled out of action for more than a month with a hamstring injury so Skriniar would be the perfect temporary replacement.

The Serie A colossus has an impressive 91.9% pass success rate, showing that he’s calm and collected playing out from the back, but also poses a threat in the final third having posted 15 goal contributions during his time at Inter.

Skriniar is the captain of Slovakia so holds excellent leadership qualities in the same way Van Dijk does, and having been hailed a ‘monster’ by Carlo Garganese, he’s the ideal signing for FSG.
