Many Liverpool fans have been left to laud a transfer update as Diario Madridista have reported their interest in signing Raphael Varane from Real Madrid.
As per the news outlet, the Anfield faithful have the joined the race along with their bitter rivals Manchester United and also Paris Saint Germain for his signature, with his current deal at the Bernabeu ending in 2022.
Should Liverpool sign Varane?
Varane could be the ideal long-term partner to Virgil Van Dijk, and the France international has performed very well so far in La Liga in the 2020/21 term, helping Zinedine Zidane’s team on the way to no fewer than 11 clean sheets while also averaging 3.7 clearances and 1.3 interceptions a game (Sofascore).
It would be a statement signing by Jurgen Klopp’s men, but whether they would be able to get the deal over the line is another question.
Liverpool fan reaction to Varane update

“WOW! VVD and Varane would be a cheat code. Still prefer Matip over anyone but he just can’t stay fit”
“The things I would do to see Van Dijk x Varane”
“I want this so bad”
“Now this is the transfer I want to happen”
“Nah I’m on my knees”
“This would be be perfect”
