Some Liverpool fans have been bemoaning the Reds being linked with Inter Milan defender Stefan de Vrij, with many growing bored of the rumour.
A new centre-back is likely to be at the top of Jurgen Klopp’s agenda this summer, as he looks to address a problem area this season.
Liverpool have had to make do without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for many months, playing a huge part in the Reds’ struggles in 2020/21.
Ozan Kabak was signed on loan in February and has performed well, but it has still been a far-from-ideal scenario, with Nathaniel Phillips perhaps not at the level required, despite some admirable displays.
The 29-year-old has made 31 appearances in Serie A this season, playing his part in Inter being crowned champions under Antonio Conte.
Fans don’t want Liverpool to sign De Vrij
Despite this, the rumour hasn’t gone down well with a number of Reds supporters, who took to Twitter to provide their thoughts.
“This story comes every month for 5 years now and is incredibly annoying to read“
“Wow. is it 2017?“
“Hearing that since 2017“
“Skriniar better anyway“
“Why would we unless we’re planning to sell Matip?“
“Not true. Konate is the only CB Liverpool will be signing this summer, the focus has now turned to midfield and finding a Wijnaldum replacement“
In other news, Liverpool have reportedly been given the chance to sign a World Cup-winning player this summer. Read more here.
