Liverpool are looking to sign a left-back to serve as a deputy to Andy Robertson this summer.
The Premier League champions have been particularly shy of options on the left flank this season, with the Scotsman currently the only recognised senior player in that position. As a result, the Reds are on the hunt for a back-up and like the look of Bournemouth’s Lloyd Kelly, according to Neil Jones (via @AnfieldEdition).
Should Liverpool look to sign Lloyd Kelly?
With the Cherries falling victim to relegation, the club may want to cash in for an inflated price to the Premier League champions.
The 21-year-old has played at both left-back and centre-back this season, which showcases his versatility across the back four. He could be exactly the type of young player Liverpool are seeking to bolster their title-winning squad.
A lot of Reds fans are in agreement with bringing him in, with one supporter describing him as “unbelievable business”. Another Kopite feels that they will get a bargain “if we can turn him into another Robertson or Gomez”. Kelly is currently valued at just £7.2m, which is almost the same price that Liverpool paid for Robertson back in 2017 (via BBC Sport).

Kelly has played CB for Bournemouth on their mini run and looked good. Maybe worth a punt for deputy LB and CB

Saw Kelly play for England U21s back end of last year as left sided centre back, was very composed, great distribution and good in the air.
