Liverpool-linked central defender Ruben Semedo has recently discussed his future at current club Olympiakos.
Portuguese outlet Sic Noticias (via the Sun) have previously reported that Liverpool are looking to sign the defender and they could even offer him a five-year deal. Journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos had also reported that the Reds are looking to sign the 26-year-old Portuguese defender.
Is Ruben Semedo good enough for Liverpool?
Semedo addresses links to Liverpool
Semedo has now responded to speculation surrounding his future and in an interview with Portuguese outlet O Jogo, he was asked about Liverpool’s potential interest in him. The 26-year-old said:
“Oh, only difficult questions. I heard that and it’s always good to see my name linked to big clubs. Let’s see what happens in the future.”
Semedo is currently valued at £6.30 million by Transfermarkt and the defender has been a regular for the Greek club this season. He has made 17 appearances in all competitions so far, also playing in all six of the club’s Champions League group stage games.
Semedo could shore up Liverpool’s defence
Because of the injuries sustained by Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Liverpool currently have only one out-and-out centre-back fit in Joel Matip, who was taken off in the recent game against Fulham because of a back issue. Jurgen Klopp has been hopeful that Matip will be fit for the upcoming game against Tottenham.
This clearly shows that a lack of senior options for the centre-back role is a problem for the Reds and signing Semedo in January will help them address that issue.
