Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hopeful of bringing in defensive cover after The Mirror explained they have been quoted just £4 million for Benfica veteran Maxi Pereira.
The Uruguayan international right back starred in the World Cup and Brendan Rodgers is looking to sign him as a replacement for Glen Johnson who is out contract next summer and looks to be on his way out of the Merseyside club.
The 30-year-old has bags of experience and has captained the Portuguese giants on many occasions and could become a true leader in the Reds’ defence.
Although some see £4 million as a small price to pay for a solid right back, it can be also be considered as a big fee for an ageing player who only has six months remaining on his contract.
In contrast, Liverpool have also been considering Barcelona’s Martin Montoya who at 20-years-old represents more of a long-term option with the player’s agent revealing that his client would be ”100 per cent’ leaving the Camp Nou recently.
Liverpool fans. If it was down to you would you just pay the £4m and move on, knowing you have a solid right back to replace Glen Johnson? Let us know your thoughts below.
