Liverpool eye move for experienced PL defender

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a busy few weeks..

Jurgen Klopp has got his side playing fantastically this season, and for the Reds in the pub – a title challenge is almost certainly on the way.

The Merseyside-based club have been seriously impressive in the Premier League this season, but our landlord thinks that their lack of good, experienced squad depth could cost them long-term.

It would appear as though Jurgen Klopp is in agreement, too, with the Express reporting that the Reds have an eye on Southampton defender Jose Fonte.

The Express are reporting that Liverpool want Fonte to add a bit of steel to their disappointing defence, with out-of-favour defender Mamadou Sakho potentially going the other way as part of the deal.

The interest is significant, given that Fonte recently handed in a transfer request at St Mary’s – with the Southampton fans in the Transfer Tavern expecting a transfer away from Southampton this month.

Despite his recent decision to leave the club, Fonte has not let his performances slip this season. He has been a consistent member of Southampton’s first team all season, offering an experienced and dedicated hand at the heart of an otherwise disappointing first team.

See what he can do below…
