A number of Liverpool fans have been reacting negatively to rumours linking the Reds with a move for Ezequiel Garay.
The Premier League champions have suffered rotten luck in the centre-back department this season, with injuries depleting Jurgen Klopp’s men in that department. Liverpool currently have Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all out until the end of the campaign, with the first two not playing since the autumn.
The Reds could eye up a new centre-back signing this summer, but one slightly surprising rumour has appeared, with Garay linked with a move to Anfield and El Gol Digital going as far as to say that a deal is close to happening.
The 34-year-old has won 32 caps for Argentina, playing against Germany in the 2014 World Cup final and impressing in the tournament. Standing at 1.88m in height, the defensive powerhouse frequently averaged two to three successful aerial duels per game, an indicator of his prowess in that department.
Considering Garay’s age and his own injury-plagued past, however, it is a transfer story which doesn’t seem to make a huge amount of sense, with some Liverpool supporters certainly of that opinion.

Here are a selection of the best reactions on Twitter.
“Nope, 34 y/o and suffered an ACL injury, hopefully it’s just his agent trying to attract interest because this move makes no sense”
“We’re just doing this to make Nat Phillips look faster“
“No point signing him, better off with who we’ve got now“
“Would rather pay 18 million for Kabak“
