Liverpool fans take to Twitter to call for Ferro amid centre-back problems

Liverpool fans take to Twitter to call for Ferro amid centre-back problems - Liverpool

Liverpool may have Virgil van Dijk, but their cover at centre-back isn’t amazing. A new defender wouldn’t go amiss and reports back in March claimed they were after Benfica centre-back Ferro. Much more recently, Diario Record have claimed, via Empire of the Kop, that Rafa Camacho could be used as a makeweight in a deal for the young defender.

Liverpool fans have got it good with Virgil van Dijk, who recently claimed the PFA Player of the Year award making him the official best in the business this season, as voted by his fellow professionals. However, past Van Dijk, it gets a lot tougher to find much quality at the heart of the Reds’ defence. Joe Gomez is too injury prone whilst Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren just aren’t title-winning quality.

That’s exactly where Ferro would come in. The Portuguese defender, full name Francisco Reis Ferreira, is showing his quality at the back in Liga Nos this season and cannot be underestimated. One young defender has already secured a big move out of the Portuguese league this season as Eder Militao agreed to swap Porto for Real Madrid, and if Liverpool swoop for Ferro it could be an equally promising move for all parties.

The Reds are desperate to bring in a new central-defender of some sort, even if it isn’t Ferro, and will hope Jurgen Klopp acts fast in the summer.
