Liverpool keen on 23-year-old defender, Scouts have been sent to watch

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping to see a few new players come in between now and next season…

After all, the Reds are in the midst of a really rough run of form – and Jurgen Klopp has a lot of work to do in order to turn his team around.

Issues are glaring up and down the Liverpool first team, with the most notable issues in defence. The likes of Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren have not been up to par lately, whilst James Milner – a natural midfielder – has been resigned to the left-back spot for much of the season.

It will come as no surprise, then, to learn that Jurgen Klopp is keen on upgrading his defence – with the flanks seemingly a particular area of concern.

According to the Daily Star, Liverpool have been tracking defender Ricardo Pereira, who is reportedly rated at £22 million.

Porto are reportedly willing to sell, and with Klopp keen to turn his side’s fortunes around – a summer move could be on the cards.

This news has delighted the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern, many of whom have touted the defence as the weak spot in the Reds’ first team.

Currently on loan at Nice, Pereira has featured regularly this season – having made 22 appearances in all competitions. Able to play both on the right and left, he would offer a solution in place of either Milner or Clyne – making him a valued assett for Jurgen Klopp.
