Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are raising their pints glasses as they pray for better fortune in 2016, after a difficult few years for the fans.
They’re confident that Jurgen Klopp can lead them to success, and a return to Champions League football, and are excited by one particular transfer report which suggests a huge signing could be made in the new year.
Fichajes states that Liverpool are preparing a £22.1m bid for Inter Milan defender Jeison Murillo, who has been a key part of one of the strongest defences in European football this season.
Inter will be reluctant to sell as they aim to fight off plenty of competition to land the Serie A crown come May and the defence is a core part of Roberto Mancini’s side, who have conceded just 11 goals so far this campaign.
In comparison, Liverpool have conceded 22 goals and currently sit in mid-table in the Premier League. Klopp’s side are eight points adrift of the top four, with a game in hand as they play Sunderland this evening, where it is vital the Merseyside outfit pick up maximum points.
Liverpool fans, can Murillo help you reach Champions League football? Let us know in the comments below
