Liverpool are lining up a summer swoop on Aston Villa for French left-back Jordan Amavi, who looks set to leave the relegated side in the coming months.
According to L’Equipe, Villa have been contacted by Liverpool to declare that they are interested in signing the French Under-21 international.
The news has alerted the Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern with the supporters relishing the prospect of a half decent left-back to replace the hapless Alberto Moreno.
The 22-year-old was one of ex-Villa boss Tim Sherwood’s new recruits at Villa Park last season and injury restricted him to just 10 appearances in his maiden season at the club.
Our knowledgeable landlord has just been changing the barrel here in the Tavern and he thinks that Amavi has a massive future ahead of him, also claiming that he would be a massive improvement on Alberto Moreno.
Liverpool fans, would you welcome Amavi at the club? Would he be a better option in the side to Moreno?
