Liverpool are reportedly closing in on the signing of centre-back Ezequiel Garay this summer in a surprise transfer story.
The Reds have had a disastrous season in the injury department, losing a host of key players throughout the campaign. Jurgen Klopp has been particularly hampered at centre-back, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all expected to be out until the summer.
It could be that the Liverpool manager eyes up reinforcements in that area during the summer transfer window, but a shock rumour is now doing the rounds.
Liverpool eye up move for Garay
The 34-year-old is currently a free agent, having left Valencia last year following a four-year stint with the La Liga side. He has made 466 club career appearances, 43 of which have come in the Champions League (Transfermarkt).
Transfer Tavern take
Despite his considerable pedigree, Garay would be a strange addition, considering he turns 35 later this year and is approaching the end of his career.
In other news, Liverpool have been linked with a summer move for a 19-goal striker this summer. Read all about it here.
