Liverpool should forget Van Dijk and sign this classy European centre-back

Liverpool will be hoping to once again impress in the Premier League and seal a top four place, while their fans will no doubt be expecting the club to make a decent fist of things in the Champions League.

The Reds are being linked with a host of new players, despite already adding exciting new players to the squad in Mo Salah and Dominc Solanke.

Our Liverpool fans here in the Tavern remain confident of another successful season next year under Jurgen Klopp, and our landlord has been getting into the nitty gritty of transfer business with them in the beer garden this week.

One player our landlord thinks the club could be looking to sign is current Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte, who has become one of the most sought after centre halves on in Europe over the last few years.

Laporte has a real class about him which suggests he is set right for the top, and he is exactly the sort of player Liverpool should be looking to move for if they are to improve their squad for next year. They Reds have been linked all summer with a move for Southampton defender Virgil Van Dijk., but Laporte represents a different option for them.

Brilliant with the ball at his feet and also strong and dominant in tackles and in the air, Laporte would appear ideally suitedfor the Premier League. Central defence is a position which has long needed adding to at Anfield, and Laporte could be the man to solve that issue.

Liverpool fans, what do you think? Agree? Let us know!
