Liverpool should target 23-year-old French defender this summer

The Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping that boss Jurgen Klopp has something up his sleeve ahead of the remainder of the summer transfer window.

So far this summer the Reds have added striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea, whilst their major stellar recruit has come in the form of Roma forward Mo Salah.

Liverpool were excellent at times during the last campaign and some good form at both ends of the season saw the club return to the Champions League with a top four finish.

The club’s ardent supporters are hopeful that a bit more business will be done between now and the closure of the transfer window, with the defence still in need of some attention in their opinion.

One defender who Liverpool should be trying to target this summer is Athletic Bilbao starlet Aymeric Laporte, who has been the subject of high-profile interest for several years now.

The 23-year-old looks destined to play for one of Europe’s top clubs at some point during his career and if Liverpool are serious about making a challenge for the title, then Laporte is exactly the calibre of player they need to be showing interest in.

A couple of Reds supporters are sat chatting with the landlord here in the Tavern and they are of the belief that signing the French youngster this summer would instantly throw the club into contention for a title challenge.

Liverpool fans, would you welcome Laporte to the club this summer? Who else should the club look to sign? Let us know in the comments below!!!
