Liverpool have considered transfer swoop for rivals’ captain – Report

Liverpool fans here in the Tavern are buzzing with the recent results their side have managed to pull together, as European dominance now looks achievable for the Reds. 

Indeed, for all the criticism that’s surrounded Jurgen Klopp this season for his decision-making, he finally seems to be getting things right at Anfield. And, their emphatic 5-0 win over Porto in the Champions League is a perfect example of his recent success, as the German looks to secure that elusive trophy. Although, should he fail in his attempts to secure silverware for this season, the summer transfer window may hold the key to future triumphs, as according to reports in the Chronicle Live, Liverpool have taken a look at Newcastle United defender Jamaal Lascelles.

Indeed, it’s been evident that the Reds have struggled in defensive areas at times throughout the current campaign, with Liverpool’s interest in the Magpies’ captain coming as welcome news. And, drawing Lascelles away from St James’ Park may prove to be an easy task, with the player’s current wage causing for his agent to potentially weigh up offers from interested parties in the summer.

But, for a Liverpool side that’s been haunted by defensive mistakes in seasons gone by, adding an accomplished central defender like Lascelles could be the final piece to ensuring solidity. And, as the current club captain at Newcastle United, they’ll potentially be welcoming a leader to the Anfield that could prove crucial in their future.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Jamaal Lascelles is a quality defensive asset that could progress the Liverpool defence, with his leadership being a welcome sight for Reds fans. And, with his current situation at Newcastle United looking less than convincing, they may be able to conjure up a quick deal in the future.
