Liverpool fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are shocked at the news they are reading from the Daily Star (via Itasportpress) – with the publication claiming that Liverpool have opened negotiations with Borussia Dortmund regarding a move for centre-back Mats Hummels.
This has certainly caused a stir here in the Transfer Tavern, with Reds fans spilling their pints in sheer delight – and our landlord has had to calm everyone down!
The publication suggests that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is eager to reunite with the German International at Anfield, and talks have began to help move forward a potential deal.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern cannot believe this news that has come into the pub today, and feels this would be one hell of a coup for Klopp and his men – but remains sceptical as to whether this deal will actually materialise!
A large contingent of Liverpool fans over by the pool table here in the Tavern are deliberating this news, with all of them agreeing this would be a serious signal of intent if Hummels joined Liverpool, and it would undoubtedly make them genuine title contenders.
A solitary Dortmund fan in the corner of the Tavern can’t imagine seeing Hummels in a Liverpool shirt anytime soon, and has told all the Liverpool fans to chill out!
Liverpool fans….. What do you make of this news? Will it happen? Just how good is Hummels? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
