The Liverpool supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been pretty unhappy this week amid news that the club have withdrawn their interest in Holland central defender Virgil van Dijk, after the Reds were reported to the authorities regarding their negotiations with the Southampton man.
The Reds are still extremely hopeful that the club can enter the transfer market this summer for top quality players and they are also keen to see the club sign a commanding central defender.
Some naive defending cost Liverpool a real shot at the Premier League title last season and boss Jurgen Klopp will be very keen to ensure he is well stocked at the back next season to avoid any more mishaps.
One defender who Liverpool could turn their attentions to during the coming weeks is sought after Burnley man Michael Keane who has yet to announce where his future lies.
Keane has been tipped with a move to former club Manchester United but now Liverpool have missed the boat on the Southampton man there is no reason why they shouldn’t press ahead with a move for the Clarets man.
One Liverpool fan is sat chatting to a couple of his pals here in the Tavern and he thinks that the Reds can really get one over their fierce rivals by pressing ahead with a bid for the England defender.
Liverpool fans, would you welcome Keane to the club? Let us know in the comments below!!!
