Liverpool now competing with Manchester United for ‘exciting’ defender



Liverpool now competing with Manchester United for ‘exciting’ defender

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are now reportedly competing with Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United for Crystal Palace winger Marc Guehi.

The Daily Mail have reported that Liverpool have joined Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the race for Crystal Palace winger Marc Guehi.

The report has claimed that the Eagles could ask as much as £50 million in transfer fees for the 22-year-old England international central defender.

However, according to the report, Liverpool may not have the budget to pay that much money for the defender “as they prioritise midfield reinforcements this summer”.

Both Liverpool and United are big clubs, but the Red Devils do look very strong at the back.

Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane are two of the best centre-backs in the Premier League.

Guehi is more likely to get into the Liverpool first team.

The Reds could do with a quality centre-back like Guehi, who is only 22 and could establish himself in the starting lineup for years to come.

Described as “an exciting talent” by Eagles chairman Steve Parish on the club’s official website in July 2021, Guehi has the potential to be a star at Liverpool and become a regular alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Report: Liverpool eye shock move for ‘sensational’ West Ham 27-year-old

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp likes the idea of bringing West Ham centre-back Nayef Aguerd to Anfield this summer.

According to Goal, West Ham defender Nayef Aguerd is on the radar of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of the summer transfer window.

Aguerd missed the first half of the season through injury, but made an immediate impact when he returned to action just before the World Cup break. However, Moyes has criticised the Morocco international recently for some ‘sloppy’ performances.

Nevertheless, Aguerd looks like he will be a great signing for the Hammers in the long run. Will he be at West Ham beyond the end of this season though?

Liverpool eye shock move for West Ham ace Nayef Aguerd

Goal reckon that the Moroccan is one of three centre-backs who is admired by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

I must admit, I really think that the Hammers should be looking to keep hold of Aguerd. I think he’s a top player, and despite some shaky performances recently, I’m positive that he will come good.

talkSPORT recently described the centre-back as ‘sensational’.

He’s strong in the air, incredibly quick along the ground and is a real leader at the back for the Hammers.

The former Rennes star should be the West Ham captain when Declan Rice eventually leaves the club, there is no doubt in my mind about that.

If Liverpool come knocking for Nayef Aguerd in the summer though, it might well prove to be difficult for Moyes to keep him at the London Stadium.

I don’t think West Ham will have any intention of selling the former Rennes ace. We all know that money talks in the Premier League though.

This will be one to keep a close eye on during the summer transfer window.
