Two reported targets Liverpool should swoop for
One department that Jurgen Klopp will have identified as an area of possible improvement is that of centre-back. With the ongoing club vs country row regarding Cameroon’s Joel Matip, it’s a concern that has become even more pressing in recent weeks.
But that could very well be alleviated by the capture of Jose Fonte from Southampton. With Fonte handing in a transfer request earlier in the month and not featuring in the Saints’ EFL Cup Semi-Final win over Liverpool, it seems as if the 33-year-old’s days at St Mary’s are numbered.
Fonte was linked with a move to Merseyside by Mirror Football last week, and considering his vast Premier League experience, Liverpool would be wise to swoop for the Euro 2016 winner.
