Liverpool fans have been left thinking about the prospect of signing a new central defensive partner to Virgil van Dijk this week.
It comes after the former agent of Leicester City colossus Caglar Soyuncu made an interesting claim to Spanish outlet AS.
Mustafa Dogru claimed that “only Liverpool” could afford his signature in the Premier League this summer before namedropping financial heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona as other suitors.
This news was relayed on Twitter by popular fan account Anfield Edition and the Reds faithful have been reacting in their droves.
The 23-year-old has been a frequent figure under ex-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers at the Foxes this campaign, making 28 appearances in the top-flight where he has averaged an impressive 4.6 clearances, 1.8 tackles and an 89.3% passing success rate per game, via WhoScored.
Here’s how supporters have been reacting on social media…
Let's trade him for Lovren,
Can we @LFC and Michael Edwards

He would be a good signing but would be crazy expensive https://t.co/73Vj8XLgg0
