Liverpool fans love £31.5m links to Pavard

Liverpool fans are absolutely loving this week’s big transfer link, as reports claim the Reds will move for World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard next summer.

According to reports, Liverpool are lining up a €35m (£31.5m) move for Pavard, who wowed spectators with his incredible volleyed goal in Russia.

The young Frenchman played at right back for most of the tournament, but is naturally a centre back, somewhere the Reds may still be looking to improve.

Virgil van Dijk has been an absolute colossus since arriving for a world record fee in January, but the position next to him is still up for grabs.

Joe Gomez has been impressive at the start of this season, seizing the opportunity handed to him by Dejan Lovren’s injury.

Lovren himself has improved drastically over the past 18 months, but fans still feel he has a mistake or two in him.

Pavard is incredibly good with the ball, played every minute of Stuttgart’s Bundesliga campaign last season, and will be available for that €35m price tag if they do not qualify for the Champions League.

Fans would love to bring the versatile young defender to Merseyside, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
