Liverpool fans react to Lascelles rumours

According to The Independent, Liverpool want to sign Newcastle United’s Jamaal Lascelles or Burnley’s James Tarkowski in this summer’s transfer window.

Indeed, it is being reported that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to sign at least one new centre-back this summer, and Lascelles and Tarkowski are believed to be under consideration by the Champions League finalists.

Lascelles, 24, was excellent for Newcastle during the 2017-18 campaign, and Chelsea are also said to be admirers of the towering centre-back.

It seems that Newcastle will find it difficult to keep the Englishman on a long-term basis, and the Magpies could well be tested by Liverpool during this summer’s window.

The Liverpool fans have been reacting to suggestions of interest in Lascelles, and there are a number that would welcome the central defender ahead of the new season.

That said, there are also those who have doubted whether Lascelles, who is valued at £6.3m by transfermarkt.co.uk, is good enough to represent a top-four team.
