Liverpool fans urge club to move for Maguire following England display

Virgil van Dijk boosted Liverpool’s defence significantly when he joined the club from Southampton in January.

There are still questions over his potential centre-back partners, with Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan all possessing weaknesses.

One man, though, who Liverpool fans believe could thrive alongside Van Dijk is Leicester City defender Harry Maguire.

The 25-year-old’s performances for the Foxes last season earned him a place in the England squad for the World Cup in Russia.

On Monday night, manager Gareth Southgate started Maguire as part of a back three in the Three Lions’ opening Group G game against Tunisia.

The defender looked comfortable in his role as he played out from the back and even created the assist that led to Harry Kane’s 91st-minute winner.

There has not been any indication that Liverpool are on the hunt for a new defender this summer, but the fans think that Maguire would fit right in.
