Liverpool Turn Attention To New £30m Transfer Option To Replace Van Dijk

Liverpool may have gone top of the Premier League on Wednesday night but they have concerns in defence.

Fabinho has been filling in for the injured Van Dijk, while Rhys Williams enjoyed a fine display against Tottenham.

But the Premier League championsare looking at a long-term solution and believe they have found one in Roma star Roger Ibanez.

The Brazilian's transfer situation is somewhat confusing, after joining the Italian club on loan from Atalanta in January 2020.

However, that deal is effectively a ‘permanent' one, which will become official in the summer of 2021.

Regardless, AS Roma claim the Reds are prepared to fork out £30m for the 22-year-old's services.

The report also states how Spurs and Leicester tried to sign him in the summer only to be rebuffed and his displays have only improved throughout the season.
