Liverpool have made a £22 million offer for Real Sociedad ace Diego Llorente, that’s according to a report from Spanish publication AS.
The two-capped Spain international is a graduate from the Real Madrid academy, is a sound defender, and he would be a useful addition for the Reds.
The Reds had one of the best defences in Europe this season, with Virgil van Dijk marshalling things at the heart of the defence, but it could be disputed that Jurgen Klopp needs to include another top-class centre-back.
Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip have not been consistent this season, although the Cameroonian did finish strongly.
Joe Gomez, on the other hand, has had various problems with injury, so the adding of someone like Llorente might be just what they need.
Spanish media outlet AS in point of fact claims that the Reds have submitted a £22 million offer for the centre-back.
The 25-year-old is a technically gifted defender and is very comfortable when in possession of the football and he is decent in the air and possesses an impressive pace.
He would indisputably be a useful addition for the Merseyside outfit.
Should Liverpool manage to get him for just £22 million, it would have to be classed as good business for the Reds.
