Diego Llorente

Merseyside outfit have been long been interested in the signature of Ajax star defender Matthijs de Ligt but a deal seems to be proving difficult ahead of the summer transfer window.

Other reports have claimed that Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona and Man United are now favourites to land the 19-year-old which makes Liverpool seemingly out of the race.

However, Spanish publication AS have reported that the Merseyside outfit has submitted a bid for the signature of Spanish La Liga outfit Real Sociedad central defender Diego Llorente for the summer transfer window.

It has been suggested that the Reds team are keen to end the dominance of English Premier League winners Man City; hence they will want to add more quality to their team with the signature of Diego Llorente.

Mundo Derpotivo reports that the Reds team are not the only club seeking to land the 25-year-old after claiming that Everton, West Ham and Fulham have already indicated interest.

However, It is claimed that the Reds team will have to pay the sum of £25 million to be able to land the star defender and that should not be an issue for manager Jurgen Klopp, knowing the quality of the star player.
