Liverpool have made Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell a target ahead of the summer transfer window, reports Calciomercato.

The Reds tried to sign Chilwell when Brendan Rodgers was manager while Jurgen Klopp also held an interest in the Englishman when he first took over in October 2015.

Alberto Moreno is set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season and so competition for Andy Robertson will be needed.

That said, I can’t understand why Chilwell would choose to join Liverpool when Manchester City are also interested and he would be more likely to find a starting spot at the Etihad.

I would prefer Liverpool to target Fulham’s exciting Ryan Sessegnon instead of Chilwell.

 

The former is hugely versatile and although he’s seen less playing time this season after the Cottagers were promoted to the Premier League, he has a brilliant future ahead of him.

Able to play anywhere down the left-hand side of the pitch, Sessegnon could be a superb utility player for Jurgen Klopp.

The 18-year-old would be able to perfect his defensive game by playing with the likes of Andy Robertson and refine his attacking attributes by watching the likes of Mane and Salah.

Regardless of who Klopp decides to target, it’s evident that Liverpool will be active in the transfer market again.

The boss might have said that he isn’t planning on spending much but he tends to say that before the start of every single transfer window.
