Liverpool want to sign Sergio Ramos this summer as the Spaniard has fallen out with Real Madrid, opening the door for a move to Anfield, AS reports.

In Virgil van Dijk, the Reds have the best central defender in the world and despite the fact that Liverpool had the best defence in the Premier League last season, supporters want more.

With it looking likely that Matthijs de Ligt will not be moving to Merseyside, Jurgen Klopp will either have to look elsewhere or make do with what he already has on hand.

The German has been marvellous in his recruitment while Liverpool boss as the likes of Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson were signed for very low prices.

While van Dijk cost the club £75million, he is still one of the best signings in Liverpool’s history.

 

Signing Sergio Ramos would mean that Klopp would have the best central defensive partnership in the world, with the potential to be one of the best ever in the history of the game.

There are a couple of problems, of course, with the Spaniard 33 years of age and locked in at Real Madrid under a contract that is virtually impossible to break.

Los Blancos added an €800million (£706m) release clause into his contract the last time Ramos signed an extension.

That effectively rules that move out of happening but all the same, it’s always fun to dream.
