"Great news": Liverpool fans excited by potential Jamal Lewis signing

Liverpool have proven in recent years that there is plenty of value to be found in signing players from recently relegated sides. The Reds have bagged some of their most important players from sides making the drop into the Championship, Andy Robertson is perhaps the best value example. The Reds could be set to repeat the trick with Liverpool reportedly chasing Jamal Lewis – Kopites have given their verdict on Twitter.

Liverpool want Jamal Lewis

The Independent have claimed that Liverpool are preparing to offer up to £10m for Jamal Lewis whilst The Telegraph have said that Norwich City will demand a fee closer to £20m.

The left back had an impressive season in a struggling Norwich side with the Canaries relegated by some distance come the end of the campaign.

Robertson backup

Liverpool bringing in Jamal Lewis would provide Andy Robertson with much needed cover.

There is currently no natural left back backup at the club with James Milner and Neco Williams being deployed there as makeshift options.

At 22-years-old Lewis is the ideal age to come in as an understudy for the Scotland captain, he is young enough to improve and be content with a backup role whilst being old enough to have considerable first team experience.

One Kopite described the signing as having no negatives, dismissing the shortsighted dissent some fans have expressed.

Whilst another supporter said it would be a tough decision for Lewis as he may find himself struggling for game time.

Plenty of fans have suggested that wantaway youngster Yasser Larouci could sweeten the deal.

This Red expressed his relief given that we haven’t had a backup since the departure of Alberto Moreno.

When it comes to transfer policy, if it ain’t broke then don’t fix it.

Why spend hundreds of millions players who are just going to disrupt squad harmony?
