Liverpool have been characteristically efficient with their transfer business so far this summer. The Reds have offloaded Dejan Lovren and brought in Kostas Tsimikas without much fuss. There is still some business to be done with the Reds now lacking a fourth choice centre half, some Twitter users have been debating the merits of Liverpool signing Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic.

Liverpool liked Ajer

It is no secret that Liverpool is the ideal club for Kristoffer Ajer.

The Norwegian has previously been open about his love for the club, stating that it is his dream to walk out to You’ll Never Walk Alone at Anfield.

The Norwegian centre back has had to settle for a close alternative having signed for Celtic back in 2016.

Twitter rumours

Twitter account Celtic Underground has claimed that Liverpool are looking at Kristoffer Ajer as a potential replacement for Dejan Lovren.

We can’t put any stock into random Twitter accounts making transfer claims but we can assess how much sense the move would make.

At 22-years-old the defender certainly fits the age profile, he would also come with mountains of first team experience having made 129 appearances for Celtic in total.

He is confident on the ball and versatile given that he can play at either centre back or in centre midfield – a trait that would catch the eye of Jürgen Klopp.

Fans react to prospect

Many fans believe that Kristoffer Ajer would benefit greatly from playing with Virgil van Dijk given that they have similar styles of play.

Some believe he has Van Dijk levels of potential.

 

If anyone can help him realise that potential it’s Jürgen Klopp.

Some don’t believe there’s any chance of the move happening.

Whilst other Celtic fans would leap at the opportunity, if we throw in a sweetener.

We just need to make sure our middle man doesn’t get there first.
