Liverpool linked with Sven Botman

The Reds hunt for a centre back is rarely away from the gossip pages.

This week Foot Mercato have linked Liverpool with a move for Sven Botman of Lille.

The 20-year-old Dutchman joined the Ligue 1 side over the summer, arriving from Ajax.

He has been thoroughly impressive at Lille but the club are in financial trouble and are looking to raise funds.

The report claims that the French side will tell Liverpool Sven Botman will cost them £27m.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Sven Botman fits the bill perfectly.

He is just 20-years-old and a product of the Ajax academy.

His education is evident in his style of play; he’s comfortable on the ball and can pick a pass.

He’s also incredibly young for a centre back and would obviously relish the chance of playing alongside countryman Virgil van Dijk.

This would be a trademark Liverpool signing.

He isn’t a glamour buy like Dayot Upamecano or Milan Skriniar, instead he is a measured, bargain purchase from out of left field.

We’ll be following this story closely.

He’d improve under Jürgen Klopp.

Fans rate him.

He could be the next Van Dijk.

He’s the right frame.

If January doesn’t work we should return in the summer.

Fans are excited.
