Wober is capable of playing at left back or on either side of a centre back partnership.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Maximilian Wober makes sense on paper.
He is just 22-years-old meaning he has a decade until he starts winding down.
The youngster has played at Ajax and Red Bull Salzburg which indicates that he’d be comfortable with the Reds’ style of play.
He would also add much needed balance with his left foot.
Though, how much we can read into this rumour we just can’t say.
The Reds have been linked with all and sundry, Wober is just the latest in a long line of allegedly Anfield bound defenders.
His CV does make him an enticing prospect but how much he would cost is entirely unknown at this point.
Twitter reacts to rumour
Some fans believe Michael Edwards may finally have his act together.
Some supporters are a fan of the defender.
We’d need him in ASAP.
At least before our rivals swoop in.
