Liverpool are in a relatively unique position in this transfer window. The Reds aren’t often heading into a January market in desperate need of reinforcements. We don’t like to be reactionary or on the back foot yet here we are. A number of names have been suggested as potential signings and one has been refuted. Twitter has reacted after James Pearce insisted Liverpool aren’t interested in Sven Botman.
Liverpool not interested in Sven Botman
There have been a number of reports, now conflicting reports, surrounding Liverpool and Botman.
It is pretty straightforward.
The Reds need a centre back so we’re being linked with all of them.
Duncan Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast that Liverpool are working on a deal for Sven Botman, a price tag of around £15m was cited.

James Pearce has refuted these claims, saying that the Reds aren’t interested in the defender.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool not signing Sven Botman isn’t a disaster if it doesn’t happen.
The Reds will sign someone eventually but on their own time.
Michael Edwards won’t be forced into a reactionary move.
Our transfer success stories of late have been reliant on us not being rushed into moves which didn’t suit us.
We take our time and get it right, we’re confident the club will do so again.
Twitter reacts to update.
Some fans aren’t convinced that Pearce’s tweet is genuine.
Many supporters believe that he is just saying what the club wants him to say so that they can conduct their business away from the watchful eyes of the media.
Some fans are gutted at the news.
Who needs Botman?
