Liverpool had a busy transfer deadline day for once. The Reds were active at the last minute working hard to secure some cover at centre back following a litany of injuries. According to reports in Portugal, Liverpool had a last minute bid rejected for David Carmo.
Liverpool deadline day activity
The Reds lost Joel Matip for the season last week.
The club kept this news under wraps whilst they hunted for a replacement to help alleviate the club’s injury woes.
Ben Davies was signed from Preston North End for a reported fee of £2m.
Later on in the day long term target Ozan Kabak arrived on loan from Schalke.
The club have the option of signing the Turkish defender permanently for £18m at the end of the season.
Liverpool bid for David Carmo
The Reds allegedly had another defender on their radar.
According to reports in Portugal, Liverpool had a bid for David Carmo rejected.
Record has claimed that the Reds offered Braga a loan fee of £3.5m.
The bid also included a £17.5m option to buy which would’ve also afforded Braga 20% of any future sell on fee.
It is claimed that Braga didn’t have enough time to find a replacement and that is why they rejected the Reds’ offer.
What RTK has to say
We aren’t heartbroken about Liverpool missing out on David Carmo.
We got the bodies we needed through the door and that’s what matters.
The Reds are going to be much more secure now that we have two fresh faces at the back.
If the club are still interested in the defender then they’ll go back in for him in the summer.
