Liverpool have been struggling this season but if there’s one consolation to take from this term’s problems it is that it could lead to some exciting moves in the transfer market. A centre back could well be on the cards. Fans have been drooling over links between Liverpool and Raphael Varane.
Liverpool summer window
This summer has to be about upgrading the depth at the club.
There will surely also be a focus on sorting out the centre back issues.
We’ve seen all of our starting centre backs ruled out for the season and another new arrival could well be on the cards to add stability.
The Reds aren’t obliged to buy Ozan Kabak and they could decide to make a quick profit on Ben Davies.
Liverpool linked to Raphael Varane
Over in Madrid there is a similar level of uncertainty.
The Spanish side are currently figuring out just who will be in their defence next term.
Los Blancos have been linked with David Alaba with the Austrian’s contract set to expire at Bayern Munich.
However, they have to also deal with the contracts of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.
The Spaniard’s deal expires this summer whilst the Frenchman will be entering the final year of his contract.
According to AS, the club could look to cash in on their French centre back if he doesn’t sign an extension.
The outlet has claimed that Liverpool are interested in signing Raphael Varane; the Spanish side would want around £60m for the defender.
Twitter reacts to rumour
It’s safe to say fans are excited about the links.
Though some aren’t convinced we can pull it off.
