Liverpool are heading into a busy summer. The Reds are in dire need for reinforcements across a number of areas. According to reports in Italy, Liverpool target Nikola Milenkovic could be available for as little as £15m.
Liverpool centre back situation
Last season Jürgen Klopp lost every one of his senior centre backs to injury.
The Reds had to soldier on with backups and the backups’ backups.
Part of the problem was that the club decided against replacing Dejan Lovren last summer.
Michael Edwards has started working at sorting the centre of defence out.
Ibrahima Konate has been signed from RB Leipzig whilst Ben Davies arrived in February.
There could yet still be further movement in the back line with the futures of Davies, Nat Phillips and Joel Matip up in the air.
Liverpool target Nikola Milenkovic price
The Reds are still being linked with centre backs.
A couple of months ago Milan Live repeated claim that Liverpool want Nikola Milenkovic.
The 23-year-old Serbian centre back is entering the final year of his deal at Fiorentina.
According to Calciomercato, La Viola are resigned to losing their promising youngster.
As a result the Serie A side will allegedly accept bids of around £15m.
What RTK has to say
If Michael Edwards manages to cash in on a centre back or two then this could be a viable option.
At just 23-years-old there’s plenty of time for Liverpool to mould and improve Milenkovic.
£15m would be a real bargain regardless, his price has previously been double that.
