Liverpool should sign Boateng to repeat old trick - RTK View

Liverpool should make a move to sign Jerome Boateng on a free transfer this summer.

The German has left Bayern Munich this year after 10 seasons at the club.

He has decided against signing a new deal at the Allianz Arena and is now a free agent.

Surprisingly, Boateng is yet to find a new club.

According to Sport 1, he has left his agent and is now receiving advice from a friend.

He is reportedly in talks with Spanish side Sevilla, although nothing is agreed yet.

He has been linked to numerous other sides too, like Roma and Hertha Berlin.

However, we believe that Liverpool should attempt to repeat a deal that they have done twice in the past and make move to sign him.

Boateng could be the perfect fifth-choice centre-back for the Reds.

He won everything there is to win at the Allianz Arena, including two Champions Leagues nine Bundesligas and five German Cups.

He also won the World Cup with Germany in 2014.

The 32-year-old could offer invaluable leadership, experience and winning mentality to the side.

Liverpool currently have eight senior centre-backs at the club.

However, both Nat Phillips and Ben Davies have been linked with moves away, while Rhys Williams is set to be loaned out.

As we saw last season, it is good to have more than four senior central defenders at the club. This is especially the case when Joel Matip is so injury-prone.

So, if all three of the Englishmen mentioned above do leave, we would advise the club to bring someone new in.

Who better to bring in than someone who has won it all and is available for absolutely nothing?

Signing a cheap, experienced centre-half is exactly what Liverpool did with Kolo Toure in 2013 and Ragnar Klavan in 2016. We know that the club are open to this kind of deal.

Ideally, Boateng would not have to play much at all, but if he did, he would be perfectly capable.

We saw how Chelsea benefitted from signing Thiago Silva in a similar deal last summer.

It would be a zero-risk deal for Liverpool, and we would heavily advise it.
