Liverpool reportedly show interest in Wolves full-back Rayan Ait-Nouri

According to the Daily Mail, Wolves would only receive 50 percent of the revenue from this sale due to a massive sell-on clause cleverly engineered by Angers.

They report that Liverpool, Manchester City and more are tracking the 20-year-old.

The French full-back has been fantastic for Wolves in his last three games, even if it’s only seen the Wanderers pick up three points.

That’s a fair return given the last two games in that run came against Liverpool and Manchester City and the defeats came due to a 94th-minute winner and a penalty.

He was particularly good at keeping Raheem Sterling quiet. The Englishman was only able to score after City were awarded a dubious penalty when the ball struck Ruben Neves’s armpit.

Ait-Nouri, however, gained praise for his defence and attack in all three games. What impressed me the most was his ability to play the ball out of danger under intense pressure from two of the best counter pressing sides not just in the league but in the world.

I’m not convinced Liverpool need another left back, especially with Kostas Tsimikas providing such excellent cover for Andy Robertson. But if, for some reason, Jurgen Klopp was going to add another to his squad, Ait-Nouri would be a brilliant option.

That said, this Liverpool squad is in far more need of cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold. Neco Williams is a joy to watch but he is a liability in defence, which is the quickest way for a Premier League side to be undone at the back. If, God forbid, the Reds see Trent suffer a serious injury, they will lose the bulk of their creativity in a flash.

It is a major flaw in the depth of Klopp’s squad.
