Liverpool have made a bid for Lorient defender Raphael Guerreiro – according to Alex Hayes, the French club’s vice-president.
Jurgen Klopp will face stiff competition for the Portuguese international if he is genuinely interested in making him an addition this Summer.
His former club Borussia Dortmund have also been mentioned as holding an interest in the twenty-two year old.
“No one wants to see Raphael leave, especially the president,” Hayes told French newspaper Ouest.
“He will only be transferred if a club makes an offer that we can’t refuse.
“For the moment four major foreign clubs, including Dortmund and Liverpool, have made an offer.
“The fourth one shouldn’t take too long to be made but for the moment none of them satisfy us. We’re calm. We don’t need to sell to balance the books.” he finished.
Barcelona have also been touted as a potential destination for the in-demand defender.
