Liverpool are being linked with a move for Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is reported to be interested in bringing the twenty-six year old to Anfield this Summer to fix the issue he has with the left-back position.
Calciomercato are reporting that the Algerian international has been identified by Klopp as the man to replace stop-gap James Milner in the problem position.
Midfielder Milner was used as first-choice following Klopp’s decision to drop defensive liability Alberto Moreno, but plans to keep the former England international in the role may have bitten the dust.
Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon was eyed as a potential understudy for the ex-Manchester City man, but he has turned down the opportunity to relocate from London and looks likely to join Spurs this Summer.
That could see Klopp reassess and decide that a senior player is the answer and Ghoulam is the latest left-back to be linked with a move to Anfield.
Arsenal snapped up Bosnia international Saed Kolasinac on a free transfer today following the expiration of his contract with German club Schalke and many Reds are questioning why Klopp didn’t make him an offer.
Monaco’s young France international Benjamin Mendy has been linked with a move to Anfield, as well as Manchester City, but is likely to prove too expensive given Klopp’s other targets and priorities.
Chelsea are also rumoured to be monitoring Ghoulam.
