Liverpool Favorites To Sign Top Everton And Manchester United Transfer Target In Coming Days
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have lost just two games in 20 so far this season in the Premier League and the manager will be happy with his team’s performance this season.
However, he will know that there are a few weaknesses in the squad that need to be addressed and will hope to add players who can better the squad and can get the job done.
They have been on the lookout for a centre-back who can walk into the first team, with the likes of Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan, not impressing enough. Reports suggest they might turn to their ‘old friends’ at the St Marys for additions.
According to a report from the Manchester Evening News, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are now favorites to sign EURO16 winner Jose Fonte this January.
The Southampton centre-back has been a servant for the club for sometime now and is one of the first names on the team sheet for Claude Puel this season. He has been superb this season, helping the Saints to a decent start to the season but recently, he has decided to make a move away from the club.
Reports revealed that Jose Fonte handed in an official transfer request, asking the club to sell him in January.
A number of clubs were reportedly ready to pounce on him as the likes of Manchester United and Everton were linked with a move in the last few months.
But the window now open, Manchester United have reportedly decided not to pursue Fonte and are looking elsewhere for defensive additions.
Everton’s Ronald Koeman, may look to lure him to the Merseyside but their rivals Liverpool are not plotting a move for him and are favorites to land him.
With just 18 months left on his contract at the St Marys, Fonte, is expected to be available at a cheap price and Liverpool will hope that they can get a deal done for him soon.
At 33, the Portuguese defender is one of the most experienced players and he will make this Liverpool side a lot stronger.
However, at his age;, he is not expected to play for too long and is not an option for the future.
But if he wants to make a move and Liverpool are ready to spend, he is more than a decent option that can even help Liverpool to the title.
At the moment, the Reds are odds on favorites to land him but do you think Jose Fonte will move to Anfield this month?
