According to our EPL reporter saying the EPL current champion Liverpool are weighing up a move for Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti in their search for another new centre-back.
It was noted that the Reds brought in Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak as emergency cover in the January window after losing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to long-term injuries which the team belies that they will soon be back to the squad.
It was also noted that the Red Boss Jurgen Klopp has also had to make do without Joel Matip since the opening month of the year, all of which has contributed to a terrible Premier League title defence these season.
It was also noted that irrespective of the arrivals of two new centre-backs earlier this season the management technical group still believes that there is room for improvement in the defence area.
Judging from the look of things it was observed that Umtiti who has fallen down the pecking order at Camp Nou under Ronald Koeman, could be on the Merseyside outfit’s radar ahead of the summer window which is about to come.
Although Umtiti has been restricted to just 14 appearances in all competitions this season and has two years to run on his contract which is not making the world class player feel that he has been left out the scheme of things.
