Liverpool are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

The Belgium international will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

According to the report, “Liverpool are being linked with PSG fullback Thomas Meunier. French media sources, report the London Evening Standard, say Liverpool have opened talks with Meunier over a move to Anfield. The Belgian is due to be a free agent at the end of the season and would therefore be a cheap option to provide cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold. At present, the Englishman is Jurgen Klopp’s only recognised senior right-back, with the likes of Joe Gomez and James Milner having occasionally deputised, while youngster Neco Williams has also featured. For his part, Meunier would favour a move to England if given the choice.”
