The upcoming summer will see Liverpool improving their defensive department.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Liverpool are eyeing move for Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar.
The Slovakia international joined Inter from Sampdoria for a fee in the region of 34 million euros in July 2017. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
He has featured in 27 matches for Inter this term, netting four goals.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in Slovakia. Skriniar has also left his mark at the international stage after netting three goals in 48 senior appearances for the Slovakia national team.
He is set to be a man in demand in the summer transfer window, with a host of clubs queuing up to pursue his signature.
Jürgen Klopp wants to sign a new centre-back and Skriniar is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him to Liverpool.
The Reds are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The former Sampdoria man is often quick to scan the danger and is not shy of getting stuck in with some well-timed tackles to help secure possession back for his side. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Skriniar’s situation is a little more complex owing to the fact he has 18 months remaining on his contract at Inter Milan. But Inter’s hand could be forced into a sale this summer to avoid the prospect of losing the centre-back for nothing next year.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Reds will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Inter Milan to the negotiating table. Liverpool have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
Good signing for Liverpool?
If Skriniar is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Liverpool.
The centre-back is in the peak of his career right now and he might want to prove his quality in the Premier League if an opportunity comes his way.
All in all, Skriniar will be an ideal choice for Jürgen Klopp as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his defenders.
How strong that interest is and whether Liverpool will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
