Liverpool are close to securing a deal for Aissa Mandi from Real Betis on a bargain deal, according to reports from Daily Star.
According to Daily Star reports, Liverpool is close to securing a deal for Aissa Mandi from Real Betis on a bargain deal.
While Chelsea and Manchester City likes are reportedly targeting blockbuster signatures, the champions of the Premier League appear to have a different transfer strategy.
Jurgen Klopp presumably thinks he’s got a well-equipped team and isn’t going to need too many replacements. Signing a defender after the departure of Dejan Lovren, who joined Zenit St Petersburg, is a must however.
After staying at Anfield for six years, the Croatia international made the move and his departure leaves a hole in the squad.
The Spanish outfit looks to get some money back from his move instead of losing it for free. Liverpool may need to fork out £ 9 million to secure his signature, has been suggested.
Liverpool’s ranks include Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, and Mandi could be a useful addition to that.
He’s a ball-playing defender and he’s a great ball passer. Hence he ‘d add something else to the table. At the price quoted above, if Liverpool can secure his deal, it would be a cracking piece of business.
