Andreas Christensen, 27, Barcelona, has been linked with a return to the Premier League.
“Liverpool are considering a move for Christensen this summer to bolster their defense,” Spanish outlet El Nacional reported on Monday (Aug. 28).
Christensen left Chelsea on a free transfer last year to join Barcelona. After an up-and-down season at Chelsea, not many people expected much from his move to Barcelona.
Contrary to expectations, Christensen quickly settled in at Barcelona. He has established himself as a key defender for Barcelona, contributing greatly to the buildup at the back as well as his solid defense.
The support from the club and fans was overwhelming. The fact that Christensen was brought in on a free transfer made 토토사이트 his performance all the more pleasing for Barcelona.
His newfound status has sparked transfer speculation: “Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is a big fan of Christensen. He has already personally asked the club to sign him.”
Signing a defender is one of Liverpool’s biggest challenges this summer. After suffering from defensive insecurity last season, the Reds are determined to bring in a partner for Virgil van Dijk this summer.
A deal for Christensen is not unlikely. Barcelona will have to sell some players this summer in order to find financial balance.
There are even specific transfer fees. “Barcelona have set a transfer fee of £40 million for Christensen, who joined on a free transfer,” the outlet said.
