Gini explains PSG choice, another CB linked?! – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool’s transfer rumours have been fairly consistent and repetitive since the end of the season but today we bring you a new defensive name and some contract talk.


Second new centre-back incoming?

Liverpool have already landed Ibrahima Konate, but there was a suspicion toward the end of last term that we’d sign two defenders if we could.

That’s what happened in January, albeit with short-term fixes in Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak, and reports from Italy say a Serie A star is on our radar.

Atalanta’s Cristian Romero is the target of our affections, apparently; an absolutely superb Argentina international who has just won Italy’s top-flight award for best defender in 2020/21.

He has also just joined Atalanta on a permanent deal, having been on a long loan from Juventus, and Calciomercato suggest they’ll immediately cash in on a profit by selling him for around €50million.

If he’s a real target, rest assured we’re window shopping at the highest level. Add him and our centre-back picks are among the best in Europe – pending any departures, of course.
