Strange Pacho rumour, coach departs & injury blow – Latest Liverpool FC News

Liverpool are still claimed to be eyeing a move for a long-time centre-back target, while the club’s longest-serving coach will leave Anfield this summer.


Liverpool could sign Pacho in advance?!

Willian Pacho has been linked with a move to Liverpool a number of times of late, having caught the eye for Eintracht Frankfurt.

According to a new claim from Bild, the Reds are looking to sign the 22-year-old this summer – before loaning him out to his current club again.

That would mean Pacho joins up with Liverpool’s squad for good in 2025, at which point Virgil van Dijk will be 34 and arguably in need of a long-term replacement.

It would only make sense if another centre-back comes in this summer.
