Xabi Alonso may have hinted at Liverpool’s alternative if they can’t sign Levi Colwill

Having already signed two midfielders as part of a long-awaited overhaul of the engine room, a new centre-back, preferably on the left, is also on Liverpool’s wish list this summer.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed this back in May when he was directly asked if he would like to bring in a new centre-back.

“We are looking in every department apart from goalkeeper at the moment,” the Reds boss told reporters. “Yeah, if there’s a good one (centre back) out there, I wouldn’t deny it. That’s all. We look at all areas of the pitch, for sure.”

As a result, Liverpool have been linked with a host of names throughout the summer as a result. And while club sources have dismissed speculation crediting the Reds with interest in Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard and Sporting Lisbon’s Goncalo Inacio, other rumors remain linked.

Chelsea’s Levi Colwill has his admirers at Anfield and he certainly caught the eye when he helped England win the European Under-21 Championship this summer. Elsewhere, Liverpool continue to be linked with Torino’s Perr Schuurs and VfL Wolfsburg’s Micky van de Ven, although it is Tottenham Hotspur who are reportedly currently in talks to sign the latter.

Colwill appears to be the current subject of the Reds’ desires, although a transfer appears difficult to complete at this stage. Football London has reported that Liverpool have made ‘several enquiries’ about the defender’s availability, but Chelsea have no desire to sell as things stand.
