Chelsea could offer €50m for Liverpool defensive target

Liverpool could face competition from Chelsea in the summer market.

It is no secret that Liverpool want to sign a new centre-back during the current transfer window.

Joe Gomez’s form has been poor for a while now, while Joel Matip is getting on and unlikely to have too many years left at the top level.

One of the names linked with an Anfield switch has been Sporting and Portugal centre-back, Goncalo Inacio.

Now, however, a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes claims that Mauricio Pochettino is an admirer of the talented young defender and Chelsea could launch an offer of around €50 million for him.

Chelsea lost Wesley Fofana to a long-term injury recently, but they have since signed AS Monaco’s Axel Disasi.

But given they will need to replace Thiago Silva next year, it is easy to see why the west Londoners are looking at someone like Inacio.

Inacio is just 21 years of age and has spent his entire career at Sporting, where he has already notched over 120 appearances for their senior side. The centre-back has also been called up to the Portuguese national team, and earned his debut during the March international break.
