101 covered reports on Saturday regarding Liverpool’s interest in Bayern Munich defender, Benjamin Pavard.
In said report, Christian Falk informed CaughtOffside that Benjamin Pavard has already made his intentions clear this summer, with the Reds considered a ‘hot candidate’:
“Benjamin Pavard has informed the club that he wants to move in the summer,” the SportBILD journalist wrote. “His agents are already talking to other clubs. Among them, Liverpool is now a hot candidate. “Previously, Chelsea and Barcelona were already known to be interested, as well as Italian clubs AC and Inter Milan.”
And now, Christian Falk has followed up on his report, tweeting that the agents of Benjamin Pavard are already talking with Liverpool.
This is a big boost for Liverpool as they could have a good chunk of their summer business wrapped up before pre-season starts.
The Reds have already secured the services of Alexis Mac Alister and are thought to have agreed personal terms with a second midfielder in Nice star Khephren Thuram, and are preparing a formal bid, with the Ligue 1 side expected to accept an offer of around £35m.
So, if Liverpool can also sign some cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold, they should be well-placed to once again finish inside the top-four next season.
