It is no secret that Liverpool are in a dire need to sign a left back this summer. The club have been linked with a number of players, but nothing till date has been materialised. Now, according to the report from Mirror, Jurgen Klopp, is currently considering a move for Leeds ace Charlie Taylor.
The 22-year-old left back recently handed a transfer request, which the Leeds’ boss Garry Monk rejected as he wants to keep the player at Elland Road. The same source has stated that the player is also chased by a number Premier League clubs, including, West Brom and Middlesbrough. Taylor has one year of his contract left to run and has refused to talk over an improved deal to stay with the Championship side.
Taylor, who has spent four loan spells in his career, is currently rated at £7 million, and it will be interesting to see, where this 22-year-old ends up.
Furthermore, the reports from The Daily Mail has suggested that fellow Premier League side Stoke City are considering a loan move for Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho. Stoke boss Mark Hughes previously tried to sign Manchester United defender Phil Jones, but the player insisted that he wants work under Mourinho.
Now, the manager has set his sights on Liverpool centre-back, Mamadou Sakho. The source further stated that Stoke have a good working relation with Liverpool, hence, the deal might take place. The arrival of the players like Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip has endangered the future of Sakho, therefore, a deal with Stoke City does make sense.
Stoke have already signed Joe Allen from Liverpool this summer and are keen for Sakho to make the same trip before the end of the transfer window.
