Liverpool in the race for £97m+ star who Jurgen Klopp is pushing for ahead of next season



Liverpool on course for over £97m Star Jurgen Klopp is eyeing ahead of next season


Liverpool are looking for a new central defender this summer and Jürgen Klopp is pushing for RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol.

The Croatia defender is one of Europe’s most sought-after defenders following his impact in Leipzig and two very impressive campaigns at the World Cup and EURO 2020.

According to The Times, the 21-year-old has a £97million release clause in his contract which will be activated in 2024 and expires in the summer of 2027. As such, the Bundesliga club could ask for more than £100million this summer for the young defender.

Football Insider reports that Liverpool are in the running to sign Gvardiol, but it’s hard to imagine that happening if the Reds also want Jude Bellingham. The report says Jurgen Klopp is urging the Liverpool board to invest heavily this summer and the German manager wants Gvardiol as the Reds are set to let go of one of their current defensive stars this summer.

The Merseyside club will face competition from Man United, Man City and Real Madrid for the Croatian star – two of those clubs are also in the running for Jude Bellingham.
