Liverpool Prepared to Agree €16million Contract to Secure Signing

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp signed the likes of Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip to strengthen his back line last summer but the defense still proved to be inconsistent.

Therefore, the former Borussia Dortmund boss is looking to further bolster his defense this summer and he wants to sign another central defender.

Southampton star Virgil van Dijk has been in the lime light for a long time but now a new name is in the focus.

Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli covered an exclusive report for The Sport Review last night and claimed that Liverpool have made a bid worth 17 million euros to sign Argentine center half Emanuel Mammana from Lyon.

The 21-year-old South American defender had an injury hit campaign last term and he could only feature in 17 league games for the French club (scored one goal).

Mammana has made three senior appearances for the national side and in all those contests, Argentina kept clean sheets. Liverpool need a proven quality center back to challenge for the title next season and in all fairness, Emanuel is not good enough.

Nevertheless, as per the provided Sport Review link, the Merseysiders are ready to offer him a five year contract worth €16million to secure his signing.
