Liverpool ready for transfer as Klopp considering offers for 32-year-old veteran

Liverpool are reportedly willing to listen to offers for defender Ragnar Klavan during the remainder of the summer transfer window.

The 32-year-old is keen to secure more regular first-team football, but finds himself behind Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez in the pecking order at Anfield.

The Reds rejected an approach from Premier League rivals Newcastle United ahead of last week’s domestic deadline, but the Liverpool ECHO reports that they are open to selling the centre-back.

Matip and Lovren are both nearing returns from injury problems, leaving manager Jurgen Klopp more open to the idea of granting Klavan permission to leave the club.

The Estonia international is in the final year of his initial three-year contract at Anfield, although Liverpool have the option to extend that by a further year.

Klavan, whose preference is understood to be a return to the Bundesliga, has made 53 appearances for the club over the past two seasons.
