Liverpool want France World Cup hero in £32m deal

Liverpool are reportedly keen to sign Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard in a £32m deal.

Pavard, who joined Stuttgart from Lille in 2016, has a contract with his Bundesliga club until the end of the 2020-21 season.

A number of European sides have been credited with an interest in the right-back, however, since he helped France win the 2018 World Cup with a string of impressive performances.

According to KickOff, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is a firm admirer of Pavard’s talents, and the German is keen to land the defender in a £32m deal in either January or next summer’s transfer window.

Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Napoli have also all been linked with a move for Pavard over the last couple of months.
