Liverpool weighing up move for Sampdoria defender Omar Colley

Liverpool are reportedly weighing up a move for Sampdoria defender Omar Colley.

The Reds are yet to bring a new centre-back to the club during this summer’s transfer window despite the fact that Dejan Lovren has moved on.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had been linked with a move for Brighton & Hove Albion’s Ben White, but the Englishman ultimately signed a new long-term contract at the Amex.

According to SampNews24, the Premier League champions are weighing up an approach for Colley, who has a £10.8m release clause in his current contract.

The 27-year-old, who sees his current deal with Sampdoria expire in June 2022, made 31 Serie A appearances during the 2019-20 campaign.

Liverpool will be looking to make it successive wins at the start of the new Premier League season when they travel to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
