Liverpool would be wise to sign this £10.2m-rated defender during the summer transfer window

The Liverpool supporters have been a bunch of excitable fans at times during this season and this past week saw them rejoice over a 1-0 win at Watford which kept them on course for a return to the Champions League.

For years the Liverpool contingent has taken a fair amount of stick from their Manchester United supporting rivals but this season looks to go against form, with the Reds set to finish higher than the Red Devils.

Regardless of where Liverpool finish this season it is pretty clear that if the club are to challenge for the league title next season then they will need to recruit a top quality central defender during the summer months, with the team’s defending at times this season nothing sort of horrific.

The Reds are likely to have some money to spend during the summer transfer window, especially if a top four finish is secured and it could be Burnley defender Michael Keane who holds all the aces for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

According to, the 24-year-old is valued at just £10.2 million and his arrival at Anfield would see the Reds steal a march on divisional rivals Manchester United and Tottenham who are both though to be interested in the uncompromising defender.

Several Liverpool supporters would be delighted to see Keane arrive at the club, with one in particular stating that his arrival alone would already enhance the team’s chances of winning the Premier League title.

The ball playing defender has been in inspirational form for the Clarets this season and he has been a massive part of the club’s survival in the top flight following promotion last season.
