Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor could make a summer move to Liverpool, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post
The former England U19 international handed in a transfer request last summer with his contract set to expire at the end of this season.
That means that any club that signs him will only have to pay a compensation fee for his services.
The Yorkshire Evening Post reports: “United’s new co-owner, Andrea Radrizzani, bought into Leeds with the quiet hope of initiating discussions about Taylor’s future but the 23-year-old appears set on leaving when the season ends. Sources close to him believe a move to Liverpool is possible.”
The Reds boss could well be in the market for a new left-back in the summer, with the 49-year-old tactician planning talks with his peripheral figures at the end of the season, most likely including the Spanish flop Alberto Moreno.
Klopp’s first-choice left-back James Milner has struggled for form since the turn of the year, however, and it could be argued that the German needs to replace his entire left-back ranks, and Taylor could certainly be an option.
The 23-year-old has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Leeds this season and registered three assists.
