Liverpool are desperate to sign £20m-rated La Liga defensive rock

Merseyside club keen on signing Real Sociedad defender Diego Llorente and preparing to make an offer in July when the transfer window opens again. Reds have problems in the back-line as Dejan Lovren, and Joe Gomez has an injury, and their back-up is necessary.

Spaniard is the best choice in this situation as he has an excellent campaign and paid attention. German manager set to spend big money for the footballer this summer. Arsenal also interested in signing him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more.

Llorente joined the Spanish club from Real Madrid in 2017 with a €7m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and played many matches amazingly since joining. In this season, Diego already made 18 appearances in all tournament which is an excellent result for the footballer. He can do much more with high-class partners.

Spanish player has contracted with the Royal until 2022, and his release clause is nearly €20m. He also named in national team squad several times which is already a significant achievement for the footballer. It will be difficult to sign him as Gunners also planning to make a big during the transfer window.

Liverpool also linked with Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt, Bournemouth footballer Nathan Ake, Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell. Merseyside club have fantastic results in Premier League as they are in a second place in the table and have a big chance to win the competition.
