Liverpool in the battle to sign 23-year-old Super League defender

Young Boys could brace themselves for a raid from PL, over the possible transfer of three of their main talents, including Mohamed Ali Camara. Guinea international has enjoyed immense success in the Swiss League, thereby attracting the interest of several top teams around England, including Liverpool and Arsenal.

A former member of Satellite, in his native Guinea, Mohamed has even been a defensive lynchpin for Young Boys, notching up 67 competitive games since joining the club in 2018. His displays at the heart of the defence have also earned him a breakthrough in the Guinean national side, captained by Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita.

The ex-RB Leipzig midfielder may even have played a major role in Liverpool’s pursuit of Camara, although, in truth, Liverpool have been linked with a plethora of defensive options ahead of the summer transfer window in light of their injury crisis in the ongoing season.

Ibrahima Konate, for one, has been one of the major names linked with an imminent move to Anfield being reported while Ozan Kabak’s loan deal could be permanent by Reds as well. However, it appears Jurgen Klopp is determined to further reinforce his defensive department, especially as he prepares for a future without the ageing Joel Matip.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are equally in disarray in such regard. Although Arsenal do have a lot of depth in the defender unit, they are braced to lose David Luiz after the end of the season while Sead Kolasinac and Calum Chambers are likely to be sold permanently in the upcoming summer transfer window.
