Liverpool have drawn their match against the newly promoted side Luton Town in the premier league. This has given a shock to their title hopes as their winning is a must to get past the table toppers, Tottenham Hotspurs. Moreover, Liverpool and their defence were exposed after the match against Luton Town. Had Luiz Diaz not scored the equaliser in the injury time, the Reds would’ve seen their first defeat of the season.
The Reds currently have Virgil Van Dijk as the only promising centre back in the team. Joel Matip’s contract ends soon and it seems he’s likely to leave. Moreover, the team needs a young centre back that they can rely upon.
As per the reports , Liverpool have been linked with the Portuguese defender, Goncalo Inacio. Although Sporting Cp have signed a new deal with him during summer, they’re planning to let him leave in January. Inacio’s current contract with the Liga Nos giants has a release clause of €60 million. However, in the winter transfer window, they are willing to accept an installment plan from interested clubs.
Liverpool and their defence need some fresh pair of legs.
As per paiselygates, Liverpool, Newcastle United, Manchester United and Real Madrid are interested in signing the 22 year old Portuguese defender. Moreover, arrival of a young defender at Anfield would help both the player and the club. The player will get playing time and the club will nourish his abilities. That in turn, will give them results. However, it’s too early to say anything unless the transfer is finalized.
Moreover, as per the reports, Inacio is expected to make a decision very soon about leaving the club. Although Sporting Cp are currently leading the table in the Portuguese league, the player need to compete at a much higher level. Let’s see where this transfer scenario is heading towards.
