Despite reports surfacing this week linking Liverpool with Sevilla centre-back Clement Lenglet, they can be considered baseless at this stage.
Whether this is a first-choice centre-back to partner Virgil van Dijk or another squad player remains to be seen, but it is highly unlikely to be Lenglet.
Spanish publication Sport reported on Monday afternoon that Barcelona had “already made contact” with their Liga rivals over a possible €45 million move.
They claim that “Real Madrid and some English clubs have been looking at signing him,” which swiftly prompted speculation over Premier League suitors.
Unfortunately between the initial report and Sport‘s follow-up on Tuesday morning touting Liverpool with a bid certain wires have been crossed.
