Liverpool would reportedly have to pay €60 million in January to get Sporting Lisbon defender Goncalo Inacio, who is also wanted by Manchester United.
Jurgen Klopp spent the summer transfer window focusing on rebuilding his midfield, but it’s no secret that the Reds manager is also looking to strengthen his defense.
According to a new TEAMtalk story, Klopp no longer trusts Joe Gomez, whose recent form has been erratic, and that Liverpool is now looking to replace him with Inacio.
Man United are also interested in the promising 22-year-old. Erik ten Hag wants to get rid of Harry Maguire in January or at the end of the season, therefore Inacio might be signed in his place.
Both Premier League rivals will be aiming for a top-four finish this season, with Liverpool now five points ahead of Manchester United.
Inacio is regarded as one of Europe’s top young defenders, and he might be a game-changer for either squad.
With that in mind, we could see Liverpool and Manchester United compete for his signature this winter.
