Liverpool could make an immediate bid for the £95,000-a-week star
Liverpool suffered greatly in the 2020-21 season when Virgil van Dijk missed the majority of the season due to a knee injury
The Dutch international recently suffered a hamstring injury, and the Reds, who are already in trouble, are looking to shore up their defense.
According to Inter Live, given the gravity of Van Dijk’s injury, Liverpool could move quickly to sign Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar.
According to an Italian news source, the Merseysiders could ask the Nerazzurri for a quick sale with a bid of around 40 million euros.
The Slovakian international is one of the league’s best central defenders. With Inter Milan, he has won every major domestic title and remains one of their most important players.
Without a doubt, the two-time Slovakian Player of the Year, who earns around £95,000 per week (Football Transfers), can strengthen Liverpool’s backline.
However, the reported fee of 40 million euros should be regarded as extremely high given that the central defender’s contract at the San Siro expires in just six months.
We have more pressing issues in the center of the park, and Jurgen Klopp must make a priority of bringing in a quality central midfielder this month.
In the absence of our record signing, Matip, Gomez, Konate, and Phillips should step up big time.
Should Liverpool try to sign Milan Skriniar this month, in your opinion?
