Liverpool have emerged as the bookmakers’ favourite to sign want-away Dortmund centre-back, Neven Subotic.
According to the Daily Express, we’ve now overtaken both Sunderland and Stoke City in the race to secure his signature.
The 27-year-old defender found opportunities at Dortmund hard to come by last season after a series of injuries, and he recently announced he’d leave the club he’s been an integral part of since 2008.
He is now been priced at 8/11 to join us by Betstars, with Sunderland and Stoke dropping back to 5/2 and 3/1 respectively.
We certainly seem like we need a new centre back; Kolo Toure will leave on a free in a couple of days, Martin Skrtel looks set to move to Italy or Turkey, and the Mamadou Sakho situation is still unclear. Of course, we’ve already bagged Joel Matip on a free, but some extra cover is clearly needed.
