Liverpool are supposedly interested in Real Madrid’s £22m rated right-back Danilo, who currently warms their bench behind the excellent Dani Carvajal.
That’s being circulated in the Daily Star among others, but it originated in Italy – which goes some in explaining why we reckon it’s nonsense.
The reports suggest that the capped Brazilian wants out in the summer and that Jurgen Klopp is offering him a lifeline having failed since switching to Madrid from Porto.
But why on earth would Liverpool shell out a large proportion of our transfer budget on a right-back, the one position in the team we’re definitely covered!
Not only do we have Nathaniel Clyne entering his peak years, but Trent Alexander-Arnold, one of the most exciting teenagers to come though our ranks in years, backing him up.
Why we’d want a South American who can’t defend to come in and usurp those two is a mystery.
And this is why we believe in no uncertain terms that the report is entirely bogus.
As you were.
