It seems former Southampton defender Jose Fonte may have accidentally confirmed the departure of current Lille team-mate Sven Botman, who has been linked with Liverpool.
According to French outlet Foot Mercato, the Reds are keen on the 20-year-old defender, with the report also claiming the Dutchman could be signed for a fee of £27million.
Responding to an Instagram post about Botman’s impressive statistics – which alluded to the young centre-half leaving Lille – Fonte said he’s ‘happy to help’ his team-mates.
