Liverpool ready to activate £75m release clause to sign La Liga star – El Nacional

Posted by

Liverpool are reportedly willing to pay the release clause for Sevilla’s Joules Kounde this month.

The French central defender has impressed for the La Liga side so far this term and the Reds are now willing to meet the £75m valuation for the former Bordeaux man, as per El Nacional (via TEAMtalk).

The Spanish publication is also claiming that the former Mainz boss wants to sign the 23-year-old this month to prevent other sides from capturing his signature.

Kounde is said to be interested in coming to Anfield (if the publication can be believed), however, our squad depth in the centre of defence, with the likes of Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk competing for a place, makes it seem unlikely that we’d wish to broaden our options.

Of course, given that Joe Gomez and Nat Phillips have both struggled to earn minutes so far this term, the option to sign one of Europe’s most wanted defenders could prove tempting for Klopp down the line.

That being said, for the amount touted, it seems doubtful that we’ll be capable of forking out such a figure as early as January.

Ultimately, with such quality available to the club as it is, that’s not necessarily a tragedy.
