Liverpool to ‘Prioritise’ Centre-Back Signing for Arne Slot

2 minutes read

With Arne Slot looking almost certain to be Liverpool’s next manager, there is now more clarity at the club, crucial as they approach the summer transfer window.

It marks the first summer without Jurgen Klopp’s tenure in nearly a decade, ushering in a new era under the leadership of Michael Edwards, Richard Hughes, and Slot himself.


Italian journalist Romano has confirmed Liverpool’s focus on center-backs for the upcoming transfer window, highlighting it as a priority discussion point with Slot’s involvement.

Following an inconsistent season, Liverpool aims to strengthen their squad during the transfer window. Concerns arise over Virgil van Dijk’s age at 32 and Ibrahima Konate’s injury-prone history. Additionally, Joel Matip’s contract expires in the summer, with no renewal in sight for the injury-plagued defender.


Fabrizio Romano writes on X:

“Liverpool have already started looking at centre backs for the summer transfer window as one of the priority positions to cover.”

“Internal talks are taking place about options and list to be discussed with Arne Slot in the next weeks.”

Liverpool has already been associated with players like Frankfurt’s Willian Pacho and Chelsea’s Levi Colwill. Pacho, in particular, has consistently emerged as a potential target for the Anfield club under Slot’s management.

The center-back market offers numerous appealing options for Liverpool. Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo presents a viable choice, especially as he is available on a free transfer. Another consideration is Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi. Beyond the Premier League, players like Ousmane Diomande and Davick Hancko could also catch Liverpool’s attention. Ultimately, only time will reveal which players Liverpool will pursue.
