Liverpool eyeing Betis full-back

Liverpool are considering making a summer move for Real Betis full-back Aissa Mandi.

The 28-year old Algerian international has only one year left on his current contract with the Spanish side, and Liverpool may have the opportunity to make a cheap deal of around £10 million because Betis are desperately need to raise funds as they struggle to cope with the financial aftermath of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Jurgen Klopp’s side want to add some defensive reinforcements this summer, especially in the full-back area where they are looking to add experienced cover to the pairing of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.

They are also having to manage with the departure of Dejan Lovren, who is on the brink of sealing a move to the Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg.

Part of the appeal of Mandi – who is also on Newcastle’s radar – is his versatility; he can play anywhere across the back line.
