Liverpool consider making 26-year-old defender third summer signing – report
Liverpool have enquired about the availability of Napoli left-back Faouzi Ghoulam this summer, say reports
Liverpool have made an enquiry about signing Faouzi Ghoulam from Napoli this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail reports that the Reds have “asked” about the possibility of signing the 26-year-old left-back ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
Liverpool are thought to be on the hunt for reinforcements in that position after James Milner filled in for most of last season in that role.
The same story claims that Liverpool have rejected an £11m bid for Alberto Moreno from Napoli but the Reds are still keen on signing France-born Algeria international Ghoulam.
The article also states that Liverpool have shown an interest in signing Ghoulam in the past but a possible deal is now back on the cards.
Liverpool completed their second signing of the summer on Thursday when they announced the arrival of Mohamed Salah from Roma.
The Reds have also brought in young striker Dominic Solanke from Chelsea as Jurgen Klopp prepares for his second full season in charge at Anfield – and a return to the Champions League next season.
