Liverpool FC keeping tabs on 18-year-old Ligue 1 defender – report
Liverpool FC are lining up a potential bid for Toulouse left-back Mathieu Goncalves, according to a report in France
Liverpool FC are monitoring Toulouse teenage defender Mathieu Goncalves, according to a report in France.
French media outlet L’Equipe, as quoted by talkSPORT, is reporting that Liverpool FC are keeping tabs on the 18-year-old following his impressive performances for his club.
The same article hints that Liverpool FC are on the lookout for a left-back capable of covering for Scotland international Andy Robertson.
According to the same story, the Premier League leaders are keeping an eye on Toulouse’s promising defender as a potential recruit to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s defensive options.
French teenager Goncalves made his senior debut for Toulouse in a 4-0 loss to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the French top flight back in August.
The Parisian-born left-back has gone on to make a further five appearances for Toulouse to earn attention from the Champions League holders ahead of the January transfer window.
Liverpool FC signed Robertson in a bargain deal from Hull City back in the 2017 summer transfer window to provide Spanish defender Alberto Moreno with competition for a starting spot.
The Scottish full-back has since established himself as Klopp’s first-choice left-back, featuring in successive Champions League finals against Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool FC are 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
