Benjamin Pavard is in talks to sign with Liverpool

Liverpool Football Club’s active involvement in the transfer market has caught the attention of many. There’s a possibility they will continue pursuing signings before the impending closure of the transfer window. A notable player who has emerged in connection with a potential move to Anfield is Benjamin Pavard.

Benjamin Pavard is a versatile defender hailing from Bayern Munich and the French national team. It was reported by Christian Falk last month that Liverpool had initiated talks with Pavard’s management regarding a potential transfer to the club. Pavard, known for his ability to play as both a right-back and center-back, is currently seeking a new club.

However, Liverpool is currently grappling with limited options in their defensive lineup, and the availability of Ibrahima Konate for their upcoming match against Newcastle is uncertain. Strengthening their defensive roster before the transfer window closes would undoubtedly be advantageous for Liverpool. On the other hand, the situation surrounding Pavard is intriguing. It appears that Inter Milan is currently leading the race to secure his signature. Reports suggest that Inter Milan and Bayern Munich have reached a preliminary agreement regarding a transfer fee of around £27.5 million. However, an official deal has not been finalized as of now.

Thomas Tuchel on Pavard’s plans

Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Bayern Munich, has shed some light on the Pavard situation. He mentioned that Pavard had expressed his desire to move on. Though the timing of this request was a surprise to him. Tuchel emphasized the importance of finding an appropriate replacement to ensure the club’s best interests are protected.

With no formal agreement in place yet, the situation leaves room for Liverpool to potentially make their own move for Pavard. As the transfer window’s closure looms, Liverpool could explore the opportunity to bolster their defensive lineup by pursuing the versatile French defender. However, competition from Inter Milan and other factors will likely play a role in the outcome of this transfer saga.
