Liverpool is getting serious and wants to sign Willian Pacho

Liverpool is getting ‘serious’ regarding a move for Eintracht Frankfurt defender Willian Pacho this summer, according to reports.

The Reds will also look to extend the contract of defender Jarell Quansah, to solidify the defence for years to come at Anfield.

Quansah, 21, enjoyed a breakthrough season for Liverpool after injuries to Ibrahima Konaté, Joël Matip and Joe Gomez fast-tracked his route into the first team. The England U21 international made 31 appearances across all competitions, starting 25 of these outings in red.

According to The Mirror, Liverpool is now ready to offer a ‘lucrative new deal’ to Quansah in the coming months, given his development in the senior squad this season. The young defender is in line for a major role under new boss Arne Slot, who is set to take over from Jürgen Klopp in the coming months.

Liverpool wants to improve their defence by signing Willian Pacho

He only signed a new deal at the club last summer but Liverpool will now look to tie him down with a significant pay rise ahead of next season. However, the fresh deal for Quansah will not change the recruitment plans of CEO MIchael Edwards and sporting director Richard Hughes in the summer, as the Reds look to add further reinforcements within the back four.

One of which could be Frankfurt ace Willian Pacho. The 22-year-old has regularly been link with a move to Anfield and fits the profile of the left-footed central defender the club so desperately needs. According to German outlet Bild, Liverpool is getting ‘serious’ regarding a move for the Ecuadorian international.

It is also believe that talks have already begun regarding a potential move to the club this summer, although Frankfurt could demand a figure in the region of $62million (£50m/€58m) to part ways with the player. Pacho has started 31 of the 32 games for his current side throughout the 2023/24 campaign, with Frankfurt currently sitting in sixth place within the Bundesliga.

Chelsea ace Levi Colwill is another name being consider by Liverpool. However, it is unlikely that the Blues will sell to a direct rival ahead of the 2024/25 season.
