Liverpool might sign Willian Pacho next summer as Arne requested

Liverpool are set for a new era as of next season, with Arne Slot set to take the Reds reins after Jurgen Klopp leaves Anfield.

On Friday, Liverpool reportedly struck a deal over Slot, who now looks set to take over from Klopp at the end of the season.

We’ve also had Michael Edwards become CEO of Football at FSG, while Richard Hughes is expected to become the Reds’ director of football this summer.

With all these elements in place, Liverpool should be able to put together a solid transfer policy for the summer that will ensure continuity in squad quality.

One area the Reds could do with boosting is at centre-back, with Joel Matip leaving at the end of the season,

Ibrahima Konate struggling of late, and Virgil van Dijk set to turn 33 soon.

And according to a report from Italy, Liverpool are looking at one of the Bundesliga’s best up-and-coming defenders to bolster their ranks.

The player in question is Willian Pacho, who has been impressing for Eintracht Frankfurt this season.

Also according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Liverpool have made the 22-year-old their ‘objective’ to strengthen their backline for 2024/25.
