Soyuncu, given his proven pedigree in the Premier League and his age, would be a great addition to our side. The report goes on to state that Leicester value the 23-year-old at £45m.
Dejan Lovren is facing an uncertain future at the club, with his contract expiring in a year. However, given that the likes of Ki-Jana Hoever and Sepp van den Berg are waiting in the wings, it will be interesting to see if Jurgen Klopp brings in a centre-back or backs the youngsters.
