He is also physically strong, with an imposing stature and impressive aerial ability.

However, Liverpool will face stiff competition from Chelsea, who are also keen to sign Gvardiol. The London club has obviously been on the lookout for a new centre-back to bolster their defensive options with the growing age of Thiago Silva and Kalidou Koulibaly, and Gvardiol is reportedly high on their list of targets.

However, Liverpool will need to move quickly to secure Gvardiol’s signature, with Chelsea and also Manchester City interested in the player’s services.
