Liverpool Ben Davies Preston: Liverpool are in talks to sign Preston center-back Ben Davies worth around £2m.
Jürgen Klopp’s team had a lot of bad luck with injuries this season, especially in defense. Center-backs Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez are both unable to play this season.
Joel Matip was left as the only high-level central defender but has injury problems himself, Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and the inexperienced Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams were instead put on defense for much of that season.
With the transfer window scheduled to close on Monday night, Liverpool were unlikely to get a new defender in time.
But according to reports from Daily Mirror the Reds are in a serious discussion and ready to sign the center-back in time.
The report adds that the deal with Davies moves to Liverpool for around £ 2million. It is also said that Sepp van der Berg will be loaned to Preston as part of the deal.
Davies made his senior debut for Preston when he was only 17 years old. Since his first appearance in 2013, he has over 130 appearances for the EFL side.
