Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Maria Gimenez this summer.
According to AS, Jurgen Klopp’s side are looking for a replacement for Dejan Lovren, who is about to run out on his contract at Anfield and could leave the European champions ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
However, not only Gimenez but RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano and Inter Milan’s Alessandro Bastoni, are also on the Reds’ radar.
Meanwhile, Liverpool fans debate on social media over Gimenez, as some of them would be really happy to see him play at Anfiled, while others do not seem to agree. Here is the selection of the fans’ reactions.
He has 120 million release clause or something
Ibrahima konate or ozan kabak are the one we should chase

Gimenez is too injury prone. Has missed 20+ games every season for the past few years

Hell yeah. We need a solid defender when Klopp wants to rotate
