Liverpool are reportedly interested in Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger as a possible replacement for the departed Dejan Lovren.

According to a report from Mundo Deportivo (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), the Premier League champions have shown interest in Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger as a back-up in defence.

Lovren left the club this summer after six years of service, joining Russian side Zenit St Petersburg in a £10.9million deal (via BBC Sport). Liverpool have identified their defence as an area in need of strengthening and have already welcomed left-back Kostas Tsimikas to the club, who marks their first signing of the window.

With Frank Lampard similarly looking to revamp his backline, Rudiger could be leaving Stamford Bridge. Some Liverpool fans are on board with the idea of bringing the German to Merseyside to flesh out their defensive options. Here is the selection of the  Liverpool faithful reactions.
