On April 29th, Dutch journalist Valentijn Driessen suggested Feyenoord’s Dávid Hancko is the only player Arne Slot should consider taking with him to Liverpool.

Fast forward to June and Monday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo says Liverpool, Leicester City and Atlético Madrid are in the picture to sign the centre-back in the summer window.

The report focuses on the La Liga side’s interest in the 26-year-old, and towards the end, they mention Liverpool and Leicester.

Diego Simeone’s side are making progress in their pursuit of Real Sociedad’s Robin Le Normand, and they are looking to sign another centre-back. This is where Hancko fits in, as per Marca.

Mundo relay that and then give their own take on the Slovakia international. It’s claimed the defender is valued at €35m, but Los Rojiblancos idea is to sign him for a lower price.

It won’t be easy for Atlético because the defender’s performances has seen other clubs, including Liverpool and Leicester, show interest in securing his signature

Mundo say they have found out that the Reds and the Foxes have asked about Hancko.

Slot managed Hancko at the Eredivisie side, and it needs to be seen whether this can give Liverpool an advantage over Leicester and Atlético in the transfer race.
