Despite signing Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak (on loan from Schalke) in the winter market, Liverpool continue to be linked with central defenders.

It’s claimed there will be a ‘revolution’ at the Italian club and as a part of it, two of their centre-backs, Milenković and Germán Pezzella, are ‘set to leave’ in the summer.

This is the reason that ‘forces’ La Viola to sell the defender when the transfer window reopens, in order to ‘collect a decent amount’ and to not let him leave for free in the summer of 2022.

It’s claimed England will be Milenković’s ‘very likely destination’, with Liverpool and Manchester United in the ‘front row’ for his signing.

Whether or not Jürgen Klopp’s side will win the battle for Milenković’s signature isn’t mentioned and it’s too early now to predict where the defender will end up in the summer.
