Liverpool are preparing to make a formal offer to Barcelona for Defender Thomas Vermaelen. Vermaelen has suffered through an injury filled first season at Barcelona, wherein he was mostly unavailable and his second season did not help him impress he viewers or the coaches as he struggled with his form.
The formal Arsenal man is looking to escape from the Catalan giants and will be keen to be back in the Premier League wherein he may get more first team chances.
The Reds are in the market to reinforce their defenses and Borussia Dortmund player Neven Subotic may just be the right candidate for the same. Reports suggest that Liverpool may sign Subotic in summer to bolster their defenses.
Barcelona’s Marc Bartra is one of the top targets for Liverpool. Reports from Spain suggest that the player may be available at a bargain price of £10m. Barcelona may extend the player’s contract for another year, but the release clause may not be too high.
