Liverpool asked to spend £100m on Foxes defender

Tim Sherwood suggests spending £100m on Wesley Fofana.

The Reds have to solve their defensive crisis in this transfer window and Foxes defender Wesley Fofana seems like a viable option according to Tim Sherwood.

Both Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez are long-term absentees whereas Joel Matip and Fabinho are sidelined with their respective injuries.

Sherwood said to Sky Sports: “It’s difficult, what’s out there? Do you go out there and get someone, and then when Gomez and Van Dijk are fit you end up with a player who shouldn’t be anywhere near a Liverpool shirt?

“I don’t think they’re in the scattergun approach method. I think Michael Edwards, the sporting director, is very calculated in what he does.

“I’m sure he’ll communication with Jurgen Klopp. Perhaps there’s someone on a short-term deal who’s out of contract now that they can bring in, I think they should do that.

“Someone who knows the job if they’re playing in that position, but centre-back is a specialist position.

“Unless they really push the boat out and go get a Declan Rice, who can also play in midfield, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

“Or go and get a young one like Fofana and really push the boat out by offering £100m plus to test the arm of Leicester.

“I think it’s going to be difficult for them to do, so will they do anything? I don’t think they will.”
