Would be a dream signing imo. Perfect cover for Fab which is what we will be in the market for, not an AM, as Lallana was DM cover this season and he’s the one leaving from midfield. Camavinga is a sensation and will easily eclipse Fab soon but he’ll go to Real and ZeZu sadly.

The teenager, who is currently valued at £37.8 million according to Transfermarkt, has been one of Rennes’ top performers this campaign after picking up a season rating of 7.13/10 after 25 appearances in Ligue 1 (per WhoScored). Now that Camavinga has been linked with a summer transfer move to Anfield, this news has excited a lot of Liverpool fans who would love to see the defensive-midfielder join the club in the future.
Hopefully it’s true

What do we think?
The excitement shown from these Liverpool fans at the news of the club being linked with Camavinga just goes to show how highly thought of he is in Merseyside. According to WhoScored, Camavinga’s player attributes included his tackling and ball interception which could help the Reds’ defensive stability in the midfield areas.
