Liverpool are unlikely to target a left-back this summer, according to Paul Gorst of the Liverpool Echo. During a recent Q&A session with some of the club’s supporters. Gorst claimed that Jurgen Klopp is ‘happy’ with his current options, with James Milner and Joe Gomez both able deputise there competently.

He also mentioned 19-year-old Yasser Larouci, who the Anfield giants signed from French side Le Havre back in 2017 (as per liverpoolfc.com). In our view, if the club were to look at bringing in another full-back, it would have to be somebody willing to play second fiddle to Andrew Robertson, who has made the position his own by starting in 93% of the Reds’ Premier League fixtures this season.

Here is what some of the Liverpool fans have had to say in response to the update after it was relayed on Twitter by @AnfieldEdition.

Would you like to see Liverpool sign another left-back this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Whilst some fans clearly disagree with Jurgen Klopp’s reported stance on the left-back position, others shared their excitement regarding the potential of Larouci and what he may be able to offer the side if given the opportunity.

It’s not known whether Liverpool will spend big this summer as it is unclear what kind of impact the global pandemic will have on the upcoming transfer window. However, you could argue given how successful this current side has been this season, there is no desperate need for the club to invest a significant amount in the squad.
