Former West Ham United striker Marlon Harewood has been discussing the possibility of Liverpool making a transfer move to sign Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings in the near future.
Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, Harewood was asked if he thinks Mings would be a good option for Liverpool to sign due to the fact that they have both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez out with long-term injuries.
In response, Harewood had this to say on the matter.
He said: “Has he been called for that situation? I’m not sure, is he that type of player? Is he a player for Liverpool though? Would he fit into that back three, back four?”
The defender originally joined Villa on loan from his previous club AFC Bournemouth in the 2019 January transfer window. In the following summer transfer window, Mings signed to Villa permanently for a fee of £20.07 million.
Overall, the Englishman, who is currently valued at £24.3 million, has made 64 appearances for the Birmingham club in which he has managed to score six goals and provide three assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).
Would Tyrone Mings be a good fit at Liverpool?
With Mings having played a total of 59 games in the Premier League throughout his career, this shows that he has his fair share of top-flight experience that could be valuable to Liverpool if they choose to sign a new defender to fill in for Van Dijk and Gomez while the pair are out injured.
In our view, Villa would be reluctant to sell Mings to a fellow Premier League side when he has played every single league game for Dean Smith’s side so far this season which shows just how important he is to the team.
