Liverpool targets Norwich left-back Jamal Lewis
Premier League 2019/20 champions, Liverpool are interested in signing Jamal Lewis, Norwich City Left back for £10m as Andy Robertson back-up.
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly eyeing the Northern Ireland defender, Jamal Lewis for a £10m move. Klopp is in need of cover for first-choice Andy Robertson in defense, particularly given Alberto Moreno’s departure last year.
The ever-reliable James Milner has often deputized for the Scotland captain when needed. But, in what is expected to a quiet window, the Reds are ready to take a gamble on the 22-year-old player relegated from the Premier League.
Reports details that the Premier League champions are excited about Lewis’ potential. Particularly given the similarities to Robertson’s situation when he moved to Anfield three years ago. The Scot was plucked from Hull City, who had also gone down to the Championship for £8m.
Since then, the price has proven to be absolute snip and there are hopes that a deal for Lewis, a year younger than when Robertson joined could prove equally valuable.
Robertson has won the Champions League last year and this season’s Premier League since usurping Moreno in his first season.
His crossing ability from out-wide with Trent Alexander Arnold equally if not more threatening on the other side, has been one of the trademarks of this all-conquering Liverpool side.
Meanwhile, Klopp is a huge admirer of Lewis who has made 28 Premier League appearances in the 2019/20 campaign, scoring once as the Canaries were relegated.
Lewis is also versatile and capable of playing a number of different defensive positions giving him more chances for first-team football.
A sweetener in any deal could be Liverpool’s young left-back Yasser Larouci moving in the opposite direction after his refusal to sign a new contract and inset to leave the Premier League champions this summer.
