Could this guy be on his way to Anfield or heading for Championship football?
Liverpool are ready to raid the Riverside for David Wheater this summer if Middlesbrough go down.
An field chief Rafa Benitez is looking for a long-term replacement for veteran central defender Sami Hyypia and believes that England Under-21 stopper Wheater fits the mould.
Boro boss Gareth Southgate doesn’t want to sell the uncompromising Teessider but, with the club £93million in debt, relegation could force his hand.
A bid of about £10m for a player who cost nothing would certainly be hard to refuse if Middlesbrough find themselves looking at Championship football next season. (Sunday Mirror)
Hyypia was immense against United but he clearly is coming to the end of his time at the club and perhaps David Wheater would fit the bill as a replacement? With doubts surrounding the Anfield future of Daniel Agger clearly Rafa needs to consider a centre back signing and it seems this Boro man and Fulham rock Brede Hangeland are the ones most commonly the source of speculation in the papers. Who do Liverpool fans think the club should bring in?
