Rafa still interested in up and coming centre back.
The agent of Palermo defender Simon Kjaer has again confirmed Liverpool’s interest.
Mikkel Beck told Tuttosport: “I have had no contact from Juventus, Simon is happy at Palermo and in January I think he will stay at the Rosanero.
Beck added that the interest from Europe’s elite was a mark of how highly-rated his client has become, but Kjaer still had goals to achieve at Palermo.
“Of course, it’s nice to read that Simon is attracting Inter, AC Milan, Juventus, Liverpool and so on. They are big compliments, but Kjaer is only thinking of Palermo.”
“I think he will stay at Palermo in June, [but] you should ask the Rosanero management about the rest – including his price.” (Goal.com)
And that price is reportedly £8m. Now is it still the case we need defenders in the long term? Well perhaps but there is certainly no urgency on the matter. With Sotiris Kyrgiakos in the camp as cover and with Daniel Ayala coming through we seem to have a decent smattering of centre backs.
This young Danish international is by all accounts a very talented player though so well worth keeping an eye on.
