Liverpool defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos is the latest player to be linked with a move to Juventus.
Liverpool defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos is the latest defender who’s being linked with a move to Serie A side Juventus. A report in Corriere dello Sport claims that La Vecchia Signora are considering making a move for the Greek international before the end of the transfer window.
Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri is eager to add some more depth to his defence and the Turin side have been linked with players such as Andrea Barzagli, Salvatore Bocchetti and Thomas Manfredini in the past couple of weeks.
However, Juve have now apparently turned their attention to the relatively cheap Kyrgiakos. The 31-year-old defender joined Liverpool from AEK Athens in the summer of 2009, but has so far failed to secure regular first team action at the English side.
Kyrgiakos’ current contract with Liverpool runs until the summer of 2011 and the Reds are supposedly ready to cash in on the defender during this transfer window in order to prevent him from leaving on a free transfer next year. (Goal.com)
If this rumour is true then Liverpool could be set to offload reliable defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos very soon. The player has proved to be one of Liverpool’s best acquisitions in recent years, providing a good option in the centre of defence.
It is yet another possible deal between Liverpool and Juventus, who seem to be developing some sort of relationship regarding transfers. Aquilani and Poulsen have swapped clubs, and David Trezeguet has also been linked with a move to Anfield.
Can Liverpool afford to lose any more players? Who would replace Kyrgiakos?
