FOOTBALL - OM Mercato: Marseille defender proposed to Liverpool

Liverpool could look to the transfer market to make up for absences. An OM defender could be of particular interest to the Mersey club, according to the English press.

OM approached by Liverpool for a defender?

Despite their sluggish start to the season, Olympique the Marseille managed to catch the eye of some teams. This is particularly the case with some of its supporters. As L’Express reveals, a Marseille defender could interest a Premier League cador. As British media noted, Duje Caleta-Car could be a bargain for the English champion. "At 24, the Croatian would fit Liverpool's recruiting strategy, which is to target talented players with room for progression and development," the newspaper said. Likewise, with the tough knocks they've had, the Reds should be in the transfer market.

Liverpool in search of Van Dijk replacement

In particular, the reigning English champion will have to end the season without Virgil Van Dijk. The Dutchman suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament in his right knee. The season is already over for the 29-year-old. Like Van Dijk, Joe Gomez will also miss several months of competition. Which should force the Mersey club to recruit. It remains to be seen whether the Reds will side with OM as suggested by the English media. Recruited in 2018, Duje Caleta-Car is still under contract until 2023. His market value is estimated at 23 million euros. An amount well within the reach of Liverpool used to spending much more in recent years. Renowned athletic, the Croatian central defender had already seen his name associated with West Ham in recent months.
