Liverpool’s chances of landing Valencia defender Adil Rami have been handed a boost after the La Liga side reportedly priced Italian giants AC Milan out of contention.
The 28-year-old is currently on loan at the San Siro and, after impressing in his first season in Serie A, head coach Clarence Seedorf is keen to extend his stay next term.
However, according to Deportevalenciano. com, Milan and Valencia cannot agree on a fee, leaving the France international’s future up in the air. A source close to Liverpool told that boss Brendan Rodgers is anxious to bolster his backline in anticipation of an assault on next season’s Champions League, and has identified Rami as a key target. Valencia are keen to either sell the player or loan him out again, after he fell out with the club last year following his decision to go public with negative comments about his own team.
The Anfield source claims the Reds are determined to add more defensive options to their squad when the summer transfer window opens. Watch Chelsea v Stoke on Saturday and Arsenal v Everton, West Ham v Liverpool on Sunday.
