Botman's agent plays down Liverpool done deal claims

Agent of Liverpool target Sven Botman's has responded to claims that a done deal has been completed with his client

Premier League champions Liverpool were desperate to snap up a defender last month with Joel Matip , Gomez and Van Dijk sidelined until next season.

The Reds,  in the end, signed Ozan Kabak from Schalke on loan while Ben Davies joined from Preston North End for a small fee.

Another name who was strongly linked was Lille star Botman, who has impressed a number of scouts recently.

Reports in France emerged that the Ligue 1 club had agreed a deal with an unnamed side that would see the Dutchman leave in the summer.

And it was thought that Liverpool were in pole position.

But now Botman's agent has rubbished those reports, insisting no such deal has been agreed.

Dutch publication Voetbalzone claims Nikkie Bruinenberg has branded them “fake news”.

Botman only signed for Lille last year from Ajax and has made an immediate impact, starring in central defence without making a single error leading to a chance.

Several clubs are reportedly interested in the 21-year-old, with Liverpool not the only side who have been linked.
