FSG sent Raphael Varane transfer message


Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has urged Reds to sign Real Madrid's Raphael Varane

FSG have been told to make a 'huge' statement' this summer by bringing Raphael Varane to Liverpool by former Reds defender Glen Johnson.

Jurgen Klopp 's side have struggled this season after seeing a plethora of injuries decimate their efforts to defend the Premier League title, and are at risk of failing to qualify for next season's Champions League as a result.

However, that hasn't stopped them being linked with some of the planet's best players, including Real Madrid defender Varane.

Varane out of contract in 2022 and reports suggest the La Liga giants would prefer to cash in on the France international this summer than risk losing him for free.

And with the bulk of Liverpoo l's injuries coming in defence, Johnson has urged Reds owners FSG to back Klopp in the transfer window by signing Varane.

"Liverpool must back Klopp in the transfer market and sign top players like Varane," he told
CheltenhamGuides . "I think they will back Klopp this summer.

"I think they’ll be looking to get three or four new players in and freshen it up with new faces and younger legs, hungry players too. It doesn’t matter if you win the league or not, every team has to strengthen because if they don’t everyone else will. It’s important that the board back him and let him buy two or three players.

"When a big player like Varane walk through the door, someone who has been there and done it, it gives everybody a lift. If you’re an away team and you arrive at Anfield to see Van Dijk and Varane at the back, you’re going to think ‘how are we meant to score against these two?’, so that will be a huge statement if they can make these sort of signings."

He continued: "If Liverpool miss out on the top four they’re still a massive attraction. If they miss out on the top four this season then they won’t miss out on it again next year.

"A top player would still want to go to Liverpool as they’re still a club in a fantastic position, they’ve just gone off the boil for the last couple of months, so they won’t struggle to attract the big names at all."
