Liverpool are interested in signing Aissa Mandi from Real Betis in the summer of 2021, according to Estadio Deportivo. It has been reported that Liverpool, AC Milan and Inter Milan wanted to secure the services of the defender last summer, and that the defending Premier League champions are still interested in him.
Mandi has been on the books of Betis since 2016 and is an important player in the team. The Algeria international is at the top of his game at the age of 29, and he is good enough to play for a bigger club such as Liverpool. According to WhoScored, the centre-back has made 19 starts and one substitute appearance in La Liga so far this season, scoring three goals in the process.
Liverpool signed Ben Davies from Preston North End and Ozan Kabak on loan from Schalke in the January transfer window. Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are long-term injury concerns. However, when all of them are and fit available, there is an argument to be made that the Reds do not actually need another centre-back.
