Liverpool eye the young French sensation Benjamin Pavard. The estimated value of the transfer lands somewhere near 35M Euros.
Remember the guy who just threw the boys of Messi on the pitch? Remember the sensational volley in Argentina v France to equalize the score? Who was behind all this? Not a superstar, not a Ronaldo, not Mbappe, not Griezmann, but Benjamin Pavard. Someone’s been keeping a close watch on the growth of Pavard. Who? The old-young assassin, Jurgen Klopp. He wants to land the French defender at Anfield. According to the Mirror, Pavard is, linked with a €35m move to the Merseyside Reds.
At 22, Pavard is very young and he’s already plying his trade at VfB Stuttgart. He has already proven his effectiveness at high tension games in the World Cup. Also, he’s capable of playing at two positions, mainly center-back & right-back.
A club linked to Benjamin Pavard is not a new thing in the town. After his heroics in the recently concluded World Cup, several clubs were after him. Tottenham was heavily linked and not to mention Bayern was there too. You know what happens when Bayern enter the race for a Bundesliga youngster. Bayern is the only Bundesliga Boss.

However, VfB Stuttgart has already cleared their intention of retaining the defender for at least one more season. He can then leave the club at a reported release clause of €35 million. Bayern will wait on the door till then.
Bayern is in the race. Period. The move looks highly unlikely and almost impossible this season. Liverpool has options at Right-Back like Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, and Nathaniel Clyne. Then why go for another option. No doubt Pavard is more impressive but still, Liverpool already has such depth in the squad.
Making desperate signings while hurdling the development of young club player is not the Klopp way. And in my opinion, another Right Back at Anfield is not needed.
