Marseille defender welcomes Liverpool bid in the summer

Olympique Marseille defender Duje Caleta-Car would be interested in a move to Anfield in the summer.

Caleta was a winter target for Liverpool in January but a deal wasn’t reached and the latest reports from Give Me Sport (GMS) indicate that the player would be interested in making a switch to the Premier League if Liverpool were willing to come back for him at the end of the season.

“It may seem that the ship has sailed on Caleta-Car’s chances of joining Liverpool anytime soon. However, it is understood that the player would welcome another approach for his services, and is hopeful that the opportunity for him to move to Anfield has merely been postponed rather than canceled,” Sam Brookes wrote on GMS.

Liverpool is in the market for a central defender to deputize both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomes who are expected to return next season with the Croatian center half prize said to be something that interests the Jurgen Klopp side.

Caleta had been approached by the Reds in January and even though he was valued at €25m, Marseille’s reluctance to part ways with the 24-year-old led to the loan signing of Ozan Kabak alongside Ben Davies.
