English Premier League champions Liverpool are eyeing a move for Norwich left-back Jamal Lewis as an understudy to Andy Robertson.
The position has no understudy with manager Jurgen Klopp often using James Milner to provide cover for Robertson in case of a rotation or an injury to the Scotland captain.
The Independent now reports that Klopp wants a natural fullback to be an understudy to Robertson as they aim to defend their league title in the coming season.
After relegation back to the Championship with Norwich, Lewis is expected to cost The Reds a sum of roughly £10 million with Klopp having the belief that the player has immense potential.
The 22-year-old is represented by PLG, who also manage Robertson and fellow Anfield fullback Trent Alexander-Arnold, giving Liverpool an advantage in negotiations. His consistent performances for Norwich saw him manage 33 appearances in the Premier League for his club.
Liverpool is understood to have a shortlist of four candidates for the position, which also features Olympiakos’ Kostas Tsimikas.
