According to Caught Offside, Liverpool are keen on securing the signature of Sporting CP centre-back Goncalo Inacio. The Reds are set to start a new era in the 2024-25 season with Arne Slot taking over following Jurgen Klopp's departure.

Virgil van Dijk is reaching the latter stages of his career while Joel Matip is set to leave. Ibrahima Konate, on the other hand, has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain

Inacio has emerged as a target as the Portugal international is one of the best young defenders in world football at the moment. Liverpool will reportedly have to shell out £52 million to sign Inacio. The Merseysiders have made completing the deal a priority and hope to do so in the coming weeks.

Inacio is dominant in defense and has a great passing range. He has so far made 171 appearances for Sporting CP, scoring nine goals and providing 15 assists in the process.
