Kicker said Liverpool are targeting Benjamin Pavard and want to bring the Frenchman back to Anfield this summer. The 27-year-old defender has only one year left on his contract with Bayern Munich and is considering the next stop in his career.
Liverpool’s defense is no longer as stable as it used to be. Van Dijk went down to the room and Matip or Gomez were never completely trusted. Meanwhile, Alexander-Arnold has a backlog of limitations in defense and has recently been planned by Klopp to play the role of an assist midfielder.
Pavard’s playing time this season is divided equally into two positions, central defender and right-back. With Liverpool going to spend most of their transfer budget on the midfield position, a deal with a versatile player like Pavard is seen as the logical move. With the service of the French player, Jurgen Klopp partly relieves the headache in the defense.
Benjamin Pavard is a classy player who has won glory at both club and national team level. 90min rated the former Stuttgart player as “one of the best full-backs in Europe”.
Since joining Bayern Munich in 2019, Benjamin Pavard has made 161 appearances in all competitions. This season alone, the French midfielder has contributed 4 goals and 1 assist. Fotmob gives Pavard an average score of 7.56.
