Liverpool join four horse race for Premier League defender
Liverpool will look to target one of the Premier League’s most sought-after defenders in the summer but they are not the first to register their interest in the player.
Burnley defender Michael Keane is that player and is being chased by clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Merseyside rivals Everton.
The Englishman has impressed for Burnley and has been their star man in a less than impressive season for the relegation-threatened side.
Keane has also been brought into the England setup this week in another big show of faith in his abilities by manager Gareth Southgate.
The 24-year-old is likely to move on in the summer with the linked clubs all in the top seven and it is thought at this stage that Everton are favourites for the players signature.
Everton are looking to sign a centre-back with only Ashley Williams, Phil Jagielka and Ramiro Funes Mori as senior central defenders.
One thing is for certain, there will be a battle for his signature during the summer and there is no doubt that Burnley will be receiving a big fee for the player.
