Jamie Carragher has told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football that he cannot praise Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa enough, amid reports that Liverpool are considering the English centre-back ahead of the summer transfer window.
Konsa, 23, was in stunning form once again on Saturday evening as Villa got their revenge on Leeds United – with a 1-0 win at Elland Road, having been beaten 3-0 earlier in the season. That is, despite coming under huge pressure throughout the game.
In the 22 Premier League matches Konsa has played this season, Villa have conceded just 26 goals – keeping a hugely impressive 11 clean sheets. Clearly, working under John Terry has helped – but other clubs are becoming interested.
The Athletic have claimed that both Liverpool and Tottenham are interested in signing Konsa – who was only bought for £12million (Athletic) in the summer of 2019 from Brentford. Carragher raved about the uncapped Englishman.
