Liverpool fans react as club reportedly battling Tottenham for Aston Villa defender

Liverpool are reportedly keeping tabs on Aston Villa defender Ezri Konsa but are not alone in their pursuit of the uncapped Englishman, with Spurs also monitoring his situation ahead of the summer – and Reds fans have reacted on Twitter.

Konsa, 23, has been excellent for Aston Villa this season. Alongside Tyrone Mings, he has helped Villa keep a whopping 10 clean sheets in his 20 Premier League appearances for Dean Smith’s side, benefiting from working under John Terry.

Liverpool, meanwhile, brought two central defenders to the club in January – signing Ben Davies from Preston in a somewhat surprising move, while Ozan Kabak has joined on loan from Schalke. The latter made his debut on Saturday.

But the Turkey international was wiped out by Alisson leading to Leicester’s equaliser during the 3-1 defeat, hardly the start he would have wanted. Despite also boasting Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams, the search for a centre-back has clearly not ended.

The Athletic claim Liverpool are keeping tabs on ex-Charlton defender Konsa as calls for an England call-up continue to be made. Tottenham are also keen for the £12million Villa signing, who played alongside Joe Gomez at Charlton.

Liverpool supporters have responded on Twitter to the news that their side are interested in making a move for the Villa defender – and they seem to be “all for it”. One fan thinks a fee between £3omillion and £40million is “doable”.
