Liverpool have been linked with Aston Villa defender Jordan Amavi in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool are interested in signing Jordan Amavi from Aston Villa in the summer transfer window, according to The Mirror (Transfer LIVE blog, 00:52, July 16, 2017).

According to the report, the Premier League club are only willing to sign the left-back on a loan deal due to concerns over a previous knee problem.

It has been reported that Spanish club Sevilla recently pulled out of a deal for the 23-year-old old after medics raised concern over the anterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered back in 2015.

Amavi is a good and talented young player, and although his time at Villa has not gone according to plan, there is no doubt that he is a superb footballer and can fulfil his potential in the coming years.

Liverpool need to sign an established left-back in the summer transfer window. James Milner did the job last season, but manager Jurgen Klopp cannot rely on the Englishman to it all over again in 2017-18; after all, the 31-year-old is a midfielder by trade.

Villa will play in the Championship next season and will be aiming to finish in the top six, while Liverpool will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title and progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League during the 2017-18 campaign.
