Some Liverpool fans are calling on a summer deal for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The Crystal Palace right-back dazzled this afternoon as the Eagles lost 2-1 at Watford in an FA Cup quarter-final.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp acknowledged the 21-year-old's talent and promise in a pre-match press conference in January [YouTube], prior to facing Roy Hodgson's side.
He is one of the most exciting young players in the Premier League and here is how some fans of the Anfield club reacted to his display.
That’s actually a shout bro— Perez (@Perezinhio22) March 16, 2019
Wan-Bissaka for palace is an absolute talent for his age. Big side will sign him 100%— babo (@baboLFC) March 16, 2019
Do people really think Trent is better than wan-bissaka?? That lad is a MAJOR defender. Trent edges his going forward I think, but defensively he’s way ahead. Thoughts??— James Kelly (@jkjamo) March 16, 2019
Wan Bissaka is excellent defensively but has plenty to improve offensively, would say overall that Trent is a better player, but both huge talents.— CJ (@LiverpoolxFC) March 16, 2019
Wan Bissaka is too good at his age.— Glane (@Spartans62) March 16, 2019
wan bissaka is the real deal.— Keanu (@arialbIack) March 16, 2019
Being young, English and extremely talented, Wan-Bissaka seems destined to command a very big transfer fee at some point in the near future and the truth is that Klopp doesn't need him.
That is because the German manager already boasts a certain Trent Alexander-Arnold and spending tens of millions on a player who isn't good enough to displace the one they already have is senseless.
Alexander-Arnold, who's one year younger than the Palace ace, is one of the brightest young defenders in Europe and any money Liverpool spend this summer should be directed toward other areas.
