Liverpool eyeing up Egyptian defender

Liverpool are considering a move for West Bromwich Albion loanee Ahmed Hegazi, according to ESPN.

The Egyptian defender has been in impressive form at the Hawthorns since his loan move from Al Ahly in the summer, attracting interest not only from Liverpool but also Leicester City.

It is no secret that Jurgen Klopp is in desperate need to plug Liverpool’s leaky defence, with Dejan Lovren looking shakier game by game, but West Brom have first option to sign Hegazi in the summer €5 million. If they pass on that option then a move to Anfield could be on the cards.
