Liverpool are plotting an ambitious summer bid for Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng, according to reports.
The former Manchester City man is one of Brendan Rodgers’ lofty transfer targets, claims the Metro newspaper.
The Reds are certain to strengthen their shaky defence before the next campaign and are said to be looking at Boateng.
It seems highly unlikely that the move will materialise though. Aside from needing to convince the 25-year-old away from the European champions, they would have to come up with a huge offer to convince Bayern to sell a player who signed a three-year contract extension as recently as last December.
Given that he is a regular starter for the Bavarian giants, it is doubtful that will happen.
