Liverpool Linked With Dortmund Defender

Liverpool have been linked with 23 year old Borussia Dortmund centre back, Matthias Ginter. The versatile German international defender can play across the centre of defence as well as doubling up as a right back and defensive midfielder.

Ginter is said to be considering his options after Dortmund agreed a deal with Bayer Leverkusen to sign defender, Ömer Toprak who will join the club in the summer.

The 23 year old is seen as a proactive defender who plays in a team that uses a similar type of pressing football to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.

His defensive numbers measure up to both Matip and Lovren but it’s on the ball where he excels. His pass completion rivals that of Jordan Henderson with an 87.2% passing accuracy over 90 minutes, averaging 78.6 passes per game.

He’s not afraid to get involved in attack where his pressing and passing capabilities would perfectly suit the Liverpool system under Klopp and he’s also good in the air.

It’s reported that Dortmund value the defender at £13m: a fee which would cover the cost of the incoming Ömer Toprak.

Liverpool could easily cover the cost of the transfer should the sale of outcast Mamadou Sahko go through during the summer window which looks very likely.

The defender has seen plenty of game time this season with 30 appearances across all competitions.
