Evening Standard: Liverpool keeping close eye on Milan-linked defender

By Euan Burns -

Premier League side Liverpool are in the frame for Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, who has previously been linked with a move to AC Milan.

As has been reported by the Evening Standard in the United Kingdom, Liverpool want to sign a new defender in the summer transfer window and Adarabioyo is one of the names that they are looking at.

He has been very impressive for Fulham this season and at 26 years old, he is getting into the prime of his career.

He is a product of the Manchester City youth academy but was not able to get consistent game time in their first team.

It is no secret that any interest from Liverpool in a player that Milan also want makes a pursuit very complicated. They are a top Premier League side that can offer wages that Milan cannot match.

It is also an easier move from a personal standpoint for a player who is already settled in England and in the Premier League.

There is no suggestion that Milan are desperate to sign Adarabioyo, but he is one of the many names that could be pursued in the summer, having failed to sign a central defender in the January transfer window.
