Kris Ajer

Liverpool are interested in signing Kristoffer Ajer from Celtic in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Star.

It has been reported that Liverpool want to sign a central defender among other players this summer.

The report has claimed that Celtic centre-back is in manager Jurgen Klopp’s sights, with the Premier League champions taking a closer look at the Norway international, who can also play as a defensive midfielder.

Would Kristoffer Ajer be a good signing for Liverpool?

With Dejan Lovren having left earlier this summer, Liverpool could do with a new central defender in their squad.

Ajer is one of the best players in his position in the Scottish Premiership, and he has progressed a lot during his time at Celtic.

The 22-year-old is still very young and is developing as a footballer, but he is ready to take the next step in his career and move to a top club in the Premier League.

Playing alongside Virgil van Dijk and training under Klopp on a regular basis would only help Ajer become better.

However, with Celtic aiming to make it 10 Scottish Premiership titles in a row this season, they may not be willing to sell Ajer, unless, of course, Liverpool make a huge offer that simply cannot be turned down.
