Liverpool Will Listen To Offers For Ben Davies

Despite only joining Liverpool in January, it looks like Ben Davies time at Liverpool could be up without even playing a game for the Reds.

Liverpool had a centre back crisis last season and in the January transfer window they wanted to rectify it and bring in a couple of fresh faces.

On deadline day, Liverpool signed two central defenders. One was Ozan Kabak on loan from German side Schalke and another was Ben Davies from Preston North End who Liverpool signed for £1.6million.

Ozan Kabak hit the ground running at Liverpool and helped the Reds gain Champions League football. Ben Davies, on the other hand, did not have as much luck in the side.

Davies didn't even manage to play one game for Liverpool and was rarely seen with the first team. 

He made the bench a few times but never got onto the pitch to make his debut. 

Despite Kabak playing quite well and winning over the fans,  Liverpool are not planning to activate his option to buy after signing Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.

With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip coming back from injury, Nat Phillips and Ibrahima Konate available at centre back too, it looks like Ben Davies will never be needed at Liverpool.

It now makes sense for Liverpool to cash-in on the 25-year-old and according to ESPN, Liverpool could listen to offers for Ben Davies. 

Before Liverpool signed Davies, there was solid interest from Celtic and it was reported by some Scottish journalists that the club and the player had a verbal agreement in place.

It's a shame that Davies never worked out but it did seem like a panic buy from the club and it always looked like he was going to be a last ditch option if Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams also picked up injuries.
