Raphael Guerreiro: Liverpool bid for Lorient left-back

Liverpool have made a bid for Lorient left-back Raphael Guerreiro, according to the French club’s vice-president Alex Hayes.

Liverpool, who are also reported to be planning a £10million move for West Ham’s Reece Oxford, are widely expected to sign a new left-back this summer, with Alberto Moreno struggling in the position this season.

Now, having already secured the signings of Loris Karius, Joel Matip and Marko Grujic, the Reds have made their move for Guerreiro.

“No one wants to see Raphael leave, especially the president,” Hayes told Ouest France.

“He will only be transferred if a club makes an offer that we can’t refuse.

“For the moment four major foreign clubs, including [Borussia] Dortmund and Liverpool, have made an offer.

“The fourth one shouldn’t take too long to be made (officially) but for the moment none of them satisfy us.

“We’re calm. We don’t need to sell to balance the books.”

Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are also reported to be interested in the 22-year-old, who can also play on the left wing and is in Portugal’s provisional squad for the European Championship.

Guerreiro has made over 100 Ligue 1 appearances for Lorient since joining the club from Caen in 2013.
