Liverpool face competition from Leicester to land a West Brom loan star, while Arsenal are closing on a deal for a big-name Lyon star, according to Wednesday’s papers.
LIVERPOOL TO BATTLE LEICESTER FOR WBA LOAN STAR
Liverpool are set to battle Leicester for West Brom loanee Ahmed Hegazi.
The central defender has impressed at the Hawthorns since arriving on loan from Al Ahly this summer and ESPN reports that Liverpool have been in talk’s with the player’s parent club.
The Reds are set to face competition for the 26-year-old, however, with Leicester also said to be keen on the player.
One big stumbling block for Jurgen Klopp’s men is that the Baggies have an option in place to sign Hegazi on a permanent deal for €5million.
