Many Liverpool fans have urged their club to sign Samuel Umtiti from Barcelona in this summer transfer window, following a report that the La Liga champions are selling out ten players.
Umtiti was brilliant during his first two seasons at the Camp Nou but has received stiff competition from Clement Lenglet in the pecking order this term after suffering from a troublesome knee problem.
The 25-year-old was linked with Arsenal ahead of the summer, but several Liverpool supporters want their club to sign the Frenchman.
The centre-back has proved his ability over the last few years, and also played a significant role in France lifting the 2018 World Cup.

Umtiti has played 17 matches this season for Barcelona in all the competitions and has not been in best of his form after suffering from an injury.
He had been praised by many players when he joined Barcelona and is considered as one of the most expensive centre backs.
Umtiti made his senior debut for France at the Euro Cup 2016 where they reached the finals and two years later was part of the FIfa World Cup squad which won the world cup in Russia.
