Aissa Mandi has become a summer target for Liverpool after the club sold Dejan Lovren to Zenit St Petersburg, reports claim.
The Reds secured their first Premier League title in 30 years and a couple of players have been let off the hook.
And according to BeinSports the deal is close, with the Reds having tabled a £9million bid for the Real Betis center-back.
The 28-year-old currently has a year left in his contract with the La Liga club but Betis are not ready to let go of the Algerian defender.
Mandi has made 141 appearances for the La Liga side since his 2016 move from Stade Reims and has remained an integral member of the Los Verdiblancos.
He has captained Betis on a couple of occasions and could offer credible competition for Joe Gomez and Joel Matip as to who partners Virgil van Dijk at the heart of defence.
Jurgen Klopp is also looking toward the direction of Norwich City left-back Jamal Lewis as strong competition for Andy Robertson.
The Reds had their left-back position handled by James Milner when Robertson is out inured and the German boss is hoping to solve the problem by signing a natural left-sided defender.
Lewis made 28 Premier League appearances last season and the Reds are understood to have made a £10m bid for the Englishman.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Dejan Lovren has left Liverpool to sign for Russian side Zenit St, Petersburg after spending six years at Anfield.
The 31-year-old signed a three-year deal for a fee in the region of £11million after helping the Reds win the Premier League and the Champions League in the previous season.
Lovren could only appear in Jurgen Klopp's side in ten league games at the just concluded 2019-20 season.
Legit.ng also reported that Adam Lallana has completed a move from Liverpool to another Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club on a free transfer.
The England striker's contract at Anfield ended after the completion of the 2019-20 campaign and the 32-year-old has agreed a three-year deal with the Seagulls.
Lallana who joined the Merseyside club in the summer of 2014 from Southampton will be returning to the south coast of England after undergoing a successful medical.
