Liverpool fans react to news they could sign Jamaal Lascelles this summer – VERY interesting

It was reported by the Independent yesterday that Liverpool had made a move for Jamaal Lascelles one of their ‘top priorities’ this summer, and it appears that Liverpool fans are VERY keen on the idea of signing him.

The skipper has been a sensation all season, developing as a player and captain under Rafa Benitez’s guidance – and it seems the influence of the latter has left Liverpool fans pretty impressed.

Here’s what they’ve had to say on Twitter in reaction to yesterday’s rumour, suggesting they’d be absolutely delighted to see the England hopeful sign this summer:

@Tino_LFC “Where are all these Jamaal Lascelles rumours coming from! Would be a decent signing for us imo

@LFCjay “Personally think should be all over Jamal Lascelles. He’s one of the few players this season that’s managed with the expectation put on him from the fans/manager & you can see he has all the qualities to succeed. I could definitely see him improving under Klopp.”

@Thatrexguy “Lascelles is a great player. His situational awareness, ability to create from deep & strong presence in both boxes is understandably attractive for Klopp.

@mobyhaque1 – “Really loving the Jamaal Lascelles a target for link. Not too many players are given the Captain’s armband at 22. That by Rafa too. Big voice in the dressing room. Played through pain for last 4 months of 2016-17 campaign after his double hernia operation. Passion+heart”

@jayjaygormley – “BIG fan of lascelles! Followed him since his Forest days. Hope the rumours are true that were looking at him. Could be another gem like Robertson if you ask me

@BenWebbLFC “Jamaal Lascelles feels like another player that could prove to be a bargain under Klopp’s guidance. Would be happy if he signed.”

@Seanlfcd “if we sign lascelles, i guarantee one of the reasons, albeit not a massive one, is the pace he showed to catch up with salah for that penalty that wasnt awarded in injury time at Anfield. Klopp probably wants a mobile CB next to Virgil to complete the set”

It certainly seems as though they’d love to see him at Anfield, with me finding nothing but praise from Liverpool fans on social media following claims they could look to sign him.

Don’t bank on Benitez doing you a favour though Liverpool fans. Lascelles’ influence at NUFC is priceless and, if we were to ever entertain letting him go (which we shouldn’t), he’d not come cheap.
