LFC have tabled a €10m offer for La Liga centre-back according to reports, as Klopp wants immediate Lovren replacement

Liverpool have submitted a €10m offer for Real Betis centre-back Aissa Mandi, according to Spanish outlet COPE .
It's not the greatest source in the world, especially when it comes to Anfield transfers, but Mandi was linked earlier in the campaign and it's very likely Liverpool will bring in a centre-half for that kind of money before the new season begins - given Dejan Lovren's €10.9m exit to Zenit in Russia.
We currently have three first-team central defensive options in Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, but the latter two, while excellent, are injury prone and it would be foolish not to secure a replacement.
Mandi is 28-years-old and an Algerian international - and known for his ability on the ball. He will arrive at Anfield in the knowledge he won't be a first-choice, which is the kind of option we need right now.
At EOTK, we'd perhaps prefer a younger player who can also play at left-back, but if Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team have decided on Mandi, we're ok with that too.
