Liverpool could offer a more cash player deal to Norwich full-back Jamal Lewis. The Premier League champions are looking to bring the Northern Ireland international to Anfield this summer, with the aim of providing additional cover for Andy Robertson.

Lewis was one of the only bright lights in a dismal Norwich side who finished low on the stack, registering a record-breaking fifth Premier League relegation.His energy and eye for a center has seen him spotted by the Liverpool scouts and his stats are similar to a young Robertson at Hull.

The Reds caught up with the Scotland international in the summer of 2017 when the Tigers were relegated from the Premier League.

Targeting relegated players is a tactic they have also used before with Gini Wijnaldum (Newcastle) and Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke). All three were successful at Anfield.

At Larouci, Norwich would already have a replacement for Lewis who fits their recruiting model.

There was hope around Melwood that he could step in and be Robertson’s deputy, but he decided to move on instead.

The report also adds that Liverpool are considering two more defenses.

As Express Sport reported, Lloyd Kelly from Bournemouth is back on the agenda.

The club tried to sign him from Bristol City last summer before being left out of the deal.

Kelly can play both center-back and left-back, which are the two areas Liverpool want to add new faces.

Finally, Ben White is also being considered to replace Dejan Lovren.

The Croatian sealed a move to Zenit Saint Petersburg last week and the Reds now need to put more cover at center-back.

White was a standout figure on the Leeds side that won the championship, but he will return to his parent club Brighton this summer.
