Walukiewicz Liverpool Man United Chelsea switch hyperlinks
Liverpool are reportedly one of the clubs interested in Cagliari center-back Sebastian Walukiewicz, along with Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.
The talented 20-year-old has shone in Serie A this season and looks like he has a great future in the game, with a move to a major European club that may be in store in the near future.
Liverpool could certainly use a strengthening of their defense after losing Virgil van Dijk to a potentially injury-related injury and they are one of the names Corriere dello Sport associates with Walukiewicz.
The Italian outlet also names Man Utd and Chelsea as candidates for the exciting young Polish international, but it’s clear he will be a key addition to Anfield right now.
Liverpool will face a major battle to keep their Premier League crown without Van Dijk while Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have also faced fitness issues this season.

United would certainly benefit from signing Walukiewicz as an upgrade for Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly as the Red Devils have not looked quite convincing in defense for a while.
Chelsea have improved this season after a very bad defensive record last season, but Walukiewicz makes sense as a target for the Blues as doubts remain about Antonio Rüdiger, Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma while Thiago Silva is 36 years old and is of legal age probably not a long-term option for the club.
