Liverpool set to sign Preston North End defender

Liverpool have made an approach to Preston North End for Ben Davies.

Jurgen Klopp has an injury crisis, with long term absentees Virgil van Dijk and Jow Gomez joined by Joel Matip and Fabinho this week.

With the transfer window closing on Monday the Reds have reportedly made a £2m bid for the 25-year-old defender, with Sepp van den Berg expected to join Preston on loan as part of the deal.
