Liverpool transfer targets compared as Hincapie, Colwill and Inacio deals are weighed up


Piero Hincapie, Levi Colwill and Goncalo Inacio are all reportedly targets for Liverpool as they look to splash out on a left-sided centre-half. 

It is no secret that Jurgen Klopp has been looking to add defensive reinforcements to his backline for some time now, with both Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk on the wrong side of 30 and Joe Gomez not seen as the long-term partner with Ibrahima Konate at Anfield.

20-year-old Jarell Quansah has also picked up minutes sporadically in the league this campaign on Merseyside as well as in cup competitions.

Still, it would seem as though Quansah would be preferred on the right side should he break into the starting XI in the coming years.


Defenders are required to have decent ball-playing abilities in the modern game, with building up from the back becoming imperative in most systems and Liverpool’s is no different.

They are without a naturally left-footed centre-half that can bring the ball out of defence and build up from the back and this summer they will aim to change that with the acquisition of one of these players…

Piero Hincapie
Currently a key cog in the only remaining team unbeaten in all competitions in Europe’s top five leagues, Piero Hincapie has starred for Bayer Leverkusen this campaign as Xabi Alonso’s side aim to end Bayern Munich’s 11-year title-winning streak.

Hincapie joined Leverkusen from Argentinian side Talleres in 2021 for around £5million and has since gone on to make 95 appearances in all competitions for the German side, as well as over 30 appearances for his country.

He represented Ecuador in the Qatar World Cup, where he played every minute of their group-stage games as they finished third, failing to progress.

At just 22 years old, the Ecuadorian has adapted to life in Europe seamlessly and is proving his worth under one of Europe’s brightest coaches.

He is quick, reads the game well, is very aggressive and is an excellent dribbler, which is vital for breaking through a high press, which in the Premier League is becoming increasingly regular as teams look to play on the front foot.
