LIVERPOOL have reportedly joined Tottenham in the race to sign Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo.

The Reds could be set for a defensive reshuffle this summer following Jurgen Klopp‘s departure.

Virgil van Dijk recently admitted that does not know if he will stay at Anfield beyond the transfer window.

He said: “That’s a big question. I don’t know. The club will have a big job on their hands. To replace not only the manager but the whole staff, there are so many things that will change.

“I’m very curious which direction that will go in but when that will be announced we will see our situation. I can’t say much about it.

“Obviously it will be the end of Jurgen Klopp’s era. I am very glad that I am still part of it. That is why I don’t like to speak about it. I am still part of it.”

Meanwhile, Joel Matip is in line to leave on a free transfer when his contract expires in June.

Saudi Pro League side Al Ettifaq are expected to make the 32-year-old an offer at the end of the season.

With the future of two key defenders now in doubt, Liverpool are set to seek reinforcements.

And according to the Evening Standard, Adarabioyo has emerged as a top target.

Fulham want to tie the defender down to a new deal

The 26-year-old’s Fulham contract expires this summer, meaning he could become available as a free agent.

However, the Cottagers are attempting to tie him down to a new contract in a bid to ward off interest from rival clubs.

Both Tottenham and AC Milan have also expressed an interest in signing him.

SunSport revealed in December that Adarabioyo told Fulham that he will leave on a free transfer when his contract expires.

However, manager Marco Silva has not given up hope that he will have a change of heart before the season ends.
