James Pearce reports on The Athletic, that Liverpool have ruled out the possibility of signing Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly.

21-year-old Kelly was the subject of a potential transfer to Liverpool last summer from Bristol City but that deal never took place and the defender ended up joining Bournemouth.

Now Bournemouth have been relegated from the Premier League and Liverpool are in the market for a left back, it had been suggested that the club could be in for Kelly again. But it is reported that it is highly unlikely because Liverpool’s sporting director, Michael Edwards, was upset with how Kelly’s agents conducted themselves last summer.

Liverpool continue to be linked with a move for Norwich’s Jamal Lewis as a potential backup to Andy Robertson. Lloyd Kelly would have been an ideal option too as he can play both left back and centre back but it woould be preferable to get in a specialist left back especially since so much of Liverpool’s game hinges on the full backs.
