Liverpool is reportedly ready to make a bid of £10 million for a 22 year old Middlesbrough central defender. The 6′ 5″ defender is to be a replacement of Sami Hyypia, Liverpool’s veteran defender.

According to Mirror:

Liverpool are ready to raid the Riverside for David Wheater this summer if Middlesbrough go down.

An field chief Rafa Benitez is looking for a long-term replacement for veteran central defender Sami Hyypia and believes that England Under-21 stopper Wheater fits the mould.

Boro boss Gareth Southgate doesn’t want to sell the uncompromising Teessider but, with the club £93million in debt, relegation could force his hand.
