England defender Marc Guehi joined Crystal Palace from Chelsea in the summer of 2021.

Liverpool will attempt to build from the exit of manager Jurgen Klopp in the summer by signing Crystal Palace and England defender Marc Guehi. The Eagles centre-back is a man in demand with Arsenal and sworn rivals Tottenham also both keeping close tabs on him. 

Earlier today, the Telegraph reported that Liverpool 'could face a fight with rivals Man United' to acquire him should Dan Ashworth join the Red Devils and now LondonWorld sources have confirmed the defender is high on the list of potential signings at Anfield this summer.

Last October, LondonWorld reported that Guehi was high on the list of Manchester United transfer targets and interest in him has not waned with defenders of his quality high in demand in the top half of the league table. 

Joel Matip at Liverpool is 32 and will need replacing at some point while Harry Maguire was almost pushed out last summer at Manchester United before rescuing his career at Old Trafford this season. 

LondonWorld sources say Guehi who earns £50k-a-week is happy at Palace at the moment but with just two years left on his deal in south London, this summer will be a pivotal one for the 23-year-old defender. 

The defender is currently out of action for about three weeks and when he returns will begin life under new manager Oliver Glasner who took over from veteran Roy Hodgson this week.

Glasner's immediate task as Palace boss will be to steer the team away from the relegation battle and secure Premier League football for another season. In the summer, he faces a battle to convince Eberechi EzeMichael Olise and Guehi to all snub interest elsewhere and stay in south London.
