Liverpool want Norwich City left-back and Tottenham Hotspur target Jamal Lewis

Brazil v New Zealand- FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019

It is understood that The Reds are seeing 22-year-old Lewis as a backup for Robertson, who joined Liverpool from relegated Hull City in 2017 for a mere $10 million.

The initial offer is said to be around half of what Norwich are looking for before they contemplate selling and will be confident of getting that as Lewis has three years left on his contract.

Liverpool FC have had a £10m bid for Jamal Lewis knocked back by Norwich City, according to a report in England.

Liverpool need competition for Robertson at left-back as James Milner is coming towards the end of his career and Klopp needs a reliable back-up if the Reds are to defend their title and compete in the cups next season.

Liverpool have also been linked with Bournemouth's Lloyd Kelly but it is claimed that Edwards doesn't want to work with the Stellar Football agency who represent him because of the way they handled our interest in the player when we tried to sign him from Bristol City a year ago.


Liverpool will need to return with a realistic offer for the Northern Irish worldwide for the Canaries to consider sanctioning the defender's exit in this transfer window.

Newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool are on the lookout for a left-back this summer, with Jurgen Klopp keen on bringing in a back-up for first-choice Andrew Robertson. It will be interesting to see if the club reaches Norwich's evaluation for Lewis who is valued at £20m.

Liverpool do not want to pay more than £10million for Lewis, while Norwich value him at considerably more than that. There's a lot of interest in quite a few Norwich players following their relegation. One thing that could help the deal would be if Yasser Larouchi was involved.

While Edwards is a shrewd negotiator, it remains to be seen whether he can agree a deal that does not involve the Premier League champions going well over their own valuation.
