Liverpool ‘will need to pay at least DOUBLE their £10m valuation of Norwich star Jamal Lewis’

Liverpool will need to pay at least double their £10million valuation of Norwich defender Jamal Lewis, according to reports.

The 22-year-old can play either left back or centre back meaning he would be able to provide cover for Andy Robertson as well as fill the gap left by Dejan Lovren’s departure to Zenit St Petersburg.

But The Telegraph report that the Canaries will demand Jurgen Klopp’s side pay at least £20m for the versatile youngster.

The defender is represented by the same company as Robertson but a deal will not be easy to negotiate.

The club rejected a £12m bid for Lewis from Crystal Palace in January and are said to be determined to only do business on their terms, despite suffering relegation to the Championship. 

Lewis played regularly for Daniel Farke’s side last season, making 33 appearances in all competitions and is expected to attract more offers from other clubs.

Norwich have experience in holding out for big transfer fees. They sold James Maddison to Leicester for £24m in 2018 and are likely to immediately turn down any offers of £10million.

The Canaries are braced to receive offers for several of their star players including Todd Cantwell, Max Aarons, Emi Buendia and Ben Godfrey. 

Leeds are thought to have been quoted a price of £25million for Buendia after the midfielder managed seven assists in the league last season.

Right back Aarons has been linked with a move to German champions Bayern Munich while Aston Villa are also said to be in the running.

But the club are not thought to be under any pressure to sell after being one of the lowest spenders in the top flight last season.
