Real Betis defender Aissa Mandi is nearing a transfer to Liverpool.

The Algerian centre back notched 30 appearances for La Liga club Betis this season, and is soon to be on his way to Anfield according to reports.

Ex-Algeria international and TV pundit Hafid Derradji claims on Twitter that “Issa Mandi, Spain’s Betis player is close to signing for Liverpool FC. Little details prevent this so far.”

Betis have recently appointed former West Ham and Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini as their new manager, and the Chilean may well allow Mandi a move to the Premier League to bring in some funds for a squad reconstruction in Seville.

Following Dejan Lovren’s Liverpool exit to Zenit St Petersburg, it is likely Jurgen Klopp will move for a new centre back.
