Liverpool, Spurs warned to increase bids for £26m star

Stuttgart “wouldn’t even open the door” unless they receive a bid of more than £26.6million for Liverpool and Tottenham target Benjamin Pavard.

Pavard has emerged as a target for a number of Premier League clubs, with the defender having established himself as one of Europe’s finest talents over the past few seasons.

The 21-year-old made his debut for Lille in January 2015, before joining Stuttgart in summer 2016.

A year in the German club’s reserve side helped him settle and he has used this season to establish himself in the first team.

The defender received his first international call-up last November, playing in the win over Wales and draw against Germany.

But Stuttgart have warned any potential suitors to dip deep into their pockets ahead of a possible summer move.

“We are the ideal club for him right now and he feels that,” Stuttgart sporting executive Michael Reschke told Bild.

“If, in the future, a club from Europe’s top 10 shows real interest, we’ll sit down. Benjamin and his agent are aware of it.

But, if this summer a club believes they can sign him for €30m, this club is profoundly wrong. We wouldn’t even open the door for such a talk.”
