Stefan de Vrij

Lazio defender Stefan de Vrij has been in impressive form in the heart of the Serie A side’s backline in recent years, and as such could be the ideal centre-back partner for compatriot van Dijk at Anfield.

The 25-year-old has made 85 appearances for the Italian giants and played a key part in their ascent to fifth place in the top-flight last season, and did look set to pen a new deal at the club earlier this week.

However, reports suggest that contract negotiations have stalled, which is surely going to be of interest to Reds chief Klopp, who has seen his current defence concede 17 goals in just 12 Premier League games this term.

Landing de Vrij could aid them in bringing that number down to a level needed to compete for the title.
