Liverpool’s defensive problems have been well documented this season, and the fans in the Transfer Tavern are eager for Jurgen Klopp to find a solution. It’s clear that Dejan Lovren, in particular, is not good enough to start every week for the Reds, and so with the January transfer window fast approaching, a big name arrival is absolutely essential.
It’s not going to be easy to bring a top player in halfway through the season, but Klopp must try, and one player that might be perfect is Jonathan Tah – who is rated at £19.8 million by Transfer Markt.
Tah, currently playing for Bayer Leverkusen, has been making a name for himself in Europe over the last few years. He’s a regular with the German outfit, having cemented his place in the heart of the defence. At just 21-years-old, he has already amassed 64 league appearances for Leverkusen – including 15 starts this term- with his quality not in doubt. He has also already picked up 7 international caps.
A natural defender, Tah’s tackling, positioning and strength all combine fantastically to make him one of Europe’s finest young defenders. You don’t become a regular in a top European side without talent, and he has it in droves. What’s more, at just 21-years-old, and with so much developing still to do, there is no telling just how good he could be.
A big move, then, is surely in his future, and Liverpool would be wise to bring him in. The more he plays, the better he will become, and it would make sense for the Reds to invest in him now, and then they can reap the rewards for years to come. He would be the perfect player to build a faltering defence around – agreed?
