Liverpool ending Klavan nightmare is a great move by Klopp

Although the permanent transfer window is now closed for English clubs, foreign clubs still have the ability to make deals. 

Liverpool had been one of the busiest clubs in the transfer window this year and spent £163.98 million on transfers.

Chief among those was the signing of Brazilian goalkeeper, Alisson for £56.25 million who will replace the error-prone Loris Karius as the club’s new number one.

However, with that expenditure in mind, the club is now looking to sell some players in order to recover some of the money they’ve spent.

Danny Ings has already joined Southampton while Danny Ward joined Leicester City for a £12.6 million fee.

The next player who looks set to leave the club according to the BBC is defender Ragnar Klavan.

The Estonian international is apparently close to joining Serie A side Cagliari in a £2 million deal having spent two years at Liverpool.

The Breakdown

Klavan joined the club in 2016 from Augsburg but has since fallen down the pecking order at the club.

Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are all ahead of the defender, with Gomez the likely starter, a deal for Klavan seems like the right move for the club.

Since his arrival, the defender has never really shown any consistency or quality and realistically isn’t good enough for a potential title-winning side.

With the Estonian unlikely to accept a small role for the club, at 32, he needs to go in search of a club where he can play first-team football.
