The summer may have only just ended, but the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are already eager to see which players Jurgen Klopp is sounding out over a potential move in January…
The Reds had a fairly productive summer, but a few key gaps still remain in the squad, and Klopp must move quickly to solve those issues as soon as possible.
The defence is, unquestionably, a major area of concern for the club, and so for the fans in the Transfer Tavern, this needs to be a priority.
Fortunately, the German seemingly has that area covered, with a move for a defensive starlet being mooted for January. According to the Sun, Liverpool, alongside Everton, are keen on a move for Charlton defender Ezri Konsa. He has featured regularly for his club despite being just 19-years-old, and Klopp has clearly been impressed.
Significantly, it is said that the club are keen to emulate the success that Joe Gomez has had in the Premier League, with an expectation that he will be able to adjust just as well as his compatriot.
He broke into the Charlton first team last season, and has been a regular name on the team sheet this term, building a lot of excitement amongst the Charlton fans in the Transfer Tavern.
Ezri Konsa is clearly a top young player, but is he what Liverpool need right now?
They have a number of talented young defenders, and what they’ve been lacking is a bit of experienced quality.
A player in the ilk of Virgil van Dijk would be perfect, though nothing should be taken away from Konsa.
It’s a deal that the club would likely be able to complete, but they should move carefully and make a decision that is best for the team as a collective.
