Liverpool tried and failed to sign Virgil Van Dijk this past transfer window, so our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are crying out for Klopp to make signing a defender a priority in the next window
Liverpool ex-players and pundits have waded in about the defensive frailties the Reds have shown early on this season. While their attacking third looks well balanced and devastating, it’s the first third our punters believe will hold them back from achieving anything this season.
Disorganised and lacking leadership, especially at set pieces has been Liverpool’s downfall this year.
VVD would have been ideal to slot into the back four but with him coming back into the Southampton fold a move looks unlikely any time soon.
Maybe cashing in on Coutinho in January and using the money to fund a defensive rebuild would be Klopp’s best bet. Especially as this season there are more teams strengthening and seeing how neighbours Everton have gone big in August, the Reds won’t want to be left behind.
Our Landlord believes signing just one of these three defenders will make a huge difference to Liverpool’s rocky ship.
