The Liverpool fans are happy with the business to sign Fabinho and Naby Keita but they still await a real partner for Virgil Van Dijk as Dejan Lovren has proven to be too inconsistent.
The self-proclaimed “one of the best defenders in the world” Lovren has shown glimpses of his true ability during the World Cup leading Croatia to the World Cup final but his club form with the Reds have yet to reach those heights. One player who has been brilliant for club and country this season is Harry Maguire, a player that Liverpool should seriously look into signing. The £31.5 million rated defender was one of the stars for England as they reach the semi-finals of the World Cup and his form for Leicester was what earned him a call-up in the first place.
Maguire played every single minute of Premier League action for the Foxes, more than justifying his purchase from Hull City. The 25-year-old is rock-solid at the back but also loves to get forward with the ball to help build and support attacks, a real modern-day centre-back that could be a brilliant acquisition for Liverpool.
A partnership of Virgil Van Dijk and Harry Maguire would offer so much including pace, power, strength and passion. This centre-back pairing could cement their defensive woes of the past in order to allow the Reds to properly challenge for the Premier League title as well as domestic awards.
Liverpool, having got to the Champions League last season, are a few transfers away from being capable of building something special under Jurgen Klopp as the future is very exciting for sure. If they can land Maguire, it could be their best window in absolutely years.
