It’s safe to say that Liverpool are putting together a squad that is going to compete with City for the league next year.
Aside from a new goalkeeper or central defender, Liverpool have one of the best teams in Europe. The front three is absolutely devastating while the midfield got a facelift this summer with the arrivals of Fabinho and Naby Keita.
At the back, however, the Reds need to upgrade desperately. While the signing of Virgil Van Dijk improved Liverpool massively, Klopp needs to get the dominant centreback an adequate partner. Dejan Lovren has at times shown flashes that he might be ok for the team but overall, he just makes far too many mistakes.
Due to the Croatian’s form, Liverpool have been on the hunt for a new defender, and have been strongly linked with his international teammate Domagoj Vida. According to Fanatik, Liverpool have now submitted a second bid of £18 million for the Besiktas defender. He may be a solid defender but if Liverpool have any sense, they should consider signing one of these two defenders.
