The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are surprisingly in a buoyant mood at this stage of the season, largely due to their successes this season.
It’s been a memorable period for Jurgen Klopp and his men thus far and yet the season still has potential to get even better. Liverpool have improved many fragilities to turn themselves into a strong, challenging set up and one that seems a few players away from being capable of winning the league.
One player who could certainly help that become reality given his recent rise to stardom is FC Schalke defender Thilo Kehrer, who is valued at £11.70 million on Transfermarkt. The 21-year-old has been a massive help in allowing Schalke to reach 2nd place in the Bundesliga, having previously struggled to surpass their long-term rivals Borussia Dortmund for many years.
Having played in 31 games so far this season, the German U21 star has the confidence and ability to progress even further as a player, something that should attract Liverpool greatly.
Although the signing of Virgil Van Dijk has greatly improved their backline, the big Dutchman is still in need of a quality partner and our punters believe that Thilo Kehrer could be that man. With the ability to play anywhere across the backline, not only is he a standout centre-back but he can also put in a shift in anywhere his team requires.
Liverpool’s attack is probably one of the best in world football right now but the rest of their team not as much. They are so close to returning to the top of English football and a smart addition such as the young German Kehrer would only improve Liverpool in the long run.
