Liverpool supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have the right to be abundant in optimism ahead of their pre-season in preparation for next campaign with Jurgen Klopp at the helm.
The Reds have struggled to attract the big names that once graced the famous Anfield turf but that shouldn’t sway the Merseyside-based club from pursuing their top summer targets, and that is exactly what the manager will be doing.
One area of the pitch that constantly came under scrutiny last year was the team’s defence, which conceded a fairly unsurprising 42 goals in the Premier League – the second highest in the top-six, only fierce rivals Manchester United letting more in.
Fans by the bar are enthusiastic as the teams look ready to return to training in a few weeks time at the end of this month, however, one man who won’t be arriving at Liverpool this summer is centre-back Virgil van Dijk.
Bearing that in mind, here are two defenders Liverpool should consider making a move for in the upcoming weeks and months….Do you agree?
