Jurgen Klopp’s first full season in charge of Liverpool kicked off in typical heavy-metal fashion with a stunning 4-3 win over Arsenal.
The devastating attack and disastrous defending that were so prevalent in his early tenure were out in full force in equal measure at the Emirates Stadium.
Though the Reds in the Transfer Tavern are delighted about an opening three points, their shaky backline has caused them concern.
With that in mind, reports emanating out of Italy linking the Merseyside giants with a tough-tackler with Premier League experience have come much to their delight.
According to Corriere dello Sera, Klopp has made an offer for Inter Milan defensive midfielder Gary Medel.
The former Cardiff City man was named in the Copa America team of the tournament after helping Chile win a second on the spin, with Klopp understood to have been impressed.
To that end, the German is said to have tabled a bid for the 29-year old as he looks to add some steel to his backline.
Do Liverpool really need any more midfielders? Let us know below..
