Our Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that next season can be a year to finally bring some silverware into the club under Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool’s defensive fragilities this season has been there for everyone to see, though with the arrival of Virgil Van Dijk in the winter window, next season Klopp will be looking for more of a settled back five. Indeed, many feel that’s all that is holding him back this season.
One of the main priorities for Klopp is to sort the goalkeeping situation out, without a doubt. This season, he has chopped and changed between Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet, a policy that hasn’t really helped anyone at all. This confusion at the back has probably aided towards the defensive nervousness, many of our regulars feel.
The resident Reds in the bar are ready to welcome Roma and Brazilian number one Alisson to the club in the summer, following reports of interest were registered in January. Indeed, his arrival would surely give the club their best backline in absolute years, perhaps since Rafa Benitez’s days in charge.
