The one thing on Liverpool fans’ minds right now will be securing all three points against Southampton tonight in the Premier League, as slip-ups at this stage could prove very costly.
It’s safe to say that the Reds are enjoying arguably their best season under Jurgen Klopp with silverware still up for grabs in the Champions League and the Premier League. But, not everything has been perfect in the current campaign as there’re still a couple of areas that require improving in the summer transfer window.
Interestingly, it looks as if the Merseyside club may already have their eye on a possible summer addition, as according to Correio da Manha (via Liverpool Echo), Ruben Dias is a possible target for Liverpool.
The Portugal international has established himself as one of the hottest prospects in world football this season, so here are the potential consequences of Liverpool signing him…
JURGEN KLOPP SECURES FUTURE STAR
Ruben Dias has been a level above most of his teammates at Benfica in the current campaign as he delivers world-class performances on a consistent basis over in Portugal.
He’s already made great strides on the international side with Portugal and he’s proved his worth against a number of dangerous attackers in the Champions League, so he’d fit in well in the Premier League.
The crazy thing is that the central defender is only 21-years-old, so he has the potential to grow into a future star at Anfield if Liverpool manage to sign him in the summer months.
VIRGIL VAN DIJK GETS A NEW PARTNER
Virgil Van Dijk has certainly enjoyed playing alongside Joel Matip in the Premier League this season and they appear to have developed a strong bond, but the former Cameroon international isn’t the man fans want to see alongside the Dutchman for the long-term as he’s not exactly world-class.
Indeed, it’s safe to say that Liverpool’s defence would be complete if Klopp secures Dias as Van Dijk’s new partner as he’s a couple of levels above Matip and looks more than ready for the Premier League.
