The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to sign a new defender in January. The Reds have struggled at the back so far this season, and with the January window now open, improvement is definitely needed. It won’t be easy, though, as January has often been a difficult time to land top-tier talent.
The fans in the pub have spent the last few weeks discussing potential signings, and whilst Virgil van Dijk is a popular name amongst our resident Reds, another name has also emerged: Jonathan Tah.
Liverpool haven’t been linked with the German defender, but it’s pretty clear from the perspective of our landlord that he would be a great fit. He’s been excelling in the Bundesliga for a while now, and so German manager Jurgen Klopp is sure to be aware of him. A 7-cap international, Tah has been a regular for Bayer Leverkusen in recent seasons, picking up regular caps and impressing at the back.
At 21-years-old, he’s still a young player, but with bags of experience, his quality is clear for all to see.
It’s a move that fans seem to be behind, too, with a whopping 90% of recently polled Liverpool supporters voting in favour of a deal, with the German clearly a popular name amongst the Anfield faithful.
Providing solid defending, aerial prowess and a decent amount of skill on the ball, Tah would be a great fit, and his age would mean that Liverpool can build their defence around him for years to come.
