Liverpool could be in market for new central defender in January

Jurgen Klopp and his recruitment team need to improve their defence.

Liverpool was in good shape when they invested an amount in the summer transfer window and they are now targeting the winter window. The Reds are keen to sign a central defender. They already had a setup of midfielder and it’s solved in the summer.

Liverpool are focused heavily on bringing in midfielders in the summer, and an additional defender could be their next priority.

The Reds signed Wataru Endo, Alexis Mac Allister, and Dominik Szoboszlai in the summer window. Meanwhile, Liverpool lost Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner.

Jurgen Klopp and his recruitment team got their best midfielders in the summer but now, they need to better their defence.

Journalist Dean Jones spoke to GIVEMESPORT, “In an ideal world, we would have six, seven, eight centre-halves and are covered for absolutely everything. Now we need to be lucky with injuries, there’s no doubt about it. I have no doubt about the quality of the boys we have. (Jarell) Quansah is a super talented player here as well. In this moment we are covered. It’s not dreamland where you can be prepared for every situation. We had to learn that in the past a couple of times. We will try to do our absolute best to have a squad in the next week where we can react to pretty much everything. Is that possible? We will see.”

The Merseyside club is interested in signing Chelsea defender Levi Colwill during the transfer window, but the Englishman eventually signed a new deal at the Blues. Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly is also in the plan. They would compete with Tottenham Hotspur, and Newcastle United in the January transfer window.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones added, “Yeah, I mean, there’s a possibility that Liverpool could join the race on that one. It’s a bit of a strange situation in the way that it kind of fizzled out at the end of the transfer window, and Tottenham were obviously the hottest link to him at that point. But when you consider what Liverpool might be needing in the January transfer window as they start to tweak the squad, it wouldn’t be a complete surprise at all if they were mentioned again in the Lloyd Kelly conversation.”
