Liverpool are reportedly plotting an audacious bid to sign Rb Leipzig’s highly rated defender Dayot Upamecano. According to BIld, Liverpool will sign a defender this January after losing their most reliable centre back Virgil van Dijk to a season ending injury.
With Van Dijk ruled out for the rest of the season, Liverpool are struggling to keep Fabinho fit and patch up their other defender Jeol Matip who is hardly fit.
The Reds will now try to sign Leipzig’s potential world class defender for £40m this Janaury and hope, its accepted.
According to Sky Sports, Liverpool are interested in signing Schalke defender Ozan Kabak. The 20-year-old Turkish international is a Liverpool fan and he is open to joining the Reds this January.
Kabak will cost Liverpool just £20m to sign and convincing him to join Liverpool won’t be that difficult. He is fan of Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp
Sky Sports further reports that Liverpool are in talks with Napoli to sign their super defender Kalidou Koulibaly. But, his asking price have stalled talks between both clubs.
Napoli want £65m for the defender who turns 30 next month and Liverpool have no interest in paying such a ridiculous fee for a 30-year-old defender.
If Napoli reduce his price to a reasonable fee, Liverpool will surely submit a bid. Its a simple as that.
