Jurgen Klopp looks set to dip into the transfer window in an attempt to establish a squad capable of challenging for the Barclays Premier League and reaching the Championship league. This will be Jurgen Klopps best chance at developing his squad as his current team is made mainly of players he inherited from former boss Brenden Rodgers.
This has given him more than enough time to evaluate his current squad as he decides where to build and who to keep in order to progress. It seems at his time in Anfield Klopp has realized that Liverpool defences requires some shaking up.
Klopp is quoted as saying by Metro: “When you build up a team, you start with the defence – that’s how it is. “It keeps you in the game and gives you the opportunity to score once and win the game. “I’m never happy with conceding goals, to be honest.
Klopp has already added Schalke defender Joel Matip. The young defender confirmed a move in the January window that he will join Liverpool in the summer. Kolo Toure, a veteran brought in on a free transfer from Manchester City is not getting any younger and is not the type of player a team can build from.
Although Toure has remained professional and has done his part when called upon, a younger replacement is needed. Dejan Lovren has struggled to really get going after his big money move from Southampton although he has improved under Klopp.
Jurgen Klopp even dipped in the market to loan in Steven Caulker from Queens Park Rangers in January to show how he is not satisfied with this back four. With Mamadou Sakho out on a ban, the defence will require more reinforcements. Although no other names have been mentioned, be sure to expect new and improved defensive reinforcements.
