Lovren left the club this summer after six years of service, joining Russian side Zenit St Petersburg in a £10.9million deal (via BBC Sport). Liverpool have identified their defence as an area in need of strengthening and have already welcomed left-back Kostas Tsimikas to the club, who marks their first signing of the window.
With Frank Lampard similarly looking to revamp his backline, Rudiger could be leaving Stamford Bridge. Some Liverpool fans are on board with the idea of bringing the German to Merseyside to flesh out their defensive options. Here is the selection of the Liverpool faithful reactions.
