Liverpool to make surprise swoop as links to Manchester United target grow

Jurgen Klopp is reportedly drawing up plans to make a defensive signing amid fears that Liverpool’s defensive injury issues could derail their bid for Premier League glory.

According to Daily Record journalist Duncan Castles, Klopp has asked Liverpool to make one transfer splurge in the January market to try and give his squad a timely boost and further their options.

Castles writes that Liverpool “do not want to spend heavily on the signing, and are said to be looking at a cheap and reliable individual who they can take on loan, as a free transfer or for a small fee”.
