Liverpool not certain to sign centre-back

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is unsure whether the club will dip into the transfer market in January to sign a new centre-back.

The Premier League champions are facing a defensive crisis, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez already out for much of the rest of the season. And the situation has been compounded with Joel Matip suffering a string of injury niggles.

That has forced Klopp to move Fabinho back from his holding midfield role and he has been partnered with academy graduates like Rhys Williams and Nathaniel Phillips.

They have been linked with a string of names, with pundits and former players insisting it is vital that they bring in a quality reinforcement if they are to retain their title.

Klopp though insists that the financial uncertainty caused by the Covd-19 pandemic muddies the picture, and means that what might be a straightforward decision in normal times is less so now.
