Liverpool obviously lacking depth in defense. The Reds will try to sign defenders during January transfer window.

Jose Enrique

, former

Liverpool

fullback believes that

Jurgen Klopp

will sign defenders during the winter transfer window. After the horrible incident that caused

Van Dijk

to almost miss the season, Klopp used

Fabinho

as a centre back but The Brazilian defensive midfielder also got injured.

The former Reds full-back told Stadium Astro: “For me, I’m not sure about names because there are so many coming out.

“For me, [Joe]

Gomez

is a top centre-back. He has everything. His improvement over the last few seasons, can you rely on him like you do with

Van Dijk

?

“Van Dijk, until this injury, has been playing every single game - even the cup games. Someone who is that important, you need someone like that.

“I believe Gomez and Van Dijk when they are fit, I don’t know who else can be better than them two together. I believe they should go for a younger player, and I think that’s what Liverpool will do.”

Enrique added on those that Liverpool could chase down: “They have been talking about

Upamecano

, [Kalidou]

Koulibaly

– he would cost 70-80 million.

“They need to sign someone because you need two players for every position, always. We have been really unlucky with injuries, but you need two players in these positions.

“Upamecano is a good player. There are players in La Liga, but they are not as good as Gomez. It’s difficult. There are a lot of players in Europe and I’m sure they will find someone.”
