Don Hutchison says Liverpool get approached the January transfer for an “A-list centre-half,” the Reds strongly hope to achieve players like Dayot Upamecano and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Two prominent players are currently dealing with RB Leipzig and Napoli. Actually, they look for moves to Merseyside.

Jurgen Klopp is busy with analyzing the financial issues of the club. Also, long absence of some outstanding players is another issue. They are on the treatment table for their injuries including Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The former Liverpool midfielder told ESPN FC: “[Klopp will] come up with a game plan and he may give one of the rookie centre-halves a chance to stake a claim because it might dent their confidence if they see Jordan Henderson or James Milner go and play in their position.

“So he might give Nat Phillips a start, who's very, very good in the air, I think Rhys Williams is a little bit quicker over the ground, so he might play him [against Leicester] looking at the Jamie Vardy factor.

“But it's important that whoever plays, and I think Fabinho's going to be fit, but I think whoever fills this void in the short term tries to get Liverpool through the next few games, the next period, to try and get them to January.

 “Koulibaly is still at Napoli, who was valued at about £60m, so I think what it does is it really pushes Liverpool into the transfer market to go and buy an A-list centre-half, and when Joe Gomez is back and when Virgil van Dijk is back, they've still got that quality.
