Liverpool should go for Koulibaly, insists Barnes

Liverpool is currently without a couple of their defenders and are looking to add a defender during the January transfer window.


Van Dijk





’s first choices for the center-back position has gone under knee surgery and are set to miss the next couple of months. Apparently,

Jurgen Klopp

is looking to sign a defender during the January transfer window. Upamecano from Leipzig and Schuurs from Ajax have been named as the options.

But Barnes believes that the only player which Liverpool would consider is

Kalidou Koulibaly

. He thinks convincing Napoli defender to join the Reds is easy.

The Reds legend has told BonusCodeBets:

“If Koulibaly comes, he’s a player that could play alongside Van Dijk when he returns so it would be easy to talk Koulibaly into joining Liverpool, unlike some other top players because he’s a person that if he comes would go straight into the first team and play every match.

“Aside from Koulibaly, I don't think there’s anyone out there that Liverpool would look to get in January.”

Barnes added:

“If Liverpool are unable to get anyone to improve the first team then why sign a new player?

“January is not always the best time to buy because all of the top players you want to come into your team are going to be in the Champions League still so it might be hard to convince them to come if they’re not going to be playing every week.

“If Liverpool are desperate and need somebody, they’ll get them in. But I don’t think Jurgen Klopp is a particular fan of buying in January.

“Obviously, the situation determines what happens come January if they’re top and not conceding too many goals maybe they don’t need to do that. In January you can spend a lot of money and not necessarily improve the squad.”
