Jurgen Klopp is well-aware of his team’s defensive frailties and is expected to make certain moves in the January transfer market in an attempt to bolster his backline and make a bolder claim for the Champions League places in the second part of the season.
The Reds have already been linked with a mega-money move for in-demand Southampton star Virgil van Dijk, who is also a target for Chelsea and Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp is therefore eyeing alternative solutions with Lazio defender Stefan De Vrij being highlighted as one of the top transfer targets for Liverpool.
According to reports coming from Tuttosport, Liverpool have already moved ahead with plans to sign the 25-year-old Dutch international who has emerged as one of most sought-after defenders in Serie A.
Liverpool will face tough competition for the signature of former Feyenoord man who is said to be eyed by the likes of Juventus and Barcelona.
