Liverpool NOT planning centre-back signings in January

Liverpool will NOT be entering the market for a new centre-back in the upcoming winter transfer window, despite the serious injury blows that section of the squad has suffered, as David Ornstein of The Athletic reveals in his weekly column.

The Premier League champions have lost both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, who constitute manager Jurgen Klopp’s preferred centre-back partnership, for the major part of the season. Indeed, it remains to be seen if either of them will take to the pitch again in 2020/21. Options three and four, Joel Matip and converted midfielder Fabinho, have both had their fair share of injuries too, and it was expected that the Reds would dip into the market to try and plug the hole.

Names like Dayot Upamecano of RB Leipzig, Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli, David Alaba of Bayern Munich and Ozan Kabak of Schalke 04 have been mentioned the most, but Ornstein says Liverpool have no intention of moving for any of them this winter, though he admits that they may yet change their plans.
