Liverpool fans might find some good news here as we’ve been linked with a central defender. The Daily Mail claims we are tracking one of the rising defenders in the world. The report suggests that we want to sign Clement Lenglet, who plays as a central defender for Sevilla.

The 22-year-old Frenchman did play for Sevilla in our 3-3 draw against them in the Champions League. The defender has already played in 12 La Liga games and has scored a couple of goals but it is his ability to play the ball out from the back that would have caught the eye of a number of scouts.

Lenglet has a release clause which is rumoured to be around £28m, which is nothing compared to some of the prices being paid for top defenders in the Premier League. The Frenchman does have a lot to learn as centre-backs normally get to their best at 25-26 years of age. However, we need someone to solve our lack of quality in the heart of the defence.

Lenglet could be the player to replace Dejan Lovren, given that he can play on the left-hand side of the defence. He has also played as a left-back, which is a position we might also think of upgrading in the future.

The report claims that a number of top clubs such as Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping tabs on the Frenchman and his release clause would not be an issue for any of these clubs.

Another Risk To Be Taken By Jurgen Klopp?

Jurgen Klopp’s signings in defence haven’t really worked out. Well, most would argue that he has not really signed a lot of players but getting Lenglet would be a major call given that he is young and has not played in the Premier League till now.

The Frenchman might be one of the rising stars in Spanish football but he needs to be bedded into the Premier League and that is something we do not have time for at the moment.

Lenglet would be a good addition if we give him a year or so to grow, as Klopp seems more or less interested in signing Virgil van Dijk. That is one deal that might happen in the January window rather than the Sevilla man joining us.

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge had a great September for Liverpool. Even though the Reds were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea and lost to Napoli in the Champions League, Sturridge scored a couple of fantastic goals against his former employers.

His strike against the Blues at Stamford Bridge will be remembered for long. Liverpool looked to be out of the game but the Englishman came up with a majestic hit from outside the box in the final moments of the game.

The 29-year-old hasn’t started many games but is doing a great job off the bench. Sturridge was named as Liverpool’s player of the month for his performances in September.

The Englishman will have a huge role to play for us as the season progresses and several fans were pleased that the striker got his reward for some excellent games.

Harry Wilson

Wales defeated the Republic of Ireland in a UEFA Nations League game and they have Harry Wilson to thank.

The Liverpool youngster stepped up to score a brilliant free-kick for the away side in the 58th minute.

The 21-year-old was in the news earlier in the season when he smashed in a free-kick at Old Trafford. Manchester United were the opposition for Derby County on that evening and the Welshman’s goal helped the Championship side knock the Red Devils out of the Carabao Cup.

The 21-year-old is on loan at Derby and is one of the brightest youngsters at Anfield. The Welshman certainly got a lot of people talking with his effort against the Republic of Ireland and some fans believed the attacking midfielder has a great future ahead of him.

Alberto Moreno

Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno has just one start to his name this season and that came in the 2-1 loss against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup at Anfield.

The game will be remembered for an Eden Hazard wonder goal, where the Spaniard was taken to the cleaners by the Belgian.

Moreno has found it tough to reclaim his starting spot in the Liverpool team, with Andy Robertson putting in a number of great performances. The newly appointed Scottish captain is possibly the best left-back in the league and was with the national side during the international break.

The Spaniard was training with the other members of the squad at Melwood and a brilliant video of his was shared. Moreno can be seen doing a couple of quality flicks during training and that got a number of fans interested.

The left-back has been linked (h/t Mirror) with a move to Barcelona in the winter window, and some fans believed this video was a ploy to increase his value ahead of a possible sale.
