Liverpool have been linked with a number of defenders in the last year or so. The lack of a quality central defender, well a world-class central defender, has hurt us a lot under Jurgen Klopp and it should be one position that we have to add to in the winter window.

While Virgil van Dijk and Stefan de Vrij are names that are still being linked with a move to Anfield, ESPN now reports that Ahmed Hegazi of West Bromwich Albion is a player we are keeping tabs on.

The 26-year-old Egyptian has been one of the best players for West Brom this season and is currently on loan from his parent club Al Ahly. The Baggies do have the option to sign Hegazi for a fee of €5million according to his loan deal but Liverpool and Leicester are out to sign the player on their own.

Another Egyptian Star At Anfield?

Mohamed Salah has been one of the best buys of the season, and certainly the best in the Premier League but adding another Egyptian player might not be the solution we need at the moment.

Hegazi is a good defender but is he better than Joel Matip or even Joe Gomez? That would be tough to answer, given that his West Brom team aren’t doing all that well and even under Tony Pulis, he didn’t consistently stand out as their best defender.

The 26-year-old needs to be more consistent in the Premier League before he can think about moving to a bigger club and maybe Liverpool is a climb too big for him.

Sure, he might be better than Dejan Lovren and would be a cheap option to have but it would make more sense to give chances to our youth players and help their development.

We have seen what Joe Gomez can do and playing him as a centre-back until we sign someone of quality makes more sense than moving for a stop-gap Hegazi. It still seems like Klopp will be looking to sign Van Dijk or De Vrij and get quality rather than make another risky signing in Hegazi.

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.
