Liverpool suffered a shocking defeat at the hands of Bournemouth yesterday and it is quite evident that the Reds need to step up and sign quality players in the winter window if they are to have any chance of winning the league title this season.
According to reports going on in the media (Express), Jurgen Klopp is looking to seal two deals worth 50 million pounds ($63.5million) by luring star players like Virgil van Dijk and Moussa Dembele in January.
Even after luring the likes of Karius, Matip and Klavan, Klopp has so far failed to solve Liverpool’s defensive dilemma and signing a top defender like Van Dijk should help big time.
The Southampton star has been in top form this season and has what it takes to reinforce the Reds’ back line.
As per the provided Express link, Man City are favorites to sign him but Klopp hopes that Virgil will be persuaded to move to Anfield. In recent seasons, Liverpool have lured Mane, Lovren, Lallana, Lambert and Clyne from the Saints.
As far as the strike-force is concerned, Dembele has been in top form for the Scottish side since moving from Fulham FC.
The young French striker has already scored 17 goals in 28 appearances and is wanted by more than a few top European clubs. Hence, it will not be easy for Liverpool to hire the services of Moussa in winter.
