Liverpool have already conceded 18 goals in 14 Premier League games this season and that is the worst defensive record among the top eight teams.
The Reds need to sort out their defense and must secure the signing of a top quality defensive midfielder. One such player in the limelight is Inter Milan star Kondogbia.
The Merseysiders have been linked with the 23-year-old French midfielder for quite some time. Back in October, there were reports indicating that Liverpool moved forward to sign him on loan (via WebCalcio).
Now, if reports are anything to go by then Liverpool are clear to finally lure Kondogbia because the Nerazzurri have put him up for sale (Goal via La Gazzetta dello Sport).
The former Monaco star is a versatile talent who can effectively play in the central and defensive midfield.
This season, he has mainly warmed the bench for the Serie A side. He has only started 7 league games and finished 90 minutes in just 3.
As per the provided Goal link, Klopp is looking for midfield steel and now that the path has been cleared, Liverpool could sign the Les Bleus star in a deal worth 22 million euros ($24million) in winter or on initial loan deal until the end of the season with an option to buy for the mentioned sum.
Liverpool definitely need a strong midfielder who could provide cover in front of the back four and must act swiftly to sign Kondogbia.
