Liverpool performed brilliantly in 2016 but they have been poor since the turn of the year. Klopp needs to reinforce the squad this month to have any chance of winning the PL title this season.
The Reds lack quality depth in the team and that is costing them big time for now. On the other hand, even new signings have not improved things much, especially at the back.
Even after signing the likes of Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip, the defense has been shaky under the management of Klopp.
Moreover, the Reds signed Loris Karius and made him the first choice goalkeeper at Anfield. Unfortunately, the German goalie proved to be terrible and Mignolet was soon brought back to the first team.
To solve Liverpool’s goalkeeping conundrum, the former Borussia Dortmund boss is looking to sign another goalie next summer and now Burnley star Tom Heaton is in the limelight (The Sun).
The 30-year-old star signed a new deal with the Clarets last summer and has been brilliant for them this season. He has made 64 saves and kept 5 clean sheets in 20 league games for Sean Dyche’s side in the current campaign.
As per the provided Sun link, the likes of Everton and Manchester City are also interested in the former Manchester United goalie, who would cost over 15 million pounds ($19million).
In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Tom Heaton?
