Manchester United and Liverpool must reinforce their defense in the summer transfer window to have any chance of challenging for the Premier League title in the next campaign.
As far as the transfer rumors are concerned, the arch rivals are battling to sign Uruguayan international and Atletico Madrid star Jose Gimenez.
According to Spanish source Don Balon, Mourinho and Klopp are interested in signing the highly rated defender but would want significant reduction on the 45 million euros price tag.
Back in November, the Sun covered an exclusive report and claimed that the 22-year-old defender has a release clause of £54million in his current contract.
The young South American center half has not become a regular starter for Atletico Madrid yet but has shown that he is a quality player. He has featured in 22 games for the Spanish side this season, scored one goal and provided one assist as well.
Liverpool need a solid CB more than Manchester United. The Reds have conceded 40 PL goals (32 games) in the current campaign, whereas, the Red Devils have conceded 24 times (30 games).
We recently covered a report (via The Times) claiming that Klopp wants Virgil van Dijk as his priority signing. The Dutch international has been at the peak of his game this season with Southampton.
In your opinion, should the German manager sign Van Dijk or Gimenez?
