Liverpool had a pretty good transfer window in which they could have made the necessary changes to their squad. Jurgen Klopp wants to solve problems in midfield and defense. However, they could only solve one of them.
Coach Jurgen Klopp wants to bring in a left-footed centre-back. Notably, Liverpool is the only top 6 club in the Premier League that does not own any such player.
In recent seasons, Klopp arranged Virgil van Dijk to take on this role, but over the years, the Dutch player could no longer ensure the necessary agility.
For that reason, Liverpool wants to accelerate the recruitment of a possible replacement for Van Dijk. According to sources from Football Insider, They are aiming at Ajax’s young star Jorrel Hato.
The 17-year-old midfielder emerged last season, after being promoted to the first team. Ajax fans see him as the next Matthijs de Ligt because of his defensive mindset and rapid progress.
Therefore, Liverpool plans to promote negotiations to recruit Hato in the summer transfer period of 2024.
