Liverpool now ready to make January move for left-sided CB who'll only have 6 months on contract


Liverpool look set to turn to a familiar target Jurgen Klopp was eyeing over three years ago when January rolls around, according to a new report.

The Reds ended up having a good summer transfer window overall, even though some supporters still felt a new central defender was needed, as well as another out-and-out defensive midfielder, rather than just Wataru Endo in that role.

There is still no denying that Liverpool underwent an exciting rebuild in the middle of the park, however, with five players moving on and Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Ryan Gravenberch all coming in.

It has been a great start to the season for the Merseysiders, who have got ten points from four tough-looking Premier League games, with the exception of Bournemouth at home, and there is positivity in the air.

That's not to say that when the January transfer window rolls around the club won't look to make new acquisitions, though, especially at the back, should Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez continue to be unreliable in the injury department.

"Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly could be available for a cut-price fee in January with Liverpool ready to swoop for his services, sources have told Football Insider. The Merseysiders could be joined in the race for the 24-year-old by Tottenham – who are also keen to land him.

"Kelly is out of contract at Bournemouth in June 2024 and can therefore discuss a pre-contract agreement with foreign sides in January. But Premier League duo Liverpool and Tottenham are ready to battle to keep him in England and ensure Bournemouth recoup a fee for the centre-back."
