Liverpool could sign the heir to Van Dijk in "immense" £17m-rated target


Liverpool are reported to be eyeing potential reinforcements ahead of the January transfer window, as Jurgen Klopp weighs up his squad options in preparation for the second half of the 2023/24 campaign.

The Reds have started the season well, sitting third in the Premier League table just three points from the summit after 11 games played, a gradual improvement on last term’s disappointing fifth place finish.

Part of the reason for the Merseyside outfit’s success so far is the ease of the transition in their midfield, with a complete rebuild required in the summer following the departures of Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita.

Klopp selected Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch to replace the former Anfield stars, in moves that have prevailed to be an early success for the Reds in their bid to challenge at the top once more.

Despite the strength of the summer window, Liverpool are reportedly eyeing further additions in the January window, with defensive targets the next wave of refurbishments to pay attention to.

One player linked as a potential target to be eyed at Anfield in January is Sporting CP colossus Goncalo Ignacio, who is reported to be admired by the Reds by news outlets in Portugal.

As relayed by Sport Witness, Liverpool would have to pay a fee of €60m (£52.6m) to capture the defender’s signature, after the Premier League outfit sent scouts to watch the 22-year-old in action.

The impressive progression of the Portuguese centre-back makes Liverpool’s reported interest understandable, however he isn’t the only young defender being watched by Klopp’s side.

According to 90min, a host of Premier League clubs are admirers of 17-year-old Leny Yoro, who has prevailed as one of LOSC Lille’s favoured central defenders this season despite his young age.

The report names Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool as those 'aware' of the teenager's progression, with his current market value sitting at €20m (£17m), a figure that could significantly rise if his form continues in Ligue 1.
