Liverpool can use forgotten wonderkid to seal January deal for Pep Guardiola target

Liverpool are poised to dip into the January transfer market for defensive reinforcements, as Jurgen Klopp bids to keep the Reds at the top of the Premier League table.

In recent weeks the Merseyside club have been dealt setback after setback, losing central defender Joel Matip before Greek international Kostas Tsimikas was felled against Arsenal and suffered a broken collar bone.

Tsimikas, who was already filling in for the injured Andy Robertson, is now in need of being replaced.

Recent reports point to a plan to bring in exciting Fulham youngster Antonee Robinson, who has emerged as a leading target for a host of European clubs.

With his dyamic displays, relentless work-rate and blistering pace, Robinson has caught the eye of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, along with Liverpool chief Klopp.

And, according to 90min, Liverpool have ‘reached out’ to Fulham to discuss a move for Robinson in the upcoming transfer window.

The Reds are keen to learn the conditions of a deal and whether the United States international will be available if they do decide to act upon their interest.

Liverpool however hold a key advantage over rivals when it comes to the potential signing of Robinson, in the form of attacking midfielder Fabio Carvalho.

The Reds acquired the Portugal star in July of 2022, though opportunties fast became limited for the 21-year-old to claim a place in the Liverpool starting XI.

In the most recent summer transfer window, a deal was agreed to ship Carvalho out on loan to RB Leipzig; the Bundesliga side renowned for developing youth talent and providing big-game opportunity.

Robinson is said to be ‘open’ to joining Liverpool, despite signing a five-year contract with Fulham earlier this year following an impressive few seasons at Craven Cottage. As a result, the Reds will now begin ‘working on an agreement’ with Marco Silva’s side.

According to Transfermarkt, a fee in the region of £17million would test the resolve of Fulham in January, which is a fee not out of the grasp of Liverpool.

The Reds are keen to bring in at least one defender before the window ends to ensure that they have options heading into the latter stages of the season, with a left-sided centre-back also among the priorities following their failed pursuit of Chelsea star Levi Colwill in the summer transfer window.
