Merseyside outfit Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been told that he needs to reinforce his defence but Dutch international and Ajax Central defender Matthijs de Ligt should not be the focus.

Matthijs de Ligt has been on the wish list of a number of top clubs and the Reds team are not left out of it as he appears to be the focus for the German boss.

A former Liverpool striker John Aldridge is of the opinion that the focus for the former Borussia Dortmund boss should be investing in a new left-back as an option for Andy Robertson.

It seems confirmed that Liverpool will be parting ways with Alberto Moreno which makes Andy Robertson the only viable option for the position. It could be risky to have just him alone without a replacement.

The former striker argues that there may be a need to bring in Matthijs de Ligt to pair with Virgil Van Dijk in the defence but he is already being priced out by the huge demands from his camp.

He stressed that Jurgen Klopp must focus on the left-back to provide an option for Robertson, adding that a long-term injury for the player could cast spell to Liverpool’s season if not well handled.
