Journalist reveals Liverpool’s ‘choice’ in centre-back search

Talks of Liverpool’s wish to land a central defender will not end until after the January transfer window as they are now dipped in injury crisis.

Dutch central defender Virgil Van Dijk is out of the season as a result of a knee injury while Joe Gomez will also be on the sideline for a couple of weeks after suffering an injury while on international duty.

Jurgen Klopp will have to replace both players and he is reportedly interested in signing self-sacrificing Semedo in January winter window.

Report of Jurgen Klopp’s interest in Semedo was made public by Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos, who made it known earlier this week and that seems to be a confirmed source as he highly regarded by Liverpool fans.

Giannis Chorianopoulos is known to have broken the news of Liverpool wanting Kostas Tsimikas who, of course, joined the Premier League champions 11 days after the journalist’s story.

With the pedigree earned from Kostas Tsimikas, there are possibilities that a deal for Semedo will work through and fans are more convinced about the story. They are positive that the player will be joining in the January transfer window.

Liverpool have been linked with several defenders but what is most assuring is that the former Borussia Dortmund boss has been given the backing by the Reds chiefs to engage in the winter window when it is opened but it is not known who he will be signing.

Red Bull Leipzig central defender Dayot Upamecano has been tipped to be the top target for the Reds team but with the latest development, we can only wait until the next transfer window to see who the team will be bringing in.

Jurgen Klopp already knows his choice and only waiting for the opening of the January winter transfer window, reports claim.
