Seeing as Virgil is out for the season. If he returns earlier it would be a bonus, but we wont see him back to his old self until the start of next season. The question is, who do we buy? Because we have to sign a CB in January. Klopp surely has his targets ready for both January and next summer, and most of the targets arent available in this first window. Short term, long term or the best fit available. I've listed some potential players, but who would you go for? Dayot Upamecano: Fantastic player and would fit us like a glove. 40 mill release clause that will kick in next summer. We wont have a chance of getting him before that, but this is a player we really do need to sign going forward. Will be the best CB around in the future. 6"2. Ibrahima Konate: Another Leipzig player. Very talented and built for the Premier League. Has been out injured for almost a year now, so his transfer stock might have taken a hit. But is expected back soon. 6"4. Could maybe be worth a shot in January. Pau Torres: Playing extremely well for Villareal. Have all the qualities to be a top CB. 45 mill release clause. Can be signed in January. 6"3. Jose Gimenez: Top defender, but to expencive. Atletico would want the whole 111 mill £. Not worth it. Koulibaly: Top defender, but soon to be 30 years old. Napoli would want close to 100 mill £. Not worth it. Milan Skriniar: Came close to joining Spurs. Good player and could be available for 40-45 mill. Not sure how he would fit in with us mind. Rudiger: Chelsea want rid. Could probably be on a loan for the rest of the season. Could make sense if another target isnt available until next summer. Klopp would get the best out of him, and he has good pace and is very good one on one. That is essential in how we set up. Decent short term option. Umtiti: Seems to be out of favour at Barca and will be allowed to leave. We have been linked with a move in the media already. Not sure how good he is these days, but still only 26 and is left footed. Another possible short term loan? Wily Boly: Underrated defender who has been playing great for Wolves. 29 years old, but only has 6 months left on his contract come January. Will probably sign a new deal though. Tyron Mings: Has impressed greatly during the start of the season. Looks a top defender and has all but every quality attribute you would want. English premium though, so would cost a fucking fortune. Left footed aswell.
