Liverpool’s defensive worries are there for all to see – and may force Jurgen Klopp to act in the transfer market.

    After losing Dejan Lovren on Monday, they are still of course without Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

    That has, reportedly, forced them to make one of the cheekiest bids of the trasnfer window.

    Well, when you’re desperate you’ll sometimes do anything!

    But it’s fair to say Liverpool can forget about a loan for an England international.

    Klopp now has some decisions to make – and needs to make up his mind quickly.

    The Premier League rumour mill is always turning as everyone knows.

    Here’s the Liverpool stories to catch our eye…..

    James is the Tark of the town

    James Tarkowski is reportedly wanted to solve the Reds’ defensive issues.

    But Burnley aren’t playing ball – and want £50 million for the centre-back.

    The Sun say Liverpool have made an ambitious loan bid for the player but will be put off by the Clarets’ asking price.

    Is Barella on the wish-list?

    Liverpool are ready to enter the race for Nicolo Barella.

    Chelsea remain firm favourites to sign Cagliari’s 21-year-old central-midfielder.

    But TransferMarketWeb  claim Liverpool are one of a number of clubs who are keeping track of the situation.

    AC Milan, Napoli, Roma and Inter Milan are all also watching.

    Origi’s London link

    Divock Origi is being linked with West Ham .

    The striker has only played a bit part at Anfield this season and has 18 months to run on his contract.

    The Hammers are in the market for a striker and are said to be considering an offer.

    Jurgen Klopp isn’t keen to lose a striker – and won’t bring one in this January.
