After 4 points from the first three games in the new Premier League season, Jurgen Klopp will not be too displeased with his team’s performance this campaign.
The manager has accumulated an exciting squad that has a good balance to it and though it is weak at certain places, Klopp is confident that he has enough mettle in his squad to get himself a place in the top-4 come the end of the season.
However, that has not stopped the manager’s search for transfer targets this summer.
Liverpool are definitely weak in a couple of areas with the defensive midfield are being the prime culprit but the full back spot is also something that needs a bit of strengthening before the end of the summer.
And it is now understood that Liverpool may be able to get their hands on a top class full back after all this summer.
According to reports from the Sun, Leicester City have failed to tie Christian Fuchs to a long term contract at the club and that Liverpool are put in high alert ahead of the deadline day.
The 30-year old title winning left back is an easy option for Klopp to release his problems in the left-back area. James Milner, a midfielder by trait is now being used as a make shift left back and though he has shown promise in that positions in the last few games, Liverpool need a specialist left-back if they are compete with the best this season.
This is why a move for Fuchs will be a season changing one.
The 30-year old will add immense experience to the relatively young back line for Liverpool and will also prove Alberto Moreno with a player to learn off of.
He will also free James Milner up from his makeshift role and will give Klopp another option in the midfield.
Though Leicester City managed to tie many of their top players to new targets, Fuchs is currently not happy with the terms of his new contract and Liverpool should definitely try and make a move for the experienced defender this summer.
His contract ends next season and Leicester City will also be happy to let him go if he decides on not signing a contract extension.
Do you think Liverpool can get Fuchs this summer?
