Thommo urges Liverpool to opt for defender Rama Leipzig Upamecano

Liverpool legend Phil Thompson has invited manager Jurgen Klopp to enroll on January 2.

Liverpool will be without central quarterback Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez for most of this season due to serious knee injuries.

Thompson told Liverpool-transfer-news-Phil-Thompson-Dayot-Upamecano “> Daily Express: “Yes, I said Liverpool have to sign someone as soon as Van Dijk gets injured.

“I knew Fabinho could jump in, I saw him play, and as a defender you see people’s consciousness.

“I look at the mistakes you make as a defender and his mistakes are rare, that makes him a good player in the back.

“But I think he’s a very good midfielder, one of the best in Europe, so we need another center forward, we really need him.”

He also said, “I think Klopp and Michael Edwards are very smart in what they bring.

“They do a lot of attention on the players, and with attitude, and rightly so, I guess all the other clubs do it.

“But we’ve had a lot of success with our players in the recent past, so can we introduce one or two?

“Is there an older person who would cost you a small amount of money? But he would manage for a few years, with a two-year or three-year contract.

“Or are you advocating for a younger player who is at the top of his game and would cost a lot of money, and would expect to play every week? So that’s the balance in where you go for central defender.

“The boy from Leipzig we’re going to play against, Upamecano, I know he was a little sick at Old Trafford, but I like it.

“I guess it’s going to cost a lot and they want to play.”
