Breaking News :Liverpool are ramping up their efforts to bring in new centre-back signings.



Liverpool is intensifying its pursuit of additional center-back acquisitions.

Ever since Joel Matip’s season-ending injury was announced a month ago, the Reds have been associated with an abundance of defenders. But as of now, more than half of the January transfer window has passed, Liverpool have maintained their ammo dry.However, as 90min indicates, that may all change shortly. They assert that the Reds are currently evaluating a number of players in preparation for two additions.


Unexpectedly, Levi Colwill is identified as an individual who remains relevant in that context. Liverpool are’still monitoring’ the 20-year-old’s predicament at Chelsea, according to information relayed by 90min and HITC yesterday.


In the interim, it has been reported that the Reds are interested in “one more established name and one player for the future.” Jonathan Tah of Bayer Leverkusen is the more well-known brand name mentioned here.In recent months, Liverpool have reportedly been “vigilantly observing Tah” as Leverkusen maintain an unblemished record across all competitions. Liverpool are reportedly “concrete” in their pursuit of the 27-year-old, despite reports that the German club were reticent to sell him.


Liverpool increase their interest in Tah

It has been reported that Liverpool has had a sustained interest in Tah. Discussions regarding him and the Reds that date back approximately seven years are documented in the online archives.


Within the last twelve months, they have made a return visit. Sky Sports reported in the summer of 2023 that Leverkusen might be able to transfer the German international for as little as £17 million.According to reports, Liverpool became intrigued by this development and allegedly initiated discussions with Tah.


Although that endeavor ultimately failed, it is understandable why the Reds would consider repurchasing him at this time. Tah has been instrumental as Leverkusen have topped the Bundesliga and are soaring under Xabi Alonso’s leadership.


Peter Bosz, a former manager, once remarked that Tah and Virgil van Dijk, the captain of Liverpool, engaged in “parallels” in their respective matches [Voetbal International]. This has been demonstrated by Alonso’s man this season.


Undoubtedly, both of the defenders exhibit dominance in the air. Fotmob positions Tah in the 79th percentile in the Bundesliga in terms of aerial duels won per 90 minutes this season. For the same metric, Van Dijk ranks in the 82nd percentile in the Premier League.


The duo of them would constitute an exceedingly formidable adversary.


Although we may not agree with the decision to replace Matip with an experienced player like Tah, we can appreciate the reasoning behind the move. Nevertheless, we believe that Liverpool should shift its focus to the future at this juncture. Observe to see what transpires from it.
