Report: Klopp pushing for Liverpool to sign 23-year-old Serie A star

Liverpool fans are staring at the transfer news anxiously awaiting reports of a signing. The Reds are down to an incredibly makeshift back four having lost their three centre backs. The club keep insisting they won’t be doing any business in the January window, fans are hoping otherwise. According to reports in Italy, Jürgen Klopp is pushing for Liverpool to sign Gleison Bremer.

Liverpool need a centre back

We all had a sneaking suspicion didn’t we.

When the Reds sold Dejan Lovren without replacing him over the summer we all had that sneaking suspicion that it could come back to bite us.

By October it had bitten us on a Jaws Director’s Cut With Commentary scale.

Joe Gomez was unlucky to be ruled out by a knee problem of his own sustained in England training.

Joel Matip has since been sidelined by a muscle issue.

Fabinho is now the most senior figure in the centre of defence, holding down the fort alongside Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips.

Liverpool linked with Gleison Bremer

The Reds are being linked with just about every centre back who can walk.

The injury crisis has been catnip for gossip columnists.

Tuttosport in Italy has claimed that Liverpool want Gleison Bremer from Torino.

The outlet has said that Jürgen Klopp is pushing for the signing of the 23-year-old.

Everton have also been linked with the centre back.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool may well be interested in Gleison Bremer.

We can’t put much stock in the claims that Jürgen Klopp is pushing for the signing, though.

There doesn’t appear to be any way to substantiate that claim.

We’re going to trust whatever call the club makes, they’ll sign the right man in the end.

We just hope that they make the signing sooner rather than later.
