Liverpool are in dire need of a defender. The Reds have no senior centre backs available and with the transfer deadline approaching there’s no margin for error. Plenty of names have been mooted. According to various reports, Liverpool are closing in on the £2m signing of Ben Davies.

What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Ben Davies hints that more serious business will be done in the summer.
