Liverpool have had a rollercoaster ride of a season. We started well but the wheels came off after Christmas and an injury crisis is to blame. We are reportedly already working on our first signings of the summer; Liverpool need to tie up a deal for Ibrahima Konate ASAP or we could be gazumped.
Centre back needed
Liverpool have seen all of their senior centre backs sidelined this season.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were ruled out until the next campaign as early as November.
Joel Matip lasted until January before he too was sidelined.
Although Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies were brought in during the winter window there is a school of thought that there is more business to be done.
