Liverpool are going to have to work hard at rebuilding the squad over the summer. The Reds have slid down the table this term due to an unprecedented injury crisis. The centre of defence will need sorting out. Liverpool should move for Niklas Sule if he is available for £30m as reported by The Athletic.
Centre backs needed
Liverpool saw every one of their senior centre backs injured this season.
Even the players tasked with playing out of position to cover the role have been injured.
The Reds’ senior defensive trio have all been sidelined until next season.
As a result many believe investment in the centre of defence is inevitable.

Despite bringing Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies in during the winter window there’s no telling just who will be at the club at the start of next season.
Niklas Sule situation
The centre of defence at Bayern Munich is also undergoing a transition.
Dayot Upamecano is being brought in from RB Leipzig and key players are staring at expiring contracts.
Niklas Sule’s deal has one more year left to run and The Athletic has reported that no move towards an extension has been made.
The outlet has also claimed that the defender’s uncertain situation could see him available for £30m, amid interest from Chelsea.
Liverpool should swoop for Niklas Sule
At 25-years-old the German defender is on the cusp of the prime of his career.
Liverpool should move for Niklas Sule if he is indeed available for just £30m.
The centre back has been a standout performer for Bayern Munich at times, earning a WhoScored rating of 7.27 for his Champions League performances this term.
We need to make a statement with our business in the heart of defence, Sule would improve our roster immeasurably and for a bargain fee.
