According to a recent report by the Guardian, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is facing a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury against Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend. The same report has also revealed that the English defender could be out of action for up to a month which has left the Reds short in numbers for the right-back position.
Jurgen Klopp currently has the likes of James Milner and Fabinho to fill in as a makeshift full-back down the right flank, but he could opt to bring in a fresh face during this window to strengthen his squad as they aim to end the 29-year wait for a Premier League title this season.
Here are three players for the Liverpool manager to consider during this ongoing transfer period.
The Napoli full-back has been a solid presence for Carlo Ancelotti’s side and will be a perfect replacement for the injured Alexander-Arnold. He is defensively sound and can also be a threat going forward which is exactly what Liverpool needs right now to maintain their lead over Manchester City in the title race.
The Crystal Palace full-back has caught the eye after putting in a number of outstanding displays under Roy Hodgson’s tutelage at Selhurst Park this season. The 21-year-old has featured in 24 matches for the Eagles this term and has two assists to his name across all competitions. He will not only be a good fit for Liverpool but would also provide healthy competition for Alexander-Arnold when he comes back from his knee injury in a few weeks time.
The Portuguese talent has been a revelation for Leicester City since his switch from FC Porto last summer. The 25-year-old is highly versatile as he can play in multiple positions across the pitch. He primarily features as the right-back but can be deployed on a more advanced role down the wide areas.
He is an exceptional prospect who would bring a lot of attacking potential to the right-back spot in Klopp’s first-team so the Reds should consider luring him to Anfield during this January transfer window.
