Scouting For Klopp – Three Signings Liverpool Should Make To Push For The Title This Season

Liverpool haven’t won a league title ever since the dawn of the Premier League era back in 1992-93. They came ever so close in 2013-14 under Brendan Rodgers but eventually ended up finishing two points behind eventual winners Manchester City. However, in their first full season under manager Jurgen Klopp, the Reds are within a shot for their first title since their 1989-90 triumph.

Liverpool currently occupies the third place in the league, level on points with second-placed Tottenham and seven points behind leaders Chelsea. With close to half of the season left to be played, that difference is not impossible to scale, but Liverpool will need to reinforce some key areas of the squad if they are to be right up there come May.

With less than two weeks to go for the January transfer window to shut, we take a look at three players Liverpool should sign, to help them keep the push for the title on:

Jose Fonte

It is no secret that Liverpool defence has been struggling in recent weeks. Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan haven’t been exactly reliable at the centre of the backline for the Reds and Joel Matip’s return continues to be shrouded with doubts. With the race for the title and the top four places heating up, it is one area Klopp should look to improve on.

And Jose Fonte could be the right man for Liverpool to go for. The Southampton defender is wanting to move away from the St. Mary’s and handed in an official transfer request earlier in January. An experienced head, Fonte has been one of the best defenders in the English top division in recent years and had been in the same form for the Saints this term as well.

Fonte may be ageing, but Liverpool could definitely use the immense experience and the calmness that the Portuguese will bring to their backline and given their history of transfer dealings with Southampton and reported interest from Klopp, this deal could very well happen.
