Liverpool have conceded more goals than any other side in the top five, so Klopp could look to strengthen his defensive options in January.

One man he should be looking at is Bayer Leverkusen’s 20-year-old centre-back Jonathan Tah, who shot to prominence last year with the German side.

The German, who made his senior international debut against England in March, made 45 appearances in all competitions to help Leverkusen finish third in the Bundesliga last season, and in turn qualify for this season’s Champions League for the fourth year in a row.

Tah is a ball-playing defender who reads the game well and can pick out a pass, but he can also defend solidly, is aerially dominant, and strong in the tackle, which is everything you want from a centre-back.

Joel Matip arrived from the Bundesliga in the summer and has adapted well to life in England, and Klopp will hope that his defensive target can have a similar impact should he arrive in January.
