The Reds could do with help in the middle of the park, and according to TNT Sports claim, PSG star Leandro Paredes has emerged as an option.

Paredes, formerly of Roma and Zenit, has a contract until 2024, but reports claim he wants to leave Paris before the end of this window.

Klopp’s dig

Klopp has issued a small dig at Liverpool’s defenders, and perhaps Virgil van Dijk, in particular after Liverpool’s defeat to Manchester United.

Speaking about the game, Klopp detailed some ‘confusing’ defending, which likely related to van Dijk’s stand-offish attempt to stop United’s first goal.

“We caused them massive problems. We were unlucky in certain situations, especially around the set-piece that we didn’t score. That could have turned the game, hypothetical of course,” Klopp told ViaPlay.

“But we had a good second part of the first half, so we wanted to build on that and showed the boys [at half-time] a couple of situations where we played exactly in the spaces where United couldn’t even get [near] to us.

“I think there were really confusing defensive situations where nobody of them [United’s defenders] knew anymore really where [Liverpool’s attackers] were, but there were enough legs there so they could defend it. And we couldn’t score.”
