Liverpool Told To Shell Out Eye-Popping £50m For Premier League Defender

Liverpool are aiming to solve their defensive crisis by signing James Tarkowski on loan.

Yes, the likes of Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez will get fit in due time but there is always uncertainty regarding the fitness issues of the above three.

The Dutchman, who is just 16 years old, became the youngest player to feature for Liverpool in the FA Cup after he replaced Dejan Lovren in the 2-1 defeat against Wolves on Monday.

However, it's unlikely that Liverpool would shell out £50m for his services, although while a loan move could be an outside option, given Burnley's precarious position in the table boss Sean Dyche would simply not let this happen.

Klopp gave an update on Gomez and Matip's injuries ahead of the game against Wolves: "Joe is getting better, it's getting better, but he's not yet involved". We have to see how the bone healing is, that's always how it is when something has broken, but from his movements it looks almost normal.

'But there are still a few days to go until we can have them in team training, until [Joel] is ready for contact, which for a centre-half is pretty important.

However, signing quality players on loan is a tough ask but Burnley could be tempted into a sale if the price was right.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner believes Ki-Jana Hoever has what it takes to be a top player.

The teenager impressed on his debut but a Premier League match against Brighton may be a step too far in his development this early in his career.
