Liverpool: Klopp opposed to Premier League COVID break
Liverpool are expected to make some signings in the January transfer window with several members of their squad suffering injuries in the opening months of the season, most notably to centre-back pairing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez. But which players could they get for free to plug those holes in Jurgen Klopp’s side?
If it’s experience at the highest level and a cool head at the back, then look no further than ex-Real Madrid man Garay.
Liverpool need a new centre-back in January with all three of their current senior options out injured.
And Garay would certainly fill a gap, even if it was only till the end of the season.
The only down side is he’s 34 and probably not the sharpest any more.
Brazilian defender Uvini has spent the last three years pottering around in the Saudi league as his career appears to dwindle.
But a fair few years ago the 29-year-old was playing for Napoli and Brazil, and even joined Tottenham on loan in 2012.
Uvini seems to be the sort of centre-back that never really reached his full potential, but could he save his career with a move to Liverpool?
With Fabinho now filling in at centre-back every week, Liverpool have less numbers in midfield.
So if it’s a new creative man in the middle, then former Arsenal and West Ham man Wilshere could be a great option, given his wealth Premier League experience.
His injury history makes him a serious gamble, but there’s no denying his talent.
Arguably the biggest free agent on the market this winter is Spain striker Costa, who was recently released by Atletico Madrid.
The 32-year-old was a regular last season but slipped down the pecking order this term, leading to him asking to leave for more regular game time.
Costa’s goalscoring record at Chelsea was absolutely brilliant, and it’s no secret that he is a real handful for defenders.
