Liverpool lead Arsenal in the pursuit of Sadio Mane’s teammate

Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool suffers central crisis

The 2020-21 season for Liverpool will be remembered by most as a time when Jordan Henderson teamed up with fellow midfielder Fabinho at the heart of Jurgen Klopp’s defense.

Season-ending injuries to Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk, as well as a significant injury to Joel Matip, left the Reds fighting for defenders all season. January eased the load from a staff point of view, with Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies joining the club, but the former flattered himself by cheating and the latter didn’t even get a chance to do so.

Clearly, Liverpool’s hierarchy has vowed not to let the same thing happen again, adding Ibrahim Konate to the squad ahead of the summer transfer window. However, they may not be about to stop there.

Another central targeted?

Now, according to the Daily Mail, Jurgen Klopp’s side is on the hunt for another defender. While this may not make sense on the surface, Matip’s injury-prone nature, combined with the fact that Van Dijk has just turned 30, means that in a few seasons the Merseyside club will be looking for a new rock in the field. heart of his defense, which in turn would need time to lie down.

According to the Mail, that man could be Olympiacos defender Pape Abou Cisse, and the 26-year-old impresses both in the Greek League and the Europa League today.

While Arsenal are believed to be tracking the Senegalese international, who plays alongside former gunner Sokratis at his club, it is Liverpool who have reportedly been “showing the greatest intention so far” in pursuing his signature.

With the African Cup of Nations this year, it seems unlikely that there will be a move in January, but could Cisse be one for the summer?
