The injury to Virgil van Dijk has dealt a significant blow to Liverpool
The Reds have already had a difficult season, and losing their star defender has raised concerns
The January transfer window, on the other hand, allows Liverpool to look for a replacement
According to Inter Live, the Reds could ‘immediately’ swoop for one of the game’s best defenders.
Milan Skriniar of Inter Milan is the player in question, and his contract with the club expires at the end of the season.
According to Inter Live via Sport Witness, the Serie A giants’may feel compelled’ to meet with Liverpool to ‘listen to their offer’ for the defender
Giuseppe Marotta, the Nerazzurri’s president, has already confirmed that the club has made the best possible offer to the Slovakia international
Without an extension, the January window will be the club’s final opportunity to profit from his sale and keep him from leaving for free next summer
According to the report, Liverpool could sign him this month for €40 million (approximately £34 million) if they decide to move quickly to replace Van Dijk
Can Liverpool stage another upset?
Liverpool are in a difficult situation, but they still have four other centre-backs to call on (Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez and Nathaniel Phillips)
Meanwhile, Inter must decide whether to lose their captain and one of the world’s best defenders in the middle of the season or for nothing in the summer
Liverpool has done well in recent window by seemingly appearing out of nowhere and securing deals for highly sought-after players
It was Luis Diaz a year ago. Darwin Nunez joined in the summer. Cody Gakpo arrived at Anfield this year
Skriniar, who has been described as “one of the best trackers” in the world as well as “one of the best free agents who could ever become available,” would be an equally significant signing for Liverpool
