Mane Gets Big Role In Koulibaly January Transfer After Liverpool Defensive Crisis

Koulibaly January Transfer After Liverpool Defensive Crisis

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to ease his injury woe with the Reds' defence decimated in recent weeks and he’s prepared for a January raid for Kalidou Koulibaly.

According to The Mirror, a number of replacements are in Liverpool’s whishlist ahead of the January transfer window.

Among them is the Napoli star Koulibaly who Klopp is said to be a big fan of.

Senegal team-mate Sadio Mane is described as a potential asset in a deal, with Liverpool priced out of a move in the summer.

Dayot Upamecano is another defender being considered.

The Premier League champions reportedly share a good relationship with the German club's paymasters and Upamecano is said to have a £54million release clause.

That will drop to £36.5m in the summer, meaning a January switch may suit Liverpool's urgent need.

Another name floated for the Reds' January business is Schalke youngster Ozan Kabak.
