Liverpool Urged To Sign France Star In January

Liverpool have been urged to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, after the injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

After Van Dijk underwent surgery on a knee injury recently, Gomez went under the knife this week after picking up an injury while training with England.

Former Reds defender Steve Nicol feels the club need to sign Upamecano if they want to stand a chance of defending their Premier League title.

“Oh my goodness, [Liverpool's title chances] drop a good 20, 25 per cent from where they were, without Van Dijk," he told EPSN FC.

“I think right now Liverpool absolutely, because of this injury, have to go out and spend a lot of money.

“Joe Gomez, at 23 years of age, has already had two major surgeries. That means the chances of it happening again rise.

“You're talking about percentages of Liverpool defending [the title], you talk about percentages of a player having another bad injury.

“So I think this forces them into it and they should go and get Upamecano.”
