According to the latest soccer transfer news, Jonathan Tah may sign with the Reds. The Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp reportedly has his eye on the Leverkusen centre-half. Tah will be a good fit for the Liverpool defense.
Contemporary soccer transfer news updates reveal that a central defender may be signed in January. When the transfer window opens, Jurgen Klopp will prioritize a central defender and then a number 9 signing. Centre-half Tah who currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen is being closely tracked by Klopp.
The latest soccer transfer news also reveals that Tah may be a big ticket signing this January. The Mirror reports that the Liverpool defense has been boosted by Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren. However, Klopp reportedly feels that a lot can be done to improve in this scenario. Tah has put in superlative performances post joining Bayer Leverkusen.
Tah played at Hamburg earlier and transferred to Leverkusen with a deal worth £7 million. This deal took place in the year 2015. Tah has also been capped twice for the German national team. He has earned praise from the legendary Rudi Voller. Voller currently works as the sporting director at Bayer Leverkusen.
What Voller Said
Voller has stated that “Jonathan belongs to a new generation of centre-backs who are very good footballers”. The Daily Star has also reported that Klopp is keen on signing a new central defender. However, a No.9 player is also on Klopp’s wish list for the January transfer window.
Daniel Sturridge will then face more competition for retaining his place with the Reds. Sturridge has not scored a single Premier League goal in the current season. Roberto Firmino has found favor with Klopp and Sturridge has been coming on sometimes from the bench.
Tah fits in perfectly with Jurgen Klopp’s plans and rumors are abuzz regarding him signing up with the Reds. He has four years remaining on his present contract.
