A former Red has advised Jurgen Klopp to bring in a man who has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence in the Bundesliga over the last few years
Dayot Upamecano is capable of solving Liverpool‘s defensive injury crisis, according to Peter Crouch, who has described the RB Leipzig star as “one of the best in Europe”.
Liverpool’s defence of the Premier League title has not gone as smoothly as would have hoped so far, with Jurgen Klopp’s men currently in the middle of a five-match winless run.
That streak has seen the Reds slip to fifth in the top-flight standings, seven points behind leaders Manchester City after 19 fixtures.
Injuries to key personnel at the back have forced Klopp to shuffle his pack, with midfield duo Fabinho and Jordan Henderson taking up unfamiliar roles in the heart of the defence.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez have missed the majority of the campaign due to knee ligament damage, and no return date for either man has been set as of yet, while Joel Matip has also dealt with a string of fitness issues.
