Reigning Premier League champions Liverpool are reportedly interested in the signing of Olympiacos defender Ruben Semedo as a replacement for injured Virgil Dijk and Gomez.

The Anfield landlords are currently in a defensive crisis after Virgil Van Dijk sustained an injury and could be out for the rest of the season.

Joe Gomez who has also been impressive for Liverpool since breaking into the first team is also injured leaving manager Jurgen Klopp with no other choice than looking for replacements.

According to the report on UK Sun, Liverpool chiefs are ready to offer Ruben Semedo a five-year deal and they are expected to talk with his club's chiefs in January 2021.

Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams could yet be pressed into far more regular action this term than surely they or Klopp expected at Anfield in the Premier League.

Before joining Olympiakos, Ruben Semedo played for Villarreal and Sporting Lisbon and was impressive for these two giants.

He joined the Greek club last year and has so far played 32 games for the side scoring one goal so far as a defender.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Trent Alexander-Arnold will be out of action for at least four weeks due to the injury he sustained during Liverpool’s 1-1 clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Reports from England have it that the right-back will not be in action until early December as Liverpool’s injury list continues to pile up.

Recall that Virgil van Dijk is likely to be out for the remainder of the season and consequently, the Reds will now be playing without two of their key defenders.
