Liverpool are reportedly interested in the signing of Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi as Klopp wants to solve his defensive crisis this month.

Jurgen Klopp has been battling to cope with the absence of Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk who have both been out of action after sustaining injuries.

The German is now planning to raid the Emirates stadium to sign Mustafi before the January 2020 transfer window closes.

Liverpool have been linked with a host of potential targets to come in and ease their issues at the back, such as Lille’s Sven Botman and RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano – though neither club are likely to sell during January.
