‘A player that Jurgen Klopp would go after’ – Keown urges Liverpool to raid Southampton once again

Southampton must surely be sick of the sight of Liverpool, from a transfer rather than a playing perspective.

Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk, Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne have all made the move from the south coast outfit to Anfield.

Each has had varying degrees of success, and with the possible exception of Lambert all have done the job required of them whilst wearing the famous Red shirt.

Given their defensive woes this season, former Arsenal centre-back, Martin Keown, has suggested that Jurgen Klopp raid the Saints once more.

Though he’s currently injured, Jannik Vestergaard would represent a sound buy to ease Liverpool through their current crisis, according to Keown.

“I was looking at Vestergaard playing for Southampton, and I will say this on record. I have not seen a better central defender this season, and I looked at his contract situation,” he said to talkSPORT, cited by TeamTalk.

“I am not trying to cause a problem for Southampton, and I thought that maybe that would be a player that Jurgen Klopp would go after. He has been brilliant this season.”

There’s no suggestion that Southampton would be willing to let the towering six feet, six inch Vestergaard leave, however, if the Reds are in a position to put the right amount of money on the table, there’s every reason to believe a deal could happen.
