Klopp told ‘it would be easy’ to talks Koulibaly into joining Liverpool

John Barnes claims it would be “easy to talk Kalidou Koulibaly into joining Liverpool” during the January transfer window

With the injuries to the likes of Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk this season for Liverpool, there has been alot of speculation in the media that Jurgen Klopp may spend his money on the coming transfer window and try to sign a new defender.

Koulibaly has been one player that has been linked with a move to Liverpool for months now, as he is regarded as one of the best, and would be interested in leaving Napoli to join a club like Liverpool in the coming windows.

Barnes remains wary of a window that is notoriously difficult to find value in, but even he concedes that additions may be required as the fitness issues mount and has claimed that Koulibaly would be talked into a move to Anfield.

The Reds legend has told BonusCodeBets: “If Koulibaly comes, he’s a player that could play alongside Van Dijk when he returns so it would be easy to talk Koulibaly into joining Liverpool, unlike some other top players because he’s a person that if he comes would go straight into the first team and play every match.

“Aside from Koulibaly, I don’t think there’s anyone out there that Liverpool would look to get in January.”

“If Liverpool are unable to get anyone to improve the first team then why sign a new player?

“January is not always the best time to buy because all of the top players you want to come into your team are going to be in the Champions League still so it might be hard to convince them to come if they’re not going to be playing every week.

“If Liverpool are desperate and need somebody, they’ll get them in. But I don’t think Jurgen Klopp is a particular fan of buying in January.

“Obviously, the situation determines what happens come January if they’re top and not conceding too many goals maybe they don’t need to do that. In January you can spend a lot of money and not necessarily improve the squad.”

He would be a world class signing, if Liverpool actually make a move
