"Joel Matip is out for a long time" Liverpool is exploring the possibility of signing Jonathan Tah Transfers

Liverpool, which restructured its forward lineup from last year to the beginning of this year, has rejuvenated its midfielders in one fell swoop over the summer period. Jordan Henderson and James Milner have left, and the club has acquired Alexis Mc Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai.

Besides midfielders, Liverpool also sought a left-handed center back. Although they missed out on Chelsea defender Levi Colwill, they continued to have candidates for defenders such as Goncalo Inácio and Lucas Beraldo.

However, with Joel Matip out for an extended period of time, the urgency of the situation is increasing. According to 90min, Liverpool feel they can make a deal to acquire Bayer Leverkusen defender Jonathan Tah this winter.

The lanky center back, who moved to Leverkusen from Hamburger SV in 2015, has also made 21 appearances for the German national team. He has been on the pitch for over “300” games for the club, and the 27-year-old has been a mainstay in the final lineup this season, making 20 appearances.

He is already recognized as one of the best in the Bundesliga, so it is no surprise that he is ready to leave Germany and move up to the Premier League. He is approaching the peak of his career and has the ability to compete in England, where physical battles are fierce.

However, with a contract that runs through June 2025, it is unlikely that he will quit his job at Leverkusen, the league leaders in the domestic league. And with a hefty transfer fee expected to be demanded, the chances of the German center back moving to Anfield are slim to none.

So, will Liverpool ever bring in a new center back this winter…?
