Liverpool lost Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez to injury and, after scouring the market for a central defender, the Reds have ruled out all options and will finish the season with the squad they currently have.
Liverpool are going through one of their poorest runs in recent years. They are six points behind leaders Manchester United and have gone five games without a win in a row in the Premier League.
And although the team’s problems are in front of goal, the slump started a little earlier, with the defensive losses of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
As reported by some English media, such as ‘Daily Mail’, the ‘Reds’ looked for an alternative in the transfer market, but after evaluating some of the options they ended up discarding them all.
So, Anfield are beginning to take it for granted that they will finish the current season with the players they have at the moment, with the hope that both Van Dijk and Joe Gomez can reappear sooner rather than later.
