Klopp Looks to Agree Versatile Star Signing to Finally Solve Liverpool Dilemma

Jurgen Klopp DortmundLiverpool signed central defenders like Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan from the Bundesliga to reinforce their back line in the summer transfer window.
The Reds were also looking to strengthen their left back position in the summer as well but failed to lure anyone. At the moment, James Milner, a natural central midfielder, plays as the first choice left back and Liverpool need a permanent solution for the position.
Jurgen Klopp is looking to sign a new left back to solve Liverpool’s ongoing dilemma and according to reports (The Sun), the German manager is chasing Ghanaian international and Anderlecht star Frank Acheampong.
The 23-year-old African star is a versatile talent who can play anywhere on left hand side of the field. Frank has mainly played in the left back position but he has been utilized effectively as a left midfielder/winger as well when needed.
This season, the Jupiler Pro League player has featured in 28 games for the Belgian side, scored one goal and provided five assists.
As per the provided Sun link, Acheampong is rated around 6 million pounds. He has made 12 senior appearances for the national side and is expected to play in the African Cup of Nations.
In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Frank Acheampong?

    Would seem a bit strange to buy somebody from Ghana when he will no doubt be heading off to the Africa Cup of Nations within days or weeks! Sule, the German CB is 6ft 5ins and is available. HE is the sort of player we want and need for one of our defensive problem areas, not another player few of us have ever heard of and who plays in a sub-standard league. We certainly need a new LB but I rarely look beyond Hector, of Cologne, when I think about that position. Top player, regular German international and playing in a top league. Ticks all of my boxes, that’s for sure . . . and who cares if he costs more than this Ghanaian? Quality costs money but the benefits are obvious.

    While the cost of a player is assuredly an important point, I would think that the fact that they would be losing another player for up to a month while they are away at the African Cup of Nations would factor as more important. They do not need to lose another key player.

      In the great scheme of things if a player signs for five years, or whatever, losing him for a month isn’t too great an issue IF, for the rest of the time he’s at the club, he’s worth it. Don’t know enough about this guy to comment either way – as with most LFC targets these days – but, as a general rule, it makes sense to steer clear of African players so we don’t lose three or four at the same time for a month apiece during vital parts of the season. Still think we need Sule and Hector more than anybody else and I’d keep my eyes on Pickford as he’s supposed to be a superb prospect and let’s be honest, we need a keeper!!!!!
