Jurgen Klopp concerned by defensive issues ahead of new season

Signings

The 25-year-old also attracted interest from Liverpool as the Merseysiders came close to signing Fekir in a £53m deal shortly before the World Cup begin in June but the proposed deal collapsed due to concerns over an old knee injury that was flagged up in the medical.

Fellow defenders Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan are struggling with hip and hamstring injuries respectively, while Croatia global Dejan Lovren only returned from his post-World Cup holiday on Monday.

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are the Reds' only confirmed fit and available senior centre-backs for Tuesday evening's final pre-season friendly against Torino.

Despite spending over £180m on four new players this summer, Jurgen Klopp suggested over the weekend that further signings may be possible at Liverpool. We have very good players, a great atmosphere. "I don't know how we will do it", Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

"The league will be hard", Klopp said.

The Reds are widely tipped to challenge for the Premier League title this season following their £160m transfer spree, in which they have signed Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri, Alisson and Naby Keita to bolster a squad that finished fourth in the league last season, while finishing as Champions League runners-up. "An all-round good performance for the first game, especially because I think everyone can imagine what happens inside a human being in a situation like that, playing the first game after all the things that were written about it and all that stuff".

"He was for a long time in his youth an outfield player [and] he must have been a very good outfield player as well because he's really good in that". I still remember the Burnley game [at Turf Moor in August 2016] when we lost 2-0 with 80 per cent possession.
