The 22-year-old could be heading for an English football show should Liverpool finalize move for his services as defense concerns surge at Anfield
Jurgen Klopp is determined to fill the space at his backline so as to have Fabinbo return to his natural position after seeing his three defenders sidelined.
Van Dijk is currently undergoing treatments in Dubai as it’s yet to be disclosed when he could be returning to the squad. Joe Gomez is also injured and yet to be assessed when he will return to the squad.
The severe blow came when Joe Matip was also injured, leaving Klopp with no other option than pulling Fabinho from the midfield to the backline.
According to Eurosport, Liverpool could be pushing on chances to bring in 22-year-old Maximilian Wober who is perceived fit to replace the injured players.
Wober hails from same hometown with David Alaba who has proven to be a great defender over at Bayern Munich and it’s reportedly likely Klopp is weighing on chances to bring in the former Ajax man.
With 8 appearances in the Austrian Bundesliga for Salzburg, Wober has made six UEFA Champions League appearances for his present side.
