The multiple physical problems that the defense of the Liverpool FC they can be a major setback for the ‘reds’ title aspirations. To the most that I know Virgil Van Dijk injury, in recent days we must add the discomfort and ailments of Joe Gómez, Fabinho, Alexander-Arnold y Matip, so the Merseyside club studies several free options on the market: known as “free agents”
The English press speaks of three names
The first one is Daryl Janmaat (31 years). The Dutch defender is currently without a team after breaking his bond with him Watford after four seasons. Experienced, he knows the Premier League well, having also played three years earlier in the Newcastle, where it coincided with the also tulip Wijnaldum. It has the plus of being able to perform the functions of central defender and right back.
The other favorite in the shortlist is Ezequiel Garay. The Argentine international, formerly of Rancing de Santander Y Benfica, among others, ended his contract a few months ago, thus putting an end to his stage as a che. In your favor, experience at the highest level. He also played in the Real Madrid and in the Zenit de San Petersburgo. Against him, injuries. Especially the last one. The ligaments in your right knee They said enough last February and he is still in the process of regaining his competition rhythm and his best level. With 34 years, It seems difficult that he can offer an immediate performance as Liverpool need.
The third in contention is Jozo Simunovic (26 years). The Croatian has been with Celtic Glasgow for several seasons, but his performance as a substitute for Van Dijk himself on the Scottish side has left much to be desired. Despite the interest of various clubs in the summer, injuries have closed several doors. It’s the youngest alternative to being the Liverpool signing, but the one with the least name.
