Liverpool eyeing defensive reinforcements following Lovren injury

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted that he may need to dip into transfer market after losing Dejan Lovren to injury in the League Cup semi-final victory over Stoke City.

The Reds were already without Mamadou Sakho and Martin Skrtel before the game and lost Lovren to a hamstring strain in the first half of the 1-0 win at the Britannia Stadium.

The only remaining fit centre-half, Kolo Toure, was struggling with cramps by the end of the game prompting Klopp to indicate a new defender could be on the agenda this winter.

"In this moment with no centre-back fit I would say it is a situation where we have to think about going into the transfer market," Klopp said.

"Two weeks ago we had three centre-backs, that's a good situation, at the start of the season we had five, now we have none."
