The Reds lost Dejan Lovren after the season concluded, and they have not signed a replacement.
They were expected to make a move for a center back, but now it is not materializing.
Per the Liverpool Echo, Klopp is willing to use defensive midfielder Fabinho in central defense if injuries occur.
It is a risk, as the club has a small squad, and the season is extremely compact compared to previous campaigns.
But the Reds are prepared to go with what they have, rather than spend on players who they do not see as part of their long term plans.
