Sergio Ramos Claim

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol believes Jurgen Klopp should target Dayot Upamecano to solve his defensive crisis.

But Nicol has warned against a move for Sergio Ramos.

I’m not quite sure why they asked, but ESPN wanted to know if Klopp could target the Real Madrid legend in January.

“I don’t wish to make this sound bad but it depends how desperate they are.,” Nicol said.

“Listen, if Virgil van Dijk has a setback and it’s going to take even longer, if Joe Gomez is struggling, you’d rather go for someone like Upamecano, at 21, who you’re going to have for a decade.

“It’s kind of a no-brainer.

“If you can’t get him, then you kind of start going down the list.

“Clearly, you want a younger player who is going to be there for some time. You really want to avoid stop-gaps, unless you’re in a real hole.

“So, listen, if they got Ramos it would only be for a couple of seasons. I think he’s on the wane a little.

“But it wouldn’t be the worst signing ever, he would do a job.”
