Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels 5/1 to join Liverpool in the January transfer window
Competition: Premier League
Market: Mats Hummels to join Liverpool in January
Odds: 5/1 @ Betfair
With new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp frustrated with the side’s constant defensive deficiencies, he may look to his former side Borussia Dortmund for strong centre-back Mats Hummels to bolster the Reds’ backline in January.
Liverpool continue to concede goals all too easily, and Klopp has been left bemused how his defence make so many schoolboy errors every game. He initially played down the chance of dipping into the Dortmund squad for players, but may consider Hummels as the ideal influence to help the defence.
The German international, a World Cup winner, has been consistent for Dortmund, and may be open to renewing acquaintances with his former manager. BVB still look second-best to Bayern in the Bundesliga and the Liverpool project could attract him to the Premier League as a result.
Klopp led Dortmund to league titles and the Champions League final, and developed Hummels to become one of the best central defenders in the world in the past. He wants to repeat the feat at Liverpool, and as a result, Hummels is 5/1 to sign for the Reds this month.
