Liverpool could be offered the chance to sign Real Madrid defender Eder Militao, according to the Sunday World, and their supporters have been reacting on Twitter.
The Reds take on Manchester United in the weekend’s big-game on Sunday and Jurgen Klopp is in desperate need of three points.
Liverpool haven’t won in three league games and have lost their place at the summit to the Red Devils
The reigning champions are having some rotten luck with injuries this season, particularly in defence.
Virgil van Dijk is out for the season, with Joe Gomez also nursing a long-term injury.
The other senior central defender, Joel Matip, is also struggling to be fit for this weekend’s contest.
That has seen the likes of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho slot in at centre-back.
Both have taken on the role with professionalism but Liverpool lose something from the middle of the park in that instance.
As a result, signing another central defender this month might not be a bad thing.
Militao would only be offered on loan and the short-term measure until Liverpool get some players back could be ideal.
He earns £104,000-a-week and is someone who could surely bring some balance back to Klopp’s team.
Here is what Liverpool fans are saying about the possibility of Militao joining on loan.

100% yes he was brilliant before he moved there, hasn’t really improved that much but he’s still a lot better than the options we have. Absolute no brainer of this is true. Get it done asap
