Legend claims £4.2m signing is Liverpool’s weakest player

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has claimed that Ragnar Klavan remains a weak link for Liverpool following their shaky start to the campaign.

The Reds have shipped 12 goals in the Premier League already this season – only Crystal Palace and West Ham United have conceded more.

Klavan has started just three times in the top flight for Liverpool this term, including in the 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City at the beginning of September.

Wright insists that the Estonia international has yet to show the quality required to hold down a place at Anfield.

“The defensive errors have been continuing,” he told BBC Sport. “Why hasn’t [Klopp] addressed the defensive problems? [Joel] Matip is OK but Klavan I’m not sure about.”

Klavan joined Liverpool from Augsburg on a three-year deal last summer, costing them around £4.2m to sign.
