Liverpool set to beat Manchester United, Arsenal, Everton and Juventus in the race for highly-rated Greek defender
Liverpool must strengthen their defense to challenge the best of teams next season. The Reds have proved to be brilliant up front but without a solid back line, Klopp can forget about winning any title.
Recent reports have suggested that the Merseysiders are linked with Greek international and Roma defender Kostas Manolas.
Earlier this month, Mirror claimed that Klopp’s scout were impressed by the performances of the center half and Liverpool are keen on securing his signature this summer.

The former Olympiacos star is one of the best central defenders around and Liverpool must sign him to solve their defensive conundrum.
Brilliant tackler and strong in the air, Manolas knows how to command the back line and he is the leader that Klopp needs. This season, he has featured in 35 games for the Giallorossi.
Manolas’ current contract with Roma will expire in 2019 and the Italian giants rate him around £52million (The Sun). Not to forget, Liverpool are also interested in another top defender in the form of Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk.
