Klopp moves for Rodgers old boy


QPR defender Steven Caulker has emerged as a shock loan target for the Reds as Jurgen Klopp seeks to bolster his squad in the midst of a defensive injury crisis.

Caulker is currently on loan at Southampton but has struggled for game time and his last appearance came in December when he was taken apart by Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi in Liverpool’s 6-1 win at St Mary’s in the Capital One Cup.

For a deal to happen Southampton would have to terminate his season long loan deal and QPR would then have to accept an offer from the Reds.

Klopp is short handed in the centre of defence with Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren both sidelined with hamstring injuries and youngster Joe Gomez ruled out for the season with an ACL. While Mamadou Sakho is expected to return against Arsenal on Wednesday night after missing the previous two games, he has missed a lot of time with various injuries since joining the club in the summer of 2013 and his availability cannot be relied upon.
 
Should anything happen to Sakho that would leave Kolo Toure and Tiago Ilori as the only fit centre backs at the club and Klopp has been desperately looking for re-enforcements ever since Lovren was injured at Stoke.

Dortmund's Neven Subotic and Schalke's Joel Matip were both heavily linked but their clubs have seemingly proved reluctant to do business in January and Klopp has now been forced to turn his attentions to 24 year old Caulker, who has been capped once by England.

Caulker has frequently been linked with a move to Merseyside over recent years having worked with former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers when he was at Swansea. Rodgers was understood to be a big fan of the former Spurs defender but that interest never materialised into a serious offer and Caulker moved on to Cardiff where he was relegated, before joining QPR the following summer and once again being relegated. Perhaps Southampton want to cut their losses now in case he bags an unwanted hat-trick?

Talented young player who lost his way somewhat.  Seems to fit the FSG MO.  I'm sure there'll be a buy clause in their somewhere

Big unit and he can head a ball, but this will be his 5th club in 4 years.

I hope they have done some research on his character. If half of the stuff is true he will be sent back to Southampton by March.

Klopp a few months back.

“If you are full of motivation as a player, if you are full of concentration, full of readiness and passion as a player, I’m not hard. I am open arms and give you a last kick, maybe!” Klopp said.
“If you are not, of course [I am hard], but only because to work with players who don’t understand the professional part of this life, it is a little bit of a waste of time. If they are very young, I can help of course, I can talk about this, give you one chance, two chance, three.
“Five [chances] if you are of another age and some other managers have tried it before, then it’s a waste of time.

This is easily the most disturbing thread title I've ever seen on here.

Could've been worse, it could've been "Klopp plugs hole in back line with Rodgers' old boy".

Not too fussed either way really, it's just a loan, needless to say expectations will be low.

Desperately need new blood in all departments to give us more options

It's probably worth remembering that our so-called transfer commitee is still in place.

A quick quality check for a player should be if Rodgers rated him, stay the fuck away.  Never seen a manager with a worse eye for a player.

 

Wouldn't be totally surprised if there was dodgy deals during his time at Liverpool.  Would actually be more realistic then him thinking the shite he spent £300m on was anywhere near worth the money.

I realise we are desperate but this lad is dogshite...you don't get shipped about at such lowly clubs as he has been if you are any cop.

The thought of him up against the pace and movement of Arsenal tomorrow is the stuff of nightmares.

We maybe trying to raise money by selling one or two players and there simply isnt enough time to bring a decent CH in?
Needs must and all that I suppose.

Sturridge is injured and Coutinho hasn't had a great season thus far.

That's about the most sensible thing I've seen on here for a long time. It's like this instant herpes/clap/AIDS field test I'm trying to market in Manchester chav dives.
