Liverpool scored regularly in the last Premier League campaign but did not spend a single penny to improve their back line in the summer transfer window. The Reds have kept just one clean sheet this season and needed attacking depth to recover from three defeats. News Deal done – Liverpool ready to agree £52m deal for Anfield star The Merseysiders need to strengthen their defense and Piero Hincapie’s name is back in the spotlight. According to Spanish source Fichajes, Liverpool have made progress in negotiations to sign Hincapie in the winter transfer window. The media mentioned that the Anfield club will take decisive steps to strengthen the back line in January, and the Ecuadorian international will be lured for 55 million euros. Last month, reputable German source Bild revealed that Jurgen Klopp wants to sign the 21-year-old South American, who is valued at €70m (£60.5m) by Bayer Leverkusen. Liverpool will begin their Europa League campaign tomorrow and so will Leverkusen, who are currently top of the Bundesliga under Reds legend Xabi Alonso. Hincapie was a key member of Germany’s squad when they finished sixth in the previous tournament, but he was sent off on the final day and missed the opening three games of the current season. Currently, Klopp’s central defense consists of Van Dijk, Konate, Matip and Gomez. Virgil and Matip are at their peak and Gomez and Konate have proven to be vulnerable. In this situation, should Liverpool bring in a new center in the winter? Should they pay £60.5m to finally land Piero Hincpie?
