The Sun claims that Jurgen Klopp wants to strengthen his defence in the January transfer window and has been impressed by the Dutchman’s performances this season.

The 25-year-old was signed in a £13 million deal from Celtic last year, while in August he signed a new six-year contract with the Saints after a strong first season at the club.

Klopp also reportedly has his eye on McQueen as a solution for his left-back area at Anfield.

The 21-year-old has made only three Premier League appearances and could be available on a free transfer next summer as his contract expires at the end of the season.

Klopp is currently playing James Milner at left-back, with Alberto Moreno having fallen out of favour.
