- L’Equipe claim Liverpool have asked PSG about a loan move for Julian Draxler
- But Reds confused when we’re already very top heavy
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana currently not in the side, so why would we need another attacker?

Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp have been very interested in Julian Draxler in the past.
This much is fact, with PSG beating us to his signature in January 2017.
But suggestions in L’Equipe (translated by Sport Witness), say that Liverpool have enquired about taking the German international on loan this January.
Draxler has been featuring quite a lot for the French, but in an unfavoured midfield role due to Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani up top.
Liverpool fans though had very little time for the rumour on Twitter, asking why on earth we’re asking questions about attackers when our defence is so shaky.
We desperately need at least two new centre-backs, while many would claim a left-back is still a necessity as well.
Here’s some of the reaction to Liverpool’s being linked to an elite playmaker…
This explains just how badly we need a defender!
Would be phils replacement, loan to buy makes sense wouldn’t pay his wages on top of phils, sign when phil moves on?
