With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez likely to be sidelined until the end of the season, calls for Liverpool to sign a new centre-back were never going to quieten in January.

Such has been the severity of Liverpool's defensive crisis this season, it is understandable why they are linked with new defenders with such persistence despite the club's claims that no-one will be signing in January.

Meanwhile, Takumi Minamino joined from sister club Red Bull Salzburg, while Sadio Mane also emerge from the Red Bull family in Austria.

Nearing the halfway point in the winter transfer window and, despite Jurgen Klopp's insistence that it was highly-unlikely that he would boost his squad this month, the Reds continue to be linked with a plethora of centre-backs.

Liverpool have done business with RB Leipzig before, afterall, signing Naby Keita in the summer of 2018, having agreed a transfer 12-months earlier.

Such a scenario has cost Liverpool from making January signings before with Rafa Benitez previously revealing the Reds were in negotiations to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Bayer Leverkusen in 2004/05, only for the Bundesliga club to change their stance when the two sides were drawn against each other in the round-of-16.

However, the cup-tied rule was scrapped ahead of the 2018/19 season, meaning despite helping Leipzig qualify for the Champions League knockout stages, Upamecano could hypothetically face former team-mates and help knock them out of the competition just weeks later should he move to Liverpool.
