Liverpool considering shock swoop for ex-Watford defender Janmaat

Liverpool are considering a panic singing as the club struggles to contain its defensive injury crisis.

With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both sidelined for the foreseeable future and with midfielder Fabinho, who can cover in the position also unfit, Liverpool are desperate for reinforcements at the back and are said to consider Janmaat as a viable option.

Now TEAMtalk is reporting 31-year-old Daryl Janmaat, a former Watford defender is on the club’s radar.

The 31 years old has been plying his trade in England for the past six seasons and boasts experience at both Premier League and international level.

According to TeamTalk , Janmaat’s former Netherlands colleague Georginio Wijnaldum has put in a glowing recommendation to Liverpool bosses.

Wijnaldum has represented Holland alongside Janmaat, and the pair were also teammates at Newcastle, before the defender’s switch to Vicarage Road.

Janmaat only made 10 appearances in all competitions last season, but his versatility appeals to Liverpool as he can play at both right-back and as a centre-half.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold also ruled out of action for a few weeks with a calf injury, Janmaat could provide some much-needed cover in the short term.

Janmaat is fully fit and would be happy with a short term deal, but ideally wants a contract to the end of the season.He has been without a club since leaving Watford by mutual consent in October.
