Liverpool have already agreed the bargain of the summer if they go ahead with one transfer at the end of the season.
And it came about during the club’s scramble for a centre-back in January with Joel Matip joining Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez on the injury list.
Jurgen Klopp has gone through his worst period as Liverpool manager after losing six Anfield matches in a row – a feat that had never happened before.
It saw their title defence crumble with the aim now to get back into the top four of the Premier League.
With injuries piling up at on Merseyside, it has been a tough period for the champions – but back-to-back wins over RB Leipzig and Wolves have seen some normality resume.
And there could be further good news ahead of the summer transfer window in the shape of Ozan Kabak.
The Turkey international joined the Reds on deadline day in the winter from Schalke for an initial fee of £1m.
That can be made permanent at the end of the season for £18m – which would represent a mammoth bargain.
According to the CIES Football Observatory, the defender is worth between €30m-€40m (£25m-£34m).
Considering Liverpool could land the 20-year-old for much cheaper than that value indicates the club transfer chief Michael Edwards has struck gold again.
