- Both centre-backs were linked with a move to Anfield in the summer transfer window.
- Pearce claims Reds are 'probably' looking at Kabak, but they might choose to promote someone from the academy.
- He adds that White was 'frequently' mentioned at Anfield and is another option.
In an interview with Norwegian sports outlet TV2 Sports, the reliable reporter James Pearce said: "I will be surprised if they do not sign someone in January. I do not envisage a situation where they play the whole season with the squad they have now."
Pearce is talking about replacing Virgil van Dijk, who reportedly suffered a grade 3 ACL tear in the Merseyside derby. He continues: "There is a player [Ben White] who has been frequently mentioned at Anfield, and he did very well on loan to Leeds last year, so he is another option.
"Ozan Kabak is probably another player they are looking at and another good alternative. But maybe they also see in their own ranks. I know they have high hopes for the young boy Rhys Williams."
However, Michael Edwards and Jurgen Klopp's may have no choice now as they need to sign a centre-back given that Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are now the only two senior players capable of playing in that position.
