Liverpool joined the race to sign 27-year-old Serie A centre-back

Liverpool could make their move to add Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan this month. The Reds are looking to bring in defensive reinforcements following the injury to Virgil van Dijk. And they have identified Slovakia international has as a possible target.

Skriniar has established himself as one of the best centre-backs across Europe, and he would prove to be a quality acquisition for the Merseyside giants. Milan will be out of the deal at the end of the campaign, and the Nerazzurri have not been able to agree on a deal extension with him yet.

The report claims that the Nerazzurri are willing to do everything in their power to tie him down to a new long-term contract. But the 27-year-old centre-back has not accepted their offer yet. Therefore, a January sale is definitely on the cards amid interest from the Reds and others.

And it stays to be seen whether the Reds can convince the Slovakian defender to move to Liverpool this month. The Merseyside giants are chasing a top-four finish, and they cannot afford to weaken their squad right now. And recent reports claimed that they are preparing a deal offer for the Slovakian.

Milan Skriniar has the potential to step up in the absence of the Dutchman and tighten Liverpool up at the back. The Reds have been hugely disappointing defensively this campaign. And bringing in the right defensive reinforcements in January could help Liverpool salvage their campaign.
