First January signing? Club agree £50m fee for Liverpool target

Burnley have slapped a 50 million price tag on reported Liverpool target James Tarkowski.

Sean Dyche is worried about losing the central defender and will make thrashing out a deal for his switch to Anfield difficult as the season enters midway.

Liverpool have seen injuries mar their chances of collecting their first silverware this term, following defeat to Wolverhampton at the Miloneux.

Klopp’s side were defeated 2-1 by the host, bringing the challenges at the back  back into focus.

Liverpool are advantaged in the Premier League, steering four points clear of champions City at the top.

But with plenty of games on the horizon, it is easy for his side to get bushed quickly, inviting sloppiness in their game play.

Tarkowski fits the bill and according to the Sun, 50 million pounds could be the bait that could tempt him to leave Burnley for Anfield this month.

Earlier this week, Klopp had downplayed the idea of landing a defender this month. The German boss said, Liverpool will “have to try and come through in the moment”
