Liverpool have been held back numerous times over the past few seasons from making a serious Premier League title challenge.
Defensive issues have marred the Merseyside outfit for some time, but it has vastly improved since Jurgen Klopp made a handful of crucial signings.
Virgil van Dijk moved to Anfield from Southampton in January and his presence at the back bred confidence through the rest of the team.
Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson signed for the Reds from Roma this summer, which has also strengthened the team’s spine significantly.
However, there is still uncertainty over who Van Dijk’s long-term centre-back partner will be.
At the moment, Joe Gomez has the role, while Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are also options for Klopp.
Question marks have been raised over the quality of the defensive line, and a recent report from Kickoff claimed that Liverpool are considering a move for Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard.
The Frenchman, who won the World Cup in the summer, can play at centre-back or as a right-back.
We asked you if the Reds need Pavard, and the majority of fans want Klopp to make a move.
