But Redknapp thinks Klopp will need to sign a new defender long-term.

Football Whispers have rated Liverpool's chances in the transfer market
“James Milner’s done a great job,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports.
“He’s the sort of guy that can play that position, but I think long-term maybe Klopp needs a left-back.
“If you ask Milner if that’s his favourite position, it’s probably not, he’s a midfield player.
“Finding left-backs is difficult. You can go though Europe and world football, they are not easy to find because a lot of left-backs think they’re forwards or wingers these days.

“They don’t really want to defend, you need the perfect balance. So left-back will be a position they need to fill in time but at the moment I don’t see Liverpool doing any business today. It’s too late.”
