(Bleacher Report) Liverpool could be set to bring Luis Suarez’s Uruguayan teammate and Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin to Anfield as they have changed the main focus of the transfers to bolstering the defense.
With two new midfielders in Jordan Henderson, and Charlie Adam, and the additions of winger Stewart Downing and goalkeeper Alexander Doni, the Reds are making strengthening moves all over the pitch. However, the defense is still an area in need of several tweaks.
Godin had been a heavily tracked Chelsea target over the January transfer window, but the signing of David Luiz for the Blues ended their pursuit of the player until recent reports suggested they could be after him once again according to teamtalk.
Atletico only added Godin last summer for the fee of £6.6 million that was paid to Villareal. However, the Reds have been willing to splash the cash this summer and a possible transfer with the total value around £15 million. Christian Poulson could be included in the deal as the Reds midfield is over crowded and he could possibly welcome a return move to Spain.
