Liverpool to make a move for Odilon Kossounou

Liverpool are reportedly contemplating a move for Bayer Leverkusen’s talented defender, Odilon Kossounou, in the upcoming January transfer window. Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool manager, is apparently focused on fortifying his defensive options as the club looks to bolster its squad.

Odilon Kossounou boasts a noteworthy track record, having featured in 53 games for Bayer Leverkusen. His footballing prowess extends beyond club duties, as he has also accumulated 17 appearances for the Ivory Coast national team, showcasing his international experience and versatility.

Reports suggest that Kossounou is eager for the opportunity to make a move to Anfield, especially after his potential transfer to West Ham failed to materialize during the summer window. The prospect of joining Liverpool, a club with a storied history and a tradition of success, is an enticing proposition for the talented defender.

Jurgen Klopp’s interest in securing a new center-back is rooted in persistent injury concerns surrounding key players such as Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip. Additionally, Liverpool has seen academy graduates Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams depart on loan, further accentuating the need for defensive reinforcements.

As per Transfermarkt’s valuation, Kossounou is currently priced at £15 million. However, it’s worth noting that the defender still has three years remaining on his contract with Bayer Leverkusen. Therefore, Liverpool might need to offer a more substantial sum to secure a deal when the January transfer window opens.


Liverpool’s pursuit of Odilon Kossounou underscores the club’s commitment to addressing its defensive requirements and shoring up the squad’s depth. As the transfer window approaches, Liverpool fans will be watching closely to see if Kossounou dons the famous red jersey and becomes a vital part of the club’s defensive contingent.
