Last season, Liverpool had the best defensive record in the Premier League, but the situation was very different in the 2020–21 campaign.
Klopp was without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip heading into the winter transfer window the last year, and his team was often conceding goals.
In such a situation, the Reds secured temporary signings by bringing in Ben Davies on a permanent deal and Kabak on a loan. Now, Liverpool has already reached an agreement on a deal that will earn them a profit of around 700% from the sale of Davies.
The Premiership giants are working to finalize the £4 million signing of the former Preston midfielder to replace Calvin Bassey, who is set to join Dutch champions Ajax in a deal worth £20 million, according to The Scottish Daily Mail (press image provided below).

Surprisingly, Davies is going to quit the Reds without ever playing for the team. He either warmed the bench or wasn’t picked for the Match Day squads in the 2020–21 season.
On the other hand, he earned 21 league starts for Sheffield United while on loan with them in the Championship last year.
Liverpool will make a decent profit from the sale of a player they have hardly used. The move should be beneficial for all sides as Klopp has a backline with plenty of quality and depth.
Davies was delighted when he joined Liverpool and never voiced any public complaints about his situation at the club. Let’s wish him all the best.
