Incoming Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is likely to target Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic in the January transfer window, according to the Mirror.

The enigmatic German coach, who looks set to replace Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield dugout imminently, is reportedly happy with the squad on Merseyside, but is likely to suggest the signing of a centre-back and a left-back when the market reopens. 

It appears that Klopp will look to make a couple of changes at the club over the coming months, but the same report from the Mirror goes on to claim that he has already reassured the hierarchy that he's happy with the current system in place.

Klopp, who has been out of work since departing BVB at the end of last season, could yet return to the club in an attempt to secure the services of Subotic.

Subotic is recognised as one of the leading defenders in the Bundesliga, so would prove quite the coup for the Reds. It's far from certain, however, as to whether Dortmund will entertain the Reds in their pursuit of the Serbian international. 

Class act 

Since moving to Signal Iduna Park back in 2008, Subotic has been a revelation for Dortmund. The towering defender, alongside Mats Hummels, has been a model of consistency in Germany and would no doubt shine in England's elite division. 

At 26-years-old, the centre-back is approaching the prime of his career and would no doubt prove an upgrade on the likes of Mamadou Sakho, Kolo Toure and Co.
