Liverpool are poised to sign Queens Park Rangers defender Steven Caulker on loan until the end of the season and supporters have made their feelings about the potential deal very clear on Twitter.

The Daily Mail understand the Reds want to sign the one-time England international, who has been on loan with Southampton since the start of the season, on a short-term basis.

In order for that to happen, Southampton would need to agree to cancel the defender’s current loan contract. But considering the 24-year-old has only made three Premier League appearances for the Saints this term, it seems Liverpool stand a good chance of signing the player this month.

Liverpool supporters are not convinced Caulker is a player that Jurgen Klopp has personally identified as a potential signing.

Many appear to believe this is a player that has been suggested to Klopp by the club’s transfer committee.

However, Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre insisted back in November - per the Guardian - that Klopp has the “final say” on which players are signed by the club. This indicates that the revered German coach has given the green light for the Reds to sign Caulker on loan.

Here’s how Liverpool fans have reacted to the news on Twitter…

Injury crisis at Anfield

Given that Liverpool currently have an injury crisis on their hands - defenders Martin Skrtel, Dejan Lovren, Mamadou Sakho, Joe Gomez, Kolo Toure and Jon Flanagan are all currently sidelined - it’s hardly surprising that Klopp is desperate to bolster his defensive options this month.

Caulker’s career may have stagnated of late but it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Klopp will bring the best out of the former Tottenham starlet at Anfield.
