Liverpool have missed out on signing the highly rated Columbian defender, Cristian Zapata. The central defender was linked with a move to Liverpool this summer from Udinese but instead he has decided to join Spanish club Villarreal.

A club statement read: “Udinese announces it has sold the sporting rights of Colombian defender Cristian Zapata to Villarreal.

“We wish to thank the player for his professionalism during his six years at the club and we wish him the best of luck in the future.”

Liverpool have now missed out on this 24-year-old central defender and I wonder if this means Dalglish believes he does not need to sign another central defender or his is looking elsewhere?

I am still not sure if we need to sign another central defender. Although Carragher is aging, I still think he will be Kenny’s first choice center back this season and partnering him will be down to the form and fitness of Agger, Skrtel or Soto. Martin Kelly and Danny Wilson are also young capable central defenders who could come into the side if need be.

Do you think Liverpool should go out and buy another top class central defender this summer?
