Why are Liverpool linked with a move for another right-back? The latest news coming out of Ghana claim that right-back Samuel Inkoom is set to join Liverpool in the January transfer window from Ukrainian side Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.

Inkoom told Ghana radio station Top Radio: “My agent is still locked in talks with my club and a scout of Liverpool and a deal could be concluded very soon.

“Nothing has been decided yet on whether I will join Liverpool on loan or move permanently.

“Liverpool is one of the biggest names in football and so if everything goes well and the Lord allows it, everyone will see where I am going and hopefully, it will be Liverpool, which will be a big step for me.”

Liverpool already have Glen Johnson, Martin Kelly and John Flanagan who can play at right-back so why would we need to spend more money on another one? If Inkoom’s claims are true then it could mean that Dalglish and Comolli do not think that Johnson will be able to last a full season for us with all his injury problems and maybe it is time to start playing Kelly as a centre-back and thus the need for another top right-back?

What are your thoughts?
