Liverpool were ‘offered the chance’ to sign Arsenal defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos this month amid a defensive injury crisis at Anfield.

The Greece international was not registered in Arteta’s Premier League squad for the first half of the 2020/21 season, leaving him stuck on the sidelines like fellow outcast Mesut Ozil.
And speaking on the Here We Go Podcast, journalist Fabrizio Romano revealed the experienced defender – who worked with Reds boss Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund – is being considered as a potential option by club hierarchy.
“He was offered to Liverpool too, you know that? Liverpool were looking for an opportunity and he was offered to Liverpool, but at the moment he’s not an option,” Romano explained.
“Because of his relationship with Jurgen Klopp?” Romano’s co-host then asked.

“Yes, also he could be an opportunity, he was an opportunity because he was offered, but at the moment Liverpool have not decided whether they’re signing a centre-back or not, they’re still in the middle of the situation, so nothing has been decided.”
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are both long-term absentees, and with Joel Matip injury-prone that means Liverpool have no fit senior central defender at their disposal right now.
Klopp has previously said Liverpool will not be signing a defender this month, but these latest developments indicate he may yet delve into the market for an experienced head like Sokratis for the second half of the campaign.
