Liverpool is closing in on the signing of Ragnar Klavan, with the Estonian defender set to fly to England on Tuesday to undergo a medical.

The 30-year-old center-back has made more than 100 appearances for Augsburg, helping lead the Bundesliga club to the Europa League last season where they were eliminated by Liverpool in the Round of 32.

The move is for a reported $5.5 million.

Jurgen Klopp will be familiar with Klavan from his time managing Dortmund, bringing defensive depth to a Liverpool side that let both Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel leave this summer, while Joe Gomez and Mamadou Sakho are currently out injured.
