A question for Ed01 if I may, I seem to remember you mentioning that klopp was after 2 centre backs before the arrival of VVD. Do you know if the club is still looking to get another centre back now that VVD has arrived or do you think gomez will be partnered with VVD instead?

If we are indeed looking for a centre back, I personally hope that its Aymeric Laporte. A top top player in my book and a french international that might take some persuading to leave bilbao? Food for thought maybe?

Lastly, I know I am late for this one Ed01, have been lurking around but didn't have time to post. Sorry for your loss Ed and stay strong mate. Great site and keep up the good work!

{Ed001's Note - not in January mate. There are other priorities in the summer, but Klopp would like one more still.

Thank you very much COR.}

Akanji is a possibility in summer, wouldn’t mind if we did. Also there’s Gimenez and De Vrij who would be available for free in the summer too.

It would make sense convincing de vrij to sign a pre contract for the summer. Akanji is not quiet ready and very similar to vvd.

Plus we will need to look for a top class keeper and possibly another midfielder and attacking midfielder if we don't get one this window. So saving money getting a free but decent defender for the summer makes sense. Disclaimer: i know its not really free with signing on fees, agents fees etc.

{Ed002's Note - You can forget De Vrij.}

While I think he is a good defender, I am not convinced that De Vrij is the answer. I think he is abit too slow to play in the system klopp likes to play, and I can see him having a similar problem to Lovren in our system.

I agree with you regarding Akanji. I think he is a good prospect, but if we are going to get him and play him alongside VVD, we might as well give gomez a shot. If not, keep gomez at rb and get a more accomplished centre back.

I'd like to apologise for asking about random players, but if Ed01 is around, can I have your opinion on Laporte? I personally like him a lot (as you can see from my original post! ) and he reminds me abit of Agger with his cultured left foot and the threat he poses from set pieces.

We should offer alderweireld a pay rise from tottenham when we get CL and they dont.

Shame if we've missed De Vrij.
I see media outlets yesterday saying he's still not signed an extension with Lazio but obviously we'd have a lot of competition to get him.
Gomez to CB next season then and get in a new RB if Clyne is gone.
