Apologies for the question but after listening to the sharkopod, I still can't understand one of the names that Ed002 mentioned. Mohammed Ubdabelli (spelling is obviously wrong) . I understood him to mean a PSG player but can't find anyone on their roster who has an even vague aquaintance with the spelling I have used.

{Ed002's Note - You may have found an old one Phil - it was Mahamadou Dembele who was told to RBS in the summer and now is on loan at an Austrian side (I don't recall which). To make it easy. Benedikt Howedes (CB) (if Juventus don't take up their option). Virgil van Dijk (CB) damaged goods could well happen if the owners are willing to take the loss of face - all in all a very embarrassing situation. Stefan de Vrij (CB) - could be a good January option. Plus a youngster - Perr Schuurs (CB) expected to join at 18 - not first team right away, and an enquiry was made for another youngster
Francisco Ferreira (CB) - Benfica won't want to sell in January and at 20 and from the second tier, not one for the Liverpool first team but they have enquired.}

Question for Ed002:
Is Klopp looking to sign one or two centre backs? Or is it the case of one in January and another in the summer?
Personally think we need two.

{Ed002's Note - Initially it will just be one I think IB.}

Ok cheers Ed002.
De Vrij is my pick for January and then someone like Koulibaly who is much more cultured defender than VVD. But I fear there will be more attractive options for Koulibaly in the summer with Barcelona also interested.

{Ed002's Note - You are correct that barcelona has Kalidou Koulibaly on their list of CB targets, not at the top, but on their list.}

Ed002 thanks for that. Must be because Im an Ozzie but have some troubles understanding your accent at times:-) Maybe your sharkopods should come with subtitles - like those TV shows my wife watches eg Rat Bastards :-)

{Ed002's Note - I am told I have a slightly odd accent as I left America 36 years ago.}
