Would love to you who if you guys and girls could choose to buy a centre back to play alongside vvd who would it and why.

I will go first Toby alderwierled. Do I need to justify it? For me he has everything. Great in the air quick, tough as nails, coming into his prime also at 28 so wouldn't stifle Gomez's development who I think we all agree will be future cb for liverpool and England. Playing alongside Toby and Virgil could you learn from any better.

I would take Toby in a heartbeat he is reliable and a leader need I see more.

On paper yes, he has everything and would suit us perfectly, already being settled in england as well. Unfortunately he is also never going to join us in a million years. Although given he hasn't signed a contract, a 'cheeky bid' plus a trip to blackpool could well be worth considering.

He's the Best defender in the premier league.

This is not fantasy football. Much better to sort out the midfield and goalkeeper. Also we don't even know yet how the current center backs will fit in with VVD. I hold a hope one will step up.

We can't buy an £80m player for every position. Toby would cost £100m with little or no sell on value.

Priority order IMO
Goal keeper
Keita's center mid partner
Courtinho replacement ie attacker midfielder and cover front 3.

I rekon that will cost £180m already.

Koulibaly for me.

I'm sticking with what I've said since the start of the month, we need a keeper and a creative midfielder before anything else (seeing as we've already signed Virgil) . I'd sign a right back in the summer and move Gomez into the centre.

For now we have Klavan, Lovren and Matip who can all play centre back alongside Virgil. If we sell any of them in the summer then maybe consider signing another centre back.

I’d say we need a keeper, creative midfielder, and if Naby comes in this month we’ll have our solid spine of the team sorted.

Mark. I never said we needed to spend 80 million every position but then you name 3 positions you think need filled and that's going to cost 180 million. Where is the logic in that. Do I think we will get alderweireld? Prob not . He is that good he would have every team in world footie looking for him.

Also you talk about resale value. I'm a fan not an accountant and to me if we got Toby for arguments sake and in his 4 year contract won us a premier league got us into champions league every year and 1 or 2 other trophies would that not be worth the fee that we pay?

How much resale value will vvd have after his 5 year deal is up and that's without any extensions? He was brought to win trophies and to get us to were we wanna be not to profit from in a few years.

Partner Klavan with VVD and let Gomez and TAA rotate as RB. Unless Clyne goes no point buying a RB as they’ll play second fiddle to TAA as of next year I’d assume anyway, and Gomez can more and cover that position if he does t get thrown in at Cb next ear. Priority should be a goalkeeper and then maybe a midfielder, on paper we have a lot but who is really going to be starter, gini is hot and cold Milner is getting on, cans moving on, Grujic doesn’t seem to take Klopps fancy, Henderson has a reoccurring injury and Lallana. Trust in Klopp to get it sorted the next few windows.

I’d stick Gomez in the middle with VVD and buy a new RB.

Johnbarnes, you can't partner VVD with Klavan as they both play on the left side and Klavan is left footed. I would pick Lovren as he is better when he has a more composed CB next to him. He was great next to Fonte at Saints and great next to Kolo Toure as well when Klopp arrived. He would be my pick.
