More talk that were very close to completing the signing of Konate. Do the Ed’s no anything?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer "how close" a transfer is or if Liverpool have now spoken with his club, but as has been explained he is a clear target as a starter to replace Joe Gomez.}

If he's better than Gomez. less than £30m is a steal.

{Ed0666's Note - Gomez on his day is world class. Konate has tonnes of potential but prone to injury like Gomez

We must be in the business of accumulating injury prone defenders.

Don’t think he’s actually that injury prone. He had a recurring muscle injury that after the third required surgery has been okay since. Has had an ankle injury recently that’s kept him out for a while.
Looking at games missed between him and matip, matip has missed far more games over the past 3 seasons. Gomez seems to pick up niggles that keep him him out for a few weeks at a time. (Barring the 2 big injuries he’s had)

Konate, is a must for me.

If we sign him then it would brake sense to keep Kabak and let Matip move on for fitness reasons alone.

Kabak looks a good backup to a first choice pairing. hope we tie that up too this summer.

Neither are injury prone if the injuries they have are impact injuries caused by nasty challenges or freak injuries like the one that took Gomez out this season. Matip, Studge, Agger, Keita? They are injury prone due non impact injuries like knocks and niggles.

We need 3 first choice CBs anyways next season. VVD and Gomez won't play every 3-4 days until early October just as a precaution. Makes sense to have a top CB like Konate in the team coz of this situation.

We could sensibly rotate the cbs through the season, play horses for courses, nat Phillips can play against slow attacks but have a physical presence as can kabak, gomez konate can deal with fast paced attacks with a physical presence and virgil can deal with everything.

VVD, Konate and Gomez as our first 3 CBs would be a solid start to next season.

Can't Konate play right back? Move Trent into the middle?
