Do we have a young CDM in our U-23s or youth teams? Someone who is well thought of and has a real chance of growing into the 1st team?

Jones is a ready made and developing replacement for Gini but I feel rather exposed without having a dedicated back up for Fabs. Yes, Hendo and Thiago have played in the No 6 but its not their natural position and it does show.

I'm with Ed001 in that, rather than buying players as backups we should use our youth in that role.

Hence my initial question.

Leighton clarkson is a holding midfield for the under 23’s I believe. I could be wrong though?
He’s highly thought of though and klopp likened him to Phillip Lahm.

Henderson does the cdm role brilliantly and is the backup to fabinho. The issue with hendo is just that he is so valuable in his typical job as well, but with thiago and jones (and presumably either a new face joining them or keita and chamberlain next season) we have plenty of midfield cover.

I agree on Hendo he was brilliant last season in the number 6 role. But not sure we have enough cover in midfield. Fabs, Hendo and Thiago then we Jones who Klopp doesn’t fully trust yet, Milner who plays less and less and Keita and Ox who only play a handful of games. Like him or not Gini plays 90% of the games so has to be replaced IMO or at some point in the season we will be caught short. Then again cbs much more urgent.
