Ed’s any update on the White / D Carlos situations in regards to a potential move to LFC? I understand everything must be pretty much stagnant right now but wondered if there is still an intention to replace Lovren or Matip?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing new and it would be Lovren replacement and upgrade on Gomez. Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City have dropped their interest and are looking at others. Real Madrid has a sustained interest but the focus will be getting a priority signing done first, seeing what funds can be raised and then returning for DC. Barcelona have him on their list of CBs but money is going to be an issue this summer and they will look to horse trade using Ivan Rakitic. Priority is, like Real Madrid and get their major transfer completed and then see where they are. Liverpool has declared an interest in taking DC in the summer. If this happens, I would think it would be the big move for the club this summer and would leave Gomez picking up pieces across the defence. May be viable for Liverpool to include Xherdan Shaqiri in a deal.
Ben White (CB) potentially the pick of the younger home grown CBs - if Diego Carlos were to arrive or a CB were not to leave, he can also be scratched. Has a significant advantage over Carlos as he is home grown - and Liverpool has a HG problem. Might well become the preferred choice over Carlos as a Lovren replacement - but it would push Joe Gomez down the pecking order. Manchester City have a growing interest in Ben White.}

I wouldn’t swap Gomez for anyone to be honest, he does a good job and has worked his way to the top, he would be a good example to those in the academy of what perseverance and hard work does for your career.
I would like to think there are bigger priorities if we are spending.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think there is any plan to move Gomez on but there is interest from Klopp in having Diago Carlos as the starter id van Dijk.}

Ed how good is Diego Carlos how much would he cost and for the price is he much of an upgrade on Gomez. Or do you think the money could be spent on other position that need it more. I think we could do with replacing Lovren but a younger covering cab would be best.

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos is seen as being very good, hence the interest of clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Liverpool. He has a release clause (which Liverpool can invoke) of €75M but I have no doubt that any interest side would want to negotiate down and discuss the terms as a single cash payment will be something they would look to avoid. Seville have identified a suitable replacement and accept he can leave - but they will have to drop the asking price to make that happen.}

I really rate Gomez but signing a top quality CB is a good move. Apart from VVD, our other three CBs Gomez, Lovren and Matip haven't been able to keep fit for long periods of time (whether their fault or others) and the CBs are one area of the pitch (along with GK) you want the barest minimum of swapping players about. Also, the new CB could slot in for VVD who has barely had a rest since signing for us. Whether that top quality CB is Diego Carlos or Ben White, I don't know, but I trust the scouts and the manager to bring in the right player.

I don’t think Gomez has injury record like Matip and Lovren it’s just his been very unlucky with bad injuries like his knee and broken leg. But anybody can get them injuries that’s just unlucky. And Has picked up them when playing fullback. Lovren seems the worst only plays a hand full of games and is out and Matip is not much better seems to play a dozen games then picks up an hip injury or hamstring and is out for about 6 weeks.

It would be a shame to see Gomez relegated to a bit part player, hope this guy is the perfect choice next to VVD.
