The Telegraph are reporting Diego Carlos is Guardiola's first choice CB. Be interesting to see if we throw our hat in the mix should city make a move for him.

The only reason I'm posting this is because Klopp has an interest.

Have you heard anything on this ( regarding City's ) interest Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Diego Carlos (CB) Manchester City had dropped their interest in preference of two others - but it could return. Real Madrid has a sustained interest but the focus is seeing what funds can be raised and then returning for DC or another. 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 any transfer completed and then see where they are (they have already deferred their two major purchases to next summer). 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 but that opportunity is very quickly drifting away and having no funds will hamper them.

I think Gomez will be picking up the pieces of his liverpool career if we spend big money on a CB.

17 Jul 2020 12:45:20
Thanks for the comprehensive reply Ed002.

You need to ask yourself, if Virg was to get injured, can you see Gomez as the same player without Virg next to him. Gomez is brilliant but I think Klopp would want another leader/ strong centre half. Personally I don't think Gomez posseses leadership qualities in the backline if we missed Virg.

17 Jul 2020 13:33:05
I doubt they'll sell him for a hat.

17 Jul 2020 18:31:32
Gomez may be a bit young to be a Virgil type CB but he is still a very good CB and I do not think we will be looking to replace him.

17 Jul 2020 17:30:11
Hi Ed, I hope you are keeping well.

Do you think we would make a move even if we hadn't done the potential business that would raise the (or any of the) funds?

I have read and understood your view re our finances but is this player and in particular this position important enough for Klopp to react should it look like he is losing him prior to the expected sales?

I appreciate that it's a speculative question but I hope you see what I mean and why I ask.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - The club does not have funds without selling unless they dip in to the money that is available from all of the assets being mortgaged, including Anfield. That makes ltlle sense to me.}

Gomez can't pass. Has only got pace. he's a 3rd choice if a more cultured def is available. Klopp knows it. He struggled to oust matip before he got injured.

17 Jul 2020 21:39:56
I don't understand what has happened to Gomez's confidence? As He was doing fine last season. As things stand today, Matip is the better CB.

17 Jul 2020 23:27:56
Gomez can't pass? had to read that line a few times.

18 Jul 2020 03:20:30
Get off Gomez back. We just won the league and there was an expected hangover. Granted we didn't expect a 4-0 hangover and a loss to Arsenal but don't throw the towel in on Gomez. I personally like the scenario of Gomez filling in at all spots, Larouchi getting a move away which is good for his career and whatever transfer funds we have being used for Carlos. I think we are a few years from seeing Ki jana and Sepp ready to step up, so it would make plenty of sense to me.

Joe gomez is 23 and has won the premier league champions league and club world cup as a centre back with liverpool.

Some people are saying he ain't good enough. Name me a better centre half around his age. He plays in a high pressure environment week in week out at a top level. He ain't a 23 year old cb playing in a soft league. Look at our goals conceded total this year.

Hes about 6 years away from his peak too btw.

If gomez struggles with anything its confidence at times. That will mature naturally. he's a much better centre half than even he thinks he is and certainly a much better centre half than some liverpool supporters think.

He would walk into any other defence in the premier league and he's home grown as well.

Liverpool need another back up cb if lovern leaves. Nothing more. If they can get a really good one who is happy to rotate and at a decent price then great.

18 Jul 2020 14:07:54
you don't have be over 23 to pass a ball.

18 Jul 2020 18:15:55
What is this nonsense about Gomez not being able to pass?

Sure, he can't ping 50 yard passes like Vigil can, but he's adept enough at passing for what he needs.

19 Jul 2020 07:48:20
he often puts others under pressure with his passing. Personally think it's a weak point far outweighed by the rest of his game.

We do need another first choice CD though.

I like gomez he’s quick and statistically gomez and VVD are a great partnership. As in they rarely concede. For me liverpool still need a proper striker more than anything else. 20 plus shots on goal scoring one isn’t good enough. Mane Salah and Firmino are superb but often they need 5 chances to score one. Firmino hasn’t scored at anfield this season. Brilliant player who for me is one of the first players on the team sheet but his finishing isn’t great. We need a Torres type up top imo.
