Hi Eds, now we are nearing that time of the year, any idea what CBs we could be looking at in January? I'd assume we would surely have to be in for one!

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any efforts by Liverpool to add a CB in January to replace Van Dijk or Gomez for however long they are out - and it is a difficult time to buy. You are aware of players Liverpool had previously shown an interest in and it would make sense to boost the Home Grown quota if they do look to an addition - but that has to be offset against cost and clubs not planning on selling in January. The likes of Dael Fry, Ben White and Ben Godfrey have been of interest in the past - only White would potentially make the grade as the starter Klopp wants (e.g. Diego Carlos or Lisandro Martinez). Whilst clubs are already trying to firm up their plans for next summer, few plan to buy in January - taking a player on loan might be an option.]

Thank you Ed.

I hear caulker is free.

Thanks Ed002,

Putting aside who Klippity has the Klopps for, do people think that Lisandro Martinez has what it takes to be a "top" premier league club's starting CB?

I haven't seen much Dutch football to comment with any reasonable knowledge, but my understanding was that he is rather on the small side of things, and not an out and out CB by trade, as he is often foind playing left back or in Midfield.

In any case, I imagine his cost would put him well beyond what Liverpool would be able to afford, even if we did manage to sell a few players in January (e. g. Grujic)

Red Sandman.

{Ed002's Note - He is very well thought of indeed with Real Madrid and Liverpool having him watched last season.}

hjikle, we don’t need a centre forward mate.

I would like us to sign Ben White but I would think he will cost a bomb! Summer is more likely for a big signing to come in.

24 Nov 2020 19:00:19
Ben White would be a great addition but costly, but the home grown issue is never cheaply resolved due to inflation on English players. Would be more than happy with White and Van Dijk though.

Boateng at BM may be a free agent in summer so probably a small fee in jan may help for cover.

25 Nov 2020 09:55:21
Would rather Gomez and Van Dijk meself.

25 Nov 2020 13:39:23
Red Sandman,
if Jurgen thinks Martinez is the man for us as CB or goalkeeper for that matter, I won't argue with him. He seems to know what he's doing.

Jadon that would be great but if it has slipped your attention Gomez and Matip cannot be relied upon for a season, Gomez is facing the third lengthy spell out of his short career already.
