Hi eds,

Any truth in what Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has been saying that, Liverpool are interested in centre back Nikola Maksimović?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of an approach from Liverpool for Nikola Maksimovic (CB) although Napoli are happy to sell NM rather than have him run down his contract at the end of the season. They have held discussions with Fiorentina and Roma have declared an interest but are dealing with another matter first still. Ancelotti knows the player well and could look to taking him to Everton. Inter have considered him as a Milan Skriniar replacement but he is not top of their list. West Ham have also spoken with Napoli.}

Do you think he would be doable financially and how do you think he would fair in the PL?


{Ed002's Note - Sure because he is running his contract down. He is of an age where he is not the starter Klopp wants - at least 2 years to old but he is a well liked player.}

Never heard of the chap TBH, and I know we don’t have much cash, but I do think we need to buy someone for this position ASAP as we’re just making it much harder for ourselves to compete across the season by refusing to do so.

I know Fab has played well there but it’s not his natural position and then stick Hendo in as well and we’re without our first choice midfield as well as our first choice central defence.

From what I’ve seen of our youngsters there’s a serious lack of pace - how our coaches didn’t notice that before I don’t know - add that to minimal experience and we’re in a poor position in terms of winning something this season.

To redress my ignorance, just done a bit of research. Sounds like he's a decent player, good on the ball and with a decent passing range. Not been a regular at Napoli as behind Koulibaly and Manolas in the pecking order which sounds like pretty stiff competition. Read that he's more comfortable playing in a back 3 so that could be a sticking point.

As stated above, I think we need an experienced specialist at CB to cover the loss of VVD and JG so I'd be happy to take a punt on this fella if there's a sensible deal to be had.
