Yes ZB, Ake is a good shout and more realistic than De Ligt. Maybe we should have offered them £20m plus Solanke? One thing is without doubt, ILLOK would LOVE that signing.
I am (un)reliably informed that Ake is too small.
Keita Balde personality doesn't fit the profile of someone Klopp would want in his squad. Too much ego.
Considering that the level of player in the squad currently is so high, you'd think the club are looking at players of a higher calibre than Ake. He's not better than any of the 4 CB's at the club, nor does he have the potential to be. He's also listed as being 1.80 in height which is considerably shorter than what Klopp has clearly felt is important in his CB's.
Strangely enough you ‘liked’ that post SBS! ;-)
Personally, I think he looks a good option for LB/LCB.
