If we bring in a new CB we have to get rid of at least one we can't keep piling them up. Van Dijk and Gomez are going nowhere. Hoever is just starting out on a long term development which could see him used as emergency back up for now. Klopp doesn't seem concerned at the idea of using Fabinho (impressive), Wijnaldum (functional) or Henderson (unknown as missed his chance due to injury so Fabinho was used instead) there in emergencies. We've got other academy kids too as well as Hoever. Can't have Lovren, Matip and another on top of that. Need to choose Dejan and/or Joel to move on if someone is coming in.Those are quick fixes, Not something that can work for an extended period of time. I'd rather have Fabinho in midfield. Gomez/Matip/Lovren have all been injured this season and that could have potentially derailed our season. We'd still need one more CB. Maybe Hoever can do that role, A preseason training along with Virgil probably can help ease matters.
Edit: Also no idea why they are quick fixes. Henderson and Wijnaldum are fine at number 6, top class. Henderson was our starter there for a long time and we were doing fine. Fabinho is just better, Van Dijk probably would be too though. If Klopp decided with Fabinho that's it's best for him and LFC for him to become a permanent CB I think it's fine. Fabinho is shit hot in CM but also at CB. It's just deciding whether its better to use Gomez/Matip/Lovren at CB or Henderson/Wijnaldum at number 6. As long as Van Dijk and Fabinho fill 2 out of 3 positions.
