In Klopp we trust
- Jun 11, 2018
Im all for replacing a player with a better one if possible.It does make sense, to be honest. While I'm an advocate of replacing Lovren, bringing in de Ligt for mega-money while we have Gomez in the squad, with a rejuvenated Matip as an excellent third-choice, doesn't seem like a huge priority.
I just hope he does go to Barca (for example) rather than either of the Manchester clubs.
So Gomez is very good but is he the new Sturridge? Hes been unlucky with injuries but they have all been long term ones - like Daniel.
Id bring in De Ligt and move on Lovren. Having the issue of getting Matip, Gomez and De Ligt in the team is a good problem to have (City have had the same issue with Stones, Kompany, La Porte and Otemendi and done them no harm). Could even rest VVD a few times if needed.
Whoever we sign I dont think we will hear anything until after the final as we dont want to create any disharmony to those focused on the final.
