Yours for £1m. Need to make room for Dean Saunders

Also Klopp is very reasonable if players want to move on, as long as it isn’t too late in the day. Human being first, playing asset second and all that.I think if he isnt happy being down the pecking order then he will ask to leave. He wont be sticking around being a distraction. Klopp wont be telling him he is a nailed on starter just to keep him sweet, he will make it perfectly clear what the situation is.
In all honesty I see where @Mousecat is coming from with De Ligt. He woul have to go straight into the first team, and that would be harsh on Gomez who didn’t ask to have his leg broken by a Burnley twat, and certainly didn’t ask to be played at Right Back where injuries for a lad like him are going to be more common.
The difficulty I have is with Van Dijk. While people talk about how injury prone Matip, Gomez, and Lovren are, we forget that Van Dijk was out for six month before he got here, and having Gomez and another belter (like De Ligt) on the books would enable us to give him a bit of rest every now and then. An injury to him could properly fuck us.
With my fantasy football head on, we sell Lovren and pick two from Van Dijk, Gomez and De Ligt, with matip as a fourth choice for the season (he can leave for free next summer).
The realist in me says is more likely we look at the 22 goals we conceded, conclude we can’t do much better, and stick with what we have.
