REDSHIRT ~ I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one

I agree that he won't just be looking for 'cover', he will be looking for squad members equally as good for taking on the role of the sitting player. I can see Jürgen going after maybe a couple of players this summer transfer window, but no more than that. I can see him having more reliance on top Academy players, bringing them through as he did TA-A and to a lesser degree Joe Gomez.Why would we be fixated that it has to be "cover" that we are seeking? While Robertson is probably top 3 LB in the world, if not the best, we would not want any player to think they are irreplaceable. If we ever spend 40mil, even if that is the norm now, its not going to be just "cover". It has to be Klopp thinking that this player can challenge and can be as good or even better. If it is just for cover, there would be plenty of players out there to choose from who are just good enough, at a low price and don't mind sitting on the bench most of the time. LB would probably be my number 2 priority after getting in at least one competent challenger to the front trio. And I don't think in that position, Klopp will be looking for just "cover", i think he would rather depend on current options like Milner if he cannot get the player he wants.
