Koulibaly for sakho, or van dijk
Will he ask to leave if he loses his starting spot at LB to a new signing and then doesn't have a regular spot in CM? I don't think he will, but it just seems that we can never build up the squad without losing someone. Milner's a great team player and good to have in the squad, but will he happily accept a lesser role?
Really don't see either happening considering our needs
5 for starting team - 4 for cover and 2 for development
Team 1 - New Keeper - Clyne - Matip - New Centre Back - Milner - New DM - New B2B Midfielder - Mane - Lallana - Coutinho - New Striker
Team 2 - Mignolet - Trent Arnold - Lovren - Klavan - New Left Back - Henderson - Wijnaldum - Cover for Mane - Cover for Lallana - Cover for Coutinho - Firmino
Team 3 - Karius - New Development Right Back - Gomez - Masterson - New Development Left Back - Can - Ejaria - Ojo - Woodburn - Wilson - Origi
Improve the 50% win ratio of Klopp - 2 games a week and challenging on all fronts.......
Matip is also a DM so if we sign van dijk there is an option to play lovren and van dijk or new CB with Matip going forward as he does here and there anyway
What's the solution? The solution is improving the spine and adding more natural width. That involves signing a defensive midfielder, a centre back and a striker that plays off the shoulder of the last defender. They can't beat the press if you counter quickly and have the power to have them try and break us down. That's why more natural width is needed.
In essence it means definitely signing 5 players. Maybe 6.

Klopp needs to resolve the issues surrounding Sturridge, Markovic, Lucas and potentially Can. An upgrade on Stewart is necessary and even more urgent given Henderson's situation. The glaring issues in defense cannot be ignored. Two CBs if Sakho is going, an LB and a CDM plus DLP plus a versatile attacker are necessary.
Hull left back Robertson for 8m is doing the rounds as a confirmed deal for the summer
"But the talks we’ve had so far are very positive. That doesn’t mean it will all work out, but they are really positive, and they all see the progress. That’s good.”
