    Matip and VVD would be formidable. Even Lovren and VVD would be formidable. Van Dijk has the pace to get partner out of trouble and has the height to deal with set pieces.

    I hope you are right Fred, I would love a quality CB pairing that gets to play most of the season together.

    http://www.thehardtackle.com/news/20...or-70-million/

    if he can add a left back of the same quality we ll win the league...

    i still expect sturridge to be gone by the end of the window along with lucas moreno marko sahko ojo kent and maybe even emre

    I dont think we will sell many and if we do buy a LB, I still think Milner will start the season and it ill be down to the new lad to show his quality and force Milner out.

    He has done really well as a LB and Klopp really likes "Milly" !

    if we pay 70m for VVD after buying lambert,lallana,clyne,lovren and mane I think it would have been cheaper to just buy Southampton and be done with it surely we are close to the sum it would cost

    Apparently the third kit was supposed to be purple but they changed it at the last moment to Orange. Can't be a coincidence. Smart move really.

    People like to think all players are available at a price, no matter how high, but it is possible to have a player who is not for sale (at any price)
    If the player wants the move there will always be a price that could tempt the selling club to conclude the deal. That's just how it works. In our case with Van Dijk and Keita, if the rumours are true and we are willing to pay 60-70 million for each, then Southampton and Leipzig would be mad not to sell them. Imagine if someone offered 100 + for Coutinho. He's our best player alright, but there is no way if he wants to move and we get far more than what he's worth that we wouldn't sell. If a club say the player is not for sale it just means that you need do pay well over his market value that's all.

    By the time the next AFCON comes along, we'll be so far out of reach of the others that a month without them won't matter.

    That could open up the pathway for us to enter. Seems until VvD hands in a transfer request, there is naff all we can do. And he said he wants to join us, so I welcome a bid from Juventus.

    Yeah, I can definitely see them spending 70m on a CB.

    Tbf they did spend 75m on a striker last year, so they have more precedent of spending the big bucks than we do.

    Reckon they decided they wanted Higuain and 15m for Pogba.

    Seems a bit stupid to sell one of the best CBs in the world for 35m (to a rival no less) to then go and spend 70m on a new CB to me. Very odd.
