What are people's thoughts on young French centre back Issa Diop from Toulouse? I vaguely remember us being "linked" with him last season but always thought it more likely he'd go to Barcelona, PSG, or Monaco before considering Liverpool. However, the latest news seem to indicate West Ham are close to a deal for him for 22 mil. West Ham?!
The guy is 6'4" and, like our new signing, Fabinho, has a great tackling range too. He's aggressive (but not so error-prone as Lovren when doing so), and I've seem him expose gaps in front of him and charge up the field initiating counter-attacks. Again, West Ham?! Imagine him and Van Dijk as our centre back pairing for the next five years!
I get the feeling we're not seriously considering getting in someone else to push Lovren, Matip, and Gomes for the other CB spot, and just going to rely on them and Klavan for depth. Anyone else worried about this?
