      To be honest, even if that doesn’t happen, the fact he would replace Lovren immediately justifies 70mill well spent. Hell, I’d be happy for us to pay someone 70mill to take Lovren!!

      Hahahahahahahaha

      Hey, were playing Swans next. If we do our usual trick against the bottom sides, and gift them 3 points, VVD or anyone else, may not wanna come here !

      Telegraph say City are in talks with Southampton over a £60m deal. Wouldn't be in the least surprising if true...silly money and all that.

      Not sure I'm THAT concerned because surely to god there has to be a centre back out there worth signing who is comfortably under £60m.

      Pick the best ten leagues in world, assign one scout to each league and identify centre backs that fit the bill. Virgil Van Dyke cannot be the only one available.

      He's good but extremely overrated and especially at that price, in my opinion.

      Make the scouts earn their money and find someone better. We could get almost anyone for that price.

      Means he's in the market and we can negotiate. We would be the joke of the whole damn town if we didn't get him. Clown Michael Edwards.

      Adam Blackmoore (James Pearce version of Southampton) is saying we are favorites and not Man City to sign VVD.

      In the papers, it is being said that it is 70M.

      On your argument, I would pay 70M for VVD and 50M for a keeper but realistically who should we sign now in January. It would be very difficult to dispossess a better keeper than we already have?

      For 75m I'd expect one of the top 5 centre backs in world football and that he is not.

      I'll trust Jürgen on this one but my gut instinct is telling me this is absolutely mad.

      Just out of interest who would you rate as the Top 5 CB's in the world?

      Who cares about the price these tight fucks have spent jack sh*t less than Watford I think on a net spend basis since they've been here and they will sell coutinho as well so f**k them go get who klopp wants.

      it's telegraph. Telegraph and Guardian don't usually print unless it's true. They're the most reliable tabloids. Hand him the armband already 😀

      That's an important checkbox for the window. I've criticized Klopp but credit where it's due here. It's 50% of the pre window problem areas addressed now.

      This is at best a correction of a mistake made during the summer, when the player already wanted to join us and we already had the funds to spend.

      But still I'm glad to be surprised by LFC finally signing someone capable of having an immediate impact in the team in January
