      The big factor here will be whete does Nat want to reach?

      Is he ok with playing for Liverpool as 4th 5th or 6th choice or does he take a move should it come?

      I think if we are totally honest if we intend to be European champions and English champions regularly in the next 10 years then he does not play too often.

      I have said all along how well hes doing but he is too inclined to rush in to things, ball follows too much and being honest lacks the recovery speed to make us the best.

      Hes a cult hero, like Erik Meijer. We loved him for his heart but nobody wanted big Erik as first choice striker

      I disagree, he should be 3rd choice after VVD and Gomez. Both of the others have pace so they will compliment Nat. I would sell Matip and keep Kabak as 4th defender.

      Nope I see Kabak potentially developing into third choice, or we buy someone even better, we would then have Nat either as 4th or 5th, but with the amount of injuries we always get at CB he'll still get plenty of games. We need 5 CB's at the club.

      Yea, he could have a future here and play a decent amount of games filling in but I think we're kidding ourselves if we think he's anything more than that.

      I like what he's done but there's no way he's better than Matip. If Joel can't stay fit, then yes, we need to find a replacement, but when he's fit, Joel is better than Gomez and better than a lot of starting CBs in the world. Phillips is a good 4th choice or maybe 3rd in a pinch, but if we wish to be winning regularly, we can't have him playing regularly.

      Take nothing away from him, he's done a good job and done what's been asked in a tough situation, but J├╝rgen needs ball playing CBs for his system.

      I'd rate Nat about the same as a Martin Kelly type. He'd probably do better to go to a smaller club and get regular gametime once we get our starters back.

      Be interesting what he does with him and Kabak could they be 3rd and 4th choice suppose it depends on Matip

      Big man has taken his chance now. if he keeps this form up rest of the season, he has a chance of staying in the mix long term at LFC.

      Matip is not a safe option for us! He's a very good player but made of glass. I would sail his ship elsewhere. We need CBs who are fitness wise very well.

      No one's saying he's better than Matip, but what he is fitter than Matip and usually available to play unlike Matip.

      When we lost Van Dijk, on top of his obvious skill, we also lost a great header of the ball which is a great asset to have not just defensively in clearing danger away in the box but also in recovering possession in midfield when there's a high ball counter attack and he would win the header and we would go back on offense.

      Nat has been able to provide that and has been solid in every area. We know he's not starting quality for a team like Liverpool, but could definitely be a solid depth guy for us or a starter at a smaller team.
