Liverpool fans have been on social media discussing whether their club need to sign another centre-back in this summer’s transfer window.
Virgil van Dijk has been an absolute colossus at the heart of the defence.
Meanwhile, Joel Matip deserves huge credit for biding his time in the early stages of the 2018-19 campaign before taking full advantage of Joe Gomez’s absence through injury.
Dejan Lovren is easily the least popular centre-back with the fans.
But it is certainly worth remembering that Lovren helped Croatia reached the 2018 World Cup final and is a capable operator at the highest level.
There are a number of Liverpool supporters who feel that central defence is not an area in need of strengthening in this summer’s transfer window.

However, not everyone agrees as Ajax’s exceptional teenager Matthijs de Ligt has been mentioned by Liverpool fans as a desired signing.

Only if it is De Ligt imo

No need, prioritise the midfield.

Need one? Absolutely not, but when someone as generational as de Ligt is on the market then I think we really have to go in for him

No. Creative midfielder, left back cover and someone to help out with the front 3 should be the priority. We have Gomez. Don’t need that Dutch kid in my opinion.

Yes. Lovren should go and we should try for de ligt if we dont her him go for another good young CB.
