3 dream centre-back partners for Joel Matip at Liverpool – thoughts?

Virgil Van Dijk

Van Dijk has shown himself to be a class act at the back for Southampton this season and they’re bound to miss him with him injured at the moment.

The Dutchman’s reading of the game, ability to shrug off attackers with power and pace and eye for a pass make him a superb example of a modern centre-half and we think alongside Matip he’d go up another level. Quite the prospect for us to try and get in, then.
