In an exclusive report in The Mirror yesterday, it was suggested that Rafa may be targeting 22-year old, Liam Fontaine from Bristol City. Fontaine is a centre-back and I wonder why Rafa would be after him? We have great cover in central defence with Carragher, Hyypia, Agger and Skrtel. We even have Jack Hobbs who can do a great job. I am sure if Rafa is to sign Fontaine he would be ‘one for the future’.
Maybe Rafa is thinking long term. Hyypia has a season or two left in him and Carragher is not getting any younger. So maybe it would not be a bad move on Rafa’s part to get a young centre back and groom him for the future.
