With Jamie Carragher now ruled out for 3 months following his shoulder injury and with with Daniel Agger always being out injured, Liverpool may be forced to go into the transfer market in Januray in search of a central defender. The names being thrown around this morning are those of Bolton defender Gary Cahill and French defender Adil Rami.

Bolton rate Cahill at £15m but after recently revealing debts of £93m, they could be tempted by an offer of £10m. Cahill is 24 years old and he is English would would suite in well with the new team structures Liverpool want. The fact that Cahill already has Premier League experience makes him a more attractive option than Rami. Cahill is now also an England international which underlines his pedigree coupled with the fact that he has also been tracked by Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Rami would also not be a bad buy as he is also 24 and he impressed when he played for France against England at Wembley recently. Lille would not be looking for less than £12m for their star defender.

With the way we are squeezed for cash, I do not think it is a top priority right now to splash out a lot of money on a top central defender. I still believe that we should give Danny Wilson a chance and see how he does. Hodgson has said Wilson will start in tomorrows Europa League game so we will see how he does there.

Who should Liverpool sign: Gary Cahill or Adil Rami?

    Kelly could do the job too, he could be the next Carra in time.

    This is more like knee-jerk reaction. We are not desperate for this as we do have depth and both Kelly and Wilson fit.
    The point is if Wilson is not up to it then why was he bought?
    We are going absolutely nowhere this season so the time will be more usefully spent blooding in a new structured team. It is now that what we have in stock is thoroughly examined and a decision made to their staying or leaving. We have no time for pussy-footing around at this stage of a rebuild.

    Give the young lads, wilson, kelly and the guy on loan a chance. If we are to add , do so next summer when Taylor from Newcastle will be free, and lets see what the younger players can do.

  4. Jay Wright says:

    Totally agree with the sentiments above – give the younger players a chance, otherwise how will we know whether we actually have a star on our own hands or not fss!

    Our youngsters have more pedigree than the youngsters that shine elsewhere, but ours never get a proper chance to grow in the first team and so stagnate & regress.

    Tbh, I’d rather see Kelly, Wilson or Ayala learning from their mistakes in the first team, instead of continuing to see Skrtel commit the most ridiculous fouls every week
