Sebastian Coates was at Anfield on Saturday to watch Liverpool beat Bolton 3-1. The 20-year-old giant Uruguay defender is thought to be on the verge of signing for Liverpool from Nacional before Wednesday’s transfer deadline.
It is thought that Coates has undergone a medical already at Liverpool ahead of his £7million move but after the match against Bolton, Kenny Dalglish was asked about this transfer and as always, he gave nothing away.
“When we have something to say then we’ll tell everyone at the same time,” said Dalglish.
Bolton’s consolation goal on Saturday came from an error by captain Jamie Carragher and I am hearing some fans already saying that it is time to drop Carragher now and start playing Agger alongside Coates. Is this talk a bit too premature? Will Coates walk straight into the Liverpool starting lineup?
