Massive changes to LFC transfer approach! | Summer spending already underway with £34m bid for Kalidou Koulibaly

Breaking news suggests off the back of other recently reported early summer transfer bids, we've struck out once again. This time for world class defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Opposite to our let's wait till the end of the transfer window and then buy half the players we actually need approach, it appears we're now getting things done in a timely fashion. Good.

I've said before, I don't mind mistakes, like selling Lovern and not replacing him, like then waiting the whole January window to address our injury troubles, as long as we learn from them.

Following news we're interested in Napoli's Piotr Zielinski, today it's being reported we've made an informal offer to them of £34million for 29 year old centre back supreme Koulibaly.

Last summer that would have been music to our ears and after a season of wretched injury luck, most notably in defence perhaps it still should be but there's a problem.

We've already started fixing our defence by signing Kabak. Plus in Phillips I think we have a solid third or fourth choice defender and Davies hopefully the same.

Add a returning Gomez and Van Dijk and we're overflowing with centre backs. Matip, sorry, I think you're a gonna. Fantastic player but wholly unreliable.

There's no doubting Koulibaly's credentials although he will be 30 by the start of next season and I'm not fully convinced it still makes sense to sign him.

I'd be tempted to move on not only Matip but Gomez as well and for the same reasoning of repeated injuries. It may then be better to sign a CB in their mid twenties.

Not a rookie but someone with proven top level talent. Crucially they'd have more playing years ahead of them than Koulibaly. However, someone who fits that bill and Koulibaly - now we're talking.

What say you Nesters? Should we still be looking at Koulibaly and is he alone enough to return our defence to the awesomeness we want.
