Liverpool need to eye Nacho as Van Dijk’s defensive partner

Liverpool have made an impressive, 100% start to the Premier League campaign, stating their bid to reigning champions Manchester City that they have a fight on their hands this season. 

Jurgen Klopp heavily invested in his team over the summer and that spending spree looks to have paid off, with the league’s biggest spenders siting top of the Premier League, albeit after four games.

Liverpool look a completely different threat to last season and with their deadly front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino continuing their good form into this season, they really do have the potential to do something great this year.

The downfall with Liverpool though always threatens to be their defence and despite the emergence and growth of Joe Gomez, a centre-back with the quality of Nacho Fernandez could be a desirable transfer for the Reds.

Fernandez, (who is valued at £31.5 million on Transfermarkt) continues to play a big part in all things good at Real Madrid but despite winning the Champions League three times in a row, the Spaniard and Real Madrid alike continue to play second fiddle to Barcelona in the league, something that could inspire a change of scenery for Fernandez.

Liverpool are most certainly a team on the rise and next to Virgil Van Dijk in the heart of defence, not many Premier League teams could compete with a back-line that strong and physical.

The 28-year-old played 42 games for Madrid last season, which proves his class and worthiness even to a team as good as Real Madrid. He is good on the ball, has pace to recover and is your typical modern-day centre-back that likes to pass the ball around the back, building up play.

Liverpool have to sign Fernandez… Agreed?
