Malick Thiaw would prefer to stay with Schalke than transfer to Liverpool.
“Of course you’re happy when big clubs are after you, but it was actually clear to me that I would stay at Schalke,” he told Schalke TV.
Thiaw is 19-years-old and is one of many players linked to Liverpool to solve our central defensive crisis.
Schalke are in the relegation spots in Germany, but Thiaw is close to a regular spot and clearly believes this is something he won’t get at Liverpool – which is true – but only when Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez return!
He’d likely have six months to tie down a spot, in fact – but there we go.
Despite some strange leaks you may have heard, Liverpool will be in the market for a CB this winter.
It would be ridiculous if we were not, especially given the fact we looked light in the area BEFORE the season-ending injuries to our starting pair.
Our choice at EOTK is probably Dayot Upamecano, but we’re open to suggestions.
