I've wanted to start a conversation for some times about the centerbacks we have at our disposal. I think we are heading for a similar decline to the one that took us from a side with the best attacking fullbacks in the EPL to Tripper and Aurier. Toby Alderweireld has a three year contract so is probably senior Centerback, but his decline is palpable. We let Jan Vertonghen leave but haven't come close to replacing his footballing class or left foot. Sanchez has a deal that takes him to 2024 and Eric Dier has a new deal that takes him also to 2023-2024. Cater-vickers and Foyth the presumptive young players don't seem able to put pressure on the incumbents. That said when I look around the league I think we could all find players both younger and with a higher ceiling than Dier. We have been linked to Kim Min-jae a 23yr old who has not played out of Asia. He is clearly a speculative punt. However I really think we need a high end ready made player now. White at Brighton for homegrown for me. Whomever it is its a problem that needs fixing NOW, not left to fester as we did with the fullbacks.
