Steve Nicol has been a successful player in his playing days both at club and country. Once a building-labourer, Nicol made his career at Liverpool after signinig as a 19 year old.
He played with some of the most legendary Scotsmen to ever play at Anfield. By virtue of his experience, it is imperative that he will talk about things that are not merely rumours and gossip when it comes to new transfers.
Steve Nicol has advised Liverpool that they need someone to provide support to Van Dijk at the back, especially now that Joe Gomez broke his leg.
“I wouldn’t mind him at Liverpool alongside Van Dijk, I think that would be a great pairing.”
-Steve Nicol on Toby Alderweireld
As you see, the Scot is a fan of Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, who now has a £25 million release clause in his contract. In today’s market, whoever can convince him to join will be getting a huge bargain. Should Liverpool consider Nicol’s suggestion.
