Would like to see another centre half brought in if Ake has been purchased primarily as a Laporte back-up. Personally can't see any reason why Ake can't play alongside Laporte for me, he seems as two-footed a player as any. However, if we do bring in a top defender I won't complain. Whoever it is needs to be experienced enough (and of course of the requisite quality) to fit straight in and start performing, can be a tall ask I appreciate.
As it stands for me - Laporte, Ake, Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi. Wouldn't be averse to Stones getting the opportunities to move above Fernandinho in the pecking order with Ferni stepping up into midfield.
