#PremierLeagueStories: #MarkLawrenson tells #JurgenKlopp to pay ‘big money’ for Wolves captain #ConorCoady #WWFC #WolvesFC

Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes Wolves captain Conor Coady is a ‘ready-made’ replacement for Virgil van Dijk.
The Premier League champions will be without star defender van Dijk for the foreseeable future after he suffered a serious knee injury in the 2-2 draw with Everton.
A number of players have been suggested as possible replacements for van Dijk, including Coady, and Lawrenson believes Wolves’ ever-present skipper is a good shout.
“I would think Virgil will be out for the season,” Lawrenson told the Argus. “I think it’s a write-off because you’ve got to get match fit and that’s almost impossible nowadays because they don’t play reserve team football.

“If Liverpool are going to pay big money for somebody in January, they want absolutely ready-made. Conor Coady has had loads of shouts and he is a very good organiser who has played lots of games in the Premier League.”
Coady, who is a lifelong Liverpool fan and came through their academy, will always have a soft spot for the Reds but he delighted Wolves supporters with his response to a wind up from Jamie Carragher recently.
Speaking to Coady after Wolves had beaten Leeds last week, a straight-faced Carragher said: “Obviously you won’t be aware as you’re playing tonight but Jurgen Klopp has had his Champions League press conference and he’s mentioned you and two other players who could be a replacement for Virgil van Dijk. Would that come into your thinking?”
Carragher was of course joking but Coady wasn’t to know and laughed it off live on Sky Sports.

“I can’t believe you’ve just put this on me here,” he said. “Not at all, I love playing for this football club. We’ve just beat Leeds in an amazing game – so no!”
But the connection is likely to keep being made with Coady now a full England international and playing some of the best football of his career.
What’s important for Wolves is that Coady has only recently committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new five-year contract.
