Already at Anfield, of course, is Scotland captain Andy Robertson - rated the finest full-back in the world by many, and valued at more than £50m in the unlikely event he was ever to be sold.
Meanwhile another Scot - Aaron Hickey, once of Hearts and now of Bologna - is expected to make a £20m+ move to Arsenal after a strong season in Serie A. The London side already has former Celtic man Kieran Tierney in their ranks.
Why are we so good at producing full-backs? Many amateur footballers will be familiar with the belief that the weakest players play at full-back - "you're left-back - in the dressing room", goes the old joke.
But that would be to overlook a proud heritage of Scots in the position, including greats such as Maurice Malpas, Sandy Jardine and Danny McGrain.
Maybe we simply appreciate, in the helter-skelter of our national game, there are few sights better than a full-back steaming up the wing, past his opponents on the attack... or steaming into his opponent to win back the ball, when defending.
With its mix of grit, athleticism and artistry, it's the perfect Scottish position. Long may we continue to produce its greatest proponents.
