Liverpool close to signing Dani Ceballos as Philippe Coutinho replacement for 22m GBP.

I read in the Independent that Real Madrid were tempted to let him go for a similar amount that they paid for him (18 million euro apparently) . If it was anywhere near that price, it seems like a snip it today's market. I've not seen much of him, has anyone else particularly? From all the hype, it seems worth a pop at that price at least.

Should go for Bernard from shaktor donetsk similar to coutinho get him for 40m will be a supersatr.

It was originally reported by Diario Gol in Spain and then reported again in the Express.

I’d see Ceballos as more of a centre midfielder than attacker like Coutinho.

In that case, Dennis, Klopp would most likely want a midfielder and an attacker, seeing as Coutinho played in both positions. I don't think that would be a bad idea to be honest.

@jonny4pm - his contract is up in the summer I think.

Actually the story appears to have been reported originally by Diario Gol in Spain:

Cebellos just signed last summer.

Hope this us true I think he could really do well with us, similar to coutinho in the sense he had a big move that didn't workout and then had to fight to prove to everyone he is as good as the hype had suggested he would be. 20 mil would be a steal!

I don’t think it’s a bad idea to sign him as he’d strengthen us through the middle as he likes to tackle as well as do the pretty stuff. He’s not had a great time of it in Madrid doesn’t get on with Zidane.

Cebellos was offered to us via his rep but unlikely to go any further according to ed002.

I like this player, especially if the price is anywhere round £20m. Good prospect who's not got the game time at RM, but very well thought of when he was at Betis last season. As Davey Suls said, not a Couts replacement, but a great future prospect who's already on a par with the likes of Lallana, albeit not in the EPL.

Would be an interesting buy if it happens, seen a few games and highlights also and he seems to be quite skillful but can be sloppy at times.

More of a player that will take abit of training and settling in rather than someone who could make an instant impact

However I am not qualified to make that assessment and so my opinion means nothing!

Ed 1 what do you think of Cebellos? Is there any truth to the rumour.

{Ed001's Note - not seen him play, and I don't know what rumour you are referring to. He has been offered to a number of clubs, one of them us.}

Hi Ed. I understand that we may not be interested in Cebellos but could it be the fact we haven't really scouted the player and not have a heap of information on him. As he was offered to us then perhaps he wasn't looked at previously.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I would hope that we would have plenty of information on any player in the top flight of the major 5 leagues in Europe, at the very least. The only issue might be all the background and upbringing etc checks that should be made, but that we as a club seemed to have not bothered with in recent years.}

I assume that LFC would not be interested in a loan without an option to buy.

5ft-10, 150ILBS, he will get eaten alive and spit out in the EPL.

He’s a class player 👍.

I would rather we pay more and get casemiro.

Keita - 5'8" 141 lbs

Coutinho - 5'7" 157 lbs

Just saying, like.

Kante 5’6” - he doesn’t get eaten alive either 🤝.

I don't mind Ceballos, but not as a replacement for Coutinho. There has to be someone else that is more established as a star player to bring in and even attempt to fill Phil's shoes.
