Hi All,

rarely able to offer any transfer info, however i have heard it from someone at work, who is friends with someone from within the Crystal Palace staff (tenuous i know) but that we are very much interested in Loftus-Cheek.

obviously this is we are interested in him not we are signing him, i doubt chelsea would want to sell to us!

but just passing on what i've heard!

Thanks for passing on the info. I can’t imagine it happening to be honest.

Why do you say that salah he was considered one of the best young prospects a few years ago!

Chelsea have stunted his growth, but the talent is still their
, and of all the managers to unlock potential it’s Klopp.

I for one wouldn’t be upset if we let gruijic go and brought in Loftus-Cheek as a decent squad player.

Loftus-Cheek is a lot like Lallana in some respects. He plays a slightly deeper midfield position, but like Lallana he takes too long on the ball, twisting and turning.

However, he's young enough to be coached into releasing the ball earlier. Can't see it unless we are having a major overhaul. Keita is coming, and Ceballos is the primary target! For this to happen as well, you'd imagine that Grujic, Lallana and Can are off!

I suppose that is entirely possible though! Cheers for sharing Southern Red!

Southern Red, he's just not good enough for our level in my opinion mate, right or wrong I just don't see him doing well with us. Having said that, he is still young enough to adapt to our style of play and should he join us he'd get my full support I just hope it doesn't go ahead. But who am i? I was against Robbo signing and look how that turned out. Thanks for the info SR.

Salah i agree he isn't on a level to play week in week out, but I see him as the equivalent of Solanke.

isn't worthy of a starting position by any means but if he is hungry and applies himself in the surroundings of Klopp i fully believe he could be an asset to us!

but appreciate your opinion!

Viva la liverpool!

Im a fan of loftus-cheek, although not sure he'd leave Chelsea for another side he wouldn't probably be first choice for. granted better chance of breaking in and getting game time probably at us as is but would be surprised. Would take him as a good squad option as well as a lot of potential to improve to potential starter. solid prem experience and still 22.

Wouldn't be devastated if it wasnt true but would certainly take him.

Dream summer for me would be fekir, cebellos, koulibaly, sessegnon and oblak. hence the word dream though. oblak no chance id imagine but id take butland.

I sidetracked anyways haha cheers for info TSR!

I haven't watched enough of him to know but an Ed stated back in April that he is lazy and doesn't do enough running off the ball. This would concern me because if his attitude isn't right then it doesn't matter how talented he is, he won't be a good fit.

I’m a big fan and hope it’s true.

Phil agree hence why I said if he actually got his head down and worked hard for the team then I’d be happy to see him in red, he needs someone to ground him and develop him.

Whichever Ed said that Phil is totally correct. We have a team of passionate players willing to play their hearts out to win a game (mostly) he just doesn't fit that mould, he is indeed a lazy player.

I mean been under Klopp, that could change? who knows, I'd like to think if he joined as TSR says, he could get his head down and sort it out but it's a big risk for a team like ours.

We need players willing to give it their all, Keita is another fine example, he always gives 100% on the pitch, 50% in a team like ours is no good. We thrive on pressurising other teams because of our work rate, there's no place for lazy buggers.

Just my opinion of course, I mean if people rate him then fair enough, each to their own :) .

So loftus is not good enough? But a few foreign names that you've barely seen play are good enough for the premier league? With zero experience?

Barely seen play Red7? I've seen Keita play loads of times mate, I've watched them tons of times over the course of the past 2 seasons so I think I have a right to call it when I say Keita is a special talent and usually gives 100%.

Sure he hasn't played in this league yet but he's made for Klopps system which you will see come next season. He will hit the ground running there's no doubt about it. He brings passion, hard work and quality football, this is what our team is about is it not? all season we've seen it, him adding to the ranks is just improving us in a position which needs to be improved dramatically.

I have also seen plenty of Loftus, and to me, no he's far from good enough, he's the opposite of what we want/ have. It's got nothing to do with 'foreign names' it's about who's the right fit for our current setup and he's not a right fit.
