Hello Ed's. any truth in the follows rumour?

Liverpool reportedly scouted Hoffenheim midfielder Kerem Demirbay in Champions League action last night.

Turkish-Football suggested "a source close to the player" had told them that Jurgen Klopp's men were set to watch the player in Hoffenheim's 3-3 Champions League draw at home to Lyon.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know about Demirbay being scouted yesterday but certainly Liverpool did show a brief interest in the summer after watching him last season on one or two of the occasions when he was fit. From my perspective it would be an odd one. Liverpool are not short on players in a similar position and Keita has been expected to be the first choice in that advanced central midfield role so it is hard to see where he would fit in - but to be fair the club has also looked at the likes of Ramsey and Barella who also play in central midfield. Additionally, Demirbay has suffered a great deal with injuries over the past couple of years and that would have to be something the club would have to consider.

As an aside the player I would have been watching in that game would have been Houssem Aouar, who really is a talent.}

Thanks Ed002! Houssem Aouar is very similar to Ozil a very good talent hope we can get him!

Glad we are looking at Ramsey tbh. Good player, adds strength In depth. Of course he would want first team action regularly, which will probably put an end to a deal being possible.
Hopefully he sees how our midfield 3 keep rotating this year and he bites.
Milner and Lallana can’t go on forever, unfortunately!

Barella would be awesome. One of the best midfielders in italy and still only 21 years old. Not that i think we need another player in midfield unless we get rid of some first.
