Hi Eds, I read through the page and even searched for an answer. I saw that Klopp is looking for a Emre Can replacement, a Jorginho type player rather than a defensive midfielder. I was just wondering are Liverpool still looking for a Coutinho replacement in our midfield or a Sturridge replacement covering our front three? Feel like those areas need to be addressed too with their departures.

{Ed002's Note - The club are not looking for a forward but are keen on adding to the midfield.}

Ings and Solanke are decent enough stand ins for Firmino.

I was more thinking of cover for Mane and Salah on the wings, rather than cover for Firmino.

{Ed002's Note - As has been discussed before I would not rule out a move for Draxler - and there has been interest shown in Lemar in the past but the price is through the roof.}

I'd be very pleased with draxler or lemar.

My opinion for what it’s worth is, that’ll we’ll bring in 2 keepers. Because Mignolet will want to be a number one again after losing out with his long term battle with Karius. Ward now needs a permanent move to fully establish himself as a premier league standard keeper, which I think he is. Can see a Butland, Timo Horn standard keeper come in, pressuring Karius for No 1 shirt. Another Manninger type as 3rd choice thus allowing us to loan out the very promising Grabara. Bogdan will probably be difficult to shift permanently so could see him loaned out. Wouldn’t surprise me to see no additions in defence unless anybody was to leave. Would expect to see a midfielder signed to play the holding position, Jorginho would be nice, or wouldn’t be surprised at all if Can actually resigns. Keita obviously is coming in to play in there also. Arguably probably leaves us overloaded in midfield, but Henderson and Lallana do unfortunately look unlikely to play a full season without injury issues. Don’t see a striker being signed, more likely a inside forward/ winger/ attacking midfielder, someone versatile enough to get plenty of game time whilst not replacing Mané Firmino Salah. So would imagine Lemar, Draxler, Pulisic or Martins. Sturridge if he can can be convinced will be kept, because he really does give us a goal scoring threat from the bench in the difficult days, like Swansea away. This would also allow Solanke and maybe even Ings a loan move. Origi could be sold on if a buyer can be found. Markovic and Flanagan to leave as well.

Thanks Ed002,
I imagine a holding midfielder, a attacking midfielder and a winger would be the average expectancy for Liverpool this summer. A lot of people seem to think defensive reinforcements will happen too but I just don't see it.

{Ed001's Note - it is, as I keep saying, a deep lying playmaker, Keita and a right back that are the priorities.}

With you there, Ed. We need a RB to help TAA esp. if Clyne leaves and Gomez goes to CB cos Klavan may be gone.

Hi Ed001, just catching up on posts mate, a deep lying playmaker, Keita and a RB are priority so if Draxler was to also arrive he would be a luxery or a bonus?

{Ed001's Note - bonus.}
