May be just me, but apart from a new GK I don't think we need many additional signings. The midfield is saturated, defense is well covered, and you have the likes of Solanke, Origi, Lallana, Wilson, etc. that can plug in in the attack if needed. With Keita coming in, do we really need a Fekir type player?

I haven't seen loads of fab and Keita but we need someone with real attacking vision who can play from deep as coutinio did. If our new boys are capable then I agree. We don't need anyone. I think Karius is a decent keeper and if we're not going to break the bank on allison or oblak I don't see the point in spending 30/ 40 mil on butland etc. We have a great team and I can't wait for the season to start.

I'd be inclined to use origi as a winger with solanke as 2nd choice cf.

Agreed Hendo. I would hope that with the price we paid for Keita he can fill that Coutinho type role, with Hendo and Fabinho bossing the midfield behind him. Our attack did flourish when couts left though. Excited for the season.

{Ed002's Note - Keita is certainly not moving to Liverpool to replace Pipco.}

For ED002, it must be like discussing quantum physics at 3am outside the Grafton on a Tuesday morning after a singles night.

I’ve eaten pot noodles with more footballing knowledge than you lot.

I have to disagree . I think a top drawer keeper is more vital than a creative mid . Henderson can be pushed forward more as he was under Rodgers and be very effective. Plus we have ox to come back and lallana . I just see a keeper as far more important.
Look at de gea for United. How offer does he carry them.

Kemlynroad, you’re so insightful. Ed002 Keita is a box to box midfielder, yes? Obviously not like for like with pipco but he’ll fill that role in the midfield in terms of playmaking and attacking threat, no? If you bring a Fekir type, who loses a spot? Fabinho? Hendo?

{Ed002's Note - I am sorry but Keita is simply not a replacement for Coutinho.}

Emre, are you saying Loris can't carry us? have a word mate :P we are pushing for a new keeper, but if Klopp can't get the man he wants, I'd rather not panic buy, Im not sure Alisson is the answer, can't someone convince Courtois how sunny Blackpool can be this time of year.

Coutinho played from deep?
