Torres wants away, exit not likely till Jan/ next summer if things do not improve. Much interest from Spain with Barcelona keen to bring Villa and Torres together. Hleb may be part of a deal?

Very strong rumour that Torres has flown out to Barcelona to sign a 4 year contract worth 150K a week to him. The Reds get 28.5M cash, no other player involved.

For all the Aguero Rumour, they need to stop.

At Least 35 Million is needed for him and i'm At. Madrid Told Chelsea to do one and they offered Around 30m.

Maybe January. Still doubt it even then

It's silly really.

If a striker is not signed tomorrow a lot of people will be very disappoint by the looks of how many rumours are being said here.

I hope one is signed tomorrow but IMO hopefully just a Loan Deal till January.

The real Worry is Liverpool being sold, and hope to god it isn't another Pair of Yonks like we have now :-(

We do need another striker of quality Yes! but will we sign one this Transfer window? I doubt it. (If we Do i'll Eat my words) i'm not very positive about all the Rumours being said mainly because the situation at LFC isn't the greatest at the moment. I just hope we have a good enough season to keep Torres and Gerrard and get Sold to a Good Investor.

Can't Wait for January if we get sold though!

anyways Down to rumours.

Striker situation -

Ryan Babel has been "promised" a striker role this season by Roy Hodge so that's another reason i think there won't be a striker signed tomorrow but Ngog is injured so Just have to wait and see - Carlton Cole is a possibility But i hope not (I don't rate him much)
Mario Gomez is also a possibility too and his adviser has said he could be interested (Could be)

Personally I think that we don't need a striker. We got Kuyt, Babel and N'Gog to cover Torres. All we need now is a winger and a left back. My priorities are Konchesky and either Ashley Young or Shaun-Wright Phillips.

Quick Question for our beloved Ed:
Do you think more than 1 deals could be done by 6pm tomorrow?

It's a Shane that we lost out on Huntelaar. The guy was class. {editor's note - yes more than one deal can easily be done by 6pm.}

Liverpool face competition on deadline day in the race to sign Dutch international Ricky van Wolfswinkel, the 21-year-old striker, who can also play as an attacking midfielder, has been linked with a string of clubs in the past month, with Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson one of the favourites to bring the player to the Premier League.
Newcastle have joined the Reds in the chase for Van Wolfswinkel and are set to bid £8 million for the player.
Less than 24 hours until the close of the transfer window, both sides face a battle if they want to land Van Wolfswinkel on deadline day.

I would love to see llorente playing at Liverpool. But, just a quick point to everyone about athletic bilbao, the club fernando llorente plays for. IF Liverpool were to buy llorente, they would not be swapping him for emiliano insua. Simply because the club ONLY buys and produces players from the basque region in spain. Now unless i'm mistaken, insua is from argentina. So unless he has some ancestry from that region this won't happen. But you never know

As a previous comment on a striker suggested Kevin Doyle. Not a bad choice. He holds up the ball well allowing attaccking players to get invovled and always works his socks off with few goals thrown in.

bel if you would approve of signing Kevin
unbel if not the case

Oh why the hell not, can't say ive heard him linked to us
but according to several news sources he is still a free agent at the moment(this late in the window?? ), so love him or hate him could mr. eidur gudjohnsen be coming to us? surely he must be looking for a team. . .

A bit more striker info for us all to chew on, as some of you may know, i have been checking up on schalke 04 striker jefferson farfan having come across some sketchy rumours linking us with him, and i posted some early info on schalke signing wide man ciprian delac, thus adding to their forward line, then of course to add to that they have now signed ibrahimovic, and to add to that they have signed a certain mr huntelaar as well! here's what he said:'It's true that I never wanted to leave Milan that changed when Zlatan Ibrahimovic came over from Barcelona I then realised that it is better that I leave. It's important that I move so I can play regular football.

I view Schalke 04 as a very attractive club. They regularly compete for the title. It's a great challenge for me to help this club become champions.'

German paper Bild says that Schalke have agreed a 14 million fee with Milan for the Netherlands striker.

any way in a nutshell it seems that schalke are making some big changes, and because of this could it mean that the farfan rumour is true after all? ?

what do you think mr.ed and all you fellow reds fans?

Ok don't know who this person could be but i was out for a few drinks on deansgate in manchester today and there was a white cadilac escalade with v.d in the headrest pulling up outside the hilton on deansgate in manchester. One was a black guy looking a bit like el hadji diouf ha ha not him though but the same kind of style as him if any of you have seen him about and the driver was a slim white guy. I know that they or atleast one were footballers because they had that swagger the same age range. Who has the enitials V.D. Surely not vander Vaart. How could he have transport here so soon. so who begins with the innitials V.D? and where would this person be going? just reporting what i seen today.

I've just thought if we had no money why would Roy waste what money we had on a new midfield player knowing he deffo needs a striker it doesn't add up so on this basis Roy has money for a striker or a winger.what you think ed
{Editor's note - You have Torres, Pachecco, Juyt, Jovanovic and Ngog up front and every good team needs a good midfield and I think that is why he bought a midfielder}

Hello fellow reds just a rumour of my girlfriends mate she is the tour guide of lfc, they have been told to dress smart tomorrow as there won't be tours going on in anfield and that there will be a press conference regarding the signing of 4 players! i assume two of them will be konchesky and meireles but who will the others be?? She said she doesn't know but her boss said should be a big day at anfield tomorrow! heres hoping she also told her when torres signed she was in a room with him at anfield 2 days before he was unveiled, whicj i thought was bull but she was right then!

Kun Aguero just seen kissing his team-mates goodbye, running of the pitch, got changed and then boarded a flight to the John Lennon Airport. Come on Liverpool fans, you know as we as I do that there is a 0% chance of Kun Aguero signing for us tomorrow unless there is a Manchester City style takeover and we sign Aguero like they signed Robinho!

Pssst. The reason the konchesky deal has not been announced is because they are hoping to announce a big signing on Tuesday. If the deal falls through then konchesky will be paraded as the last signing.

To The person who wrote

Koncheskey will be our last and only signing. I'm not sure hodgson will get the signing of a striker by tomorrow. I think the most of you's are leading yourselves to dissapoitment because of the fact we didn't know about meirles. I doubt this will happen again, although i do believe we will most likely get a striker in the january transfer window.


But you know we will get a striker in january.
no one knows whats behind the scene until tomm .

Ever Banega should be made a priority signing the kids gonna be mentioned in the same bracket as Xavi, Pirlo & Alonso in coming years. Arda Turan would also be a excellent signing the lads genius and a Liverpool fan. Come on Roy pull your socks up.

Guys, please never under estimate liverpool football club,

Ask yourselves the question what kept torres and gerrard at the club the state its currently in?

Why would hodgson take on a club that is spiralling out of control when he was happy at fulham who are running smoothly?

we invested in mereiles recently which was completely out the blue TRUE!

something tells me that something huge is on the horizon, (takeover plus players very soon)

BELIEVE!

Unless woy has another name hidden somewhere which one you think well sign ed? Can we afford Gomez wages? Doubt it also if he was coming on loan that wouldn't have to be finalised tomorrow right?

Tottenham have just made enquiry about pienaar . Could this see bentley to lfc i hope so. Gomez is a player i don't want to see in liverpool shirt i think he is too much of a gamble. Roy will sign a premiership striker with proven experience. Does not have to be a prolific striker as we have torres for that he is looking for a foil to torres someone who will take all the attention away from him. I personally would go for caroll or bent not a hope cole will come in my opinion would offer nothing different to us might as well bring hyypia back and play him up along torres probably a better striker of the ball haha For caroll hit believe unbelieve for bent

Ed out of all realistic strikers we could get who would be your favorite? ?

Roy is keeping everything close to his chest. .its alot harder to get any info now, than it was when rafa was with us, which in a way is a good thing.
we know he is in the market for a striker and he will get one, but who?
i heard last week we had agreed a fee for a striker, still not sure who it was and im presuming now it either fell through or was complete and utter b.s.
one thing is for certain, its not toivonen.
bayern will not let gomez go for the fee we have heard, and plus we couldnt afford any more.
it could be carlton cole although personally i don't think it is, because grant wants to keep him.
i was talking to a lad on a forum (and he is usually spot on) and he told me it was eidur gudjonsen, but im starting to think he was been fed carp on that one because it appeared on another website that's not so reliable. . so im bracing myself for someone that we havnt heard mentioned, or mabee you lads have heard something? ?

==========Merieles==Gerrard==========
===A. Sanchez===J.Cole====Jovanovic====
==============Torres===============

Sub: Kuyt, Babel, M.Gomez, Skrtel, Maxi, Darby etc

. .but much more realistic is just:
Konchesky
M.Gomez(Loan)

That clears that up then - Aguero isn't signing for us.

Unless he has a buy out clause in his contract which reads. .

"must play one last game for us on 30th August before flying to UK to sign for Liverpool by 6pm following day". . and Liverpool must pay at least 40mil. .

Koncheskey will be our last and only signing. I'm not sure hodgson will get the signing of a striker by tomorrow. I think the most of you's are leading yourselves to dissapoitment because of the fact we didn't know about meirles. I doubt this will happen again, although i do believe we will most likely get a striker in the january transfer window.

Dzeko to liverpool? i highly doubt it. didn't man city have a 20m + bid turned down for him? his release clause is around the 35m mark; certainly out of our range.

or we could do what everyone suggests and sell our 'deadwood' and get about 25m for them. lol laughable rumours

Liverpool had 40m to spend including player sales(Cavaleiri, Mascherano, Itanje, El Zhar etc)Some of these still have to leave .
25m of that is gone on players.
11m of the 15m left to be spend on Farfan and Koncheskey.Mario Gomez will gign on a year long loan.He is out of favour at Bayern Munich and they want him off the wage bill.

Team:
Reina
Johnson-Carragher-Agger-Koncheskey
Gerrard-Meireles
Farfan-Cole-Jovanovic
Torres
Subs:Jones, Skretl, Insua, Poulsen, Lucas, Kuyt, Gomez

ED - was just thinking, the Merieles deal went through yesterday for 11.5 million, everybody is saying this money is coming out of the Mascherano sale. But surely this is not the case, as we have only just sold Masch today, therefore would not of recieved the money for Merieles before we signed him. So it would of been a gamble buying him then to find out the Masch deal falls through last minute, so does this mean we still have all the 18 mill from the Masch deal left to spend?

Thanks

Newcastle are in the same position as Liverpool regarding the asset stripping of their club and will only buy players that they can pay instalments for. This means when the club is eventually sold or placed in receivership the outgoing owners are not responsible for the transfer fee. This being the case newcastle have rebuffed liverpools offer of a swap deal involving babel or Lucas and are insisting on 15 million thus pricing Liverpool out of the deal but at least 3 other premium clubs are interested.

ED can you give me your opinion on the following :-
Carroll to Liverpool?
Pienaar to Liverpool as he has 1 year left on his contract & a swap involving Babel may be more appealing?
Am I right in thinking that we have the Mascherano money left to spend as Meireles & Konchesky deals were done before Masch signed tonight. I'm thinking that money wouldn't of been transfered untill deal was signed.

Liverpool news:

Roy is not looking to sell anyone - apart from Plessis, El Zhar and Itandje, but no-one is interested. Their agents are going all across Europe to try and find a club but no-one wants them.

So don't expect anyone to leave. (Insua possibly, but no-one seems to know what's going on with him)
Konchesky is going to be a Liverpool player, along with a striker/ left winger, maybe even both!

Wolfswinkel, N'Zogbia, Toivonen, Cole, Ruiz, Turan have all been enquired about, there were some others but names were not given/ don't know who they are.

Squad:
GK - Reina, Jones*
RB - Johnson*, Darby*
CB - Carragher*, Skrtel
CB - Agger, Kyrgiakos
LB - Konchesky*, Aurelio, Insua*?
RW - Maxi, Kuyt
CM - Gerrard*, Meireles
CM - Lucas, Poulsen, Spearing
LW - Jovanovic, LW
CF - Cole
ST - Torres, Ngog, ST

"LFC TO SELL SWEEPER"

Ive heard some fantastic rumours on these sites and to add my own, "my old man is a dustman and was on his round today collecting the bins. He was emptying rubbish from purslows house and out of his bin fell a copy of a fax from everton accepting a bid of 12mil + the LFC's top cleaner for Rodwell"
The reds will be sad to see her leave after three months but having pinched rodders from under the ginger del boys nose they will feel perkier than uncle albert on a jolly boys outing!

YNWA.
(hope we don't lose dalle valle for PK and only allow him out on loan!) A winger, striker and a young prospect (conner wickum) in next 24 hours would be great but not gunna hold my breath!

Mario Gomez fits the bill for a Premier League striker his big, good on the ball no nonsense player. He would be great next to Fernando Torres lets hope ROY can wheel some magic and get him on a permanent deal.

LFC IN
lfc will buy jan huntarlaar for 15million(26mill left) not worth 15 based on his ac milan form maybe 10 and ten rising to 15 based on goals
parker for 12 million(14million left) piece of crap west ham promised to not sell
turan for 8 million(6million left) he is fine
konchesky for 4 million (2million left) i like him don't know why everyone thinks he is so bad. Unlike insua his crosses get over the first man
i did not know it was possible to blow 40 mill on this much crap.
next the person who bought babel for 16 would get a one way trip to an insane asylum
4 mill for el zhar he i worth about .5 mil
but lets say some how they get that 40 mill
you could buy one of these
aguero

What are the thoughts about poaching players from City? Are they still trying to trim their squad with the deadline approahcing? Would they even consider selling to us? Bridge, SWP, (maybe Ade) options?
Not sure how I feel about Gomes being linked. He was dominant for Stuggart, but struggled immensly for Bayern and Germany thereafter. Season loan would be better than no striker coming in, but would not want to pay anything greater than 15M for him (which is probably out of the question since Bayern got him for around 30M).

All this talk of 'deadwood' being sold (itanje, plessis, el zhar etc. ) is good to hear, however I highly doubt it'll happen. There's less than 24hours 'til the window shuts and it's unlikely we could wrap up over 3 deals in that time. Judging by the media, (I know it's a highly unreliable source but they do post stories on players that have current interest) there has been approach for any of these players or any of the other 'deadwood' being touted.

Ed what do you think?

Ps. I'd love to see Connor Wickham and Andy Carroll at the club. Bel if yes Unbel if no.

Bryan Ruiz targeted by Liverpool: Roy Hodgson wants £12.5m FC Twente hitman - even if Fernando Torres stays
By Mel Henderson
Last updated at 1:02 PM on 6th July 2010
Comments (10) Added to My StoriesNew Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is lining up a £12.5million move for Costa Rican scoring sensation Bryan Ruiz.

Hodgson sees Ruiz, who netted 24 times last season for Dutch champions FC Twente, as the perfect replacement for Fernando Torres if he quits Anfield.

But even if the Spanish star stays put Hodgson is keen to get 24-year-old Ruiz on board.
One in, one out? Roy Hodgson has lined up Bryan Ruiz (right, front) regardless of the future of Fernando Torres

Hodgson watched him on several occasions last season with a view to signing him for Fulham.

But he would have needed to smash Fulham's transfer record and was forced to concede Ruiz was outside their price range.

Ruiz has seen his value treble since ex-England boss Steve McClaren snapped him up just a year ago for five million euros from Belgian club Ghent.
An eye for a player: Roy Hodgson
His goals helped Twente to their first-ever Dutch league crown and earned McClaren a move to the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg.

McClaren would like to sign Ruiz, who is also interesting Spanish clubs Seville and Villarreal, for a second time but the asking price is too high for the Germans.

I have been saying for a long time that i was informed that 5 first teamers will be signed, one being Aguero. We have signed players so if SA comes in tomorrow my source was telling the truth, mind you i was also informed the sale of the club was complete and this was two months ago or so.
I am hoping that good news will arrive shortly in regard to the takeover as i truely do feel things have been going on!

Here's another interesting striker related article, it relates to mario gomez, but before you read it , here is another interesting bit of info, it is the fact that our man king roy has had his eyes on mr gomez since as far back as 2008! , maybe now roy manages the best team in england it will be enough to lure the striker who he rates very highly. Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez is planning to decide on a move to Liverpool today.
Reds boss Roy Hodgson has been looking to boost his striking options and has targeted the 25-year-old as transfer deadline day looms.

Gomez is one of the most talented strikers in Germany.

Hatfuls of goals for Stuttgart, including 32 in 42 games two seasons ago, earned him a 30 million move to Bayern.

And despite being in and out of the Bayern side last season, he still managed 11 goals.

He appeared for Germany at the Word Cup and scored in a recent friendly against Denmark.

Gomez is valued at 15M-20M. what do you think ed and all?

Liverpool will sign mario Gomez befor the end if the transfer window , very reliable source! Roy kept his cards close to his chest with miereles looks like he is doing the same with gomez I have been told it's a region of £16 I am also told the there could be a possible move for Connor wickham but I imagine that depends on Roy bringing in a winger or not

Meireles is set to become a kop favorite. masch will be forgotten by the birmingham game. RH has done some really good buisness there and konchesky is by no means a poor signing. just because we aint got the money doesn't mean this season is gonna be a disaster.

The reason Gerrard and Torres stayed is because Roy, tomorrow. Is going to unveil his biggest signing of the summer. Who will most likely be Aguero according to my sources at 28.5m. Koncheskey at 4m will also be brought in tomorrow. A new left winger is to be bought in the January transfer window.

No Juve desperately tried to sign him but couldn't coff up the cash, I think the trouble is Wolfsberg are a very rich club and don't need the money and the players Juve where offering Wolfsberg didn't want. . . . but they do want Babel. . but to tell you the truth it seems every one is convinced that Gomes is coming or could be Ella who knows but I am sure something is going down in Germany. . .can any one else shed some light?

Just heard from a close source to the club. that Gomez will sign on season long loan with view to perminate move. . also they said david bentley has been intrested in liverpool and is on his way for a look around melwood and anfield. . but not sure deal will go through this summer (maybe January) also. Diego Forlan £17m will be the "BIG" name striker even though Gomez is signing on loan which probably suggest he won't sign on permante basis and finally Larry Ellison will buy liverpool for £495m and he has net worth of £27billion. . Thanks Lfc Wizard

Guys I posted on here that we are trying to sign Edin Dzeko the source where my Spanish friends, I am sure they are right but who is it, that we are trying to sign from Germany?? ?? Is it Gomes or Dzeko?? ?? ?? ? There seems to be so many rumours now about Gomes?? ? one thing is for sure I think behind the scenes something is going on in Germany.

Oh and by the way a fascinating article in the Telegraph the other day about Woy having £40m to spend AFTER the Koncheskie and Remieres deals. . . . .if RBS and BARCAP are telling the truth. . .which I am sure they are not! ! I think I am not the only Reds fan on here that distrusts all of our board members. . .yonks or banks. . . . then we will find out in the next 48 hrs. I am sure if Woy had £40m he would use it, if he signs no one or mediocre players then we know the banks are talking carp! Sorry if I sound so skeptical ;(

Been laughing at the Lucas banter on here and must agree with the majority nice guy lots of heart but absolute tripe. id actually be happy if he left for free. Was disapointed to hear today that RH said he doesn't expect him to be going anywhere unless they had a 20 mil bid which would be hard to turn down. Seriously Roy 20 mil who in their right mind would ever bid that lol aye maybe the mancs after all they bought Anderson hes just as bad as him.

No way will we sign Scott Parker and nobody else will either. Simply reason last month west ham owners said they had promised the fans he will not be sold he is an important player and to lose him would be making a step backwards don't want to sell thier best player. After making a statement like that no way could they sell him the fans would be fuming and owners look like right tots.

What are the chances (if there are) of Roy signing him tomorrow before the window closes.

There will be a big name striker signing by tomorrow, i don't have a clue who it will be or where this striker comes from but if you think about it when torres committed his future to liverpool i can't see him of agreeing this without being guarenteed an immpresive striker signing and the club to move forward. . therefore i wouldn't be suprised if there was a striker signed by tuesday at 6 o'clock.
Some Rumours i wouldn't mind becoming facts:
Toivenen
gomez
bent
and ofcourse
aguero

Dissapointing initial interest has hot been followed up
with PSVs Toivenon. He looks very similar to a young RV Nistelrooy. Any one else agree on his similar style.
Lets hope something can be done by tommorow.
Llorente is one gaining credibilty . Carlton Cole would graft but not sure on his real abilty

TO THIS PERSON:

Liverpool will make a 4 million bid for real mardrid midfileder guti.

Guti signed for Besiktas last month so stop wasting our time with idiotic rumours.

SSN reported earlier that we've only enquired about Cole but have no interest in signing him.

Gomez is certainly gathering pace however this will down to the player himself whether he makes the switch.

One of my sources states that we are tracking Trazsponspor's striker Tefilo Gutirrez. Who will cost around 5 million. However my source states that this along with Eidur Gudjohnson will be last resorts.

Fernando Llorente could be the answer but again this is down to the club. They will quickly want to find a replacement and their star man will have to go to the right price.

Still expect Parker or Van Der Vaart by last thing tomorrow.

Carlito knows best.

Ed the Gomez rumours is starting to get some weight in it 'cause even Espn are starting to announce it.

NOw lets just cross our fingers and see what happens. Hopefully another super signing before the transfer window closes.

{Editor's Note: Or perhaps the bid accepted for Gomez was from Spurs?}

You maybe right Ed as Fabiano has signed new deal at his club so no chance on spurs getting him now.But hopefully it's us. Think it's a shame we aint gone for Gyan who sunderland have bid for. He woulda been decent hes a big strong lad

Ed, what do you think about Liverpool signing Gomez? Think he's worth the £30m price tag (Yes i know if we get him, he'll be on loan) but i mean is he worth it, is he that good? He looks the favourite striker to join Liverpool and has said that he wants to join. Now it's up to Roy to sign him, however if we do sign him, he and Konchesky will probably the only signing, no wingers, just them too.

Gomez wants to leave Bayern for Liverpool
Germany international Mario Gomez has expressed his desire to leave Bayern Munich, if reports from Kicker are to be believed.

In recent days, rumours of a potential move to Liverpool have gained momentum, reaching their apex today.

"When a club like Liverpool inquires, their interest cannot be pushed off the table, " his advisor, Uli Ferber allegedly told Kicker.

Gomez is out of favour in Bavaria, and would "just like to play football again", according to Ferber. Liverpool allegedly would like to sign Gomez on a year-long loan spell, and are willing to pay the player's salary.

Gomez, 25, moved to Bavaria last summer for a record fee estimated to be between 30-35m He struggled in his first year in Munich, scoring just 10 goals in 31 appearances.

{Editor's Note: You need to read further down the page - there is lots of discussion about him.}

I think if we sign Gomez on a loan spell then we should look at someone like Eden Hazard. Quality player at 19. .only going to improve and he made Insua look like a right mug last season in Europa League.

"To the PERSON who Said Juan MATA , is signing for liverpool , wheres your source? ?! plus hes set to sign for barca ."

The Mata to Barcelona is just a rumour mate, has been since the end of last season.

On a side note, i doubt that we will sign a winger unless The striker we buy is mario Gomez on loan. Apparently Mascherano was only sold for 22 million, and 11 million has gone towards meireles.

I do hope we invest in a fast winger though, Torres and Babel aside we have one of the slowest teams in the top half of the premier league.

Unfortunatley i doubt that Roy will Buy a winger by tuesday as getting a striker is his top priority. And buying a striker would leave no money available for a winger.

I think that Carlton Cole is the most likely to be signed out of the rumored strikers, but after the quick, shock purchase or Raul Meireles there may be another shock transfer for a striker by tuesday.

Personally i would'nt like to See Carlton Cole at Anfield, Ricky Van Wolfwinkel would be a much better transfer.
And there may be a slight chance of Mario Gomez siging on loan, but certain he will not be bought.

(I think we will get Gomez on loan mate and either buy another striker such as Cole, very unlikely though as i think we will use all the money on a quality winger, Ashley young with p/ a plus cash? ? We never know)

"Mario Gomez has reportedly told Bayern Munich officials that he wishes to leave the club, with a loan spell at Liverpool a possibility."

Konchesky's move is in doubt because of Dalle Valle RH has said its probably a technical hitch BUT Wayne Bridge looks as though he is on the verge of joining Liverpool according to SkyBet, the current odds from SkyBet on Wayne Bridge signing for Liverpool before the transfer window closes are just 1/ 2, which makes it look a very likely deal. Spurs are second favourites to sign Bridge but they are way back at 10/ 1 with SkyBet and it looks as though Bridge moves to Liverpool or stays put.

Trabzonspur striker TEO is linked with a move, with spurs and birmingham interested too.

Big rumour flying around, Liverpool will sign a swiss u21 striker sorry don't know name!

" RH saying Toiletvonen doest fit the profile, that could mean a number of things it could mean he wants a fast skilfull striker or he wants one that can play on the wing and up front or could even mean he isn't as good as he wants."

he means he wants someone to hold up the ball and get time for the midfield to come forward and create goals for torres I think Andy Carroll would be perfect for this as well as being young and able to score goals."

Sum1 was listening to stan collymore on talksport yesterday when they had exclusive commentary on LFC V WBA, that is exactly what he sed, Unless, . . you r stan collymore? :P

Nyway koncheskey deal close and if the deal for A.Sanchez and M.gomez are true this would be fantastic, 2 brilliant players near world class especially a.sanchez who was my fav. player of the worldcup next to ozil. and the person who sed hodgson is an admirer is also correct, he was an analyst on BBC and he kept crediting sanchez, another chilean player who caught the eye. .mark gonzalez.

to be fair gonzo was a great player, rafa knows his stuff when it comes to talent, its just when he gets them he doesn't know what to do>like. .gonzo, crouch, barragan, pacheco, pongolle(houlier but rafa didn't use him), and paul anderson.

The striker RH will sign must not be cup tied for the Europa and that's why he said ola toivonen did not fit the profile, that would also rule out Ricky Van wolfwinkle and a few others, Carlton Cole is the front runner but I'd prefer a real classy striker having said that they have to be back up to Torres and Mainly sign for Europa.

Since I follow the Dutch Eredivise alot, Im going to add a few names who I think would make us improve. I seriously suggest we sign a fast, skillful winger who is able to play on BOTH WINGS. I think depending on the budget, Balazs Dzsudzsak of PSV would be an amazing signing. alternatively, Ibrahim Affelay or Giorginio Wijnaldum are both good players ( although Affelay would cost alot ) Wijnaldum has alot in him but I think is more on the youth side at the moment. I would have loved to see Jermain Lens join Liverpool but he joined PSV. Bryan Ruiz is a decent player, but not high class. Anyway, a late push for Ashley Young would be ideal.

Luis Suarez seems out of question because he is Ajax team captain and I think he would give at least a season or 2 more to the team.

The striker Hodgson wants is Eljero Elia of hamburg - who actually mainly plays on the wing and is fully capable of both positions. He will cost about 10 million.
We will also sign Koncheskey and Matias Fernandez of Sporting Lisbon for 8m

Team:
- - - - - - - - - - Reina- - - - - - - - - -

Johnson- - Carragher- - Agger- - Koncheskey

- - - - - - Gerrard- - -Meireles- - - - - - -

Subs: Jones, Skrtel, Aurelio, Poulsen, Babel, Jovanovic, Kuyt

Ipswish Town's Connor Wickham; he's a boyhood Liverpool fan and cites Fernando Torres as his hero, and despite his young age, the highly-rated striker is already 6ft 4in tall and 14 stone. He is said to be as good as Wayne Rooney was at the same age, but a lot bigger. I implore you Roy SIGN HIM UP before its too late, Its been reported Arsenal, Utd & Spurs are all keen. I know its not protocol for LFC to invest heavily on promise but surely an exeption/ gamble can be made for this lad. £10m is the price being touted for the wonderkid, but maybe installments or even the offer of some of our dead-wood could be appealing to The Tractor Boys? I know we need players for the now but we've already missed out on so much in Walcott, Young, Johnson, Milner, Bale etc. in recent years. Take a leaf out of Mr Wengers book and invest in the future.

I have no clue what striker Roy is going to bring in as it could be anybody. Roy showed with the meireles signing that he keeps his cards close to his chest so i will just wait to 6pm tomorrow for that one.
As for a winger, I feel that roy may go for Balazs Dzsudzsak of PSV as he impressed when watching Toivonen. He is quick, great crosses and his price will not be astronomical. He is very similar to arjen robben. I would prefer someone like Turan or Alexis Sanchez but this guy is more affordable and maybe Roy could convert to right wing and get him scoring goals like Robben did for Bayern last season.

Expect a massive signing by 5pm Tuesday - 'a big big name'.
Maybe some of the proposed takeover money is dripping into Hodgson's hands just in time.
Maybe this was the reason Torres and Gerrard stayed? Could this be Arguero?
Is it possible that due dilligence may have taken place and the takeover is very close? ?

I have reasons to believe (that i am not aloud to say) that liverpool will go in for a last ditch attempt for Luis Fabiano. Roy has been looking at him and he fits his desired "profile" as mentioned in a interview. like the raul meireles deal he is keeping his cards close to his chest to keep interest away from other clubs such as tottenham, ac/ inter milan, man utd and chelsea. not 100% so do not get excited, however if a move is made i expect a player exchange plus 15million, or a straight 15-20million bid. i have also noticed that betting websites have also introduced liverpool into the equation of signing luis along with tottenham today. this is weird as the media have not even touched about a posible move for the striker by liverpool, so either a money making scheme or they know "things" ha ha. all i can say is pray, watch the space and maybe. . .

Roy says that he is looking for a player in the profile of Torres. (Fast, prolific)

Toivonen, Cole, Zamora, Llorente are not anything like him, they play normally behind the striker; link-up man/ target man.

Tbh, I can't really think of anyone who is similar to Torres. Ed, who would you like to bring in, realistically - fee of around £8m - £12m?
{Editor's note - I think C. Cole is most likely}

He is the most improved player in the side because he has gone from being absolutely garbage to being mediocre and could do a job for our neighbours TRANMERE!

" RH saying Toiletvonen doest fit the profile, that could mean a number of things it could mean he wants a fast skilfull striker or he wants one that can play on the wing and up front or could even mean he isn't as good as he wants."

he means he wants someone to hold up the ball and get time for the midfield to come forward and create goals for torres I think Andy Carroll would be perfect for this as well as being young and able to score goals.

It could also be games. . Real Madrid have just announced that they are interested in him, Sky Sports News web site. People need to stop taking everything the manager says at face value! After all it's not only Liverpool fans that hear what RH says in interviews!

'Who do you think Liverpool will sign before tomarrow night ed? {editor's note - a striker and a left winger, I don't know names, just know those are the players we have been trying for. Unfortunately I only know that because of the players we have inquired about rather than ones we are about to inquire about.}'

Who are the ones we have enquired about? I highly doubt we would get two more players aswell, after Konchesky. 1. Not enough time. 2. Not enough funds - probably. 3. Roy is taking his time on finding the right players to help the squad, even though we could do with two more players. {editor's note - there is the time, Meireles deal was done in a couple of hours. We have inquired about Ruiz, Toivonen, N'Zogbia, Wolfwinkel and some other players I can't remember off the top of my head. A couple I had to Google as I had never heard of them as well.}

ATTENTION ALL LFC FANS
Contrary to what he said yesterday, Roy will NOT be signing a new forward.He will, instead, bring in two wingers
My acquiantance who's at the upper echelons at Italian club, Udinese, has confirmed to me that a deal to bring Chilean attacker, Alexis Sanchez, is "nearing" agreement.A formal bid was made late last night.The fee, he believes, will be £16m plus add ons.
The other winger I'm not sure about, but it's gonna be a relatively unknown, my grapevine has.

Id love to see Roy bring in Andy Carroll & Marc Albrighton, these two are going to be world-beaters' scouts honour. Connor Wickham would be a great prospect, although we all know Liverpool wont/ don't gamble on such costly youth. The Fernando Llorente deal we now know to be fictitous, although i think hes exactly the type of player we need. Instead we look to bring in Carlton Cole whos inconsistancy bemuses me, one day dubbed the new Drogba the next HESKEY! Taye Taiwo will sign a pre-contract agreement in January, this is true(Believable). Please stop linking us with Lass Diarra it was Mahamadou we were looking at. I can't see Lucas going anywere for the time being' to my dissapointment. Evar Banega would be my ideal replacement the lads genius and without doubt one of the most technically gifted midfielders around today, the next Xabi Alonso i hear you say? Finally Arda Turan - Yes in know Roy's stated on numerous occassions theres no interest but i think he'd be our perfect no7, with Liverpool being hes dream destinantion anorl.

Liverpool don not need lassana diarra, we already signed poulsen to be a holding midfielder, and he is better stronger and more experienced than lass and for only 4.9m, this is mascherano's replacement meireles is aqua's replacement, and lucas will leave for brazil where he is still respected, his replacement is spearing.DONE we don't need another centre mid we need to sell lucas and our CM pos. will be done. hopefully we sell babel and insua in the next day and sign koncheskey with unfortunately dalle valle going the other way:( but still babel will raise funds.
3 more ins:
koncheskey 4m+DaVa+a.kakanicklic:( (done)
C.Cole 11m(masch money, half for meireles, half for cole)
M.Albrighton6.5(young top winger go back on loan to villa*)

*this would be a perfect deal as we could give him experience back at villa, keep maxi for a year in his prime sell him next year when he's still wanted in spain and argentina and have albrighton ready for the prem.

What do you think ED?

My source tells me that Cole isn't going to happen for the simple fact West Ham want too much money for him. Roy will look elsewhere. He is a secretive man and I think he's keeping this one quiet to put off any potential other bidders. Expect a striker who we haven't been linked with.

Also Parker or Van Der Vaart will sign before deadline day. The initial being the most likely.

- - - - - - - - -

You've misunderstood Roy's use of the word "profile", he doesn't mean it in terms of fame but in terms of playing profile. Hodgson means he wants an all-out striker like Torres, not a second striker like Toivonen, as we already have Kuyt, Gerrard, Cole and Pacheco in that position. I suspect that if we get any striker it will be Llorente or Gomez.

Loan: Gomez/ Huntelaar. I know there is an emergency loan window in the championship and lower leagues but does it count for the premier league ed?

{Editor's Note: Only for goalkeepers.}

Konchesky you all no practically done.

There won't be a def nod or another big because Roy is playing 4-4-2 and ole will play CN maybe.

A winger night cone.

Aguero and Turan are Roys final signings of the window with Ngog(WBA) insua and maxi both (A.Madrid) all leaving. Roys new signings have been Roys long term targets since negotiating deals to keep Stevie & Nando at the club. . So gunna happen, good times ahead, cmon LFC

I'm going to make a prediction. All LFC fans expect a new striker to be signed by 18.00 tomorrow night. So we'll all be salivating enormously for the 'big' signing.

We'll all take a deep breath in, full of excitement, a little like when we were kids at 05.00 Xmas morning and then. . . . . we sign someone who is already labelled a dud.

Out comes the usual 'he's not a signing we should be making', 'Roy's turning us into Fulham', ' we'll be lucky to finish 10th' etc.etc.

I think we need to remember, Rafa turned us into a team who play better with one up top, if Roy sticks with that then he's only going to buy a striker who will take some pressure off Torres and allow him to be rested at frequent intervals without adversely affecting the team.

And this is the key point. We want a striker who has to be a good back up to Torres and will play second fiddle to him. I doubt we have the money for a 'marquee' signing in any event. Our style of play isn't right (at this moment in time) for having one either.

So we have a small amount of money, looking to provide decent back up to Torres. If we all agree that this is the criteria of players we are looking at, then we shouldn't be too disappointed with what we get, and we all assume we are getting one?

And it may just stop the disappointment we all had when we opened a present thinking it was something fab but ended up being something quite wrong! Like my nan one year buying me a United scarf when i was expecting a shirt with Molby on the back! !

RH saying Toiletvonen doest fit the profile, that could mean a number of things it could mean he wants a fast skilfull striker or he wants one that can play on the wing and up front or could even mean he isn't as good as he wants. i also remember RH saying that he wants a striker with similar qualities as Torres which could mean a tall fast skilfull good finisher with head and feet.

I personally want Hulk for 10 to 15 M, or a cheaper option in Ruiz (similar to torres, 6ft, quick, can create from nothing, skillfull and a good finisher)

Reports in Spain this evening suggest Liverpool have agreed a deal to bring Spanish striker Fernando LLorente to Anfield, with full back Emiliano Insua going in the opposite direction.
Reports suggest the deal is worth 11m (£9m), with Insua heading to the Basque club as part of the deal.

abbs

REPLY - WITH RESPECT TO THIS RUMOUR, THE INSUA PART OF THIS DEAL IS MOST PROBABLY WRONG AS ATHLETICO BILBAO ONLY PLAY BASQUE BORN PLAYERS. AS INSUA IS ARGENTINIAN I THINK HIM BEEN INCLUDED IN A DEAL FOR LLORENTE IS NOT POSSIBLE.

Liverpool will sign Konchesky within 24 hrs.

This will be great because Lfc are now solid in the left back position with Aurelio and Miriles capable of playing left back.

Carlton Cole looks like a possible Lfc signing. He has all the atributes to play along side Torres especially when playing against defenders that use rough house tactics.
C.Cole will sign for 11.5m.

Shorty

{Editor's Note: Many of the players you have listed for sale have been told that they can leave and their agents have been out knocking on doors to see which clubs may be interested. And that is the problem - there is not much interest. I don't expect Lucas to leave but there is a chance we could end up paying up the contracts of a couple of these players to release them. Certainly as we move in to the last couple of days of the transfer window, their value may already have vaporised.}

As well as confirming the signing of Konchesky Liverpool will buy N'zogbia and Bentley before the transfer window closes as they have Premiel League experience an will provide plenty of width to the first team. Roy will use kuyt, jovanovic and babel as back up strikers for Torres. we might get Mario Gomez on loan, he will decide whether or not he wants to join today. if we don't get bentley we might go for a RB an move Johnson into RW because he can't defend!

I do not understand why people want Llorente over C. Cole? Carlton Cole is english, has premier league experinece as is a good all round striker, Llorente plays for Athletico Bilbao in Spain, and is basically a shorter and worse version of Crouch, only scores headers or tap ins, not what Liverpool need. Liverpool need a forward who is fast, quick thinking on the ball and has a good shot, therefore I hope Roy is looking at the likes of:
S. Aguero (long-shot but need his type of class)
K. Huntelaar (10-15m)
B. Ruiz (12-15m)
L. Fabiano (15-25m)
B. Zamora (10-12m)
Oh how I wish Torres had a twin brother :P

Can people stop saying that the llorente deal would be a part exchange involving either lucas or insua, this can not happen. Only players born in the basque region of Spain can play for Athletic Bilbao, Insua is argentinian and lucas is Brazilian. Any deal, which is unlikely anyway would have to be a straight cash deal.

The Fernando Llorente rumour has been confirmed as false this morning. It was an internet story that broke last night without substance. LFC have not lodged an interest in the player at this stage. It has been confirmed that Liverpool made an enquiry for Carlton Cole but no fee agreed. Not too happy with this proposed deal. He's Emile Heskey with just a few more goals and more injury prone. Ola Toivonen looks a real player but now that Real Madrid are sniffing around the price will go up. Van Wolfswinkel is the form striker in Europe notching 12 goals in all competitions so far. He's only 21 so would be a good investment. Newcastle are credited with an interest in him this morning. I think there will be one more signing after Konchesky and it will be a striker. Roy is playing things pretty close to his chest - did anyone even mention Raul Merelies until the deal was already done. On yesterday's performance we need a creative player. Obviously Joe Cole will come back in but we lack pace throughout the team. Arda Turan would most peopleKs ideal signing but with a limited budget Roy has made a striker a priority. Expect a few more 'enquiries' to be made over the next 24 hours.

To everyone posting about Llorente for cash and Insua or Lucas:

Llorente plays for Bilbao and if you knew anything about football, you'd know they have a Basque only policy. As far as I'm aware, neither Insua or Lucas has any Basque blood in them. Therefore, they cannot sign for Bilbao.

From the This is Anfield website. .

Looks like the Llorente move isn't going to happen. Gutted. Roy could work his magic on Carlton like he did on Zamora but that would be on the scale of a David Copperfield trick!

There have to be better options out there if the Swede isn't a good fit.

UPDATE Monday AM: It appears this rumour of reports in Spanish press has turned out to be false and that an untrustworthy website first published the Llorente link, which then gathered pace and credence elsewhere.

Ola Toivenin is out of the picture as stated by R.H, so that leaves us (unfortunately) with the C.Cole rumors. Hope and pray they aint true, but it looks like that's what we are going to end up with by tomorrow!

MASCHARANO.£22 M
NEMETH. £1.3M
SAN JOSE. £2.6M
MIHAYLOV. £1.5M. .THATS.£39.1M BROUGHT IN

gives us £17.1m net to spend in transfer window

van der vaart seems a non starter now as he wants to repay real for the way he was treated why his wife had cancer.

BIG RUMOUR is fernando llorente will be signed for £9m + emiliano insua good deal as guy is quick and big with room to improve and will please torres.

i said by taylor from newcastle sorry to disagree with you but alltho he was in a below avarage defence last year the guy is a carragher type defender seen him play more than once and will not let us down plus english , homegrown and younger than kyriagos.

conner wickham maybe young but in a couple of years will be playing along side rooney we never take the chance on young talent and allways miss out milner , young, delph, ramsey and walcott to name a few.

and finally ashley young scores goals and is fast and a good crosser of the ball how you can say he goes missing for most of the game i don't no we need fast wingers jovanavic and kuyt will not be the answer to creating the chances for torres and llorente if he comes there is no money left that's why i said board need s to dip in to pockets the number 7 has been left empty for a reason and if its not young i fully expect a big signing on deadline day. {editor's note - I have watched both Taylor and Young a lot to form an opinion on them. Since starting this site, I watch matches on the tv and online twice, the first time I just watch the game, the second time I pick a player and just watch them play, the runs they make, work they do off the ball etc. I suggest you do the same if you think Taylor and Young are worth anything. Taylor is positionally inept, he is sluggish, has the turning circle of an oil tanker and is worse than Carra for pulling at attackers. He is an accident waiting to happen, also one of the worst play actors in the game. As for Young, if he receives a hard tackle then he spends the rest of the game looking to offload the ball the minute anyone gets near him. He has ability, but he is cowardly, he won't take the kick if it meant winning a foul or breaking past a man, he will pull out and let them have the ball. I expect more of a player that would cost over 15m to buy.}

Charles N'zogbia has burnt his bridges with both the management and some of the players at Wigan, as he believed he was leaving and, now this has fallen through, he is in the position where no-one wants to play with him - This means he is potentially up for grabs for a reduced rate of £6m, which has alerted Hodgson. He likes his flexibility and he is proven in the premier league. Expect a late offer.

Everybody concerned about having 8 homegrown (HG) players - it doesn't work like that. Actually, it is more a case that you can only have 17 players that are not HG. If you only have 5 HG players, the maximum size of your squad is 22, supplemented with any number of U21 players.

See, we're getting around to 'Aguero day' again - every transfer window for the last 3 years, the deal was due to be announced! ! Would love it, but really?

Now that Ibrahimovic has gone to Milan, Huntelaar is definitely on the move. Tottenham or Us

Sunderland have had a 12m offer accepted for Renne's striker, the Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan (who looked good in the World Cup) - They have been forced to make the sigining as Darren Bent has activiated a clause in his contract allowing him to move to certain 'named' clubs, if they offer £10m.

That club is Liverpool and the transfer will be announced late tomorrow and, before poeple start shouting that the 'clause' does not or could not exsit - I can promise you it does - Sunderland have spent the last week or so trying to find a legal loop hole to stop him activating the clause (and I work for the solicitors who have been looking into this) - But it is binding and therefore will happen.

Personally, never been a big fan of Bent, but you cannot argue with his goalscoring record at all the clubs he has been at !

Liverpool will unveil 3 new signings before the end of the window - They will be:

David Bentley - Spurs - £8m
Paul Konchesky - Fulham - £3.5m

Transfer talks will all three clubs / players are in an advanced stage, with Konchesky's signing being announced later today and Bantley / Llorente late tomorrow.

Despite a huge number of negative comments on here already re: Konchesky, I think he will be a good addition and Bentley & Llorente will prove to be great business.

Lets get behind Hodgson and the boys! It's early days, and our record is the same as big spending Man City to date (aqnd no-one is writing them off! )

All this talk of a striker is good for Liverpool as it's obvious we need cover/ support for Torres. But, isn't anyone else worried about the lack of width/ wingers in the squad? Having no natural winger in the squad is far more serious than not having a supporting roll for Torres. We need to improve starting eleven not the bench.

Ed~ What rumours regarding winger do you believe in?

EPort Red
YNWA {editor's note - I believe we have had a look at a few, and players like Ruiz who could play wide and up front, but prices are holding us back. The names that are filtering through are the ones that we have looked at and inquired about and then gone elsewhere as far as I can find out.}

Does roy have any money to spend ed? Or did the yanks break their promise of 12 million plus all sales money? Thanks ed! {editor's note - Roy has money left over that he raised from sale, it depends on what you call breaking their promise though. They say that pay offs to leaving players comes out of the transfer kitty, most players get a decent sized chunk of money to leave a club, if they are under contract, and that is being taken from the transfer budget, apparently. I am pretty sure Roy agreed to those terms though, so it is not technically a broken promise.}

Llorente would be good buy if and if he can do a torrs and settle straight into life in the premier league. But we all know what spanish strikers can be like, look at morientes and how he settled into the EPL?

Llorente rumour is false.

For proof search for Llorente and Liverpool in Twitter. Two journalists (one Times) got taken in by the Caught Offside "article". Nothing has been reported in Spain about Llorente and a bid/ interest from Liverpool.

Great site Ed read reguarly

well i was in liverpool today watching the match but i am from ireland. While going into the stadium i met john aldridge i know it sounds unrealistic but i had met him before don't think he remembered me though anyway he was saying that he thinks that there will be at least 2 more signings other than konchesky before the end of the summer he said that he was expecting lassana diarra for 8 million and also llorente for 11 million. He also said that there could be a bid for bently or ruiz but when i asked about toivainen he said he thinks there outpricing us now we have mascherano transfer funds

Please post and comment Ed! ! {editor's note - ex-players can be like old women at times, they do love to gossip about football. I am not sure if we are going to buy yet another central midfielder this summer. Hard to tell with Roy, but it would seem a bit much, to me, to buy 3 in one transfer window.}

Cant beleive. we are going for Cole by swaping babel. . Babel should be given more chance to prove his game. . Roy should forget Cole and go for someone else.

Forget about C.Cole, Fernando Llorente Torres is the guy for us with an apparent swap deal, insua plus cash (i would guess around 5-6-7m pounds)

"Reports suggest the deal is worth 11m (£9m), with Insua heading to the Basque club as part of the deal."

if only it were true, hes a real class stricker and very very cheap at that (in todays market). only prob would be insua and his mind set on MONEY AND NOT FIRST TEAM FOOTBALL. ! !

I completley agree that we need a pacy winger.Possibly Charles N'zogbia.He's unhappy at Wigan and would be available for about £10 million.

Fellas!

We don't need cole, lisandro lopez, lorenthe or zamora. We need someone who can help torres getting a golden boot. As simple as that, who can bring other players togeather and integrates them. We need a bulldog like worker.
Carlos tevez, lionel messi and wayne rooney are ideal partners to el nino. But, unfortunetly we can't sign any. Pity.

Anyways, diego forlan i think is one who can be an ideal fit with torres. Experienced, cheap and on top of that in the form of his life.

Blood is 'red' for a reason.

West Ham have rejected Liverpool's opening offer for Carlton Cole but have lined up Brescia target man Andrea Caracciolo as back-up.
Liverpool are willing to offer £7million and have even discussed a straight swap involving Ryan Babel but West Ham want at least £10m straight cash for 26-year-old England striker Cole. Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez, 25, will decide on a move to Merseyside this morning.

This is a statement not a rumour! I've been watching jovanovic play and i've been impressed so far! Obviously he needs a bit of time to adjust to the premier league but he has shown through anfield spirit, grit and determination! As for Maxi, someone needs to get that chicken a head! Rubbish! He makes lucas look good. Both are dead weight for me and need to be off loaded. As for Carlton Cole, not happening! Roy brings in J Cole, persuades Stevie and Nando to stay, then signs Meireles only to ruin it all by signing Carlton. I seriously doubt it. I can't see Roy showing Stevie or Nando his plans for the team and them saying i'm defo staying now because you plan on signing Carlton, what a buy. Not a hope, expect Roy to pull another one out of the bag!

In Roy we trust

Just been talking to a friend of mine who has a business connection with Dermot Desmond and he says that King Kenny has asked about the availability of young Celtic winger James Forrest, however it seems unlikely that Celtic will allow Forrest to leave as he is 1 of their and Scotlands hottest prospects but every player has their price, have seen a little bit of this lad this season and he looks like a good player for the future not sure if we can afford to be buying players for the future tho when we need to concentrate on the now.

I wish don Hodgson would pull out all the stops and bring Andy Carroll & Marc Albrighton to L.I.V.E.R.P'OO'L. Liverpool FC! These two are going to be massive time, mark my words. Unfortunatley its looking more like just Carlton Cole will be coming in =( Id of mucher rather seen Ola Toivonen, Bryan Ruiz or Ricky van Wolfswinkel instead though. Will everyone stop linking us with Lassana Diarra aswell, its Mahamadou we were looking at. Jose Mourinho stated "that he may go for free to the right club" i.e a club not capable of threatening Madrid's title chances this term. Us

Liverpool are asking into the availabilty of Blackburn centre half Christopher Samba with a swap deal of kyrgiakos on the cards plus 5m, Roy Hodgson sees him as a good player to have against the likes of Stoke and Blackburn because of their aerial bombardment, a deal looks unlikely though as "Big Sam" doesn't want to sell his team captain. He can also play up front as a pure aerial target man.: For those who will tell me ryan nelson is team captain he is actually club captain.

i hope we keep soto i really do, he is our biggest aerial threat, a very solid defender and also rises to the occasion when called upon. ! GO SOTO

Would love to see llorente. saw him in the wc and he impressed me. would be ideal up front with fernando or on his own. i doubt it'll happen tho, but who knows.

also; i doubt lass diarra is heading to anfield as he started for real tonight and seems very much in mourinho's plans.

here's hoping. .

I don't know about Carlton Cole IF we sign him but at least Roy is identifying are problem positons. Like LB and striker which Rafa should have sorted out last year but instead bought Aqualani. Roy it seems has to work within a budget and for me has done ok. If Rafa were still in charge he would probably buy another 2 holding midfielders with the funds he had available to him.

This could be are probable squad for the coming season.

GK
Reina/ Jones/ Gulasci

Defenders
Kelly/ Carragher/ Wilson/ Skrtel/ Agger/ Johnson/ Konchesky/ Kiriagkos/ Aurelio.

Midfielders

Maxi/ Gerrard/ Meireles/ Lucas/ Cole/ Kuyt/ Jovanovic/ Poulson.

Attackers

Kuyt/ Babel/ Ngog/ Torres/ Jovanovic/ Gerrard/ C Cole/ J Cole.

And this dosn't include the fantasic youth we have like Shelvey, Amoo, Eccleston, Ince and Pacheco who have shown in preseason how good they are.

I'll leave it to you who would be your 25 but the squad dosn't look as bad as people are making out.

We still need a skillful winger with pace and then we would have a perfect balance step up Arda Turan i think IF we had the funds then we'd have him already as we all know the coaching staff at LFC are great admirers of the young Turk.
