Liverpool rumours 2


Use our rumours form to send us liverpool transfer rumours.

(single word yields best result)

14 Feb 2019 05:26:09 there genuine interest in A. Raboit. any suggestion where he will end up.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - He has plenty of options but I am not aware of any proposal being made by Liverpool at this time.}

14 Feb 2019 08:52:34
I think, dependant on wage demands, I’d be surprised that we aren’t keeping some interest i the player. Young talented and lots of experience!

Although recent free transfer wages put me off the idea!

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 10:08:10
High wages and very similar to the Midfield options we already have in Gine Fabs Keita Ox Hendo Milner etc, we are stacked in that area of the field.

Agree4 Disagree6

13 Feb 2019 11:29:15
Rumour has it that allan has moved back to brazil on loan.

Agree9 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 12:55:26
"Rumour has it" - Lemar back on the cards?

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - "if theres any justice in the world" he will be zed.. :)

13 Feb 2019 13:24:51
I heard right about now it's fifty fifty.

Agree5 Disagree1

13 Feb 2019 21:33:46
Ed025. Surely if we did buy Lemar we’d have to give him time to grow?

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - nice one DPG..

14 Feb 2019 14:01:14
I remember when he made his debut on The Word,
He was up his own backside in those days with his 59s throwback hairstyle 🙄.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 14:59:57
You got the right guy there Ron?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Feb 2019 08:12:56
I've heard he's pretty 'dedicated' Ed. ;) Should sign him up.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - good stuff KK..

13 Feb 2019 08:14:44
Ed002 are you aware of Juve have any interest in Salah please?

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach at this time but they are aware that they will need to replace Dybala.}

13 Feb 2019 10:13:04
would they be interested in swapping Dybala ed? Or he is bound to another club?
on another note do you think this summer would be one of the most frantic summer window? with almost every big club from top 4 leagues in dire need of players.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any suggestion to exchange Dybala nor any interest in him from Liverpool, but there is from elsewhere. I am sure they would consider such a proposal.}

13 Feb 2019 10:19:39
Hi Eds where is Dybala likely destination?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Try the European pages.}

13 Feb 2019 10:47:04
Cheers Ed, I was hoping not.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 11:23:31
Dybala is being looked at by Madrid, be interesting to see if they go for Hazard instead or even both?

Agree4 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 22:06:51
Good player Dybala 👍.

Agree3 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 00:08:27
Ed02 if your about, I recall you mentioned recently, that there are a handful of young players that are very highly rated amongst the top echelons of football including yourself. If you have the time, Do you mind repeating the list or telling me a keyword to search for to find the post. Thanks.

Agree1 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - I have no way to provide a link and no recollection about what I said. But interesting in terms of centre backs, and knowing LFC will need one in the summer, the smart kids are looking at Jorge Mere (CB) of Cologne, Marseille's Boubacar Kamara (CB) and RBL's Ibrahima Konate (CB). Liverpool have taken a look at Egy Maulana Vikri (AM) - an Indonesian kiddie playing in Poland who has attracted plenty of attention.}

12 Feb 2019 14:52:54
Cheers for the info Ed. When you say we will be looking at a CB do you mean a youngster then or a first team player to replace a likely departing one?

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - It would not be a surprise to see Liverpool add a CB to the first team squad in the summer as they have looked at a couple.}

12 Feb 2019 15:03:58
Thanks Ed.

Agree5 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 16:21:01
Any chance you could specify who it is Liverpool have looked at for CB for the first team Ed002?

Unless you have before and I have missed it?

Thanks for your time otherwise.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Ruben Dias (CB) Liverpool have watched the Benfica CB on several occasions and watched him in a national game against Croatia in September.
Dael Fry (CB) Liverpool has a declared interest in Fry as they look to bolster the HG quota - knowing that prices will increase - much is expected of Fry.
I cannot say whether or not there is any firm interest in Lloyd Kelly (CB) nor Aidan Wilson who have been "recommended" to the club by an "agent" who I would recommend staying well clear of.}

12 Feb 2019 16:39:59
Really appreciate this ed2!

Agree7 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 16:51:02
Sorry if you’ve already said Ed and I’ve missed it but have you advised us who we have looked at as a CB recently?

Agree2 Disagree1

{Ed002's Note - See above or below -not sure which but I have answered it.}

12 Feb 2019 21:02:05
Cheers for the reply Ed.

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

12 Feb 2019 21:49:13
Cheers for the info Ed2, how are you mate?

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I am good man, thanks. January was five weeks of travel and fortunately I am generally at home for there weeks now - aside for a trip or two tho London. You must be pleased with the progress this season, Liverpool are better placed than they have been for many, many years o pick up the league title. Be nice to see it happen.}

12 Feb 2019 22:04:58
Glad to hear you are good Ed2, sounds like you were in need of a good break after such a busy January!

Yes, I'm quite confident about this season, I really see us doing it, many will disagree and think the worst and I know anything is possible but I do think it's ours for the taking this time around. Fingers crossed lol!

Take care mate.

Agree5 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

12 Feb 2019 22:14:45
Cheers Ed really good to hear from you mate. Take it easy.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 22:17:13
If I may ask Ed02, and I'm not asking whether Liverpool will eventually making a move for Vikry, but if any of English clubs try to, I believe it will be really really difficult to get a work permit, right?

Indonesia is currently ranked around 150+ in Fifa rankings. I believe ranking plays a huge part in obtaining work permit. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - You are correct - a WP will be very, very dificult to obtain. The rules have changed but the player needs a minimum of four points and summary goes something like this:
- The value of the transfer fee (alone) that is to be paid is between the top 75% and 100% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 3 points
- The value of the transfer fee being paid for the player is between 50% and 75% of all transfers to Premier League clubs in the previous 2 windows - 2 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is in the top 25% of the top 30 earners at the club - 3 points
- The basic wage (excluding bonuses) being paid to the player by the new club is between 50% and 75% of all the top 30 earners at the club - 2 points
- Subjectively, the player’s current club is in a recognised "top" league and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point
- The player’s existing club has played in the group stages or onwards of the Champions League, Europa League or the Copa Libertadores within the last 12 months and the player has played in 30% or more of the available domestic league minutes - 1 point.}

12 Feb 2019 22:27:07
Ed it's good to see you back. Glad you got home safely.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I usually get home safely thianks - there was an issuette in Tel Aviv but all is well.}

12 Feb 2019 23:36:26
That's a really interesting rules. Thanks for this, Ed02.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 09:34:19
Thanks Ed2. Sounds like a big game of yazi to me!

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 09:35:40
Thank you Ed002. Your knowledge and expertise never fails to suprise me.

It's such a tricky posistion for Klopp I'd say. I do actually believe the Centre backs we have are more than good enough to take us to the Premier League (personally) . But I also believe we definitely need one top class centre back as 3 of the 4 we have are ridiculously injury prone. I believe this a view shared by many and said countless times! I just hope Gomez can shrug off all his injuries and get a full season under his belt.

I don't know much about the names mentioned Ed002, I can see you have recommended we stay away from one. Would there be any centre backs you would recommend for LFC given our current CB situation?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - The three that are being watched by a number of other high profile sides.}

13 Feb 2019 11:03:40
Jesus ed that's the nicest thing i've heard you say to our fans in ever! Nice to hear you happy, is militao a realistic option for us? Thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I would not get your hopes up about Eder Militao.}

13 Feb 2019 11:15:44
Ok cheers mate, all the best.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 17:23:48
Ramsey to Juventus for a reported 400k a week.

You didn't read that wrong. that's FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND.

Thank goodness we stayed away from that. Much better options out there. (fingers crossed for Rabiot personally)

Agree9 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - Wow that’s just crazy talk...Do you think they’d be interested in Lalana?

11 Feb 2019 17:59:48
Worse still, the reports say the £400k is his basic salary. I assumed it included a MASSIVE signing on fee averaged out over the life on the contract, that he was able to negotiate because he was on a "free" transfer. I hope the reports are wrong in that regard.

Basically they've done the equivalent of paying a £40m transfer fee for Ramsey and then paying him £200k a week. I suppose it's not completely insane in the current market, but compare Ramsey to Fabinho and it doesn't really strike me as a great idea. And that's before they've paid his agent or any performance bonuses.

Agree8 Disagree1

11 Feb 2019 18:01:43
Why's everyone want rabot? Average at best for me.

Agree6 Disagree10

11 Feb 2019 18:14:22
If that figure is true then it's completely nuts, and in fact really bad for football clubs trying to build and hold onto their players. He may end up being an advocate for players to run their contracts down, with the knowledge that if they do, they'll end up with a massive pay day.

Players knew this already, of course, but when they see someone run their contract down and get £400k a week, more and more players will follow his example. Also, he's not even that special. OK he's a good player, but nowhere near the best there is in his position.

Agree9 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 19:08:18
£83m, over 4 years?!?!?!?!

For Arron Ramsey?!?!?!


Agree12 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 19:26:28
Jesus I'm aware that a higher salary is often affordable to the signing club due to it being a free transfer, but did Juventus have to go that high to convince Ramsey? it was far and away his best option.

Something we may not be aware of Ed002?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what contractual agreement he has but that sounds well beyond what I would expect.}

11 Feb 2019 21:33:26
and there goes the 99p price for milk. How will I afford protein shakes now?!

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 22:13:24
Juventus head of recruitment sacked by december. that's insane money for ramsey.

Agree4 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 19:04:22
Worst thing is this guy will be injured after about a dozenen games and then he will just carry on picking up the cash.

ED333 we should pay them to take both Lalana and Sturidge!

Agree3 Disagree0

{Ed0333's Note - if only mate. I’d gift wrap Lalana & Sturbridge in pink bows and personally drive both of them to Turin if that were the case. It really bothers me that they are both still at the club picking up such ridiculous salaries and offering zero.

12 Feb 2019 01:53:15
£325k a week according to Sky, what an absolute mess. £325,000 to do a bit of exercise for 5 days a week. There are people who put themselves in serious danger in their job and get paid sod all.

Agree4 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 05:12:25
I think we will sell studger and lallana in the summer 100%. I think we already have replacements for both in wilson and brewster.

and ramsey wage if true is only going to screw the head of few cash hungry agents who will in turn fed (read f**K) up the minds of their clients. There are some much much better players than ramsey who are not earning half what he is going to be earning if rumours are true.
It was always going to happen though, the market was going unaffordable and clubs were going to buy on free destroying any remaining wages cap sense left.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 06:50:24
Ramsey is a quality player. His argument for the high wages will have been simple. 50% tax on the 400k means he will earn 200k after tax. The cost of his wages is equivalent to signing a player worth £31.2m on 200k wages. He could easily argue that Juve would not be able to get a player of his quality and experience for £31.2m. He is a goalscoring CM in the prime years of his career at a time when that sort of midfielder is making a real comeback in the game as opposed to the lower G+A but better buildup CMs such as Xavi, Iniesta, David Silva, etc.

Agree0 Disagree4

{Ed0333's Note - you’re forgetting his signing on fee, agents fees, tax etc etc mate.

12 Feb 2019 11:28:10
Hey Juve,
I’m available on a Bosman 👍.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - after studying your performance in the charity match ron...juve said they are not looking for a stunt man mate.. :)

12 Feb 2019 12:57:50
400k a week is just insane, especially for a player like Ramsey. what is up with Juve at the moment?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 09:00:43
Cheers Ed002, I guess we'll wait and see if there's any truth to it. Insane if true.

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 15:12:16
Or in other words SGRed "what are they smoking over there? " lol.

12 Feb 2019 15:49:47
Ramsey? A quality player? I’ve heard it all now.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 16:29:08
Ron - The Stuntman, Juve not looking for a stuntman - ED25 is a killer with those lines!


(Sorry Ron, I hooe your not offended)

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 19:29:37
I imagine over four year, for Ramsey it will equate to something like 10 million a game.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 21:25:18
What sort of money are they going to offer to Mo?

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 22:17:59
Ed025 has been studying my cunning stunts 🤨

Just call me Colt Stevens 😎.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Feb 2019 17:26:55
Ron, what's the difference between a circus and a bordello? The circus has cunning stunts and .

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - and zed do the jokes on here.. :)

13 Feb 2019 17:34:15
Sincere apologies Ed025. I didn't mean to start an international territorial dispute. But I'll make a deal with you. I'll stop all attempts at jokes and you stop saying ALL of us have red-tinted glasses. Is it a deal? 😉.

Agree2 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - no chance...i dont tell lies mate, you keep on telling them jokes ArAy my friend.. :)

13 Feb 2019 17:44:56
Nah. It's okay Ed025. I'll steer clear of your and Zed's territory. We all know you're a straight guy and tell it as you see it and I wouldn't suggest you ever change that. 🙏.

Agree1 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i dont do PC and can never be described as a shrinking violet ArAy its just not in my make up mate...unlike rouge, lipstick and eye liner.. :)

11 Feb 2019 12:42:16
according to the guardian Juventus want Salah, apparently willing to pay 175 million for him, have they even got that kind of money.

Agree1 Disagree6

11 Feb 2019 13:25:06
Dybala plus £100 mil? I’d take that.

Agree1 Disagree24

11 Feb 2019 18:08:49
No thanks
Up the pool.

Agree7 Disagree3

11 Feb 2019 18:18:31
Dybala is no replacement for Salah. Where do you spend that £100, if you've already taken up his place in the team with another player.

Salah has proven to be extremely consistant, and at a very high level. In the current market, he's worth more than 175 mil.

He'll still be playing long after Ronaldo, Suarez and Messi retire, and will no doubt fill their void and I honestly think he'll win the Ballon D'Or in a couple of years.

Agree9 Disagree4

11 Feb 2019 20:38:53
Where do you spend £100 million? Back up GK, RB and LB, Milner replacement (if he leaves, not that I want him to), back up to the front 3.
There’s plenty of depth that needs adding and £100million would be helpful given our large spend last summer.
My initial response was tongue in cheek - just thought it point that out.

Agree2 Disagree3

11 Feb 2019 21:37:32
£175milliion is crazy money. If that was even possible I’d hope the money is spent on developing our youth teams and making Anfield even bigger!

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Feb 2019 00:47:45
We don't need to sell Salah to buy a back up keeper rb lb lw/ rw/ st we hace money for that and selling deadwood and freeing wage will be enough.

Agree1 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 04:45:45
Deadwood😂 I didn’t know Liverpool had resorted to selling timber to raise funds.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Feb 2019 13:42:36
What's the point of backups for your defense and front 3, if your star striker who scores 30-40 goals is sold off? Dybala is clearly not the man to bring in those 30-40 goals, not that type of player.

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 23:08:06
Hearing that Arnaut Danjuma is coming in the summer - looks a fine prospect at 22 with two great feet and pace to burn
- perfect Mane understudy. Got a friend who lives in Brugge and he says he's the best player there for past 10 years - although that may not be saying much😊.

Agree14 Disagree2

09 Feb 2019 23:18:27
For the past 10 years? So he's been the best player there since he's 12? Doesn't bode well for Belgian football.

Agree9 Disagree37

09 Feb 2019 23:40:52
I don’t think that’s quite what joe buck meant.

Agree40 Disagree1

11 Feb 2019 18:26:23
Wha'? People can't make a joke now? ¬_¬.

Agree2 Disagree3

09 Feb 2019 00:23:28
Lot of people talking about who will be bought for next season, but what about the youngsters and loaners?

For me most likely youngster will be one of the full backs as we have so may potentially good ones at the academy.
For me one of Lewis, Arroyo, Juanma, Gallagher, Camacho or even Hoever will be the youngster that I'd like to break into the squad.

Out of the loanees I think (which might not be a popular choice) is Grujic. I just have this sneaky feeling he will take his chance pre season.

Might not be everyone's first choices but let me know who would be choices from a loanee and a youngster.

Agree10 Disagree4

09 Feb 2019 02:20:45
I really like the look of Paul Glatzel and hope he gets some game time in pre season and let's see what happens.

Agree4 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 10:08:36
I'd like to see how Neco Williams or Hoever would do covering right back. Just don't see Klopp prioritising a back up rightfull when there's a lot of talent at the club. Also if a centre back was brought in as competition to VVD and Gomez (de ligt the dream), it would likely be someone who could fill in at rightfull too.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Feb 2019 14:03:11
Wilson will rip it up for us next season imo.

Agree2 Disagree3

{Ed025's Note - dont bank on it lerchy..

09 Feb 2019 15:54:31
I think we will cash in on Wilson next window to be honest.

I think Wilson, Ojo, Randall, Chiravella, Kent and possibly Woodburn will all be sold. I can’t see any breaking through. I think the more likely position a youngster will break through in is at full back.

Agree6 Disagree3

09 Feb 2019 16:20:39
Any reason bout Wilson Ed025?

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed025's Note - i have seen quite a bit of him LN and for me he is very lightweight, the prem is a different beast to the championship mate and i think he would find it difficult..

09 Feb 2019 17:02:01
Whys that ed? And i disagree jones i've watched harry since he was a kid down prenton park and his goals have always been sublime. Id like to think he will break through next season.

Agree3 Disagree2

{Ed025's Note - hes very good at free kicks lerchy and if you could bring him on just for them he would be an asset, the rest of his game is mediocre at best though and hes not strong enough for the prem imo mate..

09 Feb 2019 17:32:08
I understand that's always been a concern but the championship is probably as physical as the bpl for me, more tough tackles than showboating for me, also harry has been brilliant, a lot more than free kicks, he's been orchastrating well from deep and were it not for the woodwork he'd have a few more goals.

I think he gets in on the right for me with shaq benched or even cm. Definitely our brightest home grown prospect on loan currently.

Agree4 Disagree1

{Ed001's Note - I would say the Championship is more physical.}

09 Feb 2019 17:38:15
Do you think harry will make it with us tris? I hear klopp rates him very highly.

Agree1 Disagree1

10 Feb 2019 07:20:05
Sometimes players do need to bulk up and strengthen, just look at Sterling when he first arrived.

Agree0 Disagree0

{Ed001's Note - sorry just saw lerchy's question so will reply to it here before I forget. I expect Wilson to be given the chance to make it, whether or not he does it up to him.}

10 Feb 2019 16:27:57
It’s hard to integrate too many youngsters in a squad that’s still capable of challenging for top honours, but maybe 2-3 will get a shot and I’d like to see

- Sturridge for Rhian Brewster
- Lallana for Harry Wilson
- Moreno for Adam Lewis.

Agree2 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 17:13:28
Thanks ed and agree sg, brewster is very highly rated so should be around once fit, another loan for woodburn and grujic and i think its over for ejaria, kent and ojo though we should get decent money for kent as he's had a very good season.

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Feb 2019 21:48:38
Love that Lerchy ‘if it weren’t for the woodwork he’d have more goals’! Best line I’ve heard in ages! 😂
If it weren’t but the woodwork there would just be a net on the floor! Lol!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Feb 2019 05:54:38
Loved the look of Adam Lewis since I first saw him whip in a cross for the 18s. Beautiful stuff.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2019 23:58:27
Can anyone see Grujic coming back into the squad next season?

I think he may well take his chance and become more of a squad player. If he did I think having both Grujic and Fabinho in the squad would allow Gini a more attacking role.

I can't see Rabiot happening if it did then I'd say Grujic is as good as gone, as although Grujic, Fabinho and Rabiot aren't the same player we couldn't accommodate the three in a squad.

Agree6 Disagree8

09 Feb 2019 01:09:02
I don't think Gini would be good more attacking. We need more creativity.

Keita was meant to bring that but he's struggling. Lallana shows flashes of magic but is inconsistent and will most likely go before next season. The Ox returning should help so it'll most likely be the Ox and Keita fighting for the attacking role in the midfield 3 when playing 4-3-3.

Gini is good in the role he plays. Grujic might be in with a chance if Lallana and Milner go and he's happy with a bench role.

I don't think we'll bring in Rabiot, not sure. We might just get a couple of young players if Milner, Lallana and Grujic go.

Just my opinion as with Klopp probably trying to give Keita minutes and the Ox returning I doubt we'd spend too big in a midfielder who would take their spot.

Agree1 Disagree7

09 Feb 2019 05:53:56
Take his chance and be a squad player. can't see himbeing keen tbh.

Agree1 Disagree4

09 Feb 2019 10:18:20
I think there could be room for Rabiot and Grujic EVENTUALLY, if we could get Rabiot in this summer and loan Grujic to a German side hopefully in europe it could work. By then the likes of Hendo and Gini will be 30 and Grujic will hopefully have established himself more. Just wouldn't give up on him yet there's a player there.

Agree3 Disagree3

09 Feb 2019 12:47:13
The best thing for Grujic and his career would be to move on, otherwise he runs the risk of becoming the next Markovic and wasting years when he could be playing regular elsewhere. Nothing against him as a player, just don't see him becoming a first team regular.

Agree7 Disagree3

09 Feb 2019 13:04:17
Difference between him and Markovic is Grujic has gone in and being d main man from day one in a team fighting for a european spot whereas Markovic struggled for game time wherever he went. Everyone can't be written off as a Markovic the minute they hit 22.

Agree5 Disagree1

09 Feb 2019 14:49:08
Grujic should move on for the sake of his career. He is no Markovic, but he isn't going to get in to our side right now.

Agree1 Disagree5

09 Feb 2019 18:15:46
I think Grujic will be sold in the summer.

Agree3 Disagree3

07 Feb 2019 12:15:41
First time poster and just passing on what I've been told so don't shoot the messenger! Hearing that Werner is the main striking target this summer to add some depth with the intention of being able to rotate with Salah, Mane and Firmino. Fekir will also be in the mix if the price is right and as he has 12 months left a deal is likely. Brandt another target and is more open to the rotation system along with Mane, Salah, Firmino and Werner (if he joins) than he was before. Rabiot has agreed to join but they don't want to disrupt the team by announcing now as a number of players will be moved on including Lallana and Milner (Milner is keen to Join Leeds to finish his career) . Moreno, Sturridge, Matip, Origi and Mignolet all being moved on. Lastly, De Ligt has been mooted and is seriously considering. Playing alongside VVD is attractive and he is also friendly with Gini. Liverpool considering matching the VVD fee as he would be long term along with TAA and Gomez. Let's see how many come off but a lot of players want to be apart of what is happening and Klopp can build a serious young squad who can compete on multiple fronts. Werner, Fekir, Brandt, Rabiot and De Ligt would be all incredible signings. With Rabiot on a free and Fekir and Werner both in the last year of their contract, makes them even more attractive. All young targets and add the quality to allow the Forwards rotation (Firmino, Mane, Salah, Brandt, Shaq and Werner), midfield rotation (Keita, Fabinho, Rabiot, Henderson, Gini and Ox) and defensive rotation (Robertson, VVD, Gomez, TAA, De Ligt and Lovren) . Klopp currently doesn't believe the current back -ups are good enough hence why the defence and attack has pretty much remained the same but has plans to address this this summer. Stay tuned.

Sounds too good to be true. Also leaves us with no back up GK, RB or LB.

Agree27 Disagree2

All of that sounds reasonable. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, but I really hope the Brandt rumour is true, I'd love to see him at Liverpool. I'd be delighted with De Ligt. If we just ended up with those two, I'd be thrilled, well those two and a replacement for Mignolet who is sure to leave in the summer.

So we’re expecting to splash out big dollars on players like Fekir, de ligt, Werner/ Brandt but not be selling one of Salah, mane or firmino, I highly doubt it, even with an increase in revenue. Would be nice and would improve the squad nicely but I expect someone big to leave in the summer, especially if we do not win the league.

Thanks for the info.

If all of that came off it would be the best window ever. Individually you could see all those targets as realistic signings but collectively what would it cost to bring them all in?

Would be some squad with a few youth players such as lewis brewster camacho and jones added to the mix too.

Kman we’ve a lot of players to move on mate I’m not saying we’ll get all these players in but we’ve got
Clyne 12 mill
Matip 10 mill
Mignolet 10 mill
Grujic 15 mill
Wilson 15 mill
Origi 15 mill
Kent 8 mill
Ings 20 mill guaranteed
Lallana 10 mill
Ojo 5 mill
Moreno wages freed up
Danny s wages freed up

120 mil plus wages freed up I know there not exact figures
And you have to take in agents fees an all the rest but we can recoup a decent figure this summer to sign 3-4 quality players who they are and what they cost who knows .

Agree8 Disagree28

07 Feb 2019 14:23:59
I would imagine Fekir and Werner would be cheaper due to contracts running down whilst Rabiot is a free. Apparently Fekir was £52m agreed fee last year so would imagine this being £35m (ish) with 12 months remaining. Werner would be the same. Agree with the above poster, a lot of recouped money with players leaving and saving on wages. De Ligt would cost a few bob but at 18 is a long term player. I don’t see any of the above is unrealistic and would add the quality and depth in all parts of the team, especially when looking at the outgoings mentioned.

Agree6 Disagree3

07 Feb 2019 15:02:09
Hope it’s true but it seems like football manager signings to me, particularly De Ligt. Can’t see us splashing what will probably need to be a world record fee for a defender when we have 2 quality centre backs already.

Agree14 Disagree3

07 Feb 2019 16:48:46
That would be the dreamiest window since the last dream window.

ps - a player being in the last year of his contract doesn't mean that the buying club gets them any cheaper, it just means that the selling club gets less, and the player gets a higher signing on fee. Player power!

I hope that these rumours are true as the named players look brilliant at their respective teams. If we’re to compete each season we do need better squad depth. I don’t generally like the Liverpool City comparisons, but clearly young star players like Sane, Jesus (arguably) Sterling get rotates on and off the bench and appear to be playing well for the clubs. Pep does seem to manage the young egos so perhaps brining in young talent that want to compete with our first team isn’t as unlikely as we seem to think.
It’d be a great window, even if in this moment it’s a cheeky rumour.

Adamredbelfast, it really doesn't work like that.

RF - I have heard very similar. But my understanding is that this would be conducted over 2 summer windows. With Werner, Rabiot and Fekir being targeted this summer along with Laxalt. Then Brandt and De Ligt the summer after.
Either way it is exciting times!

07 Feb 2019 19:31:03
We'd certainly be Ligt of a few bob after all that 😉.

Started reading adamreds valuations but switched off at matip 10 mil.

Love it Adam.

Them valuations are well off, be lucky to get £10m for all of them combined.

Agree2 Disagree9

07 Feb 2019 22:55:02
Adam those valuations are hilarious but wtf we've paid more on worse an RF that lot sounds aces I hope you're ITK an not just dreaming like the rest of us anyway peace an love brothers and sisters let's go an win the league. YNWA.

Would those signings and the players being sold not seriously impact are home grown quotation?

Agree1 Disagree0

08 Feb 2019 09:49:46
Why would those valuations be "way off"?
Solanke went for £20mil
He's scored 1 goal.
Ings will go for £20mil.
Prior to loan he barely kicked a ball for 18 months.
Wilson is currently tearing it up in the c/ ship.
Why wouldn't a team risk £15mil on him?
The same amount Ibe went for few seasons ago.
I think people forget that transfer prices have risen and Michael Edwards is a transfer genius.

Agree8 Disagree1

08 Feb 2019 10:28:11
I can't see why wee would sell Wilson for that amount, loads of teams would take him on loan in the prem next year and his value would double if we got £20m for Solanke.
I think most of them values are on the low side we got £12m for a keeper that had hardley played any games yet we would only get £12m for Clyne i know a lot of people don't like him on here but a 28 year old England internationl with 175 prem games to his name to date. city paid £50m for Walker who is nothing special just very fast.
I am not saying we will sign all them players but we should get a least the money for the players that are going if not more.

Agree2 Disagree0

08 Feb 2019 14:13:46
Unless Derby come up, so he'd get some PL experience with them (if a loan happened again obviously) then we should keep Wilson! Some of those values are wishful thinking though, like Clyne and maybe even Grujic.

Agree0 Disagree1

08 Feb 2019 15:22:19
I truly believe we are looking at these however not all will come. Prob 2 at most with LB GK. World record profits will help.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2019 19:18:18
It’s too many big signings in one window. Like we got Fabinho and Keita in the summer, then comparatively smaller fees paid for Shaqiri. If we got Werner, I don’t think we’d go for another attacking player. The front three rotating with Shaqiri and Werner is enough, with Brewster as a youth option. Okay Rabiot maybe, free is a good deal if his wages aren’t silly. De ligt id love, Gomez can play can and rb if needed. But as other posters said, a left back and goalkeeper are more pressing.
