Eds and reds,
What's the situation with Martin Skrtel, Sebastian Coates, Jay Spearing, Stewart Downing and Oussama Assaidi? Are they leaving or are they staying here? {Ed002's Note - Skrtel will go to Napoli. I expect Assaidi to go back to the Netherlands. Spearing has not had an offer he is interested in and remains available as does Coates. Downing I don't know.}

Ed02,
Are there other Liverpool players, other than the ones mentioned above, that are likely to leave this summer? {Ed002's Note - Suarez.}


2.) Ha ha ha. Love the answer ed0002 and your sense of humour. {Ed002's Note - Why not sign up?}

Hi eds and reds,
Would just like to know if there's any news on Isco from Malaga. {Ed002's Note - Not in respect of Liverpool.}

Eds and Reds,
What are the chances of Liverpool going for Wilfried Bony?
What are the chances of Liverpool going for Dries Mertens? {Ed002's Note - Perhaps; unlikely.}

Eds and reds,
Could Liverpool get Christian Benteke and Christian Eriksen in the summer transfer window? {Ed002's Note - Try the search function.}

Eds and reds,
How big is the summer transfer window going to be for Liverpool?
Will we see a vast amount of players coming in and coming out? {Ed001's Note - bit early to say yet, a lot will depend on outs, a lot will depend on where we finish. There will be a very busy transfer window, not so sure Liverpool will be one of the busiest, unless we lose someone for big money.}

Elphenomeno

1.) Not Suarez.


2.) When Suarez leaves for Bayern for 60m we'll reinvest that. 15m on Nathan Dyer. 15m on Ashley Williams. 15m on Scott Sinclair. 15m on Franco di Santo.

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

Elphenomeno

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


1.) 01 Apr 2018 19:24:07
Ings and Solanke are decent enough stand ins for Firmino.


2.) 01 Apr 2018 20:58:37
I was more thinking of cover for Mane and Salah on the wings, rather than cover for Firmino.

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


3.) 01 Apr 2018 21:55:51
I'd be very pleased with draxler or lemar.


4.) 01 Apr 2018 22:05:45
My opinion for what it’s worth is, that’ll we’ll bring in 2 keepers. Because Mignolet will want to be a number one again after losing out with his long term battle with Karius. Ward now needs a permanent move to fully establish himself as a premier league standard keeper, which I think he is. Can see a Butland, Timo Horn standard keeper come in, pressuring Karius for No 1 shirt. Another Manninger type as 3rd choice thus allowing us to loan out the very promising Grabara. Bogdan will probably be difficult to shift permanently so could see him loaned out. Wouldn’t surprise me to see no additions in defence unless anybody was to leave. Would expect to see a midfielder signed to play the holding position, Jorginho would be nice, or wouldn’t be surprised at all if Can actually resigns. Keita obviously is coming in to play in there also. Arguably probably leaves us overloaded in midfield, but Henderson and Lallana do unfortunately look unlikely to play a full season without injury issues. Don’t see a striker being signed, more likely a inside forward/ winger/ attacking midfielder, someone versatile enough to get plenty of game time whilst not replacing Mané Firmino Salah. So would imagine Lemar, Draxler, Pulisic or Martins. Sturridge if he can can be convinced will be kept, because he really does give us a goal scoring threat from the bench in the difficult days, like Swansea away. This would also allow Solanke and maybe even Ings a loan move. Origi could be sold on if a buyer can be found. Markovic and Flanagan to leave as well.

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

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


6.) 02 Apr 2018 11:44:52
With you there, Ed. We need a RB to help TAA esp. if Clyne leaves and Gomez goes to CB cos Klavan may be gone.


7.) 02 Apr 2018 16:15:20
Hi Ed001, just catching up on posts mate, a deep lying playmaker, Keita and a RB are priority so if Draxler was to also arrive he would be a luxery or a bonus?

{Ed001's Note - bonus.}

Eds and reds,
With the likely departures of Stewart Downing, Oussama Assaidi and Luis Suarez imminent, I was looking at wingers linked with Liverpool this summer.
Diego Capel, Antoine Griezmann, Eljero Elia, Jeremy Menez and Hatem Ben Arfa are the most linked, are Liverpool interested in any of these players? {Ed002's Note - Try the search engine please.}

Eds and reds,
Luis Suarez wants to leave for a Champions League side.
Liverpool do not want to sell to a Premier League side.

Are there any foreign clubs, in the Champions League, interested in Luis Suarez?

I know this has been done to death, I am just asking for an update. {Ed002's Note - There is no update, I have explained repeatedly that his agent has been seeking interest from other clubs - including at least one other EPL club.}

Luis Suarez's comments changes nothing.
Luis Suarez wants to leave for a Champions League club.
Liverpool do not want to sell to a Premier League club.

So if a foreign club offers £50 million, then Liverpool will sell.

Eds and reds,
Centre back, left wing-back and left wing-forward.
Are these the likely positions Liverpool are looking to strengthen in? {Ed030's Note - Someone has ocd for the left,I don't think Liverpool play with a wing back,I didn't know left wing forward was a position,Do you mean LW or inside forward? }

Elphenomeno

1.) Are we going to look for a wide midfielder if the Echo is correct with the report Downing could be off, feel it leaves us with no true wide players except Sterling and Coutinho

Ed002, just asking after your post above. Does that mean you see Fekir or a AM similar to his quality coming and Shaqiri or someone similar to cover the wings? Is anyone else likely to arrive after that?

Elphenomeno

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer “likely” questions.}

Frankly Mr Shankly, a 25 point gap can not be bridged by Liverpool alone. The whole of the Premier League needs to not be bent over backwards by City like they were this season. Liverpool proved that if you can play a pressing game that you can dominate and win the game. Man United proved that even after defending deep, you can counter and go at them to win from behind. Wigan proved that even as a small team you can get a goal and hold on to that lead against them to win. These matches should be what most clubs look at and use to not let City get to 100 points again, probably stop them from getting over 80. We would then need to only improve by five points or so and that just means getting more points against the top six, which we struggled to do last season.

Ed001, I see Lallana going in January, when Oxlade-Chamberlain is fit and match ready. Could we really see Fabinho, Keita, Fekir, Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum as our squad depth in midfield next season? Could Alexander-Arnold be moved into midfield and a right back be bought?

Elphenomeno

{Ed001's Note - Fabinho can also play right back. With Gomez there too, do we really need another right back?}

Tarkowski would be a replacement for Matip (injuries) or Klavan (quality) . Maybe both if Gomez is moved from right back to centre back.
Fekir would be a replacement for Coutinho. In the short term he replaces Ox (injured) and long term he replaces Lallana (injuries and quality) .
Dembele would be a replacement for Sturridge (injuries), Origi (quality) and Ings (injuries and quality) . Offering actual competition up front.
Butland would be a replacement for Mignolet (quality) and direct competition for Karius starting games.
Cabellos would be a replacement for Can and keep Grujic (quality) out on loan for another year to gain experience.

Fekir and Dembele add first team quality straight away, like Mane, Salah and Van Dijk did. Keita will do this also.
Tarkowski, Butland and Cabellos look likely to become the same signings as Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wijnaldum. At first they'll be considered squad depth until they prove their value and work their way into the team.

I personally don't think we're going to sign a centre back or a holding midfielder unless we can get real quality in those positions (Like Alderweireld and Jorginho) . I also am not convinced on Butland and would prefer a goalkeeper like Alisson to compete with Karius.

I know it's not realistic, but let me dream.

Alisson
Keita
Fekir
Dembele.
