L'Equipe claiming that Liverpool sent scouts to watch talented PSG duo, Christopher Nkunku and Lamine Ba.
Nkunku, 17, is an attacking midfielder, whilst Ba, 18, is a central defender.

Being reported that Liverpool interest in Zenit St. Petersburg striker Salomon Rondon is intensifying, and it appears that the Reds are actively trying to seal a deal worth £15 million.
Some info about 25-year old Rondon:

* 2012: Became the most expensive Venezuelan footballer in history when he signed for Rubin Khazan in a €10m deal.

* 2013: Broke the record for most goals by a Venezuelan player in La Liga.

* 2014: Cost Zenit St. Petersburg £15.8m.

* Malaga: 27 goals/7 assists in 72 apps (Goal/assist every 2 games)

* Rubin: 25 goals/3 assists in 56 apps (Goal/assist every 2 games)

* Zenit: 28 goals/8 assists in 55 apps (Goal/assist every 1.5 games)

* Totals: 80 goals/18 assists (98) 183 apps (Goal/assist every 1.8 games).
Worth a bid???

I have absolutely no idea what Rondon would bring as I haven't watched him play. Would appreciate comments from people who have seen him play (in real matches, not just YouTube!).

However, I remember one of the Eds (Ed001, I think?) saying he's not the right player for us.

So £15m may be half of what is being mooted for Benteke, but for a player who isn't right for us (based on opinion of someone I trust with these matters) and is untested in the premier league and is already 25, doesn't seem like such a great deal to me.

Happy to be proved wrong, but seems like too much of a gamble.

Haha, what a record to have, can't imagine much competition

3.) 15 Jul 2015 09:42:25
@op6, exactly ya. Also the calculator seems to be broken and figures rounded down when it suits.

@Slaphead, worth a bid? I would say no. Why bother with him, we need either someone clearly a step up on what we have (other than a fit Sturridge) and he's not that.

4.) 15 Jul 2015 12:22:55
Just going to say that it seems your post is based on wishful thinking and being a Rondon fan. The facts you decided to include being the main pointer here. What is the speculation more precisely?

5.) 15 Jul 2015 12:36:49
Would prefer Rondon to Benteke if I am honest

6.) 15 Jul 2015 16:52:00
benteke is better than Rondon by a country mile due to a better upside to improve as well as experience in the PL. i watched Rondon at the Copa America and was not impressed at all.

After yesterdays horror show maybe some good news, it is being reported that the club is about to complete a deal for Benfica star Eduardo Salvio according to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo. Apparently Benfica's president Luis Filipe Vieira and agent Jorge Mendes flying into England for talks.
Liverpool were named as a likely destination for Salvio and O Jogo reckon those talks have been going on.
The Argentine has a £40m buyout clause but Liverpool would get him for significantly less than that. O Jogo say in their Monday edition that Salvio's exit is 'a matter of days' away and that exit will be to Liverpool.
The Benfica player injured his knee in his club's game at the weekend but that's not thought to be serious. It will keep him out of the Portuguese League Cup final but an absence of three weeks is the stated lay-off and it shouldn't halt any transfer. A note of caution for Liverpool fans would be that the Portuguese press can get a little carried so could be jumping the gun, but they were first on Lazar Markovic to Liverpool so deserve credit for that.


1.) 25 May 2015 08:46:48
Cheers for the info Slaphead. It may or may not happen and I don't know if he's good enough or not. Hopefully, we strengthen effectively this time round.

Red Rum

2.) 25 May 2015 08:58:22
Good player, but 40 million is way too much, considering the injuries he's had. Maybe if they have halved that price.

3.) 25 May 2015 12:02:20
£40 million is too much ?
We'll probably pay 50 then.
And then have the pleasure of watching him sit on the bench or toil at right back.
The club shouldn't sign anybody until they've sorted the manager situation out.

{Ed002's Note - Just to clarify matters. Mendes has been in London and Manchester over the weekend and is now in Madrid dealing with two matters there.}

4.) 25 May 2015 15:25:57
As usual Ed002 is on the ball with the information that us mere mortals could only dream of.
Totally agree that 40 million is way to much, but we are being linked with quite a few at the moment.
This is a very important window and hope who ever is in charge gets it right.
Thanks for all the hard work Eds and looking forward to the next transfer window.

5.) 26 May 2015 10:37:12
Get Salvio in him and Markovic were elletric for
Benfica 2 season ago.



08 Aug 2014 20:58:20
We are now being linked with Lazio's Balde Keita Diao, 19 years old. Lazio have snubbed a £16m offer from the Reds - and they want £24m for Keita's services.
Any more we are linked with as this is getting ridiculous now.
We are being linked with the world and his wife.


1.) We'll end up with grant holt and Victor Moses knowing our luck lol!

Liverpool could be in the frame to make a shock move for Palermo striker Abel Hernandez.

According to the Mirror, Brendan Rodgers could be aiming to snatch Hernandez from under the noses of rival clubs, just like he did with Philippe Coutinho.

Uruguayan Hernandez is widely regarded as one of the best young strikers in Europe and he has netted 11 times in 17 Serie 'B'games this season.

If Rodgers were to sign Hernandez though, it would have to be for a substantial figure - eight figures at least.

Apparently an attempt for Hernandez's signature was made by Liverpool in the summer but neither club could agree on a figure.

The 23-year-old is know across Europe and South America for his pace and technical ability. He has also scored seven goals in 11 international appearances.

He has previously been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur and Fiorentina reportedly had an offer knocked back in the summer.


1.) If he was good enough he surely wouldn't be playing in the 2nd tier at the age of 23.

Just a thought.

2.) No wonder we couldn't reach an agreement when they want an 8 figure sum for a 'seria B' player

I was saying to everyone before the game that Ramos will do a job on Salah, and sure enough. he Knew exactly what he was doing. Cannot believe how badly it affected the rest of the players though.
As for Karius.
He done roughly the same a few weeks back. Rushing to get us going that cost a goal. Do not know what he was thinking. It was 0-0 for gods sake. As for the i can't believe it's not butter keeper moment.
Bales wonder strike was worth the watch though.
Before the Game, Klopps interview, "look at their bench, wow".
A little nudge to the owners i think.
What if the Ox never got injured.
What if Salah never had to go off.
What if Mane's shot goes in off the post to make it 2-2.
All in all, a great journey this season and a pleasure to watch and be entertained.


1.) 27 May 2018 11:10:46
Karius should have NEVER tried to catch that ball cos it was floating in 30 diff. directions as soon as the ball left Bale's foot. He should have boxed it away into touch and at 2-1, you are still in the game. He tried to over-compensate for the first error and made a bigger mess. It's done now and we move on.

{Ed025's Note - it did swerve a bit brover but a good keeper catches that 9 times out of 10 mate..



17 Mar 2018 19:43:10
Snow is falling, all around me, players playing, having fun, tis the time for love and understanding, Salah 4 Watford none.




11 Mar 2018 12:24:51
I cannot believe what i am reading on here regarding TAA.
Some of the posters on here are always asking for the kids to be given a chance. He has been given a chance and done remarkably well.
Looking back on past posts he has been mentioned as being outstanding, what a prospect etc. Yet he made mistakes in all them games, but because we won it has not been mentioned.
Before blaming him look at the senior players that did not turn up, Lovren for one. He got bullied by Lukaku and was not dealing with the flick ons.
The OX kept giving the ball away and his decision making was awful.
TAA is still learning his trade and will make mistakes as ALL players do.
Hopefully Ryan Sessegnon does not read this page because if we are interested, why would he want to come to a club and get slaughtered when he makes a mistake.


1.) 11 Mar 2018 13:02:23
Thank goodness, thought it was just me.
Our 2 CBS were too busy trying to look after themselves to try and give him any belief or protection.
If your CB partner goes forward to compete for a headheader- you are taught to drop off in case he loses the flick on.
VvD- static- no movement and he could have easily intercepted before Rashford got onto the ball.

When under pressure we seem to go mute and withdraw into ourselves- that’s when you need vocal leaders pushing players into position and constantly communicating to encourage - especially younger players.

So lovren may have been bullied by Lukaku and yes Can should have shielded him more- but on both goals the gap between our CBs was enormous.

Jose could have driven his bus through.

2.) 11 Mar 2018 13:01:58
Well thank god Mourinho did not opt Martial on the left against Robertson! We have weakness and Mourinho exploited with precision!



13 Jan 2018 09:20:19
A question to ED002 if i may.
I know you do not like to talk money and understand why.
I heard on the radio the other day a pundit say that Ross Barkleys move to Chelsea was not only £15 million but also an add on of £7 million to his agent.
How can they ask for such a large sum for negotiating a deal?
I know it can be more or less but normal negotiations in the outside world of football do not ask for such large sums, like divorce settlements or buying house etc.
With your inside knowledge do you agree with the amount for the work they do?
Surely the player should have to pay the agent and not the club.

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - I don't know what the payment to his agent is and that information is not yet available. As a percentage that would be a ridiculous amount and would not be justifiable. Clubs have paid very significant amounts to agents in recent years (and obviously the amount paid this window alone will be much higher than £7M - more than double at least) but there are efforts to restict it. The buying club is responsible for the fees.}

1.) 13 Jan 2018 10:32:16
Many thanks for reply.
Good to hear there are efforts in place to try and restrict payments.
Just think that the player should pay the fees to his agent not a club.
Good luck with the rest of the window.

{Ed002's Note - In terms of the transfer it is a transaction betyween two clubs so that won't change. In respect of ongoing activities the agent does to find promotion work etc. it is already down to the player to pay.}

2.) 13 Jan 2018 12:06:00
Ed002 does a player pay a fee to an agent for being his agent? I know the agent gets a nice payment during transfers and that but does he get a monthly payment from the player during the rest of the time?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 13 Jan 2018 13:20:47
I'm not sure it's the same. but in modelling, they put in the contract 10% of the fee goes to the agency.
you don't pay them per se. but they take a percentage.
That's how I've dealt with it before.
percentage rather than a set amount.

Wonder if Suso will be returning?

I think his name is Simon Moses. Fast young winger. He plays in Belgian league now for Gent. I saw him also in some matches in Slovakian League. He was better than the rest. I remember also Matic and Skrtel in this league who were very good as well. But with all respect to our league it means nothing. He is young with potential but I don't see reason to buy him, it is better to keep Sterling, Ibe, Markovic and let them play. We need top class players ready into first team and give more time on the pitch for players from academy. He is good and has future but needs time and I do not think he is what we need right now.

{Ed002's Note - This is one I can help with. Gent's Moses Simon has attracted the declared interest of PSV, Apolonia Fier, Spurs, Ajax, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Fenerbahce and has apparently been watched by Viking, Liverpool, Reading, Midtjylland, Arsenal and probably others. }.

A great read regarding Solanke and young players in general.
Woodburn is another. Can see the boy has talent and is already an international, but has now been taken out the limelight.
Learning his trade training with the team.
Would like to see Harry Wilson added to squad for next season.
Been watching him and seems to have learned a lot this season.
The old phrase of "you never stop learning" should be drummed into them.
Loftus Cheek has also developed this season. I think the penny has dropped with him that he needed to work harder and focus.
Remember the U17 England squad that won the World Cup, and turned their shirts around so their names could be seen?
They are already in the system at their respective clubs. Scouts know who they are. To me it seemed they are impatient. Work hard, stay grounded and focused. Be willing to develop and listen, then the rest will follow.
Having said all that, a lot of young footballers suddenly think they have made it already and to a point, stop trying.
Did anyone notice that the whole of the Crewe team at the weekend were, Academy players? They won 2-1.
Crewe are known for having a great Academy that turns out player after player.

The information on this site from all the EDs, but ED002 especially gives out info and is clearly informed.
He tries to give his knowledge to inform us and give a better understanding of how clubs/ teams/ players contracts etc are run.
We as fans think we know but clearly we do not.
He like everyone else has an opinion. Lots of it is tongue in cheek, but is taken seriously by the poster.
I have been on the receiving end before, but took it on the chin and moved on. His opinion was not the same as mine. So be it.
This site is being ruined by the few, not the many.
Hope fully ED002 is still reading and see that he has the backing of the majority on this fantastic knowledgeable site.
Macca gets the same abuse, yet all he is trying to do is keep us informed with insider info.
I also remember the old days of this site when we used to read hilarious sightings and stories of uncles in burger vans saw X going into Liverpool.
Imagine if this site shut down and the EDs walked away?
Knowledge is a wonderful thing and i for one would miss the updates and debates.
Hopefully ED002 will be back soon so that we can learn from his knowledge and expertise in footballing matters.

Sakho disobeyed managers orders twice and had a little spat.
There was only going to be one winner.
All about attitude.
