Afternoon Eds. any news on departures? Brewster seemed to be imminent but all's gone quiet. any news on the front of a new CB lately also? cheers.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Karius has all but gone on loan. The club wish to sell Brewster, Wilson and Grujic and move on fringe players.}

24 Sep 2020 10:45:04
Morning Ed2, you have told us Klopp is looking for a first team defender but with financial constraints due to the C.V. that might prove to be difficult. I know of Klopp's admiration for Diego Carlos but what I wanted to know is if we hold any interest in Ben White who I think is a fantastic prospect. He won't come cheap but in your opinion if we were to make a move for him would it be an attainable avenue to pursue, in terms of whether Brighton have put a price on his head or it's a no go for this season.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have looked to bolster the home-grown quota and have looked Ben White (CB) amongst others. Liverpool are one of several sides interested but I don't see him moving this summer.}

24 Sep 2020 11:00:42
He’s signed a new long term deal has he not? Think we can rule him out for now anyways.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 11:23:32
Thanks for the reply Ed2.

The Southern Red, I didn’t know he put pen to paper a new deal, although it’s not uncommon for that to happen then a player leave shortly afterwards but looks like we can cross this one off for now like you said.

It's being reported that Leeds bought Llorente from Sociedad for 18M GBP. Is that true? We had been hearing for the better part of 2 years that Llorente was priced out of what LFC wanted to pay, but 18M seems like it would have been a no brainer move had the opportunity come up before we made recent purchases. Did Sociedad panic sell or is there more to the fee that is being reported?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Sociedad have money problems and needed to sell.}

25 Sep 2020 23:33:00
I also think llorente might not have been too interested in leaving sociedad to join us when other clubs like Leeds could offer him regular starting time. At that age he probably wouldn't want to risk the possibility of seeing Gomez and VVD become consistent partnership and spend a few years of his career not guaranteed to play every week. He'd be aiming to become a starting CB for Spain with pique gone and Sergio Ramos coming to his final years while no other top defenders from Spain are certain to fill those positions. He's 27 and not yet to have a season where he's been an ever present. He needed to seek a move where he can try to bring his game up a gear and maybe reach a level in next season or after to get a big move.

I don't think we had serious intentions to pursue him as I'd imagine the player wasn't expected to be eager to accept the role we could offer.

Agree4 0Disagree

26 Sep 2020 14:33:33
Food for thought, but I was under the impression that he was on our short list of CBs who could be automatic starters next to VVD. It just surprised me that he ended up going this window for that price. Don't get me wrong, I am happy with Gomez's game and love him as a player, just needs to string together a healthy year for me to have full confidence in his reliability.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Sep 2020 21:59:00
I understand that we as fans want to see Gomez being reliable as an ever present like van dijk has been. It's such a bonus to have a CB pairing who are together every week but Joe has only just turned 23 and still very young so I'm confident he can improve in this department. What I find impressive is that he and VVD can gel together so quickly when paired up even after periods of time apart.

Imagine a season where they start 35 or 36 league games together how strong they could be. The vidic/ Ferdinand or Terry/ carvalho partnerships were top class when they played nearly every game.

I've no complaints if klopp is ambitious and seeking a defender that is of the quality to expect coming straight into the team but Its hard to get that signing without spending large. I'm currently confident with the boys we have so I'd have no worries at all if we instead signed a cheaper or younger defender who could be managed patiently and look to earn his place without pressure to come straight in. Matip and fabinho also offer us strong options so I'd love to see Gomez being told by klopp he wants him as his trusted first choice and challenge Gomez to focus on achieving a full season of being fit and available. He just needs that full season without any setbacks and playing alongside VVD week in week out his confidence and game would be able to reach another level that we all see he is capable of.

Kouliby rumours? Has to be bs Ed's but thoughts?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach to Napoli for Kalidou Koulibaly nor if Napoli would be will to wait for payments to be made - which would be the only way he would be affordable. With Manchester City stepping back because of the age/cost/resale situation, PSG think they are the only viable option.}

24 Sep 2020 10:00:00
I am happy how Napoli is treated by clubs. They are one of the most difficult cløubs to negotiate. Just hope PSG rip them off.

Agree3 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 10:05:22
I do feel sorry for Koulibaly, just at a time in life when he is entitled to be thinking of his pipe and slippers, he keeps seeing his name in the football transfer headlines. He has never done any of us harm, why not let him retire gracefully?

Agree5 0Disagree

Now now Firmane. Don't you know the Liverpool fans rule when it comes to transfers? We pay what the asking price the selling club want, its only fair and we reduce our asking price just to get rid of them. At least that's the way some on here would have you believe.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 17:26:03
Is he a top cb signing? He's 29 and last time I watched napoli which to be fair is a while ago. but he looked very clumsy, a bit like sahko was for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 22:06:40
He's still a very good and proven centre back. Very good centre backs are hard to come by. Would be a great signing for PSG.

Hi Ed002. Sorry, I have tried searching but given there are so many references to them, it's like trawling through some heavy archives.

I've been talking with someone about the possibility of Sarr signing (which I'm not here to debate, as nothing has been really confirmed yet) . He is adamant that offers/ enquiries have been made about Mane and Salah to depart this transfer window. I thought that he's talking balony as I haven't seen you mention it, but he's adamant.

I know there was talk earlier of an enquiry about Mane by Barca, but that went away.

Has there been any concrete enquiries regarding moves for Salah or Mane this transfer window?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona dis not make the enquiry, Mane's representatives did knowing Barcelona's plan for their attacking players over the next year. I would not expect to see him or Salah leave this summer.}

24 Sep 2020 00:23:42
I wouldn’t have a problem with Mane going to Barcelona next summer. We have just signed Thiago in part because he wanted a new challenge, Mane would have given us 5 seasons by next summer and nobody could blame him if he wanted to try somewhere new. He has always given 100% and has been a big part of us winning our 6th European Cup and first title for 30 years. If he wanted to leave next summer he would go with my blessing.

Agree8 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 00:28:23
I have no inside information or clues whatsoever to understand what the transfer activity will be. But just from what I think are the factors at play I can't see the possibility at all that mane or salah will depart this year. Both are at the peak of their powers, have just won European cup and the league which was historic for our club, both are contending for golden boot titles in arguably the best league, both are under contract that gives Liverpool no reason to rush a sale, both players are loved within the club and no issues of conflict evident, both players still a few years left in their 20s and we are in power to demand a huge transfer fee. Any club that can offer that kind of money currently not as attractive in terms of strength so I just can't envisage how a deal could arise over next 2 weeks where we even receive an offer nevermind accepting it and see the player eager to leave.

Whatever the future holds who knows but we are in such a position of strenght while others are having struggles to a degree I don't see us letting any star player leave particularly when there has been no issues in terms of those players being unsettled or looking to move right now. Just look at how salah and mane started this season as proof that they are well focused on achieving another successful season for liverpool.

Barca and Real are banjaxed. Both deep in debt but because they took huge C.V. loans from the spanish Govt, they have to repay those Govt loans before they can take on any more Debt (The only way they could afford to buy anyone) Effectively they are both out of the running to buy mega-stars. Barcelona can't afford Gini even at the ridiculously low transfer fees being quoted. They are in such a bad way that both are off-loading big earners for buttons
Spanish state sponsored football is now out in the open and might never return.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 09:28:28
Ed002, is it true that La Liga prohibited Barcelona from buying players (e. g. Gini) due to FFP as reports suggest?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, it is not really like that, someone has misunderstood. The clubs with FFP issues need to address those first and then can buy and sell but the books have to be balanced. Any payments from prior purchases and any payments due on loans have to be paid first. Real Madrid are having to raise €190M and saved wages in sales to address such payments and to cover losses associated with the Coronavirus. Then if there is money left they can start buyin. This all exludes exchanges but Barcelona need to significantly reduce their wage bill going forward. The authorities do get a percentage of sales (within certain bounds) to help with the grass roots game which is taken as a tax.}

24 Sep 2020 10:18:44
With fans not back till March 2021, how are clubs going to pay wages? Worrying times for football clubs especially those with high wage bills and those without major merchandise sales. LFC seems to have high wages bills and many ‘extra’ players in the books.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - They will use income from broadcasters and sponsors. The clubs who live on the edge will suffer, as will those accumuating future debt. Clubs are aware of this but there is concern that a number of Premier League sides are not acting responsibly.}

24 Sep 2020 10:17:38
Not sure how exactly is Real going to raise £190 mill from sales. A lot of their players are too old to generate anything significant in the transfer fee or they are on massive wages. they seem doomed. If this remains how would they sign Mbappe next summer ED02?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I guess you don't understand the situation and what is happening.}

24 Sep 2020 10:35:57
I could be misunderstood here.
cheers.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, you don't understand. And this is the Liverpool page.}

"Yes, you don't understand. And this is the Liverpool page. " Have to say, that sums up pretty much all of Harry's posts rather neatly.

Harry is what this site needs because of the different views he offers not all good or all bad.
Does anyone know where Zedicus is is he alright he had some good jokes.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Sep 2020 01:37:40
Is this why we see Barcelona pushing the likes of Suarez, rakitic and Vidal out the door for hardly any sort of fee. Are they forced to get the high earners off their books as quick as possible? Same with Madrid not messing about and shipping out bale and James Rodriguez both of which on huge salaries. Is this a result of previous years where their transfer failings have finally caught up with them in terms of not being a sustainable way towards recruitment?

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Sep 2020 19:21:21
Salah/ Mane will not leave this window but the discussions with other clubs will begin. These kinds of transfers don't happen overnight.

Both legends for what they have accomplished, and perfectly natural they will seek new challenges. And the next year or so will be our last chance to get big money for them.

They cannot be allowed to run down their contracts, that's for sure.

My predictions: Salah to PSG, Mane to Real/ Barca.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 14:49:24
Ed’s, any news/ interest regarding Harry Wilson transferring to Burnley?

Kevin Palmer (Irish journalist with the Irish independent) just alluded to Wilson being off to Burnley.

Can’t see any other transfer speculation regarding Wilson.

Still a bunch of names we need to sell (Karius, Grujic, Larouci, Shaq) .
Also Brewster or Origi may leave. If the club is really desperate for cash, they need to make compromises on the transfer fees.

24 Sep 2020 02:25:10
I agree that i don't think Burnley will see him get the best chance to enjoy his football. Unless he's adapted to a different role that he ends up being effective and useful. I wonder what his game would bring if used wide left in Burnley 442 where he'd get that extra yard and space playing so wide and instructed to whip threatening deliveries for 2 target men instead of his past joys where he was used cutting in from the right. Burnley have had Robbie Brady injured for multiple seasons but that was always their type of winger that dyche liked with a peach of a left foot wanted to whip crosses from their natural side. I can't see Sean dyche wanting to spend big money and try to use him as we've seen him play for last few clubs. I'd be curious if he wants to try a different approach in using Wilson as a natural left winger. Anyone think this might be a transition that would actually get the best out of Wilson and a better fit for the PL?

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 14:24:25
Hi Eds,

Is it true that Burnley are in talks with Liverpool about the possibility of signing Harry Wilson on a permanent deal?

Thanks.

Believable4 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Burnley are one of several sides who have expresed and interest - but the asking price was an issue for them all - if Burnley can negotiate a better deal then they will take him.}

23 Sep 2020 16:23:00
Thanks Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 18:13:16
Ed, how much approx are we asking? . And how muvh would Burnley pay?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - £20M at least - perhaps £12M or so.}

24 Sep 2020 07:53:34
ta very much. Either amount is not bad as he obly played 1 game for us.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Sep 2020 20:48:55
Hi ed1. The Sarr rumours seem to be everywhere, have you heard anything at all? Saying we have agreed a fee with Watford. Thanks.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - nothing mate, I know he is desperate to join us because of Mane, so it seems highly unlikely to me unless we are worried about coronavirus issues hitting the team. If Mane or Salah were likely to be leaving, it would make more sense. This is probably the time for a bigger squad though, and it would give him time to bed in. But I don't know anything about it.}

22 Sep 2020 21:07:40
Thank you for the quick response. Have a good evening.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate, you too.}

22 Sep 2020 21:16:33
Even if we sell players who basically aren't going to feature this season (Wilson, Karius etc. ) and Origi and Shaqiri as well, I genuinely don't see how we'd possibly use Sarr, Taku and Jota with enough regularity, given that Salah, Mane and Bobby are undisputably first choice. Not to mention the occasional look in for Elliot. We'd basically be relying on injuries or corona to make Sarr necessary.

And even without Sarr, we've enough cover for pretty much anything but half the team getting corona, in which case we'll likely have fixture postponement anyway.

I reckon it's just Twitter chat with no substance and our interest ended when we decided to go for Jota instead.

Agree4 0Disagree

22 Sep 2020 22:15:11
100% agree SR. It was either Sarr or Jota.

Agree4 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 00:49:25
If Sarr comes that would surely mean both Shaqiri and Origi are on their way out.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 03:33:56
Would only make sense if there’s discussions around either Mane or Salah going next summer for a large fee. I hope not as they are both extraordinary and complete game changers, as already evident from first two games. We are incredibly lucky to have both in our squad.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 06:20:35
Before we signed Thiago, I was sure that we had to sell Gini and probably Grujic to make space. Before Jota, I would have thought we'd need to move on one or two from the attacking trio before we brought one in.

I am sure there will be sales, but I am now taking a wait and see approach to any future incomings.

Agree6 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 06:27:53
I'm all for strength and depth, I have a theory that Sarr is purely financial. As the fee is relatively low and the guy is young and talented I think they are looking at it saying "if this guy does well when he plays we can double our money in 2 years"

If it fails you'll still get a pretty penny due to age and reputation.

Agree4 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 06:42:09
Or maybe we are expecting Mane or Salah to leave next year so getting Sarr on a cheap now can lessen the blow.

Agree5 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 07:59:27
Sarr will join if watford can get the asking price down.
I can understand why club is looking to sign players. And i see sarr as a important signing.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 09:13:30
I wouldn't close the chapter on transfers just yet. Still two weeks to go and we saw what happened in just two days. Jota has come in, Brewster is still not gone, and lots of talk about Sarr. To me, if Brewster is not gone soon and Sarr comes in, it means one of Salah or Mané is going, and going now, not next summer. Nobody knows what's going on behind closed doors.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 10:52:25
Indeed, nobody knows what goes on behind close doors but I doubt that either Salah or Mane want a move as they are already at the best team in the world. I don't think selling either of them would go down well with most of the support. We could probably get Sarr by flogging Divock, Shaq and maybe someone like Woodburn but I reckon if the club is looking at anyone at the moment it's likely to be a decent CB. Cheers.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 11:29:03
Saar makes sense to buy if we are looking to the future, we know both Salah and Mane's reps have been in contact with the likes of Barcelona and Madrid in the past. Both will be 29 turning 30 after this season, so selling one of these before their value likely starts to decline majorly wouldn't be a shock. Won't want to be left needing to replace both the year after either. That said 4/ 5 need to leave or are spending the year playing reserves.

Agree3 0Disagree

23 Sep 2020 20:13:54
I get what you guys are saying but we only competed realistically in the league last season if we want to compete on more fronts then we need the quality in depth particularly in attack, the high energy area of the pitch I can see Klopp going for Sarr to bolster the front three so we can perform mor consistently on all fronts and not have to rely on kids in lower comps.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Sep 2020 17:52:31
Sarr isn't ready for Liverpool. So buy him now, and make him ready later!
