Hi Ed's, hope you're well and your familiars safe during these times. I've heard that Liverpool have approached Kai Havertz agent for a second time and the only concern Havertz has is his role in the team as the front three are staying put this summer. Surely this can't be true as Liverpool don't have £100 million to spend right now. I know there's no chance of it happening but thought I would pass it on as this is a rumour site after all 👍🏻

Cheers

Red GT.

{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you on Twitter again.}

04 Jun 2020 06:47:38
Not quite sure how I’ve been teased when I clearly didn’t fall for it but thank you all the same 👍🏻.

Dembele of Barcelona, loan and option to buy offer coming from Liverpool shortly.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

03 Jun 2020 18:40:04
I think this was a good while ago we asked Barcelona on his availability, Ed002 advises at the time. Unless there is something new.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - His price will have dropped a great deal since then.}

03 Jun 2020 18:41:37
No thanks, more time on the doctors table than top of the table with us.

03 Jun 2020 18:57:20
Agreed Baz, I can't see this been true personally.

Agree3 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 19:49:58
It hasn’t gone well for him at Barcelona but I remember seeing him at Dortmund and he was such an exciting talent. Better than Sancho IMO.
It’d be interesting to see if Klopp could get him back to that.

Agree4 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 19:50:16
Do you no if any truth in this then Ed, something new I mean.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I understand the idea of a loan with an option to buy has been raised.}

03 Jun 2020 20:03:46
Wow I’m surprised tbh, hope it don’t mean Salah might be on his way.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 20:09:03
Think loan with option to buY would be a good deal for us. He has spent a lot of time on treatment table at barce and I think I remember there being question marks over his attitude, however the potential is there for him to be a superstar.

Coutinho was a flopp at inter, salah a flopp at Chelsea. they turned out okay for us.

I'd prefer Werner I think but dembele could be an awesome option for us to have next season.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Unless something has changed he has been resisting leaving Barcelona having already refused a move elsewhere. Barcelona want to sell to raise money or use players in part exchange.}

03 Jun 2020 20:22:16
Timo Werner all day over Dembele. Werner wants to come to us, desire and good attitude over injury prone, lazy and arrogant Dembele.

Agree5 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 21:04:21
Sincerely hope we’re not after him. He’s a waster of Balotelli proportions.

He’s almost always late for training, apparently Barcelona have warned him about his diet and lifestyle away from playing.

As for him as a player, his end product is questionable as he doesn’t score loads and doesn’t create much, he’s inconsistent when he is match fit and more often than not he’s injured because he’s made out of crisps.

Just because Barcelona made a bad decision in signing him doesn’t mean we should repeat their mistake.

The club should be busting a gut to get Werner, not idiots like Dembele.

Agree4 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 21:06:56
I don’t agree that Dembele was a more exciting talent than Sancho, he never got into double figures at Dortmund and hasn’t since. Barcelona panic bought after selling Neymar and have ended up with a dud. It’s best that we leave well alone as he has mistake written all over him. Bad attitude, over inflated self opinion and seriously injury prone. Not to mention a salary of over £200,000 a week. No thanks, no thanks at all.

Agree2 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 21:12:11
Cheers Ed. Why is he resisting a move? Seems his time at barce has been a bit of a disaster!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I guess he is convinced he can make it. He has been offered to two good sides in part exchange options but they have not been interested. Klopp has had the klipperties for him, and, on form he is a decent player.}

03 Jun 2020 21:13:42
On the topic of dembele Ed what's the current situation with the young karamoko dembele of Celtic? Will we see him moving anytime soon?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You need the Celtic page and the views of the omnipotent Ed007.}

03 Jun 2020 21:17:21
He has plenty of ability. Almost reminds me a bit of a ballotelli situation.

If the club can’t spend the money needed for Werner I’d take dembele on loan and see how he does. But after hearing how we have seem to of made Werner damaged good surely we will get it over the line. Maybe we have players Leipzig maybe interested in I don’t know be better we didn’t keep getting ourselves in these messes.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 21:24:31
Ed I guess with him not wanting to leave Barcelona a move is unlikely then, I assume this would be instead of Werner as no way we can fund both.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona want him gone completely and will look to ease him out somehow.}

03 Jun 2020 22:43:58
Don’t think he’d be the worst signing as he has plenty of ability, I believe Klopp is very capable of getting the best out of him. If that’s the case a loan with the option to buy is a good option low risk potentially high reward. Reckon he would definitely be a good back up option and certainly an adequate player to start games.

Of course Werner is the guy the vast majority of us want and I wouldn’t be surprised if we agree a deal for him to join the year after.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Jun 2020 22:37:53
For those wondering what position he’d play if he came, I can answer that one, it’s lying down on the treatment table.

Joking aside, thankfully it looks like his ego has stepped in and he’s told Barcelona he doesn’t want the move, hopefully this is the end of the matter!

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 00:03:20
The fact that he doesn't want to leave Barcelona for us is enough for me, whoever doesn't want to join us and is more so forced to do so, is never going to give 100%. We need to stay well away from him, injury prone and only wants Barca, leave him there.

If we sign him I'll be very surprised. I'd much prefer us to give a chance to one of our youngsters than this.

Agree2 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 02:33:16
Ed002 has said that Klopp wants him. Klopp hasn’t got many, if any, transfers wrong. This reminds me of when we were first linked to Mane - bad attitude, not worth the hassle Etc. Maybe Klopp knows how to handle wayward talents? I remember Dembele being incredibly exciting at Dortmund, lightning quick. Haven’t seen him much at Barcelona though. Salah could play as a striker with Bobby behind. Maybe.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 06:47:37
I like that KloppBoom, I remember him at Dortmund he was an incredible player and still has the talent in there somewhere. Maybe he has been over shadowed at Barcelona by Messi Suarez etc, coupled with a few injury’s. I would like him to play for us but not at the expense of Werner.

Looks like a non starter anyway if he doesn’t want to come. Although maybe if we approach Barcelona first and get Klipperty on the phone to him .

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 08:48:54
Playing devils advocate, dembele may work on a loan to buy as a replacement for mane or salah next year. Get him in, get used to the system then up and running next year.
As kloppboom said there are few that klopp has got wrong, but hopefully he keeps that phone in his pocket.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 10:46:13
I think the perception of Mane having a bad attitude was unfair and almost solely down to one incident where he downed tools after Southampton refused to accept an offer from Man Utd for him.

Other than that he’d been absolutely fine. Dembele just has no interest in acting in a professional manner. By all accounts he’s a big time Charlie who refuses to listen to the manager and coaches at Barca, which is part of the reason they’re so keen to get shot of him. Having said all this, it is pretty academic anyway as by all accounts he’s refused to entertain the idea of joining us, which is fine by me and hopefully tells Klopp as much as he needs to know.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 11:25:46
Not keen, lazy and no discipline it seems. Just get werner done.

Agree1 0Disagree

04 Jun 2020 11:53:36
Salah and Firmino are the 2 highest paid players, wouldn't be a bad idea to cash in on them at the end of next season and have a front 3 of Mane Werner and Dembele (if the loan works out) need to build the next team soon so if Klopp does leave in 2024 he will leave a team at its peak.

Agree0 0Disagree

Hi Eds,

Thanks again for all your hard work during this mad time.

Before all this I believe the plan was to move the Premier League transfer window back in line with the rest of Europe, so I'm assuming in that way individual leagues hold some power in when they open and close it.

. with such a difference between leagues across Europe at the moment, i. e. we could see Spain, England, Germany finishing at different times whilst France has already finished. Is there any collaborative planning between the leagues and UEFA over the dates of the transfer window?

If it is staying the usual dates of June (July 1st officially) to end of August, how will that be affected by leagues still finishing and European competitions running towards to end of the window?

Cheers.

Believable2 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Leagues have to meet certain criteria regarding the length (maximum 12 weeks) of the transfer window but can figure the dates out themselves. The Premier League changed the timing of the window because they were arrogant enough to think everyone would follow - they didn't and now it is switching back. The clubs will give their opinion next Thursday when they are due to discuss this and closure of the season if it cannot be completed. The other leagues across Europe have the position that domestic transfers can take pace as soon as the last game is played and can can continue until the individual international windows are shut and are looking at a shorter window. At this point in time the dates on the table in France, Germany, Spain and Italy are August 3 to October 2.}

29 May 2020 15:00:38
Amazing, thanks for the detailed response. Do you think the Premier League will table a similar window?

It will be interesting to see when things starting moving in the market, I imagine slowly it will be quiet, but agents are probably itching to get things going.

Agree1 0Disagree

29 May 2020 16:55:07
ed002 do you think the top 5 leagues should try to get there leagues to start and finish at the same time then the transfer window would be easier to get in line. we seem to start before most of the other big leagues then finish before them the champions league final was a good point last season nearly 3 weeks between games.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - These are unusual circumstances so it is not possible now. The issue with the leagues is the number of games played varies, the winter break and the arrogance of the Premier League.}

29 May 2020 17:27:01
ed002 4 of the 5 leagues have 20 teams so its only Bundesliga that have 18 and even with the carabao cup we do gain a few games with are Christmas and new year games. Am sure we started 18/ 19 season 2 weeks before most leagues but finished 2 weeks before them. is it hard for us to start later because of the carabao cup 2nd round seems to start before some leagues start. if so do you think its time for that to go like most other countries and have just 1 cup.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Right - so the number of games vary per season as I said. If you compare how many games Leicester played in the season they won the league with how many games Manchester City or Chelsea played it will be around 10 less because of European competition. There are two cups to play for, replays again the likes of Plymouth etc., plus Liverpool are looking to work with a proposal for a pre-season tournament which requires the first team to be played - and it soon mounts up. Remember there is a third European tournament coming as well.}

30 May 2020 07:50:07
Would liverpool be doing it to try to boost income ed? I can't see the logic in it otherwise with everything going on.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes but other sidea are not interested.}

31 May 2020 23:11:24
There’s a third European tournament coming?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it may slip.}

01 Jun 2020 19:24:57
Is to much focus of transfers based around the windows i think they should shorten it as most targets are identified and agreements in place before the window even opens they should impose tighter restrictions on contacting clubs and players outside the window.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Save Klipperty a great deal in his phone bills.}

28 May 2020 19:43:23
Congrats to Abdi Sharif for getting a new deal!

Looked a decent prospect before his long term injury, hopefully he can kick on (no pun intended)

Edds has it now been put to bed that we won't be signing timo Werner as liverpool don't want to pay the reported asking fee?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. I am not aware of what fee RBL would want from Liverpool for him. The discussions with another interested side hinted that they would not be looking to sell him on the cheap. Liverpool are not in a good place financially as I have explained before but can borrow and can of course sell players to raise funds. The owners would not be looking to contribute significantly.}

28 May 2020 19:58:45
Ed002, I thought we were in a good place financially, not so long ago our house was in order and in a good position to strengthen if need be. All change due to C.V.?

With bums on seats being one of the lowest forms of income, where’s it going wrong ed002?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have explained all of this.}

28 May 2020 19:59:06
I have said it before that €79m is the magic sum and it will happen. Cheers.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 May 2020 22:01:30
Eds can you explain again why or how we are not in a good place financially? I've scrolled but can't see or find where you covered this unless it was a whole back.
Really thought we would be very much in the green.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I really don’t want to open this up again.}

29 May 2020 11:01:51
The natural. its a lot of debt mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 May 2020 07:29:07
Ed 002 I remember you saying we were much better financially so this now comes as a shock to me.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - It is a problem of Living on the edga. Liverpool dealt with their debt well, but manage finances based on income and when it arrives to pay money that is due. There is a loan facility they can call on if necessary as the club. Social cleansing of the Anfield area with Liverpool buying property and leaving it empty for years and persuading the Council to use Compulsory Purchase Orders to purchase the rest. After lying to the Council about their consulation with the locals about the plans for Anfield there was a delay and the two phased approach decided. In February 2020 Liverpool took out a mortgage on all assets (the Freehold and leasehold of Anfield and about 90 properties (some of which were obtained CPO) with the charge held by Natwest. The club have made a number of serious decisions that have led to financial issues - such as putting the full €160M due for Coutinho in the accounts and then spending it. Liverpool now need to make a correction to reflect the actual amount that will be paid by Barcelona. Reliance has been placed on end of season income to pay for transfer fees that have been spread over long periods.}

Very interesting ed thank you.

28 May 2020 16:14:05
Ed002 do Hertha Berlin have any plans to sign Grujic permanently?
As a lfc supporter I have accepted his lfc career is over but I wondered if HB or any other clubs are interested, as sooner or later he is going to need to find a club he can call his proper home.
Thanks for all your updates and I hope you and your family are keeping safe and well.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Thanks. Hertha Berlin would indeed like to sign Grujic at the right price.}

Still not going to celebrate just yet, think the key will be the tests and results after contact training returns. If a small amount come back positive then I think we will be ok, a large amount or a high amount within one team and we will be back to square one.

28 May 2020 17:35:59

Dave Maddocks released the tweet. Is he reliable?

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2020 22:06:01
If true then that shows a real lack of class from Liverpool. We’ve tapped the player up to the point he is desperate to join us. Messed Leipzig as they will now have a player that wants to be elsewhere.
Not very good from us at all.

I’m hoping it’s a case of trying to get the price down for him so we can get him cheaper. Even still it’s not good behaviour from the club.

Apparently he's not worth the 50m because of corona virus but traore is worth 70m and haevertz worth 90m. no ones got a clue can't see them announcing yes or no until Bundesliga over.

Not seen this chaps, has anything changed in the situation Ed as far as you are aware please?

Agree0 0Disagree

28 May 2020 09:12:30
As far as I’m aware, we were never in the race for Werner in the first place? The furthest it’s gone so far is a potential illegal tap up, no formal approach to RBL as Ed2 has confirmed on numerous occasions.

This is a nothing news story. It’s like me pulling out of the marathon having never entered myself for it in the first place.

Agree2 0Disagree

28 May 2020 08:04:56
Maddock also wrote an article 3/ 4 days before we Signed Alisson. That Klopp was happy with Danny Ward (Later sold in same window to Leicester) and won't be buying a new gk!

Can't believe as fans, we haven't learnt anything, about the secrecy in which Edwards tries to do the transfer dealings. a lot of the talking regards Werner is actually coming out through Werner and Leibzig themselves. His manager even talked about it last night. CEO a few days ago. Let it play out. there's no rush. And nobody knows exactly what's happening in background!

Agree4 0Disagree

28 May 2020 09:10:34
Personally Werner at 50 mill is worth every penny. Obviously every transfer is a risk but we ain’t going to get another player of that calibre for the 30 odd mill we paid each for our current front 3. To be honest our transfer team are very very good but they sure know how to sell a player and scrimp on buying one.

Apart from Fab and Allison we seem to drag our heals and drive prices down which can cause issues like we did with VVD and now Werner. If true that they don’t think Werner is worth it after being a proven German international and top player in a top league and still demand 130 mill for Coutinho and 15 mill for Ibe, 20 mill for Solanke etc is astonishing.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 May 2020 09:18:47
I'd much rather go for Havertz if it's one or the other. I can't see Werner fitting in this squad well.

Agree1 0Disagree

28 May 2020 09:28:07
No one will be paying 70m for Traore or 90m for Havertz. Or anything much for anyone.

Broadcasters don't want to pay up. And fans are not allowed into stadiums.

Football is facing a financial crisis for the ages. There will be more clubs going into administration than there will be transfers.
