Hi Ed's. Hope you are all well.

Just wanted to ask if you know of any genuine interest from clubs for any of the players we are willing to sell?

Karius, Lovren, Grujic, Wilson, Shaqiri .


Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Loris Karius (G) Liverpool find him back on the doorstep and will need to find a solution - perhaps a reduced price and an early exit - CSKA and Hertha Berlin offer opportunities - does not wish to return to Turkey although there is interest from there. With Boeckx getting toward the end of his career and Roef's departure this summer already agreed Anderlecht would like him to challenge first choice Van Crombrugge. Wolves need cover, but Karius would not be first choice there - and regular playing time is what he will be after.
Devan Lovren (CB) there was interest from Roma but that has likely gone.
Marko Grujic (CM) Borussia Monchengladbach and Lazio have been talking to his agent and Liverpool will likely get offers from both clubs.
Harry Wilson (RW) Minamino likely ends his Liverpool career - Leeds, if promoted, may offer an option.
Xherdan Shaqiri (AM/RW) wants more game time and if he leaves it opens the door for HG player to ease an issue the club has - Seville interest slipping away - Galatasaray want a loan with an option to buy.}

Hi Ed’s, seen the Thiago rumours have picked up again, any truth? Seems a bit strange if it is, obviously he is a very talented player but is getting on a bit and goes against FSG’s transfer policy.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change to what I said before. I don't see a player like him as a priority for Liverpool - who will need to do as many other sides and prioritise their spending this summer.}

03 Jul 2020 07:18:55
I think it’s lazy journalists making up stories. He’s lightweight, injury prone and not the sort of player (at his age) who would suit the premier league or Klopp’s tactics. Vastly over rated footballer.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jul 2020 09:17:55
At 29 would not see that same age as Henderson and Gini if they did sign a midfielder am sure they would want a younger player.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jul 2020 09:24:58
Not seen anything about Thiago tumours tbh. He is a quality player though and would welcome him if he was to sign. Sounds like there is no way it happens though.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jul 2020 11:38:45
Make sense if Milner moved on to Leeds maybe? and if Grujic sold?

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 15:32:18
Have we shown any interest in Ryan Fraser with him being a free agent could be decent backup.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - No.}

02 Jul 2020 16:46:20
not up to the standards required to maintain our place at the top. A spurs signing imo.

Hi Eds

Long time reader first time poster

Can Ed002 give an update on the players Liverpool are currently interested in signing when the window opens?

Tried searching but can't find anything recent

Cheers.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Priorities for the first team if players leave will probably CB (if Lovren leaves), CM/LM (if trust is not put in Curtis Jones) and AM (to replace Shaqiri if he leaves and provide cover for the forwards). I think Liverpool should look to integrate Brewster in to the squad and look to raise funds through selling Wilson and Grujic in addition to the two mentioned. And Home Grown quota is potentially going to be an issue next season with two players no longer under 21.

Diego Carlos (CB) First choice - it may be viable for Liverpool to negotiate the price down and include Xherdan Shaqiri in a deal if they can pay, say €40M, in cash. Diego Llorente (CB) may provide an option but it all depends on a CB leaving.
Julian Brandt (AM/CM/LW) a wildcard option and a versatile Shaqiri replacement who Klopp has been interested in before - and provides the desired cover.

There is a long list of players Liverpool have been scouting and looking at, but financially they are not in a good place (like many other clubs) and even if they look at adding a back up LB they won't be looking to spend much money.}

02 Jul 2020 12:48:43
Didnt know we could potentially look atbrandyt again, so t he cost an arm and a leg? Would be a great signing.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - He is young and a Klopp favourite - and since efforts were made previously he has become a more all round player and offers more than Rashica who would cost a similar price.}

02 Jul 2020 13:02:40
Is Nat Phillips not seen as a viable option as cover at CB?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Klopp has not been looking for cover but a first choice player to be alongside van Dijk. If Lovren were to leave and Klopp have the confidence in Gomez as first choice then NP would be ideal as far as I can see.}

02 Jul 2020 13:04:39
So ED002, which teams are 'in a good place' financially? Who is able to spend through C.V.? And how?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Ajax are the most cash rich club in Europe at present due to hefty sales of de Ligt and de Jong - and have money coming in from the sale of Ziyech (whist getting a really great replacement at one third of the price) - the sale of Onana and Tagliafico (and possible van de Beek) will bring in more. Manchester United have a pile of cash (which came through increasing debt). Chelsea have funds from last summer and January and have the Hazard money. They have a "budget" but don't want to use it and already have cash sales for this summer circa £75M and players who will be sold to bring considerably more income. Manchester City are well placed. Bayern Munich have funds but don't want to go wild. Manchester City will generate funds through sales and perhaps top it up. Bayern Munich and Hertha Berlin are better placed than other German sides. Borussia Dortmund will use money from sales to do work on their squad. PSG have funds available and could yet see one or two significant sales. Only Juventus have cash in Italy so the clubs will be looking at trading and selling players to raise funds. The same is true of the likes of Barcelona who have a lack of cash and, to some extent, Real Madrid.}

02 Jul 2020 13:46:20
Interesting Ed002 cheers.

Regarding you saying united have a pile of cash which came through increasing their debt would you see that as a problem if say they continue to miss out on champions league?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United need to be brining down their debt and not increasing it - it is in reality mismanagement.}

02 Jul 2020 14:20:26
What about outgoings from the club Ed? Who are likely players to leave? Thank you.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Outbound:
Shamal George (G) Gone
Loris Karius (G) Liverpool find him back on the doorstep and will need to find a solution - perhaps a reduced price and an early exit - CSKA and Hertha Berlin offer opportunities - does not wish to return to Turkey although there is interest from there. With Boeckx getting toward the end of his career and Roef's departure this summer already agreed Anderlecht would like him to challenge first choice Van Crombrugge. Wolves need cover, but Karius would not be first choice there - and regular playing time is what he will be after.}
Andy Lonergan (G) out of contract - could stay if Adrian leaves
Adrian (G) has a year to run on his contract but Real Betis would like Liverpool to release him for free this summer - but the club would prefer him to stay - and I expect him the stay
Devan Lovren (CB) perhaps in the summer he will move on
Nathaniel Phillips (CB) if Liverpool add Diego Carlos or another CB then time may have come for Phillips - Stuttgart would like to keep him on loan and may be open to buying him at the right price.
Nathaniel Clyne (RB) Gone.
Pedro Chirivella (DM/CM) Moved to Nantes.
Anderson Arroyo (LB) likely get another loan or the club need to cut him loose.
Adam Lewis (LB) expect a loan - Blackpool are keen.
Gini Wijnaldum (CM) was priced out of a move last summer and will be allowed to leave if a new contract is not agreed. Naby Keita has failed to step up to take his place so the club will look to hold on to Wijnaldum if they can - perhaps until either Keita sorts his act out or until Curtis Jones is ready to step up.
Marko Grujic (CM) Borussia Monchengladbach and Lazio have been talking to his agent and Liverpool will likely get offers from both clubs.
Ovie Ejaria (CM) expected to join Reading in the summer.
Adam Lallana (LM, AM, CM) time will come in the summer and he will have options home and abroad no doubt
Xherdan Shaqiri (AM/RW) wants more game time and if he leaves it opens the door for HG player to ease an issue the club has
Isaac Christie-Davies (AM) Gone
Harry Wilson (RW) Minamino likely ends his Liverpool career
Taiwo Awoniyi (F) no meaningful future - will sell in the summer if possible - loan to Mainz has not worked out well
Liam Millar (F) - a youngster who will suffer the same fate as many of the youngsters at Liverpool with opportunity not there
Rhian Brewster (S) loan to Swansea again perhaps or keep him and integrate him in to the team.}

Wijnaldum priced out of a move! Understand if you would rather not say Ed002 but who are the clubs interested in Wijnaldum?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - As I said, that was last year.}

02 Jul 2020 16:16:00
Brilliant mate. What is the major source of income at Manchester City mate? If I may ask other than sales? And how about Inter Milan? Already signed Hakimi and Sensi.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - You are on the wrong page. This is the Liverpool page.

02 Jul 2020 16:25:37
To be fair I’m not surprised that clubs were interested in Wijnaldum, he’s been brilliant since signing and almost gets better every year. Quietly efficient and always a 7/ 8 out if 10 performer.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed047's Note - well apart from THAT Barcelona game when he was a 12/10.

02 Jul 2020 16:31:50
Thanks, Edoo2.
Keeping the squad together, meeting HG regulations, integrating promising academy players into the first team seems to the future.
With a few smart additions here and there I'm sure we will be ok.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 17:14:19
Hi Ed002 - As always thanks for sharing your invaluable information. Question: Is Dortmund willing to sell Brendt? It seems to me that them losing both Sancho and Brandt in the same year would be significant for the club. Thanks.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - At the right price they will sell Brandt.}

02 Jul 2020 18:14:32
Must admit, if you said to be by end of window we would see both Diego Carlos and Julian Brandt arrive with Lallana, Lovren, Shaqiri and both Karius and Clyne leaving I would be more than happy with our business. Plus we have Elliot, Jones, and Van Den Berg plus Hoever from the youth side that’s enough.

We also have Keita and Minimino to settle in as well as Brewster.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 18:44:15
Thank you very much for the detailed response Ed.
Brandt and diego Carlos would be very good signings, runners crossed we can add a couple of players that can challenge the current first choice 11.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I said it would be a wildcard - right now Liverpool do not have the money.}

03 Jul 2020 08:38:44
I’d say we will likely see some funds from sales of Lovren, Karius, Grujic, Wilson, and Shaqiri off top of head. Lallana and Clyne are free so no money there.

May not be enough to pay for both Brandt and Carlos, if Brandt came would we move on Origi as well? We do have Brewster who could be a sub for the front three but he hasn’t looked ready when he’s been given chance so for me another season at Swansea would be far better for his development.

Would Dortmund have any interest in Grujic?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Brandt is very much a wild card, but a player liked by Klopp. The situation with game time would also be a concern with Brandt so he may have no interest. What he offers is far more flexability than most - certaily more than Rashica. There is no interest from Dortmund in Grujic.}

03 Jul 2020 11:26:16
Thanks Ed

I meant hypothetically on Brandt I realise you mean a slight possibility rather than anything concrete.

Great info from yourself again.

Take care.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes. There are players out there who can offer more than Shaqiri and the versatility to cover several positions. Brandt would be one such player.}

02 Jul 2020 10:16:43
Hi Eds, Are the rumours true that we have made contact with young Ngakia's agent? I know he would boost our 'homegrown' quotient and that he's available on a free transfer but it's left me a little surprised. if true.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I don't know. My notes say: Jeremy Ngakia (RB) Schalke want another loan for Jonjoe Kenny but that is not looking likely so have turned to out of contract Ngakia who wants guarantees of game time that he will likely not get in the Premier League.}

02 Jul 2020 17:50:24
Thanks, for the reply, Ed002.enlightening as always.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 11:22:48
Ed's

Could I ask if Fekir is still considered a viable option, even after that happened a couple of years ago?
Just wondered if the club still seen him as an option, especially now that he is with a different club so no Alaus .

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - we dropped all interest. It would be very surprising if we now saw him as an option.}

02 Jul 2020 14:11:33
Cheers Ed.

Hi eds and reds hope your all safe and well, Any truth in rumours surrounding Salzburg’s hee chan hwang, could be a coup if true.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Not involving Liverpool - he is subject to some paperwork issues he is moving elsewhere.}

30 Jun 2020 15:49:36
Shame.

Agree1 0Disagree

01 Jul 2020 08:44:32
Was that wolves that were interested?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Wolves were one of the interested sides.}

02 Jul 2020 11:16:37
He looked like a good player, if he replicates his form for whichever team he goes too, looks like a pretty good steal!

Afcon is cancelled until 2022 great news for us.

Common sense wins the day.

Agree1 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 14:36:28
To be fair Hailstones, one huge positive is that it means that we can defend our title and give more game time to Minamino and Elliott without their being the pressure on them so that they can be ready for 21/ 22.

Agree5 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 14:41:44
I’d still say we need a forward/ attacking midfielder. Shaq looks like he’s on the way, Lallana is leaving too I assume, Origi might or might not stay but even if he does our out and out attacking players would consist of Salah, mane, Firmino, Minamino and Origi. I know the likes of Harvey Elliot are coming through but it doesn’t look like they are trusted to start a PL game for us when we’re challenging for a title. As well as a forward, I think we need cover for Robertson (unless there’s one within the academy) and a CB if Lovren/ Matip are to leave. All this would be hard to achieve under the current financial restrictions we have but that is what we need if we are to improve the squad. We have to see if Adrian is staying as well.

Agree4 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 14:55:34
Curtis Jones will replace Lallana, Origi will likely to be staying, I think we can wave goodbye to Shaqiri, Lovren, Wilson and Grujic, from that I suspect there’ll be some activity after that.

Agree2 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 15:00:59
we need 2 players who can play in multiple positions.
1 who can play across back 4
1 who can play across front 3
but i would rather get a player who can LB/ LCB and that's it.
Origi, Elliot, Takumi and Ox can cover cover front 3.

Agree1 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 16:24:35
I agree 100% Decelticon.

Agree1 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 16:50:40
As an African who’s also an LFC fan who cringes whenever our players go for AFCon in Jan. I think AFCon is an important tournament for many people in the continent and around the world and there’s nothing great about it getting cancelled despite club allegiances.

Agree6 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 18:04:25
Loved your comment, Mico. Even though I am not African and I hate to miss Mane/ Salah, I do think you are 100% correct. Still I believe it's also a correct decision to delay it, just because of the circumstances lately and the many fixtures piling up for the coming months with CL and LE for August etc.

Agree2 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 18:21:48
To be fair Mico10, there is good news is that it’s only postponed and not cancelled, so it will go ahead just as a later date, I genuinely think works for everyone as the continent of Africa doesn’t lose an important major tournament and it gives us time to make appropriate plans for it and adjust to the financial fallout and getting back into the swing of things football wise on the club front.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 20:52:26
Gents we are current European premier league and world champions we have a team that has bonded perfectly and are playing the best football I have seen for years.

Trust in Jurgen and his team he keeps proving us all wrong.

We all said what are we going to do when Philip left? did it bother us no we just got better and improved.

We need to trust in the current players we have as we are world beaters and we need place trust in our youth Jurgen does and if it is good enough for him it’s good enough for me.
Am sure half the posters on here just play fifa and think that’s life we have fantastic chemistry and team ethic why break it up? Why crazy if you ask me trust your team.

Premier league champions current European cup holders champions on the world give yourselves a shake peace out YNWA.

Agree3 0Disagree

30 Jun 2020 21:33:51
Keith- Yea he does know and I am almost certain he would add to the squad if he could.

Track the arvo of the team, these performance levels aren't sustainable on the same group of players imo maybe Klopp can squeeze another 12 months out of this group. But I am convinced he would be wanting to freshen up the squad along the way.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Jul 2020 18:54:08
We need a robust and reliable CB who has leadership qualities and can score.
