Saw talk of strengthening cm, we seem to have a few injury prone players in there and obviously milner is probably in his last season (hope he stays on in a coaching role! ) . I see all the talk of who we are linked with and can't understand why no one mentions kalvin phillips, everytime I see him he looks brilliant and the perfect player for our midfield. I'm guessing Leeds would also want a hefty fee for him.

I personally think he's over rated. He is a decent passer and takes a nice set piece. But he's weak on the ball, lacks aggression in general, non-existent in the air, slow to react to danger and often guilty of over playing. He's technically very good and he does work hard but i just think he's lacking in a few too many areas to be good enough for a top 6 team.

He again would cost £50m plus and he can only play the number 6 role so wouldn’t get in ahead of Fabs. I think if we sign a midfielder he will have to be able to cover at least 2 roles.

There are better players out there for the money Leeds want.

Decent midfielder but not the type we need.

Fabinho is a better player than Kalvin Phillips, who is decent in his own right. I don't see why adding him makes any sense.

I rate Phillips in fairness but I honestly think he’ll see his career out at Leeds, unless they start to really struggle.

Think we need at least 1 CM in summer, past Thiago, Fab and Hendo we don’t actually have a lot of a quality. Jones is good for his age and will continue to improve. Milner is getting on, still a great figure to have in the dressing room + he’s versatile. Ox and keita cannot stay fit and haven’t shown a great deal to suggest they should be kept. I’d move keita on 100% and possibly ox if a suitable offer came in. (We’d need 2 CM’s if both left) .

Ideally we’ll add Neuhaus/ Bissouma as the definitive CM signing and Aouar/ De Paul/ Sanches (if both ox and keita leave) .

Fair comments. Just looks tidy when I've seen him. I like the look of rice as well and young enough to be a mainstay for years.

I haven't seen a lot of bissouma if I'm honest and when I have he hasn't been that stand out I've thought we have to sign him. Why all the hype with him is he really that great?

RE Bissouma, montstar. It's funny, I asked myself the same thing today when I had a little free time. I haven't seen him much, but the scouting report I read is pretty hyped up. Essentially, he's big, strong, fast, a strong tackler, a great presser, he's good with outlet passes on the counter, and he's a really accurate long passer. He's also a reliable player and can log a ton of good minutes, which already puts him ahead of someone like Keita for me. It sounds like he could really do well with us, considering the way Klopp likes to have our guys play.
