Hello Eds and Reds,

I read reports that Liverpool will be looking for a first team right back next season. Gomez is a first team centre back, Fabinho is a first team defensive midfielder and Alexander-Arnold apparently wants to compete with Fabinho in that midfield role, as well as compete at right back. Due to this, Liverpool have been looking at Aaron Wan -Bissaka as our first team right back. Also links with Ryan Sessegnon who can cover Mane / Salah as well as Robertson in our first team. What do you think Eds, are these likely targets for Liverpool in the summer? We do need replacements for Clyne and Moreno, or could we rely on academy players to cover our first team?

Elphenomeno

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has shown no interest in Wan-Bissaka although they have previously shown an interest in Sessegnon - but they aren’t right now.}


1.) 28 Apr 2019 20:09:57
Fabinho and Trent wouldn’t play the same role?


2.) 28 Apr 2019 20:05:24
Are Liverpool looking at any other right backs then, Ed? I see great potential in Trent Alexander-Arnold going into midfield and the rumours of a right back coming in make sense with Clyne leaving.

{Ed002's Note - RB is a difficult position for Liverpool to address unless TAA is moved to midfield (as Ed001 tells me is the plan) and a new first team player arrives - although finding space for TAA in midfield still looks tough to me. There is no natural RB in the U23s who can step up, or so I am told, but we also know that Gomez can provide cover as well. In terms of who the club has looked at, I can only say that I am aware of one player, but no doubt there will be others:
Kenny Lala (RB/RM) only just signed a new contract Racing Strasbourg but has been looked at by the club - not sure if he would be available
If you were to ask me who I think is a viable option but the club has shown no interest in, I would say Valentino Lazaro (RM/RW/RB) who would be a great fix for providing cover for the whole right hand side.
}


3.) 28 Apr 2019 20:42:34
Always worth keeping an eye on max Aaron’s.

{Ed002's Note - There is interest from elsewhere.}


4.) 28 Apr 2019 20:46:31
Thank you for that Ed.


5.) 28 Apr 2019 21:14:16
Tell me more Ed please.

{Ed002's Note - This isn’t the place - trolling the posts here to keep bringing up his name is wasting everyone’s efforts.}


6.) 28 Apr 2019 21:37:44
Theory of relativity Ed, it worked with Salah a few years back.


7.) 29 Apr 2019 06:32:46
My first preference would be to use TAA and Robbo again at FB next season and ask Milner to provide cover, as that would allow Adam Lewis to step up too.

Failing Milner being willing to play that role, we should go for another FB to rotate with TAA and Robbo, as they play arguably the most demanding position on the pitch and have had little opportunity to rest given the lack of options this year.

Gomez should remain choice RCB, Fabinho first choice DM, and I agree with Ed that I don’t see any need for TAA in midfield right now given our strength in that area.


8.) 29 Apr 2019 09:25:58
I really don't understand why we would want to move TAA to midfield.

He's been fantastic at RB (youngest in the PFA TOTY I think) and the way Klopp has his team play, fullbacks are critical.

Would rather get an upgrade on the likes of Lallana and Sturridge to challenge for a first first team place than try to fix what's not broken.

{Ed001's Note - because he can't defend and was so good in midfield as a youngster that he got a shot in the first team in the first place. Jamie Carragher played initially in midfield then dropped back into defence. Gerrard started off in defence in the first team then moved into midfield. You can go through a thousand players and find a very large percentage that debut in one role and spend most of their careers in a different one once established as a first teamer. Kolo Toure made his early Arsenal appearances as a winger.}


9.) 29 Apr 2019 09:35:35
Just my opinion but I, like you Ed, feel that Trent should remain at right back. If he can work on the defensive side of his game he can really master that position.

That being said, Ed01 has a fantastic understanding of the game as well and if he believes trent can become a quality midfielder then I'm also open to the move.

{Ed002's Note - It will be interesting to see what happens. If the club were to look to a formation where there is a regular AM player in the team, then that limits the number of other midfield players to two.}


10.) 29 Apr 2019 10:34:34
Thanks for the reply Ed. It will definitely be interesting. I guess Fabinho was a rb initially and look how he has turned out.
I think definitely for the short term, trent should remain at rb and really work on the defensive side of his game. In the long term, I can see him being similar to Milner in terms of being able to play multiple positions. Either way he is an exciting talent and correct me if I'm wrong, he's also a scouser?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, that is exactly how I see it. He is at right-back to gain a new perspective on the game, which is common for youngsters in their early career. Sometimes they end up staying there for a large portion of their career, but I don't think Trent is being made the most out of being there. He is too good on the ball and it is a waste of his talents to play wide.}


11.) 29 Apr 2019 10:39:52
I would be made up with Lala he looks a great player and if he could adapt to the premier league would be a good signing if we were to go for him!


12.) 29 Apr 2019 11:00:46
I agree Ed, his technique and passing range is excellent and long term he is waisted at rb. I'm excited to see how he progresses.


13.) 29 Apr 2019 11:07:31
I’ve not seen TAA in midfield but he strikes me in style and physically as being akin to a Wijnaldum-type player, that perpetual motion?
It will certainly be interesting to see how the Summer plays out with the plan for RB.
If Liverpool were to sign a first team-ready right back (and Wan-Bissaka would be perfect though likely won’t happen), then Trent goes from playing every week to a very competitive rotation in midfield.


14.) 29 Apr 2019 12:54:54
Hi Ed, you said above you had been told There is no natural RB in the U23s who can step up. But what about Ki-Jana Hoever? is he just not seen as ready yet, or is it because RB isn't his natural position?

I know he is only 17, but from what I've seen / read he looks a real talent!

{Ed002's Note - He is a child so cannot train as long as the adults; he is not a RB and he is not ready for the first team. His time will come.}


15.) 29 Apr 2019 13:26:41
I'm with Edd, he gets exposed by anyone with a bit of pace and power. His qualities playing RB is all offensive, his crossing is something a box to box right sided player can do as well.

I would have him compete with a 1st team RB and CM, i. e take Lallana's role. So essentially a back up CM and RB.

Hi eds,

Read somewhere that Thorgan Hazard is being linked to Borussia Dortmund in January. Making people speculate that Liverpool could be going in for Christian Pulisic and Dortmund are already looking for a potential replacement. Any chance this is what is actually happening?

Elphenomeno

{Ed002's Note - No, Liverpool are not involved in this.}


1.) 23 Dec 2018 05:40:56
Chelsea.


2.) 23 Dec 2018 01:05:21
Is Werner of any real likely hood to be moving to Liverpool in the next couple of windows? Surely with Origi Solanke and Sturridge all on borrowed time it's only natural that Klopp will have to bring in someone to cover. Werner would be a big ask thou I suspect but with Wilson hopefully ready next year to step up he will cover the wide areas it's the front man we lack any real cover with.

{Ed002's Note - No.}


3.) 23 Dec 2018 21:37:18
Pulisic is Anfield bound. I have heard it from someone at the top of the club. Chelsea are in decline and he wants Liverpool.


 

 

03 Aug 2013 16:11:51
Eds and reds,
What's the situation with Martin Skrtel, Sebastian Coates, Jay Spearing, Stewart Downing and Oussama Assaidi? Are they leaving or are they staying here? {Ed002's Note - Skrtel will go to Napoli. I expect Assaidi to go back to the Netherlands. Spearing has not had an offer he is interested in and remains available as does Coates. Downing I don't know.}

Are there other Liverpool players, other than the ones mentioned above, that are likely to leave this summer? {Ed002's Note - Suarez.}


2.) Ha ha ha. Love the answer ed0002 and your sense of humour. {Ed002's Note - Why not sign up?}

Hi eds and reds,
Would just like to know if there's any news on Isco from Malaga. {Ed002's Note - Not in respect of Liverpool.}

What are the chances of Liverpool going for Wilfried Bony?
What are the chances of Liverpool going for Dries Mertens? {Ed002's Note - Perhaps; unlikely.}

Hi Eds and Reds,

Rumours are that Moreno, Clyne and Sturridge are leaving at the end of the season. Is this still the case, after such a successful end to the season? I imagine maybe one or two of them may want to be a squad player at a top club competing for trophies, rather than just starting at mid-table clubs. If they go, would they need replacing or would academy players fill the gap?

Long story short, would losing squad players this summer change the focus for Liverpool's summer targets?

Elphenomeno

{Ed002's Note - Read the posts, use the search engine.}


1.) 11 May 2019 18:33:22
We have sixteen players out on loan, in my view all but Harry Wilson will leave this summer especially the three non-work permit guys. The ink is dry on Danny Ings' Southampton contract.

Sturridge, Moreno and eight U23 players have exactly 50 days remaining on their LFC contracts, leaving at midnight on June 30th.

Apart from all of these I expect Shaqiri, Lallana, Lovren, Corey Whelan and James Milner to leave. Rafael Camacho has already asked to leave.

Over each of the last four summers an average of 29 players have left the club in a mixture of permanent and temporary moves, the Eds usually let me list them as the window closes.


2.) 11 May 2019 20:54:11
The fact that Moreno has played 3 times in total this season I’d hope we can replace him with youth!

{Ed025's Note - he could be replaced with a gerbil SR..


3.) 11 May 2019 22:44:58
Can’t see Milner leaving. Even if Leeds get promoted.


4.) 11 May 2019 22:51:02
Previous discussions about Milner indicated he to be guaranteed a decent wedge of game time. With Fabinho, Hendo and Gini having all had good seasons, plus Ox to come back and a big money signing in Keita who picked up an injury just as he was getting established, he's got serious competition for his place. Lallana showed he still has plenty of quality if he stays and can get fit again too.

I expect he'll be told he's wanted as a squad player, but is free to look for a move if that isn't enough for him.


5.) 11 May 2019 23:59:27
I don’t think Shaqiri will leave? Offers enough to be kept on and we’re short in that area anyways.


6.) 12 May 2019 00:24:49
If we win the UCL and Leeds get promoted, then Milner will ask to leave. He will have won everything there is to win at club level and would want to see out his remaining career at his boyhood club.


7.) 12 May 2019 00:53:09
Awful lot of gerbils feeling pretty bad about themselves right now.


8.) 12 May 2019 00:48:04
Moreno and Sturridge leaving isn't a rumour, their contracts are expiring.


9.) 12 May 2019 07:29:34
Ed002,

I did have a look but I saw nothing recent about the likelihood of Moreno, Clyne or Sturridge leaving and how that would affect us this summer.

Ritters of Hale,

Out of the players you've mentioned going, I'm only surprised by Shaqiri's departure but still disappointed by potentially Milner's

My question was more focussed on what positions we will need to strengthen in the summer because of potential departures? I think it's fair to say that Liverpool need strength in depth from our front three but that could be less of a priority than buying replacement full backs and midfielders to cover those leaving this summer.


10.) 12 May 2019 09:28:36
Why would Sturridge, Moreno and Clyne need replacing when they have barely featured all season? There are a couple in the youth team that are more than capable of taking their place. If the club are going to keep being competitive in the future, they need players who are an upgrade in the first 11 and not looking to sit on the bench. I think one of the Ed’s mentioned James Forest as a potential replacement for Milner.


11.) 12 May 2019 11:20:52
Ed that is mean to a such a wonderful animal.

Whilst he hasn’t played and I know he’s being paid vast sums to just do nothing he does seem to be a bubbly
Character in the dressing room.

Any margins to help the cause!

I think Lewis should at a minimum be given pre season to show his worth, there is a big issue if we don’t give those opportunities as the younger players will start to question what opportunities there will be at Liverpool.

It is already creeping in we don’t want to lose that positive status.

{Ed025's Note - if you need bubbly personalities in the dressing room SR you could employ bradly walsh for a lot less mate..


12.) 12 May 2019 12:34:15
I’m trying to put a positive spin on it haha.


 

 

01 Apr 2018 18:50:28
Hi Eds, I read through the page and even searched for an answer. I saw that Klopp is looking for a Emre Can replacement, a Jorginho type player rather than a defensive midfielder. I was just wondering are Liverpool still looking for a Coutinho replacement in our midfield or a Sturridge replacement covering our front three? Feel like those areas need to be addressed too with their departures.

Elphenomeno

{Ed002's Note - The club are not looking for a forward but are keen on adding to the midfield.}


1.) 01 Apr 2018 19:24:07
Ings and Solanke are decent enough stand ins for Firmino.


2.) 01 Apr 2018 20:58:37
I was more thinking of cover for Mane and Salah on the wings, rather than cover for Firmino.

{Ed002's Note - As has been discussed before I would not rule out a move for Draxler - and there has been interest shown in Lemar in the past but the price is through the roof.}


3.) 01 Apr 2018 21:55:51
I'd be very pleased with draxler or lemar.


4.) 01 Apr 2018 22:05:45
My opinion for what it’s worth is, that’ll we’ll bring in 2 keepers. Because Mignolet will want to be a number one again after losing out with his long term battle with Karius. Ward now needs a permanent move to fully establish himself as a premier league standard keeper, which I think he is. Can see a Butland, Timo Horn standard keeper come in, pressuring Karius for No 1 shirt. Another Manninger type as 3rd choice thus allowing us to loan out the very promising Grabara. Bogdan will probably be difficult to shift permanently so could see him loaned out. Wouldn’t surprise me to see no additions in defence unless anybody was to leave. Would expect to see a midfielder signed to play the holding position, Jorginho would be nice, or wouldn’t be surprised at all if Can actually resigns. Keita obviously is coming in to play in there also. Arguably probably leaves us overloaded in midfield, but Henderson and Lallana do unfortunately look unlikely to play a full season without injury issues. Don’t see a striker being signed, more likely a inside forward/ winger/ attacking midfielder, someone versatile enough to get plenty of game time whilst not replacing Mané Firmino Salah. So would imagine Lemar, Draxler, Pulisic or Martins. Sturridge if he can can be convinced will be kept, because he really does give us a goal scoring threat from the bench in the difficult days, like Swansea away. This would also allow Solanke and maybe even Ings a loan move. Origi could be sold on if a buyer can be found. Markovic and Flanagan to leave as well.


5.) 02 Apr 2018 00:44:08
Thanks Ed002,
I imagine a holding midfielder, a attacking midfielder and a winger would be the average expectancy for Liverpool this summer. A lot of people seem to think defensive reinforcements will happen too but I just don't see it.

{Ed001's Note - it is, as I keep saying, a deep lying playmaker, Keita and a right back that are the priorities.}


6.) 02 Apr 2018 11:44:52
With you there, Ed. We need a RB to help TAA esp. if Clyne leaves and Gomez goes to CB cos Klavan may be gone.


7.) 02 Apr 2018 16:15:20
Hi Ed001, just catching up on posts mate, a deep lying playmaker, Keita and a RB are priority so if Draxler was to also arrive he would be a luxery or a bonus?

{Ed001's Note - bonus.}


 

 

08 Aug 2013 15:44:54
Eds and reds,
With the likely departures of Stewart Downing, Oussama Assaidi and Luis Suarez imminent, I was looking at wingers linked with Liverpool this summer.
Diego Capel, Antoine Griezmann, Eljero Elia, Jeremy Menez and Hatem Ben Arfa are the most linked, are Liverpool interested in any of these players? {Ed002's Note - Try the search engine please.}

Eds and reds,
Luis Suarez wants to leave for a Champions League side.
Liverpool do not want to sell to a Premier League side.

Are there any foreign clubs, in the Champions League, interested in Luis Suarez?

I know this has been done to death, I am just asking for an update. {Ed002's Note - There is no update, I have explained repeatedly that his agent has been seeking interest from other clubs - including at least one other EPL club.}

07 Aug 2013 00:38:32
Luis Suarez's comments changes nothing.
Luis Suarez wants to leave for a Champions League club.
Liverpool do not want to sell to a Premier League club.

So if a foreign club offers £50 million, then Liverpool will sell.

Salah, honestly, I could see Liverpool selling Firmino to Barcelona and buying Suarez to replace him. Suarez is one of a very few amount of players that can actually do what Firmino does for us. The other players are almost impossible for us to get, except for Suarez in this situation.
