Ed002, I respectfully disagree with that. I can't really figure out what he wants to do with Keita, but besides that he's targeted highly adaptable players that have the versatility to play many different ways in different positions and different formations. I believe we lined up in the 4-2-3-1 like 10 times last year and never lost a game, which was easily our second most common formation. Shaqiri's struggles in the press along with our limited depth in the attacking positions were a major weakness though, and we had to go back to the 4-3-3 after the new year otherwise those weaknesses would have caught up with us.

It seems like it's Klopp's goal to deploy the 4-2-3-1 the majority of the time once we have the lineup for it.

The 80M price tag is eye popping, but I don't buy into all this stuff about the team not wanting to spend a little this summer.

Klopp wants to deploy a 4-2-3-1 long-term. It's how we were lining up quite a bit this past season but seemed to have and pulled off of that because we lacked depth off the bench in a lot of key positions in that lineup. There absolutely is room for Pepe in the squad though if the plan is indeed to line up that way. Salah plays in front of Firmino, and Pepe plays outside. It feels like Shaq may move on too, and be replaced with someone that can be more reliable on the press that will provide cover on the wings off the bench.

{Ed002's Note - If Klopp wants a 4-2-3-1 he has been buying the wrong players.}

It's not just Mango that views him long-term as a midfielder. LFC does as well, at least that's the status from a couple months ago.

Personally, I like him right where he is. I find it very hard to upgrade his spot (defensively it's possible, offensively good luck! ) and I also don't see how he brings more than what we already have to the midfield either.

They're likely following Depay in case Real Madrid surprises them with an offer they can't refuse for Mane. Eds noted weeks ago that Depay would be a direct replacement for someone up front, and not cover for the front 3.

This sure does feel like something they would explore. Klopp doesn't like a very deep bench (17-18 man rotation), but rather flexibility from guys that can play multiple positions. I wonder if they view Llorente as potential fullback cover too, considering his ability to pass and handle the ball?
