Metro is reporting liverpool are preparing for a 32 million pound bid for Reus. So what is our preference this January? Benzema/Higuain/Reus?

I'd be pretty pleased about that if it were true. Saw him play in the U21 tournament 18 months ago and really liked the look of him. Was being touted as Xabi v2 at Sociedad before he was bought by RM.

Hi ed's. Not been on here for a while and just thought I'd pop in as it's around now that all rumours start to pour in for January window. Can I just ask eds is there any truth or news of we trying to get origi in in January rather than the summer?
Ps thanks for your time eds great work & well appreciated the time and work you's put into the site.

DAVID_K_01

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I don't see how that would be possible and I simply don't see him as ready for the step up right now. One day he might be the new Salomon Kalou, but not just yet.}

Ed he is a completely different player to kalou and has great potential . How come you keep putting him down . I think even in this stage of his career he would add something to our squad . Certainly would scare defences with his pace

Johnaldinioh

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I have not put him down at all. He is simply a kid playing in the French league for a side that will be near the top. Nobody knows , putting aside the manager's stupid remarks, how long he will need to be ready for the EPL. He is not the great saviour that perhaps people think he is. Within a few games he will have been trashed by the posters here like everyone else.}

Hello eds,

Not been on here for a while so haven't seen anything regarding Reus. Seeing today that the metro has said he is willing to make a £20m move to Liverpool if they agree to pay his wage demands, which is apparently £180k per week. Can you shed any light on this? Hoping it's true.

Thanks.

Hi eds, heard a rumour that we are looking at Berinho from west brom, can't see it happening as we have Origi coming in the summer as well as Jack Dunn possibly making the step up once he's injury free, apparently WBA want 25milliom for him too which I think is way too much, any thoughts on this eds?

Lucas has said he is looking for a new club in january. I personally think BR has lost the plot . He is the best DM we have. Any ideas on if lfc are looking at a specialist DM to replace or are is SG going to keep pretending to be one?

atters72

( 37 )
( 6 )

Essentially Emre Can was bought to be cover for DM so I wouldn't expect to see another come in, especially considering that Gerrard has drifted back into the DM/anchorman position in almost every game he's played this season.

TDH

( 1 )
( 1 )

He didn't buy a DM with the 100million he spent in the summer, do you honestly think he will buy one in January, the man has lost the plot. No keeper, no DM, no ocer for Sturridge and no replacement for Suarez but over 100 million gone.

Mcgoveb Mcgoveb

26 Oct 2014 00:42:36
Can't say I blame him. Two Prem starts, both with Gerrard sitting in midfield with him so they spent half the match tripping over each other, and not even on the bench the last two games.

Emre Can looks like a potentially good player, but he doesn't look like a DM to me. He looks like an alrounder with a good engine and decent technique. Like Hendo or Allen, basically. And Gerrard just is not reliable enough at DM. We'll end up having to spend at least £12m for someone who'll probably do the same job Lucas could have done.

Rodgers has made a huge mistake on this one, imo.

Did we look at any of Valencia, song, or cresswell all west ham Eds?

Cole25

Ed01{Ed001's Note - Cresswell was looked at by a lot of clubs, none were impressed, even West Ham only really bought him as a cheap option. By the way, he can't defend at all, and can be very lazy about getting back. He has not always impressed in his career.
Song was an option, but we never made any move for him.
No one was willing to take a chance on Valencia, for some reason. Playing in Mexican football meant he wasn't highly rated.}

25 Oct 2014 12:11:59
I 99% confident what the answer is going to be for this but have we shown any interest at all in Sami Khedira?

I think he would be perfect to sure up the midfield and give Stevie a bit of a break, plus give Rodgers some tactical freedom.

He could either play 1 DM in the diamond like we did last year, or 2 DM's against the bigger teams, without having to shoehorn Hendo into there.

Please tell me the transfer committee have this one tucked up their sleeves Eds >:)

RedDawn

Why are you talking about buying a DM, Rogers wouldn't buy one in the summer when he had over 100 million to spend, he's not going to buy one now. Luxas will leave, SG will play every minute of every game, Henderson will be forced into covering for SG and Can will get a few games covering for SG too.
What a crock of ****.

We have a good enough squad. Mario wouldn't be my first choice transfer but he is here now and the manager has to figure out the correct utilization of the team he has assembled. Buying players just for the sake of making changes is never the right way forward.

Yes that is a bid odd, although i'm not sure if higuain is such a good idea as you hear that he is a very lazy player.

I think we need a player like lavezzi who can have similar effects as suarez in terms of work rate and inspiring others. I know he is not a very good finisher but people forget that suarez early in his pool career was all huff and puff and not great finishing, so maybe rodgers can help lavezzi with that

Haven't seen anyone ask, do we have interest in Saido Berahino? I liked his movement when he played against us, runs for the cause, looking at stats, his shots vs goals is impressive this year. Would west brom sell in january? We can send Boroni on loan as cover.

I do think he needs another season or two of seasoning, but after watching Balotelli loaf and waste chances, think it's time to move on.

mflis

This used to be called MOTD fever ! Whenever a player starts getting a bit of tv coverage and the press bandwagon starts rolling everyone gets lined and everyone starts asking if we are interested.

He is quality tho and I think he would fit nicely with our quick attacking play. Add him to the list!

Be nice to think the club Would start their striker replacement list as early as people do on here ! They will probably leave it until 30th of January tho!

daniellambretta74

I thought the guy looked very good last season and thought he might even have been a better pick for England at the WC than Welbeck (although admittedly Welbeck is playing well at Arsenal.

Berahino remind me a lot of Sturridge, always moving, looking for space, not afraid to run in behind, just needs a bit of polishing before his talent turns into consistency.

Completely the opposite of our current striker.

He would likely be too expensive now, but I think he is a good player!

Sure, we have 4 strikers but only 1 is world class and he is as you say made of glass. Move Borini on in january and get a flexible, pacy world class forward such as Reus, Pedro, Lavezzi or Lacazette.

On a different note, has Brendan ever used Henderson as CDM?

The time to get the Lacazette's and Pedro's of the world was in the summer. We bought Balotelli and Lambert.

That's exactly why people in charge of liverpool transfers must be fired. Lovren, Lallana, Can, Balotelli, Markovic. That's 5 players we bought for around 100m who would barely cut the mustard at blackburn rovers. Who pays for this ultimately? Fans. And the fans demand action.

Valdes has not rejected a trial his agent has come out and said that these reports are fake;

agent Gines Carvajal told Sport: "Liverpool didn't ask us to train for four days. We haven't rejected it because it [the story] is false.

"Neither Brendan Rodgers nor Liverpool have ever made us this proposal, at any time."

Not convinced Valdes is the answer to the problems at the back. If he does not pass the fitness program given to him by the club, he should not be signed.Cech would be a brilliant signing though a tad too unrealistic.

We definitely need a new keeper, I'm not convinced at all by Mignolet. I do believe Hart and Cech would be better options but maybe unachievable ones Valdes is a good option and for free is worth the risk as long as he is t demanding ridiculous wages.

Ed01{Ed001's Note - or perhaps they can see that because he was the goalie for one of the best sides ever he had it easy? Condescending much? Ever thought they might just have a different opinion than yours?}

Could anyone help me decide about Valdes, the latest reports are conflicting, either he has lost the plot and is not wanted or it would be a great deal? he is being hawked around according to reports on the internet and press, now the agents have got some interest in him they are starting with the demands, If i were about to pay him good wages and all that goes with it i would want to know i am not investing an a Turkey! i have a bad feeling about this, i don't think he is the answer, if we are going to replace Migs go and buy a top keeper and be done with it, bargain basements are well too risky, and a top goalie is essential if you want a successful team.

Hi Eds, I've seen some reports saying that the Valdes deal is off because he's refusing to have a trial with us. Any truth?
Thanks in advance

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I am not sure to be honest and would need to check. I explained about a week ago the confusion he was suffering from after approaches were made to him before the food and mouth episode. If the post is still there search on The AP.}

Surely a deal can still be done Ed, I don't think we've been unreasonable by suggesting a trial tbh?

Ed02{Ed002's Note - There was no confusion over the trial. It was about someone telling the press that Liverpool knew nothing of interest.}

Owe ok, a strange one really then, do you think it can be sorted out or has it passed now.

Dezmondo

Ed02{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool were going to start going about there business in a normal fashion then life would be a lot easier. Liverpool are looking for a goalkeeper. Valdes is an option - as he will be for a number of high profile clubs looking for a GK - PSG, Atletico, Monaco, maybe even Real Madrid if Casillas leaves. Cech is another experienced GK some of these clubs are looking for. It is what it is. Three things to learn. (1) Wait until a player is fully fit before assessing his fitness. (2) Don't put pressure on professional players to try and jump ahead in the business. (3) Stop the manager opening his mouth. He may think he is being smart, but he is being a DF.}

According to Valdes agent "Liverpool didn't ask us to train for four days. We haven't rejected it because it [the story] is false.

"Neither Brendan Rodgers nor Liverpool have ever made us this proposal, at any time."

Ed002 might know something about this:

Is there some problem between Rodgers and Begovic? Their paths must have crossed at Chelsea at some stage unless I've got my timings wrong.
I ask because Begovic was rumoured to be a target before Mignolet signed and he is clearly a better keeper. Rumours suggested he didn't want to leave Stoke, but Liverpool and Stoke are not a million miles away and Stoke are never going to be competing for honours. I can't imagine wages being an issue either, so I wondered if it was a personal issue between them?
I think he's the kind of keeper we need.

As for Migs, he reminds me a bit of David James and Brad Friedel. Great shot stoppers but needed experience of playing at a lower level before they developed imposing characteristics and organisational skills. They both matured in their 30's but were terribly error prone in their 20's and lacked confidence.

Ken Aguero   Ken Aguero

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Begovic and Rogers will not know each other. Begovic was never at Chelsea. Begovic did not want to move to Liverpool and rejected tentative enquiries.}

Are Madrid looking for a January deal for sterling? Reading some reports online.
If he is sold (btw I'd cry) are we looking at anyone? We don't want another Suarez situation on our hands (that of having no adequaterreplacement lined up

I just can't see this Sterling to Madrid thing happening, not yet anyway. I can't recall the last time they paid stupid money for someone who wasn't already the 'finished article'.

Hey Eds, do you think Rodgers will be allowed to buy any more players this January?Personally I don't see it after he was given money to bring in 9 players this summer. Thank you in advance for your reply

cluelessITK guy

Ed02{Ed002's Note - It is clear that efforts are being made to add another goalkeeper. After that you would think with the changes made in the summer that there should be nothing else required. However, at some point, I am convinced that we will hear the cliché "we are always looking to add quality". I am sure there will be a player or two leaving in January (Suso and perhaps Coutinho) and I am not convinced that they need replacing. The club also needs to keep a watchful eye on the FFP issues.}

Hold on Ed, why are we trying to sell Coutinho?I thought he was highly rated by Rodgers and part of our project

This is a joke rodgers has signed one player who has done brilliant and that is sturridge all his other signings have been average to rubbish maybe a few will come good from
Summer like a rate lallana but he needs to up his game coutinho showed sparks of how he could be good but never nearly enough do eds agree

Hi eds does the Sterling to chelsea rumour have any legs to it or is it just part of his contract negotiations? I am a little concerned that he is being linked with a move away and really hope this doesn't turn in to Torres suarez type saga

Sterling is playing well but is not world class due to end product so if he were to leave i'd have no problem if we brang in Ruse or the Colombian winger caudauo (spelling) or someone in that bracket

I'd be very surprised if Chelsea went for Sterling based purely on the wealth of talent they already have both at the club and on loan in that area. Could easily see City going for him in the summer, especially if someone like Silva or Nasri left

hjikle

Ed02{Ed002's Note - The two sides who have shown an interest are Chelsea and Real Madrid. Manchester City are not in a position to do anything in January due to their FFP punishment but have identified a viable summer target that would mean they won't be looking to Sterling. I don't see the kid being keen on moving abroad, I don't think Chelsea will happen, and with the new deal I expect him to soon accept I am sure he will be at Liverpool for some time yet. But it doesn't mean there won't be interest.}

Hi eds.

Just been reading that huntelaar could be avaliable for as little as 3million in january do you see us making a bid? Personally i would have signed him over balotelli in the summer.

Cheers in advance

lfc erroll

Ed02{Ed002's Note - But Liverpool went a different route - so no, I don't see Huntelaar arriving in January.}

Ed2 you said we were interested in Huntelaar in the summer. Do Liverpool still hold an interest in him and do you see him moving in Jan or next summer on a free?

Seen some stuff on us going in for Higuain in January after we showed interest this summer. Apparently our offer would be around £22 million plus Lucas. Do you think there is anything in this Ed's?

Cheers

Jgs92

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I understand that such an offer for Higuain was speculated about in the summer as you suggest JGS92, but since then Liverpool moved for Balotelli and have the apparently effervescing Origi yet to arrive - with no shortage of forwards at the club. To be honest, I would think there is little or no chance of Higuain arriving at Anfield in January.}

Not strictly LFC related, Ed002, but any insight as to where he might end up? Or do you see him staying at BVB?

RDL

Ed02{Ed002's Note - I cannot say where he will end up but Dortmund have held talks with Manchester City and a third party acting on behalf of PSG has enquired after his availability. Barcelona would like to agree a January 2016 move but it is unsure if that would suit the player. Dortmund will not want to sell to Bayern Munich but they have aging forwards they need to look to replacing and may push for a deal. If Liverpool were to lose Sterling they might look to Reus. If Real Madrid were to lose Ronaldo they might also look to Reus. Arsenal has shown previous interest but I am not convinced there is anything there right now.}

I good move for us IMO, but not sure if e will be first choice or just provide cover for Migs.

Watched Barca a lot last few years, if he gets back to full fitness and playing like he did before injury, he will be first choice without a doubt

I believe Mignolet will have the chance to keep the spot, but at some point Valdes will also have the chance to take it (Cup competitions). I think they want Mignolet to improve and Valdes is plan B.
