Hey ed01, could I please ask you for an update in the CM situation, and what are the expectations for next season?

It would seem that we are fairly serious in targetting Naby Keita, and I am all for that, because he seems an exceptional talent, and sometimes you just need to make room in the squad for such.

However, I am a little confused whether we are pushing for Keita specifically, or will an alternative CM be sought.

We seem surprisingly well-stocked in that position, even with Lucas leaving, we could keep Stewart as a utility player - it seems he did not make the next step in his development, but for me he is no worse than, say, Cocquelen.

The Oxlade-Chamberlain interest also confuses me. The lad needs to be a starter, and he won't be with us. Gini and Emre should be ahead of him.
One last thing - what are the expectations for Gini next year? Does he remain a regular starter, were Klopp and the training staff pleased with him? Personally, I liked him very much, but another of the eds pointed out that he went missing too often, so I am curious how does the club view him?

Cheers, have a good one!

{Ed001's Note - Keita is not looking for the move, Oxlade-Chamberlain is the alternative. Wijnaldum is expected to be a regular.}

Hi Eds.

All has gone quiet on the Sahko situation.

Is there any news if him moving on?

Even as part exchange?

Believable0 1Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - nothing, with the injury he suffered at the end of the season, I doubt there will be much interest in him this summer unless he can prove himself fit in preseason.}

24 Jun 2017 18:42:23
Eds, hearing a lot of talk of about a move for Aubamayeng. Having scrolled through these posts, i haven't seen it addressed. Is there interest from Liverpool and could a deal happen? 63 million is a steal, even at his age.

Believable0 1Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - it has been addressed repeatedly, not happening, he and Klopp did not have the best of working relationships.}

24 Jun 2017 16:41:29
Any transfer update on Sadar Azmoun to Liverpool? I believe that he will soon become hot property.

Believable2 4Unbelievable

24 Jun 2017 18:31:03
He does not want to come to us. He knows his stock is rising and wants to veer a move towards United.

Agree1 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:09:20
Thankfully not. He is not that good player and I don't think he is any better than any of our forwards.

Any truth in the rumours Swansea have offered 13m for Moreno?

Pray it's true.

Any news on a left back, I saw something about cresswell the other day don't think he would be a bad signing, especially if he wants to go Russia playing for liverpool would give him a better opportunity to do that. Not so sure of the guy from napoli if they want moreno 🙈.

Believable0 2Unbelievable

24 Jun 2017 15:23:25
Cresswell is bang average. Half the West Ham population want him gone, and there was much ridicule over him getting a call up from his own supporters. Not an improvement on Moreno at all. Think we will end up with Ghoulam coz he refused to sign a new contract with Napoli and they want Moreno as a replacement now than lose Ghoulam for free.

Agree5 6Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:32:53
It's been argued that Gloulam possesses the same faults as Moreno, plus goes to AFCON2019. It would be a rookie move on our part, unless another LB comes in before 18/ 19 season.

24 Jun 2017 16:03:46
Hello i would thought 15mill or less for kieran gibbs of arsenal would not be a bad buy . any.

Agree1 6Disagree

24 Jun 2017 16:40:04
Gibbs? He's worse than Moreno!

Agree6 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 16:44:30
Not the AFCON issue again please! It's every 2 years for a couple weeks! So I'm guessing you don't want Keira either?

Agree5 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 16:59:26
Keita not Keira! Blimey! Keira and Sarah would of made a lovely pair! Haha!

Agree6 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 18:53:07
Gibbs is far better than Moreno.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - not sure about that personally. Gibbs is also fragile to the Nth degree. All the moaning about Studger would be doubled about him. He can't defend, poor going forward and is lightweight. Not sure why anyone would want him.}

24 Jun 2017 19:11:43
The AFCON does become an issue if 4 of your first team players leave though. This is assuming both Ghoulam and Keita comes in.

Ghoulam was pretty good the season before last, but whenever I saw him last season, he struggled and it was the other full back Hysaj who impressed me.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:13:46
Gibbs better than Moreno is the funniest thing I've read today, I concur with Ed001's comment!

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:47:56
got to agree with The Real AG, look how we fell apart when Mane went off to the AFCON, now imagine another 3 or 4 other first teamers leaving too,
and its def not for a couple of weeks!

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 13:36:40
Hi Eds,

What is the situation with Lacazette? Is it all Arsenal as reports are suggesting?

I'd sooner we went in for him, than mess around with Mbappe as that kid will end up at Madrid I'd think.

Obviously I am basing this on Liverpool giving up on Sturridge or Ings.

Believable1 3Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - what makes you think either are of any interest to us?}

24 Jun 2017 14:57:13
With Salah, Mane, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge, Origi, Ings, Solanke available I don't think goals will be an issue. Stopping them at the other end is a bit of a priority.

Agree11 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:04:41
Ive got a feeling salah will pull a griezmann with us and move more central for his goals.

He will be our 20 man this season for me.

Agree2 5Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:25:59
Sturridge is the only proven goal scorer in your list scar! Who is going to replace him if he is injured?

Agree2 5Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:36:33
Superman, I think he will contribute to a lot of our goals also. But I highly doubt he will be playing the central role otherwise where are you putting Firmino? I expect him and mane to feed off firmino from either wing, firminos link up play from the centre will be ideal with these two either side of him! Klopps buidling a team around Coutinho and Firmino and it's exciting!

Agree3 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:37:50
RedEka, funny we scored last season with Sturridge hardly featuring. That was a question for last season.

Agree1 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 16:03:52
Mane was banging them in for fun last season, barring AFCON and injury, he'd have got 20.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 16:07:12
RedEka not if but when he is injured.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 12:09:13
Ed. One report coming out of calciomercato. com is about Keita Balde - There have been a number of speculative rumours before but have you heard anything?

Believable0 4Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - This would be to replace Salah? Or Mane?}

24 Jun 2017 13:14:10
Ed - I have no idea. Having said that, I presume that the manager is looking to improve the squad not only the first 11. Firmino is not classed as a striker per se, but fits well into Klopp's style and formation of play, therefore the article might suggest that he is intended as support and back-up for this position.

Agree0 4Disagree

{Ed002's Note - So Ings, Sturridge and Origi? I would doubt Firmino would get a game if he doesn't play him as centre forward. You cannot keep adding players without other leaving. May Coutinho will gey to move?}

24 Jun 2017 14:29:12
Calciomercato is normally grade A bullsh*t. Wouldn't take what they say seriously.

Agree3 1Disagree

24 Jun 2017 14:39:41
I think we need better strength in depth. Sturridge, Ings, or Origi to be one or two of those to be replaced with each offering currently the lack of the type of strength in depth we need. Probably Sturridge because clubs that will pay do rate him and will probably pay more. None are good enough in today's world for a title challenge even as back up in my opinion. And yes Firmino best for CF right now but his versatility helps when those behind have injury, as they will. Need another class cf though, a class cb, a natural lb, and a class cdm or box2box!

Agree1 3Disagree

24 Jun 2017 15:14:02
Not asking for too much LOL. Let me just offer caution to what I said about Sturridge. I am talking about "now" not a few years back! I don't think he will ever be a first or strong second choice again for a top 4 (maybe to pay 6) Prem side. For him it is just time gone by and injury - it's a shame but Liverpool could get decent money for the lad and he'd do a fair job at a Mid table Prem side or an Italian team where the style and pace of the game is different. Ings will work his socks off but just does not have the quality for me. Origi - really not sure - maybe need some another season to prove?! But one, maybe two should go and we should get a ready made!

Agree1 1Disagree

Centre midfield who scores = Gruicj.

24 Jun 2017 18:12:09
A lot of successful teams in europe have more than two out and out wingers in their squads. That's what enables them to qualify for CL and win titles. Don't understand why that concept would not apply to LFC.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:13:44
Firmino just got the number 9 shirt and it very clear Klopp sees him as his first choice striker.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 10:42:38
Ed002, any interest from Liverpool for Gaetan Laborde?

Believable0 5Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I don't know of Liverpool interest in Gaetan Laborde. He is seen as a very average striker in France and there is a different Bordeaux player that Liverool has been keen on. Laborde is far from a regular goalscorer.}

24 Jun 2017 11:02:18
Is that Malcolm? Do we look like making an offer?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Malcom - there has been a lot of interest from Liverpool.}

24 Jun 2017 11:03:13
Malcolm I assume Ed?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Malcom.}

24 Jun 2017 11:04:19
Thanks Ed002.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 11:11:59
"Course you can Malcom! "
See how many oldies remember that line.

{Ed001's Note - I am obviously too young.....}

24 Jun 2017 12:18:58
Sadly I do . Vicks sinex.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 12:39:28
My dad still says it now! Im sure he would have preferred me to be called Malcolm.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 13:10:44
I don't know much about Malcom, but was he another alternative to the left winger? If so, the interest in this window must surely be gone now with the deal for Salah, am i right?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think that Klopp would keep looking for more players in that position but given he will be playing at least one out of position then maybe. Or maybe he is interested in a striker who struggles for goals?}

24 Jun 2017 13:13:01
And me too.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 13:40:03
Malcom as left back. LOL.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jun 2017 19:45:24
Gaetan Laborde? Sounds like the name of a drag act!
I still believe that Bobby Firmino will remain as our preferred striking option, with Sturridge and Solanke as back up/ cup players. I don't think Klopp really needs much more up front, he just needs to sort out the defence.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 Jun 2017 17:29:15
Eds any updates on our interest/ pursuit of Ricardo Pereira?

Believable0 1Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I would put him out of your thoughts for now.}

23 Jun 2017 23:14:30
Thanks, any reason why we're not targeting him considering he's available and would greatly improve us defensively.

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have explained over and over.}

24 Jun 2017 00:47:48
Sorry I've searched it and all I've seen is that Spurs have talked to him. Thanks for your help anyways.
