I think we will sign Neves. Allison is a fantastic player who would cost upwards of £50 million and Klopp wouldn’t spend that kind of a sum on a keeper.

Navas you mean from RM as Ed002 has suggested?


2.) 21 Feb 2018 17:56:36
Why not? Why settle for more average crap like we have for the last 5 years, we've just got a large fee for coutinho and should have a good budget on top of that aswell, a good keeper earns you an extra 10 points a season, if we want to be with the big boys we got to push the boat out now and then.


3.) 21 Feb 2018 18:08:04
Just as Klopp wouldn’t spend that much on a defender or midfielder harry? Not that he has much to do with money spent but we have done nothing to suggest that expensive players are out of reach.


4.) 21 Feb 2018 18:29:32
Alisson is worth his weight in gold to any top club with an upward trajectory and would represent the most important signing for us for the last several seasons. ( Yes even more than Mo and of course we all love him but we will be lucky to get 2 seasons out of the lad with everyone sniffing round, especially if the rumours about him asking his agent to circulate his interest to a certain Spanish side ) . If Dave goes to Spain we would have the best keeper in the Leqgue no question. We should just pay the 70 mil and be done with it, worthwhile investment on all fronts.


5.) 21 Feb 2018 19:25:20
If we are going to spend 70m on Alisson better to spend it on Oblak he is younger and has more experience.


6.) 21 Feb 2018 20:09:46
I don't get people giving it thumbs down above with me pointing out to the OP its Navas not Neves? Lol argh well. Allison would be a great improvement for us but its not him we are looking at guys. Its KN.

{Ed002's Note - You mean Alisson?}

I’m don’t think Navas is anywhere as bad as some people are making out on here.


9.) 21 Feb 2018 23:41:48
Westwood, he really is as bad as that, he’s concedes too many soft goals and makes too many unforced errors. Navas would struggle as badly as Bravo has at Man City, sorry but Navas simply isn’t a top class keeper. I could list loads of performances where he has cost Madrid the game or where a goal has been directly his fault. If we sign him, get used to seeing him picking the ball out of the net. That’s all he’s actually any good at.


10.) 21 Feb 2018 23:38:37
Personally hope we don’t sign Navas. He has been awful the last couple of years, look at unforced the errors he makes that lead directly to goals, Las Palmas two massive errors, one where he ducks under the shot because he’s not tall enough and is in a poor position the other he comes steaming out of his box with no hope of getting the ball and leaves the Las Palmas player with an open goal, Betis he literally fumbled the ball over the line from a fairly innocuous shot, Napoli he was in such a poor starting position that Insigne was able to pass the ball into the net from almost 45-50 yards, Sociedad messes around with the ball in his own area, gets tackled and the ball ends up in the net, Dortmund, struggles with a pretty easy free kick that was straight at him and pushed it straight to Aubemayang who had the most simple of finishes, last week against PSG he let in a very soft goal, Rabiots shot was not even above head height and almost right at him, yet somehow it goes in?!? These are just a very small sample of the kind of horror shows that he puts on a weekly basis! It’s no wonder they want rid of him.

I’d rather we didn’t buy a keeper if that’s the best we can do, he is as bad as Claudio Bravo in my honest opinion, as he’s weak on crosses, is far too easily beaten and he he throws himself around to look flashy. If you think we let in soft goals now, you’ve seen nothing yet.


11.) 21 Feb 2018 23:47:56
Allison is of interest to many club including Real and Roma would hold out for a record fee for the player. I can’t see Klopp sanctioning big money on a keeper. Our big signings would be in the midfiled and upfront like it has always been except VVD. I ll put my money on Ed02’s information.


12.) 22 Feb 2018 00:20:19
Westwood, he’s a very ordinary keeper who makes some really dodgy howlers that Mignolet would be crucified over. He’s not anywhere near better than any keeper on our books already, maybe with the exception of Bogdan but even that’s a close run thing. He had one decent World Cup and one good season for Madrid and that’s it. His shots faced to goals conceded is really poor. Karius is a far better keeper. By a country mile.


13.) 22 Feb 2018 08:08:06
Won't slate him if we sign him but if we do i won't have high hopes. Watched him play this season and he is not the vast improvement we need in goal. For the life of me i don't understand Klopps so called insistence in wanting him over other keepers who may be avaliable this summer. I get he is a cheaper option but I'd much rather us spend 70 million to have someone in goal who may not have 50 clean sheets a season but when called upon you know he is able to not fluff up. Navas is not that keeper.

Juventus has everything to offer except money for Can. I am sure his head would be turned again and he would choose Liverpool over Juventus. With Goretzka off to bayern liverpool will keep Can and it makes sense! He gets picked every week so why not after summer? Let's be honest there isn't any CM at the club that would displace him on current form. When Keita arrives he would play alongside Can!

Baby Driver

1.) 19 Jan 2018 15:55:54
I would imagine our wage bill is way higher than Juves if it was just about money he would sign for us. It looks like he wants to go so it must be tropheys or uncertainty over his starting place which seems unlikely since he starts every week.


2.) 19 Jan 2018 16:57:08
Well he probably will win trophies at Juve but being part of our team and winning trophies with Liverpool will feel more special, as I’m pretty sure silverware will be coming to Anfield again very soon! YNWA.

Well after watching DDG saving United to keep them in the tie, I would love the club to put more effort in securing a top class keeper in the summer. Navas is not an upgrade on Karius. I know Navas has won many things at Real so has Pedro who has looked bang average at Chelsea.

We are at a crucial stage as a team and as a club and a few good additions would seriously take us to the next level and GK is one of the most important in the list. For me Navas is a flapper and we have been on the receiving end of this thanks to Mignolet. We need a real pedigree at the back. It's all about priorities and GK along with full backs are our top most priority for the summer.

It's strange. 32 teams fight for CL and 48 fights for EL and we are left with no one to even consider for the GK.
It's not lik there is a real scarcity of GK out there.
Heard Napoli is interested in Leno to replace Reina.

Baby Driver

1.) 22 Feb 2018 10:00:37
Actually Napoli are interested in Mignolet to replace Reina believe it or not. Actually i agree about Keylor Navas being a flapper, he flaps at the easiest of shots but if it's who klopp wants, their is nothing you and i could do other than back the manager, i know you don't but i do though. Maybe Karius will continue improving and Keylor Navas ends up replacing Mignolet on the bench, no one knows.


2.) 22 Feb 2018 11:28:51
How much do you think we can offer Napoli for Reina with mignolet in part exchange?


3.) 22 Feb 2018 11:58:29
Harry - seems odd that you comment on Navas not being good enough, but then talk about how many teams there are in the EL and CL so there must be more better keepers out there. But Navas has won the CL twice in the past 2 years, so either you have to accept that he's not as bad a keeper as you're making out (or your stance on Karius has softened), or your judgement of where a top keeper has to come from is way off. Sorry I may be totally missing the point and happy to reconsider it but the team with Navas did the best out of the combined 80 teams youve mentioned as goalkeeper sources for us in each of the past two years so I'm a bit confused as to the connection between the number of teams and the quality of keepers that you're trying to draw.


4.) 22 Feb 2018 12:07:14
BD, top class GK ain't going to happen as no one would sell them to you so you can forget that happening. Also, watched Allison vs Chaktyar last night and were it not for him, Roma would have been out of the tie BUT as Ed02 has saaid, Roma won't sell and he is a non starter. Again, proves my point that NO club will sell their top GK, end of.

DDG has been improving since he was in his early 20's, being in a team with a good system to protect him while he honed his skills. You can't fast track that regardless of whatever you think as those of us who live in reality, know it does not work that way.

To me, it's about time we actually invest from within as in if Karius gets it done this season, we help him grow and realize his potential and stick by him cos the kid is talented and very competent (Ed01's terminology) . Just my opinion.


5.) 22 Feb 2018 13:10:02
I kinda agree with you BRover ( I can’t believe myself ) Sell Migs, Keep Ward and improve Karius. Save the money ( Navas is no big improvement on Karius ) . But all we could hope that Klopp thinks this way! He won’t and I am certain he would buy Navas only to break Karius confidence.


6.) 22 Feb 2018 13:13:45
Hjikle
My point is there are lot of keepers in Europe to consider.


7.) 22 Feb 2018 13:21:25
You have two points there. One, I don’t blindly trust anyone let alone Klopp! My past experience of blind trust lead me to back on Charlie Adams and Lazar Markovic's. Point number 2 is more of a question. Would Navas even consider playing second fiddle to Karius?

If we only want a Back up then Ward is free and you save good money on it. anyways! I am sorry but are we buying a back up GK? Klopp liking a player has no relevance to our opinions.


8.) 22 Feb 2018 13:22:59
Hjikle, Madrid won in spite of Navas. He’s been their weak point for over two years. His shots saved to goals conceded ratio is really poor. He makes basic errors every match and has cost Madrid points on several occasions, given that he’s poor on crosses, is easily beaten and makes lots of basic errors, it makes no sense to waste money on him if he’s not an improvement on anyone on the books. Given that he’d have done as badly on the mistakes that Mignolet has been slaughtered for and made worse then it’s a waste of money signing him, as it would be £25m+ to sit on the bench once the errors start happening and believe me, we wouldn’t be waiting long. The first cross in the box or direct free kick he would mess up.


9.) 22 Feb 2018 13:32:17
That's a fair point, but when we are considering a keeper that's been in a team ruling Europe for two years you don't think its a keeper of an acceptable standard. I appreciate the general point, but with that in mind would you say it's fair to suggest that by commenting on how many teams there are in the CL and EL, you're somewhat exaggerating how many would actually be an improvement on Karius? Definitely not arguing with you that it can be done, 50/ 50 on how vital it is that it's done and reserving some judgement until the end of the season, but I definitely think if you believe Navas is no improvement then you've definitely overstated the potential pool - in reality, there is probably more like 10 keepers not perfectly secure at a top club that could improve us.


10.) 22 Feb 2018 13:59:35
Doubt Keylor Navas would cost anywhere near 25 million £, he is 31 or 32 and Real Madrid are doing all they can to get rid. But you seem to have watched a lot of Madrid games and its worrying. Goalkeepers really are Klopp's blind spot.


11.) 22 Feb 2018 15:24:44
Hjikle,

Again my policy is simple. If we could attract, Lemar, Kieta and VVD, then we could easily attract top 10 GK’s in Europe. Do you agree? Navas in not even inside top 30 let alone top 10. We have a very good team and we are at a stage where we need players that will cement us inside top 3 for the next decade or so! Buying a back up?


12.) 22 Feb 2018 15:40:54
Sure, we could stand still and stick with the same squad next season and expect the same outcomes.

Or we could try to improve our weaknesses.

GK is number 1 weakness we could improve on in my opinion.


13.) 22 Feb 2018 15:59:49
This is random, but Newcastle has a new goalkeeper, if we're only looking for a back up for Karius!


 

 

19 Jan 2018 11:13:42
If Ed02 is around. I know arsenal and UTD have sustained interest on the player, But do you think we should be looking at Jorginho of Napoli. He is so much underrated mate. Terrific passer of the ball and he is top class in breaking up an attack.

Cheers for the reply.

Baby Driver

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has no interest in him. Fans can find plenty of players they like on games and on YouTube but given he plays primarily as a DM player it would mean a change of formation for Klopp's side. There is no doubt that Jorginho is a decent player and he will likely be available in the summer if a suitable offer is made to Napoli but I don't see Liverpool being in the mix, if for no other reason than they have other interest in Central Midfield. He is not first choice for Arsenal but they do have a sustained interest.}


1.) 19 Jan 2018 11:53:16
Thanks Ed02. Apparently he is a lot more than just a Stopper of what I have seen of him mate. He is a very good passer of the ball and I won’t be surprised if people think we might need a holding mid in the summer.
Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know what a stopper is. Jorginho can certainly play in midfield as well, but Liverpool has Keita arriving and other preferences so I would not hold your breath.}


 

 

19 Jan 2018 10:21:24
Schiller confirms Goretzka is off to Bayern! So let's strike that name from the list and hampers goes to Ed02. Said it months ago. The fat guy from Bolton has been proven wrong yet again. Khudos!
I am sure the club's next priority is to secure Emre Can's contract.
Little disappointed over Goretzka but I still think we could sign one more player in this window.

Thanks.

Baby Driver

1.) 19 Jan 2018 11:13:32
Sorry. Not on Twitter so not "in the loop", who's the fat kid from Bolton?


2.) 19 Jan 2018 11:42:44
Baby, every man and his dog paying any attention to this saga always knew he was going to Bayern. It has been on the cards since last summer during the ConFed Cup. I am not disappointed at all as I always knew it would not happen for us.


3.) 19 Jan 2018 11:59:25
Graeme Kelly.


4.) 19 Jan 2018 13:00:38
Graeme Kelly wasn't wrong, he said it was 50/ 50 chance at best.

There is no buyout clause in England. He won’t be sold for anything less than £50 mill and that is still a steal!

He is tailor made to suit Klopp’s style. Would fit in with ease. Proper wing back and what a good title player.

Lallana’s days are numbered and I am afraid his fans are going to be dissppinted end of the season. When you say he is the best ACM at the club sums up our issue in the attacking third. We will yet again rely on the front three to bail us out like they have been post Coutinho! Has he not been replaced by AOC? I mean why did we buy him then? To sit on the bench?

Nostradmus,

Depends on what kind of player Klopp wants. I would spend that sum on Doucoure at Wardord. No brainer and head and shoulders above both. PL proven and the boy will become a star in two years. He will fit in with our style. Him and Keita is what you call a proper double Pivot! Or if Klopp only wants a Madrid pedigree then Kovacic. Young and actually very good! Vision, technique, and goals!
