Liverpool close to signing Dani Ceballos as Philippe Coutinho replacement for 22m GBP.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 17:08:42
Source? Or just a guess.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 17:16:59

3.) 10 Jan 2018 17:19:27
I read in the Independent that Real Madrid were tempted to let him go for a similar amount that they paid for him (18 million euro apparently) . If it was anywhere near that price, it seems like a snip it today's market. I've not seen much of him, has anyone else particularly? From all the hype, it seems worth a pop at that price at least.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 17:19:46
Should go for Bernard from shaktor donetsk similar to coutinho get him for 40m will be a supersatr.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 17:26:56
It was originally reported by Diario Gol in Spain and then reported again in the Express.

6.) 10 Jan 2018 17:31:35
I’d see Ceballos as more of a centre midfielder than attacker like Coutinho.

7.) 10 Jan 2018 17:36:01
In that case, Dennis, Klopp would most likely want a midfielder and an attacker, seeing as Coutinho played in both positions. I don't think that would be a bad idea to be honest.

8.) 10 Jan 2018 17:37:00
@jonny4pm - his contract is up in the summer I think.

9.) 10 Jan 2018 17:18:25
The Express is reporting it:

10.) 10 Jan 2018 17:22:05
Actually the story appears to have been reported originally by Diario Gol in Spain:

11.) 10 Jan 2018 17:40:22
Cebellos just signed last summer.

12.) 10 Jan 2018 17:57:57
Hope this us true I think he could really do well with us, similar to coutinho in the sense he had a big move that didn't workout and then had to fight to prove to everyone he is as good as the hype had suggested he would be. 20 mil would be a steal!

13.) 10 Jan 2018 17:57:58
I don’t think it’s a bad idea to sign him as he’d strengthen us through the middle as he likes to tackle as well as do the pretty stuff. He’s not had a great time of it in Madrid doesn’t get on with Zidane.

14.) 10 Jan 2018 17:58:29
Cebellos was offered to us via his rep but unlikely to go any further according to ed002.

15.) 10 Jan 2018 17:56:08
I like this player, especially if the price is anywhere round £20m. Good prospect who's not got the game time at RM, but very well thought of when he was at Betis last season. As Davey Suls said, not a Couts replacement, but a great future prospect who's already on a par with the likes of Lallana, albeit not in the EPL.

16.) 10 Jan 2018 18:04:50
Would be an interesting buy if it happens, seen a few games and highlights also and he seems to be quite skillful but can be sloppy at times.

More of a player that will take abit of training and settling in rather than someone who could make an instant impact

However I am not qualified to make that assessment and so my opinion means nothing!

17.) 10 Jan 2018 18:13:54
Ed 1 what do you think of Cebellos? Is there any truth to the rumour.

{Ed001's Note - not seen him play, and I don't know what rumour you are referring to. He has been offered to a number of clubs, one of them us.}

18.) 10 Jan 2018 18:55:43
Hi Ed. I understand that we may not be interested in Cebellos but could it be the fact we haven't really scouted the player and not have a heap of information on him. As he was offered to us then perhaps he wasn't looked at previously.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I would hope that we would have plenty of information on any player in the top flight of the major 5 leagues in Europe, at the very least. The only issue might be all the background and upbringing etc checks that should be made, but that we as a club seemed to have not bothered with in recent years.}

19.) 10 Jan 2018 20:11:53
I assume that LFC would not be interested in a loan without an option to buy.

20.) 10 Jan 2018 21:12:16
5ft-10, 150ILBS, he will get eaten alive and spit out in the EPL.

21.) 10 Jan 2018 21:13:28
He’s a class player 👍.

22.) 10 Jan 2018 22:48:55
I would rather we pay more and get casemiro.

23.) 10 Jan 2018 22:50:38

Keita - 5'8" 141 lbs

Coutinho - 5'7" 157 lbs

Just saying, like.

24.) 10 Jan 2018 23:13:08
Kante 5’6” - he doesn’t get eaten alive either 🤝.

25.) 11 Jan 2018 06:54:05
I don't mind Ceballos, but not as a replacement for Coutinho. There has to be someone else that is more established as a star player to bring in and even attempt to fill Phil's shoes.



10 Jan 2018 14:46:26
Today stories were saying Mahrez is looking for a house in Liverpool. Then Ceballos met with LFC in a hotel to close the deal. Then there is Aubameyang deal maybe hijacked by LFC. And Lucas Moura agents are pushing him to LFC because Man Utd doesn't want to pay the high fees.


1.) 10 Jan 2018 15:12:31
Sounds like Wonderdogsparky is having a party and has invited some guests from abroad.

2.) 10 Jan 2018 15:24:59
It’s BS season isn’t it?

3.) 10 Jan 2018 16:12:51
He was in liverpool pyjamas i heard.

4.) 10 Jan 2018 18:50:42
Real question is which are lazy journalism and which are agents trying to bump up deals by feeding the press a diet of horse manure.



07 Jan 2018 11:47:20
Hi Ed's, wanted ask if Aubameyang is now a target for LFC. Firmino can certainly play as AM.



{Ed001's Note - nope. Why would he be when he and Klopp do not get on? Aubameyang has been a bit of a problem child.}

1.) 07 Jan 2018 12:33:46
So every player we have been linked too has been ruled out that also includes keita coming earlier this is by sky they are usually very reliable, hope klopp actually wants too replace him or strengthen the team it's needed I know we got vvd but he not enough we need more.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 12:36:29
This bloke haha shocking attitude thinks he's billy big balls.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 13:03:27
U talking bout me mate.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 13:19:11
Truth hurts hailstones 😄.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 13:22:20
I'm not sure if another attack minded player is what we need. We were OK without Coutinho in the past. It's not ideal him going midway through the season mind you.

6.) 07 Jan 2018 13:53:42
Soz mate I read that wrong.

7.) 07 Jan 2018 13:34:18

If you're Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, then yes he's talkin about you.

8.) 07 Jan 2018 13:10:08
Thanks Ed1 for the quick response. It seems that Balague said that LFC will not find a replacement this Jan. Hope that's not true.

{Ed001's Note - Ballache is a waste of space with regards to LFC news now his mate Rafa is not at the club.}

9.) 07 Jan 2018 14:43:12
Balague is an awful journalist and he gets so many things wrong but for some reason because he’s spanish and on sky people trust what he says.

10.) 07 Jan 2018 16:20:15
Hahahaha I am on another planet never mind being aubemeyang.



01 Jan 2018 03:07:21
Hi Ed's, what's happening to Clyne? Klopp doesn't seem to update his situation now. He's is out for the season?


{Ed001's Note - he is out for another month at the very least.}

1.) 01 Jan 2018 04:35:23
Clyne will be gone in the summer mate. Gomez and TAA are ahead of him in the pecking order and that won't change anytime soon considering Clyne is not very good. One thing's for sure and that is Klopp does not seem to miss him much.

{Ed0333's Note - Are you confident someone will buy Clyne mate?

2.) 01 Jan 2018 04:57:39
Well he is English for starters so some of the mid table sides could be interested otherwise offer him for free to one of the teams in the Indian Super League. The players are more Clyne's level here.

3.) 01 Jan 2018 09:42:43
I'm actually quite intrigued what Klopp does with Clyne when he comes back and is fit. We never know Klopp might really rate him and play him. Look at Mignolet for an example.

4.) 01 Jan 2018 09:58:37
What injury does he have?

{Ed025's Note - lazyitis..

5.) 01 Jan 2018 10:45:04
Back issue same as phil will get when the next bid gets rejected.

6.) 01 Jan 2018 10:55:29
IB it's because of the goalkeeper situation that has me intrigued. Clyne when fit has been a mainstay starter with Klopp. That's not me saying I rate him but just merely pointing out that Klopp may.

7.) 01 Jan 2018 10:41:43
Thanks Ed1.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

8.) 01 Jan 2018 11:06:10
I think it's been more that we haven't had a decent back up to Clyne until this season. I've read on the site all last season that Klopp doesn't rate Clyne too much and Clynes been wanting a change. So I think Gomez and TAA this season will have helped convince Klopp that clynes future is elsewhere. And if not, he'd be a good back up to TAA once Gomez moves centrally.

9.) 01 Jan 2018 11:08:02
Jayden, I am pretty sure Klopp does not rate Clyne too highly. He was a mainstay last season because Gomez was injured and TAA had just been introduced to the senior squad. Now that both have made their mark on the squad, there should be no way back for Clyne.

10.) 01 Jan 2018 11:36:33
IB I was unaware of that mate. Cheers 👍.

11.) 01 Jan 2018 11:39:10
Clyne won't be back in the squad, I bloody hope not anyway, that'd cause so much disruption, he himself must know it as well, he's nowhere near Gomez or TAA level and he's more experienced! We should look at flogging him, Sutton United FC are looking for a defender.

12.) 01 Jan 2018 11:47:15
Klopp might not want to put karius behind that defence to recieve critisism maybe the arrival of vvd will inspire a change of keeper.

13.) 01 Jan 2018 11:44:05
not a big fan of clyne but he is not as bad as people are saying there are a lot worse than him in the league poor lad been out for about 7months and people are still on his back.

14.) 01 Jan 2018 12:39:30
Clyne has been a decent player for us over the years. Ok he's not great going forward but still no reason for this grief. I trust watever Klopp does and so should all fans.

15.) 01 Jan 2018 13:06:49
decent player? please.

16.) 01 Jan 2018 13:17:28
If any of the EDDS are around,
What’s the latest on MAX MEYER, he’s available on a free, do we still have an interest in him, his form has really picked up for SCHALKE, all be it in a deeper role.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool's interestems to have drifted away or gone completely for now but another English side is still showig some interest.}

17.) 01 Jan 2018 13:24:45
I agree why is everyone on his back. Injuries happen it's part of the game ok he's not top class but has been consistent for us.

18.) 01 Jan 2018 14:20:16
Every player needs real competition for his place to acheive and maintain top performance. Clyne has that now on his return. He might surprise a few on here.

19.) 01 Jan 2018 15:50:13
If we do look to move Gomez to a more central position then Clyne will provide adequate cover for TAA, simple as that!

20.) 01 Jan 2018 17:15:57
I think it would be a backward step for him to come in, he was another of the ones who gets caught ball watching and not coming back with urgency. Doesn’t make him rubbish but he hasn’t been great in attack or defence.

21.) 01 Jan 2018 17:36:47
Mad Howe many people don't rate clyne Gomez again sloppy for burnleys equaliser.

22.) 01 Jan 2018 20:24:14
Do you not realise matt123 how old Gomez is? he's been really good for us the majority of the time, no player is perfect that simply doesn't exist mate, at his age he is going to make mistakes, he'll also learn from them, the kid is a breath of fresh air compared to Clyne.

23.) 02 Jan 2018 00:17:47
Clyne helped get us too 4th last year mate an he played loads of games for us motoring up an down that right side yeah he isn't cafu but he is a solid squad player, Gomez natural attributes is suited too centre back he is going to make mistakes but he is learning all the time, Trent aa and clyne are good options we suddenly seem too have a squad building an long-term we got Gomez vvd lovren an that world-class Estonian who scores goals hahahaha.

24.) 02 Jan 2018 08:31:21
Switching off at the back stick twice has nothing to do with how old someone is?

25.) 02 Jan 2018 09:45:34
I was told last week that Clyne will be back at the end of the month. If needed I am not agains't Clyne playing some games at rb and Gomez playing in the centre.

26.) 02 Jan 2018 10:22:47
matt123 what are you talking about? of course you have to consider his age, he's young and still learning, he's not exactly the most experienced is he? it's his first season starting for Liverpool and at his age come on give him a break. Experience comes with time, I say again, he's young, he will make mistakes from time to time, there will be more, he will learn from them as he progresses.

Sounds to me like you'd rather have Clyne in the position because Gomez has made a couple of mistakes lol maybe you should try watching Clyne before judging Gomez.

27.) 02 Jan 2018 11:00:56
Clyde is decent.

28.) 02 Jan 2018 14:42:39
Clyne is, without a shadow of doubt, our best fullback.

Gomez is a CB playing out of position and TAA is nowhere near as competent defensively.

If Clyne is fit, he starts.

29.) 02 Jan 2018 19:07:15
giantKey, it's not april fools day yet mate, I don't know how you can call Clyne our best fullback, have you actually seen him play mate?

30.) 02 Jan 2018 20:26:34
Erm, have you?

I genuinely believe a lot of the users on here don't even watch Liverpool games and just regurgitate other peoples' opinions and Youtube comments.

31.) 02 Jan 2018 22:29:22
I watch and Clyne is not a good full back - by the excrement that is served up as FBs today he is passable but he ball watches, wanders back and his final ball isn't good enough to cover that. He's about standard for a FB but to say he got us top 4 is pushing things totally. You could argue his gaffes helped stop us getting top 3.

32.) 02 Jan 2018 23:53:03
Clyne kept himself off the nosebeers then?

33.) 03 Jan 2018 00:40:44
giantKey, I have probably watched every single game he's played mate, your speaking nonsense atleast tell me what's so good about him before going on one about irrelevant stuff. I think you'll find the majority of posters here are passionate about the club and will watch the games. Making a comment like that I doubt you do? if you think Clyne is the best fullback we have, I think it's pretty obvious. I can handle 'Clyne is somewhat decent' but to say he's the best fullback we have is having a laugh lol.

TAA is better then Clyne and he's nowhere near as experienced, but he's still learning.

Gomez can play both positions, he's not playing out of position at all, sure I'd love to see him at CB because I feel that's where he should be, having said that he's playing well at RB so what's the problem. See, Gomez makes a couple of errors and suddenly certain 'fans' go against him and turn to Clyne as if he's been missed.



25 Jul 2017 15:26:44
Paul Joyce of The Times, Chris Bascombe of The Telegraph, James Pearce of The Liverpool Echo, and Melissa Reddy of Goal; all of them are saying LFC will not be putting in the 3rd bid.

LFC were led (by the agent I think) to think they RBL were willing to sell NB but seeing that RBL were not going to be sincere in negotiating a deal, had decided that they will not be putting in the 3rd bid.


1.) 25 Jul 2017 15:58:25

{Ed002's Note - Keep your moronic abuse off the site.}

2.) 25 Jul 2017 16:58:33
If we have to give up up Keita but then keep Coutinho and Can and bring in VVD I'd be a very happy man with this window.

3.) 25 Jul 2017 17:27:55
I'm disappointed that we probably won't get Keita and I've never seen the guy play. excuse me while I go give my head a wobble.

4.) 25 Jul 2017 17:58:36
RBL was never selling and Ed02 alluded to RBL issuing some type of warning to Keita's agents (pls, clarify this, Ed) so this maybe what the OP is referring to. Reports have already stated that RBL has slammed the door shut on any bids for Keita and it is time for us to move on and use the RBL tactics on Barcelona regarding Couts. Not for sale at any price.

5.) 25 Jul 2017 18:13:21
Like most of us on this site Ben, Keita has somehow become the difference between winning the league and relegation. I think we all need to give ourselves a slap around the mush and remember how good we were most of last season without Keita the messiah.

6.) 25 Jul 2017 21:09:16
I love how keeping our players is now seen as a successful window.

200 mil to spend, biggest summer in years, we're going to smash the transfer record, not once, not twice but three times!

Keep Coutinho and Can - best summer in years! LOL.

7.) 25 Jul 2017 23:47:48

{Ed002's Note - You have to stop trolling posts.}

8.) 26 Jul 2017 06:14:48
We are going after players who their clubs want to keep. That's a good sign. That's the kind of player the likes of Real and Barcelona typically go after.

The only problem is you risk not getting them, and you risk making a nuisance of yourself with other clubs, as Real and Barcelona have done, and which we are now in danger of doing.

A "successful window" is not signing lots of players who end up going on loan to one club after another for the rest of their LFC careers. We tried it. It doesn't work.

9.) 26 Jul 2017 11:50:32
Whereas he's certainly not the difference between winning the league and relegation, he's certainly likely to be the difference between finishing in the top four and a good cup campaign.

Carra spotted Rues in Liverpool!?!


1.) 31 Jan 2018 14:53:15
Isn't he injured. think he'd struggle to pass a medical :D.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 15:30:14
He was being sarcastic 🤦🏽‍♀️.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 15:39:57
Pretty sure you can pass a medical injured, didn’t we sign Aquilani while he was out injured?
Obviously I know that we are not signing Reus before anyone says it!

{Ed002's Note - It is not a passd, it is a failure the club see as a low risk.



29 Jan 2018 11:41:56
Hi Eds, you think we may have a signing or two come deadline day or we shouldn't hold our breaths?


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea.}

1.) 29 Jan 2018 12:15:59
I'd put money on it that we don't. I think we're done.

2.) 29 Jan 2018 12:19:56
Hold your breath and let’s see 😜.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 12:23:22
we should do, but we won't so now we have to hope salah and firmino stay fit and in form, its one hell of a gamble klopp is taking imo.

4.) 29 Jan 2018 12:58:12
united and Arsenal have definitely strengthened. We're risking falling out of this top four what a stupid decision selling him mid season.

5.) 29 Jan 2018 13:06:04
Major signing announcement - we're about to sign with Tesco as the official grocery store of LFC!

6.) 29 Jan 2018 13:24:05
No, it was not a stupid decision selling him mid season. What is unhelpful and dishonest, is to continuously blame the club for trying to hold on to a player who acted horrendously and dreadfully, threatening to go on strike and make the DR a living hell, just to get a move. Klopp did the right thing and that is that. Nothing is new here as the Ed's told us all that was going on behind the scenes BUT feel free to moan about it cos hey, that is much easier to do.

7.) 29 Jan 2018 13:28:00
Arsenal got rid of their top scorer and bought a moody midfielder, he's good on his day but I think if they had a real choice of Sanchez or Henrikh they would have taken the former. don’t see how that makes them stronger.

As for utd, all they’ve done is bought another bus conductor to shore up their defence :)

8.) 29 Jan 2018 14:23:54
Give it a rest Brover, you do anything to back up either ridiculous decisions made by the club or are always pulling down other peoples opinions,
He should NOT have gone in this window, he was under contract and should have been told he was staying till the summer, if you think carrying on without our best player or replacing said player is a good idea then you are wrong.
Any club would miss their best player but to sell him when we have momentum is daft, i suppose we're going to bring the kids in are we? Oxlade is maybe as good? Klopp has a plan and knows what he's doing? The goalkeepers aren't as bad as people say they are? Lallana can do his job?
Ive been a fan for 40 years and as much as i've seen some cracking football this season i've also seen the usual nonsense that happens season in season out, ill always support who we have at the club through thick and thin but i won't blindly champion anyone who thinks sub standard is good enough for Anfield as it isnt.

9.) 29 Jan 2018 14:41:37
Bro, your right in that we just had to sell Couts, and we did get a very good price for him, but looking back, would it have been better to have sold him last summer, giving us time to find a suitable replacement,
as it stands, Klopp is looking like a fool, for having a lot of money, but a really un balanced midfield,
these last two defeats has put a lot of pressure on Klopp and the team, and we seem to have gone from great team to a team about to lose ground fast .

10.) 29 Jan 2018 19:33:10
Happy, Klopp wanted Cou sold in the summer as he was fed up with his disgraceful conduct and had Lemar been there and all went well, Lemar would be here and Cou would have been sold. It did not happen that way, regardless of how you or I may feel about it. This was already spoken about on these boards.

Now you or I saying Klopp looks like a fool for not signing players he does not want to make him not look like a fool, is just hilarious. No manager or leader worth his salt, thinks that way and if he does, he's in the wrong job. Klopp is not that insecure, my friend.

As a manager, you do what you think is best for the team. If you go against what you believe and do things others want and things go south, who do you think is getting the blame? YOU! The same people you tried to please, will say "well, he's the manager it's up to him to do what is best for the team". See how that works. It is hard to be a manager and if you start doing what other people want then you might as well quit. I don't wan Klopp to do what I want. I want him to do what is best for the team and we will have to trust him cos we trusted him before the two losses so what changed? Nothing, IMO.

11.) 29 Jan 2018 19:37:17
Super, The info I have is the same one you have. The one the Ed's give us. All the stuff you just spouted about us needing to have forced Cou to stay cos he has a contract blah, blah, blah shows how little you know about football's inner workings or how much of the truth (per, the Ed's) you choose to ignore so you can moan and slate the manager and the owners. BTW.



23 Aug 2017 22:02:22
Did I just heard Klopp say that with CL now they can sign contracts and fulfill our ambitions, is he implying Can and new players?


1.) 23 Aug 2017 23:38:10
I actually went back and listened to the youtube clip of this 3 times. It's open to interpretation. He could have meant what you said. It can also be taken to mean that being in the Champions League is what he talks about "when extending contracts, signing new players and talking about fulfilling dreams".

I hope it means we have a busy week ahead. Get in a CB, and a defensive midfielder. If Coutinho leaves, he leaves.



15 Aug 2017 12:47:42
Dear Eds, looks like RBL is circulating Kieta's news again about bids an how much they would get this year or next. Are they changing their stances? Have you heard anything about this since Macca did say something may happen this/ next week?


{Ed002's Note - Another club has approached them, hence the question.}

1.) 15 Aug 2017 13:18:46
Juve? He will have to go house hunting in Turin whilst finding the best barbers 😂.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 13:22:03
They wouldn't afford him!

3.) 15 Aug 2017 13:24:49
Ed002 who's the other club interested? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal, Inter, Juventus.}

4.) 15 Aug 2017 13:58:51
I'd be surprised if any of these teams would pay £70m+.



30 Jul 2017 10:46:19
Hi Eds, two questions here.

1. Are we in a position to say "No" to Barcelona for Coutinho like what RBL and Soton did to us for Keita and VVD?

2. What's the situation with Ings anyway? If Moreno can play, why can't he? Is he injured or something?

Thanks for the good work.


{Ed002's Note - (1) Yes Liverpool can say "No" but they are aware of the efforts the player and his agent have been making. I expect them to resist a sale. (2) Ings has only just returned to full training - I don't understand your comparison to Moreno.}

Meant Mane maybe?

Is the report a week or so back that Klopp took coutinho aside and told him he is not selling him and Coutinho just sort of accepted it and just got on with it true? Wishful thinking a bit?

It will be the same efforts Keita and his agents are making trying to get a move to Liverpool. He has a contract, make him stay at least for the season. Liverpool just have to take the same stance as RBL.

I disagree, he wouldn't have played Salah and Firmino if he wanted to lose. It's dangerous to draw the match and face a replay next week, so why put those two in as substitute?

We have to offload before buying, Klopp already said that. If the likes of Grujic, Origi, Ings, Markovic can be offloaded, I think the Fekir deal can happen this season.

The Ox injury must have freaked the LFC people when they dealt with Fekir's medical report.


{Ed002's Note - Obviously not.}

LFC is playing CM2018, sell players for good prices, then use money buy good players.
