Hi eds and all, is there a plan/ idea for Liverpool to actually make an approach to sign werner? Understand that we have supposedly acted inappropriately again but is there a plan from the club to make an effort to sign him?

Also I hear Karius is linked to a move to Wolves to replace the outgoing Ruddy is there anything in that rumor?

Stay safe and well all.

{Ed002's Note - The club would need to approach RBL in order to buy the player - obviously there is interest. There is also interest from elsewhere of course.

Loris Karius (G) Liverpool find him back on the doorstep and will need to find a solution - perhaps a reduced price and an early exit - CSKA and Hertha Berlin offer opportunities - does not wish to return to Turkey although there is interest from there. With Boeckx getting toward the end of his career and Roef's departure this summer already agreed Anderlecht would like him to challenge first choice Van Crombrugge. Wolves need cover, but Karius would not be first choice there - and regular playing time is what he will be after.}

Any updates at all on when or how the premier league will be starting again? And if I may, any updates on transfers, Werner is being excessively mentioned?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - (a) No, there are placeholders for dates but there is no decision over venues yet, issues over a response to the 100 point letter over medical concerns, meetings to be held with three cities whose mayors are against the return and other odds and ends. (b) The Werner situation remains unchanged - Liverpool have not approached his club and as far as I know have continued to tap him up illegally. Another side has held some further talks with RBL but they are not confident anything can be done. As far as other players who have ben looked at; Victor Osimhen can be struck off the list; Leicester have now made an approach to Wigan for Joe Gelhardt who Liverpool and Everton are keen on; Piotr Zielinski can be scratched.}

25 May 2020 12:07:34
Interesting to see we were still interested in Zielinski after so long. Delighted we ended up with Gini though, and hope he signs a new contract soon.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No more than a wildcard but the closest match to Adam Lallana and Napoli have been in some turmoil but they are now settling. And of course a Klopp favourite, and a very good player.}

25 May 2020 13:23:09
Ed, you keep mentioning Liverpool have 'tapped' up Werner illegally. How have they done this. I only ask because I watched the Alan Shearer interview recently when he stated that Sir Alex Ferguson and Kevin Keegan both phoned him about moving even though he was under contract at Blackburn with no desire to move. Also, didn't Cristiano Ronaldo have a word in De Ligt's ear during a game convincing him to join Juve. How is this different.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Putting aside Ronaldo which is of no relevance, Ferguson made an illegal approach to Shearer. This does not make it right for Klopp to constantly cheat. It is against the rules and totally unacceptable. Liverpool still need to sort their act out or at some point they will get another ban.}

25 May 2020 13:38:00
Think that would be a good for Gelhardt.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2020 14:17:51
Ed why haven’t they approached RB over Werner like I just don’t get that like tap the lad up then say ah leave it there!

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Obviously, and not for the first time, Liverpool are disrupting a player of another side. Perhaps Liverpool will do the honest thing and approach RBL with a very good offer to tempt them to sell?}

25 May 2020 14:32:37
Why haven’t they approached RB if they want him like what gain is there going to the player 1st (obviously it turns his head ) but what else and who’s the gob person doing the tapping up, klopp?

Agree0 0Disagree

How do a club like red bull grant permission to speak for a player

Is it only after a offer is accepted.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - The same way as any other club do. The process should be along the lines of: Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. There may be some broad discussion on the sort of deal that would be offered but no more than that. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak to a player's agent formally to negotiate about a transfer and even to the player about actually making a move. This will typically involve the showing of serious interest (perhaps through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak formally to the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the package that will be involved. Many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.}

Just read about Liverpool being interested in Adama Traore? Probably just nonsense in the papers but where would he fit in? Back up to Trent/ Salah? Then what about Minamino?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approach for Traore from Liverpool - another side enquired and were quoted a ridiculous price. Liverpool do not have the funds to buy expensive squad players, he would therefore be a replacement for Salah as his natural position is RW. I would think a move unlikely.}

24 May 2020 16:31:28
Journalists have got nothing to run so are making stuff up, we won't be buying any RW/ LW starters unless others move on.

Agree5 0Disagree

24 May 2020 13:41:04
Sky Sports are saying 4 of the top 6 clubs want Josh King, is Liverpool one of them? He is a cheaper option to Werner and I think would qualify as HG?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware - Manchester United tried to sign him in January. He is HG.}

24 May 2020 23:10:54
That signing would make zero sense. Might as well give Brewster the minutes.

Agree0 0Disagree

Just read Bayern not likely to make Coutinho loan permanent, such a shame a great talent going backwards. Loved him when he was with us but we are a better team without him. Any ideas were he ends up?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Philippe Coutinho (AM/LW) after missing out on Bruno Fernandes and Hakim Ziyech Spurs have enquired after Coutinho and been told that a loan fee would €30M for a season with an option to buy at €50M at the end of the season with any loaning club paying half his wages. I would expect any interested side to look for a significant reduction in such a deal. The player is being offered around PL sides. Barcelona will have to keep him if no takers are found although with a small amount of money owed to Liverpool still there may be room for them to negotiate - but I don't expect them to be interested. Leicester might offer a solution to get him off the books - but again there would be a need for some negotiation. Right now Barcelona will likely cut their losses and get the best deal they can as soon as they can - his representative may look to some sort of creative deal with an English side - but that could cause a delay.}

24 May 2020 15:37:18
would wages be a problem for Leicester and spurs on permeant deals ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - His wage demands would have to drop considerably from his €215 per week to move to any side on a permanent basis.}

24 May 2020 18:43:04
I think if Barcelona would deal at £50m we should really consider taking him back as long as he would take a good reduction of wages.

Also would love Timo Werner. If we could sell a few, Origi, Shaqiri, Lovren and Wilson for example we might make enough to cover one of them signings. Also with the wages saved from them along with Llanana who I suspect will move on so Coutinho taking his position in the squad.

Hi eds,

I hope you're well and keeping safe.

We've seen LFC linked to loads of strikers (Werner, Osimhen etc) to potentially replace Origi. However, I believe that this doesn't make sense, given the fact that I doubt these players would move to sit ln the bench.

In your opinion, who do you think would be a good replacement, sensible for Origi? I would have said Brewster but I think that another loan to Swansea makes sense.


Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There has been no suggestion that Origi is to be sold. I would think Brewster will be able to go on loan and Swansea would be a good destination.}

22 May 2020 20:47:57
Ive kept track of Swansea games this season and actually watched Brewster live v derby for a works function and I think another season on loan there would be a good move. For me the key being Steve Cooper. It’s evidently clear he believes in him from their history and that would mean if he did go back there then he would get lots of game time again which can only be good for the lad.

Agree2 0Disagree

23 May 2020 09:55:53
I would much rather buy a winger/ wide forward as both Mane and Salah can play up front but not many can play in their positions in the current squad.
Not saying Sancho but someone of that ilk.

Agree1 0Disagree

23 May 2020 19:56:47
Werner can play LW too The Natural.

Hi Ed’s

I know there has been mentions of a reduction in sales and more loan deals. With the impending restrictions of how many senior players you are allowed out on loan.

Do you think this will push the prices down further?

Chelsea, city, Watford to name a few have way more senior players out on loan than what they will he allowed.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - There are no limits to the number of players that can go out on loan - the usual summer cull of players who could be released will give a better indication of where it will head. Prices will drop which then leads to fewer players moving. I don't understand your last sentence, sorry.}

23 May 2020 21:36:51
Apologies Ed’s I thought that the 20/ 21 season they were implementing regulation to limit players out on loan.

I was using those clubs as examples who have significant numbers out on loan.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - OK. I think you misunderstand. The limit only relates to non HG over 21.}

21 May 2020 11:34:58
Hi Eds, I know you have told us that Madrids priority is Mbappe this summer but with the financial situation as it is now and PSG not wanting to sell are we coming to a situation where they might switch fire to Mane. I'm sure we wouldn't want him to move on and he seems happy but I always worry when the 2 big Spanish clubs come calling. I may be worrying over nothing as Mane would also be very expensive and almost impossible to replace like for like.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Madrid want to take Mbappe this summer but there is indeed resistance from PSG who don't want to sell. That situation may change is PSG can bring a player in that they desire. In terms of Sadio Mane, Real Madrid are still looking at a major revamp and are using Eden Hazard on the LW which was not their plan. They have plans to bring in a specific RW/S in mind and a couple of alternatives but are likely to hold on to Asensio who they would rather let move on once fully fit - which he may not have proven by the summer. They have a bunch of senior players they have available for horse trading, particularly James Rodriguez, Isco and Bale and will look to include them in any major deal. I am not aware of any direct approach to the club for Mane at this time and it sounds rather speculative that they would go down that route - but he will perhaps be in their thoughts as it is not working out terribly well for Vinicius Jr at this time either. Mane is also seen as a possible Neymar replacement by PSG and by Barcelona as an option to Neymar. But again - there has been no approach to Liverpool.}

21 May 2020 14:01:38
That's put my mind at ease a bit, just read that the finances involved for neymar might make it impossible for Barcelona this summer as clubs can't afford to invest in the players they wish to let go. Perhaps it will be next summer before the high profile moves return.
