Is it true that Diaz represents have met Barcelona and they could buy him? I thought they was skinny?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2024 17:14:21
Be a shame if he goes as he’s exciting to watch and far from our worst player. But if he wants the move (and his Dad has certainly made out he does) then he is probably quite easily replaceable. We’ll get a big chunk of cash for him, and there is an embarrassment of riches right now in terms of top left wingers. If he goes then Kvaratskhelia is who I think we should go for but there is plenty of options out there so the club will have plenty of choice.

26 May 2024 17:47:47
In my opinion he can be exciting but equally frustrating in that there’s plenty of energy and endeavour but lacking in end product. Sounds like he’s been pushing for a move to Barcelona for a while now. What will be will be.

26 May 2024 18:19:17
Diaz has been very good this season but with his miss rate I think the right price move him on.

26 May 2024 18:30:08
If they can find someone daft enough to take Raphinha off their hands then I can see it happening. I think we’d probably look at Summerville given that Leeds haven’t gone up.

26 May 2024 19:19:51
Rumours now saying Summerville and Archie Gray.
I’m not convinced Summerville is good enough and Gray is too young and in my opinion a player we don’t need.
What’s everyone’s thoughts on the duo?
And if possible Ed1 what’s your views on this being realistic and your opinion on how good these two are.

{Ed001's Note - both are very raw and neither look quite ready for a team challenging for the title to me.}

26 May 2024 20:03:12
I assume he has told Edwards and Slot he wants to leave and they gave him permission to talk to Barcelona? Or is this just Barcelona trying to spread enough of a rumour that it turns Diaz head. I don't like this South American attitude that Barcelona is the destination and Lfc is a step on the way. p. poor to say i want to play for Barcelona when you play for Liverpool.

26 May 2024 20:05:45
Our transfer targets cannot be guys like Gray and Yoro. We need to use our own academy to pad out the squad, and spend money on players ready to improve our starting XI.

26 May 2024 20:25:34
Watched Leeds 2day and thought summerville and gray both v poor. Neither looked near ready for jump to a champ league team. Obviously it couldve been just bad day for the pair and the team but to replace diaz with summerville at present time is putting us backwards not forwards.

26 May 2024 18:08:35
Can Barcelona even afford him ED002. I imagine he'll be 60 - 70 million.

Can they afford that?
Have I overvalued him?

Personally I'd be disappointed to see him go because if he adds better end product he is going to be one of the best on the planet. Definitely a keeper in my book.

{Ed002's Note - Sure - their issue is largely wages. They meed to make space.}

26 May 2024 22:04:58
Definitely a player I think we can do without, lots of fancy skill but not enough end product and at an age when that's unlikely to improve regardless of what Davey Sulls thinks. Take Barcelona for as much as possible and spend it well, Coutinho style!

26 May 2024 22:27:49
Diaz is the one we should build our frontline around. Always looks better when getting lots of the ball. I’d move every forward we have on before Diaz given form and injury records.

{Ed025's Note - really Brummy?, bit of a headless chicken for me mate, fast and has a bit of skill but i get the feeling he does not know what he is actually doing most of the time...but maybe thats just me..

26 May 2024 22:10:21
Summerville isn’t an upgrade he’s bang average at best and was awful today.
Just hope Arni doesn’t bring in dross like ten pints Eric has done down the east lancs.

27 May 2024 04:48:31
Can anybody answer the OP’s original question?

{Ed001's Note - his reps have met Barca yes. No idea if they could or would want to buy him, but he does want to go there. }

27 May 2024 03:10:00
Ed, tbh he do look good when he first coming to the club and when Mane move to the CF position. Don't really know what happen to that player. Maybe it was injury that happen to him after that. Now he do look like he can dribble past few players and then doesn't know what to do after that.

27 May 2024 06:17:59
I don't know if anyone not noticing it, but his dad has been yapping a lot about wanting his son to play at Barca. Diaz has been quiet about it, but his dad has talk about Barcelona a lot.

27 May 2024 07:09:03
mfahmee2 I think it's you not noticing it, his dad has been banging on for ages about playing for Barca, the Columbians even kidnapped him to shut him up because he was doing everybody's head in.

27 May 2024 08:06:32
MK Scouser-It seems to me that LFC want to position themselves similarly to a club like Dortmund or RBL, so that we can attract the very best future prospects like Bellingham.

We bought Nallo but maybe Yoro is a few steps further down the line and is ready for men's football? He could be worth 50m after only 1 season at a bigger club, but again, Real are the first choice of so many young players. Perhaps though, we could compete with them if we offer a faster route to the first team and trophies.

27 May 2024 09:23:28
Straight swap for de jong,

27 May 2024 09:37:36
Who knows what background and possible struggles a player has endured, and why they may have the dreams that they do.
If Diaz and family want to go, then make sure Barcelona are fleeced for as much as possible.

We need more clinical/ consistent goal scorers next season, and I personally would be glad to see an additional player bought in to bed in prior to Mo's possible departure in a year's time.
Ed's any ideas if FSG will allow Mo to leave on a free, and how does a club manage/ play such situations when a player wants to run a contract down whilst the club wants to get a fee?

27 May 2024 09:36:38
Get rid of him. Lots of skill like Ed says but zilch end product. Finds himself in great positions constantly and squanders a lot of opportunities. He’s light years away from the quality of Manè too. Summerville isn’t an upgrade, but would be a good addition to the squad. A quality replacement would need to be factored in. Who that is I don’t know.

27 May 2024 10:29:10
Ed1, do you think that if Diaz is to be sold, just use Gakpo to replace him? he's been very good in last few matches on the left. I just want to see what he can do if he is allow to play on the left on full time instead of moving around without a fix position.

{Ed001's Note - I would play Gakpo on the left anyway, rather than Diaz. More end product. }

27 May 2024 11:19:41
Looking at all the reports today after Leeds failed to gain promotion, it seems Summerville is very much the favourite to sign for us if Diaz does go. Apparently Slot is a big fan. At least we have Gakpo and Jota who can play LW in case there is a long bedding in period.

{Ed002's Note - Crysencio Summerville (RW/LW) Leeds have no interest in selling but his agent is looking for a step up and speaking with clubs about him - he has certainly approached Chelsea and Spurs and I suspect others. Bayer Leverkusen have spoken directly with Leeds. Agent is close to Aston Villa and the City Football Group. Any move will likely depend on promotion being gained or not and now a move seems like even though Leeds will look for a new contract. I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach yet but I understand Slot is a fan of the youngster from advice given to him by Sipke Hulshoff - who knows him well. If he were to replace Salah, there has to be an element of risk but he may become first choice.}

27 May 2024 11:02:19
Ed001 I agree. Their stats are very similar TBH in terms of games/ goals. Stick with Gakpo on the left, Nunez and Jota can also play there, but Gakpo can also do a job upfront if needed soore versatile than Diaz. If Diaz is agitating for a move then get top dollar and buy that new top class DM that we really need.

27 May 2024 11:55:03
Thank for amazing responses guys I don’t think we need to buy a replacement we have gakpo who is much better and is natural in the tactic of left winger. We can bring back carvalho and we have lots of cover then because jones jota and Nunez can play position carvalho has scored over ten games I recall which is very good returns on record so we can take money and update the defensive side of the situation.

27 May 2024 12:14:34
“we have gakpo who is much better”

Is he “much better”?

Gakpo has blown very hot and cold but did finish the season well to be fair to him. Jury still out for me on Gakpo personally

I think overall Diaz had a better season and with a slice more luck would have had at least 5 more goals (hit the woodwork a lot) .

27 May 2024 12:52:20
Yes navy I do believe gakpo to be better he has been playing at striker not his natural ability he likes left winger and is when he plays his best ball, carvalho and szob could also go out to there and alternator.

27 May 2024 13:41:04
I’d sell Diaz just because of his dad. I mean the bloke has disrespected our club! We bent over backwards to help Diaz through the terrible times and rightly so. We paid to bring his dad here to this country and the thanks we get is his dad constantly talking about his son moving else where while our season was falling apart. I just think Diaz should have told his dad to shut up at least untethered season was finished! Move him on and find someone who wants to play for our club.

27 May 2024 16:30:07
Ed 25 you must not have seen the other headless chickens we have up top then ? best of a bad bunch is Diaz imo.

{Ed025's Note - he is certainly a threat Brummy but i must say that if i was picking the side i would replace him with Darwin mate..

25 May 2024 07:41:03
Hey Ed's

Is leny Yoro a realistic target this summer seen a few articles on him and us but it does state Madrid are really keen and psg could go all in on him .

Not seen him play only seen the highlight reel but he looks like a very good reader of the game for a young lad and he looks exceptional on the ball also again YouTube made lazar markovich look like the next messi so thought to seek the input of the gurus and see what the real deal is on the lad . Definitely looks a talent like.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree2 Disagree6

25 May 2024 11:41:03
Best young CB talent in the world right now.

25 May 2024 12:18:45
@FPF - that’s one of those statements we’re we need to imagine the words “in my opinion” at the start isn’t it?

25 May 2024 12:47:06
Quansa, best young CB will continue to develop and in my opinion will push Konate out the team and he will be requesting a move, any Cb brought in will be to replace Konate and Virg long term. Last 3 games he grew in confidence. Huge potential.

25 May 2024 12:47:37
WDW - well, that’s just like your opinion, man.

25 May 2024 14:09:40
???@FPF.

25 May 2024 14:35:14
Never seen him, you think he be worth that kind of money then FPF?

25 May 2024 15:07:05
June, not sure what fee is being touted but if you are looking for a Virgil successor then Yoro is it. Obviously PSG and Real think so.

25 May 2024 17:06:37
Even though he plays RCB instead of LCB, is that right FPF?

25 May 2024 17:42:08
Van Dijk and a new CB beside him with Konate and Quansah as cover is the way to go. Sign players to start and make the current starters the squad players.

25 May 2024 18:12:50
Liverbirdsoars - he’s that good it doesn’t matter.

25 May 2024 18:26:38
Ok FPF, hopefully we get him so?. don't necessarily agree with that Onekiss, any new guy has to prove he's better than the other 2.We shouldn't forget how good ibou Was for most of the season.

25 May 2024 19:32:19
Sadly, it looks unlikely. He’s in the Mendes stable so Real, PSG beckons.

{Ed002's Note - Or somewhere else?}

25 May 2024 20:15:49
Yeah Ed - basically not LFC.

{Ed002's Note - Leny Yoro (CB) Lille kiddie who already has PSG, Chelsea and Real Madrid declaring an interest. Manchester City and Manchester United have sent scouts and Manchester City may be keen to do something. May have been noticed by Liverpool when scouting another player against Nantes, but no declared interest at this time - regardless of reports saying they will pay €90M plus for him. And Liverpool have preferred CB targets. Lille will resist a sale and continue to work on a new contract unless someone pays significantly over the odds for him - but if a new contract cannot be agreed they will need to reduce their asking price as he moves in to the final year of his contract. Chelsea has a preferred option but Real Madrid may push but knowing the player has made it clear he wants to join them - and that perhaps putting PSG off rather. Lille will ask for a player on loan as part of any deal with Real Madrid or Chelsea with specific players already mentioned.}

26 May 2024 07:57:23
Don’t think he’s a Chelsea graduate so doubt we’re interested.

Please say he’s not coming to the premier league Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - He may be, but he wants Real Madid.}

26 May 2024 10:46:58
That’s ok, he can go to Madrid and become like Varane.

{Ed002's Note - I don't think that is a good reason to turn on the youngster Ron.}

26 May 2024 11:19:31
€90m on an 18 year old has Chelsea/ Real Madrid written all over it. Think about some of the teen stars in football who tailed off to varying degrees after all the hype.

Walcott - Next Henry
Vaughan - Next Rooney
Januzaj - better than Ronaldo
Macheda - Next Van Nistelrooy
Ceballos - Next Xavi
Flanagan - Scouse Cafu
Smith-Rowe - Croydon De Bruyne
Sanches - future Balon D’or winner
Rodwell - future England captain
Barkley - better than Gerrard

If I’m spending €90m on a player I want someone with at least 3 years of top quality performances behind them. If I want a teenager with potential then I’ll take someone out the academy for free, please. I’ve only seen Yoro play a couple of times in the Europa league but from that admittedly small sample size he looks like he’s still developing. Not the right signing in my opinion even if he is potentially going to be top class. We don’t need to take risks. I’m still ecstatic we dodged Romeo Lavia who everyone convinced themselves wasn’t just a run of the mill academy product having a half decent break through campaign. He’s a prime example why you don’t sign teenagers for big money. For every 1 Rooney you get 50 Lavia’s.

26 May 2024 11:33:15
Very harsh on Lavia. He got injured. I was one of those that hoped we would sign him after our Ugarte chase ended. We can’t say he’s washed already.

26 May 2024 11:49:21
Cheers Ed. So what you’re saying is Liverpool could sign him by paying over the odds. You can’t get my hopes up like that lol.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has different targets in mind.}

26 May 2024 13:54:07
We should really be giving Van den Berg a chance. Him + VVD Konate Quansah are Gomez is more than good enough in terms of CB options, our problem defensively last season was coaching / tactics not individual quality.

26 May 2024 17:03:43
I’m sure Yoro is talented, but if we pay €90m for a CB this summer it better be Saliba, Dias or Bastoni. No other CB’s in Europe right now are worth that much.

26 May 2024 19:47:00
Not turning on him Ed002, Verane did well as a young French centre back in Madrid.

26 May 2024 21:21:08
I understand anyone coming in needing to prove they’re better or earn their spot but we haven’t won any of the big prizes for years I think the current players are still trying to prove they’re good enough. Bring top players in and have the current lads fight for their places back.

27 May 2024 04:54:50
Out of genuine curiosity, what sort of “a chance” should SvdB get in the coming pre-season? Hasn’t he been given a chance in the last three pre-seasons? Hasn’t he been monitored by the club whilst on loan for the past three seasons? What is it that is going to be different this pre-season? I get it’s a new manager this pre-season but . i reckon the last one and his staff knew what they were doing.

27 May 2024 07:52:05
He was too good to sit on the bench or be playing for the reserves, he's still really young and allowing him to play every week at a high level was clearly the best option. Personally I'd like us to load him out to a prem team this year.

27 May 2024 08:19:51
WDW, in 2/ 3 previous pre-seasons he's been packed off to his loan clubs late June or early July so we've barely seen him in a red shirt. Was the right thing to do as he got to spend those 2 pre-seasons with his loan clubs. But as a result he's only actually spent one full pre-season at the club in the last 3 seasons and he got 45 minutes of pitch time in a friendly against Crystal Palace.

I think all people want is him to be given a fair crack and maybe even start the season with us. He can always move on in January if things don't work out. Surely that is better than spending 60-90m euros on some other 18-22 year old CB from Europe? Sepp's got every bit as much chance to succeed as they would given his performances last season.

24 May 2024 15:01:45
Liverpool reportedly interested in Mainz player, Brajan Gruda. 19 year old German right winger. If we signed him it would indicate Salah might stay one more year as Grudas's unlikely to hit the ground running and replace Mo's goals overnight.

Agree5 Disagree0

24 May 2024 15:22:12
Everyone thinks we need a right winger to replace Salah of he leaves, but personally I think Diaz was better when he played on the right, he didn't need to cut inside everytime.

24 May 2024 18:05:05
Dominik Szoboszlai?

24 May 2024 18:51:58
Not massively in favour of sticking Szoboszlai on the wing, but, he’s played there before successfully at his previous clubs, he’s quick over a sprint and distance, he’s got a few tricks and can beat a defender, he’s physically strong and great passer and has an eye for goal. Definitely worth giving him a go as he could be the answer.

24 May 2024 21:57:42
I wonder where Dom fits in next season.

{Ed025's Note - Accrington?.. :)

25 May 2024 07:22:58
Who are they?

25 May 2024 07:58:36
Salah seems like he’ll be staying but if he does go who says that we will want to replace ‘like for like’? If we play a different style / formation we might require a different type of player for the right side.

25 May 2024 08:27:27
I see Mo has got his hair and beard tidied up alot, definitely off to Saudi. :)

25 May 2024 10:03:33
@Dhfc - exactly!

25 May 2024 10:09:02
Accrington Stanley, who are they?!

25 May 2024 11:33:28
VV my goodness, I thought you were describing Gerrard not Dom.

25 May 2024 19:45:39
I agree with Diaz on the RW - he played well there and got in behind and put in some dangerous balls into the box. Diaz is good down the left but not quite clinical enough to be cutting inside and shooting IMO, I prefer Nunez or Jota doing that if we’re going to play inverted wingers.

26 May 2024 08:03:45
‘No thanks’ to Gruda.

To play that position in the PL you either need elite speed or elite close control.

Salah had both so he was elite, but he’s lost his pace.
Gruda has neither.

Please scout better.

26 May 2024 17:58:54
polecat, That only means he's off to wetherspoons for a nice evening surely. Bet Mo's been seen wearing a Ben Sherman shirt too.

23 May 2024 12:18:33
Hi Ed002,

Many thanks for the responses you've been providing lately (I don't want to spam thanks on every post you respond to of mine but I appreciate it! ) .

You've mentioned we have interest in Koopmeiners from Atalanta, but I'm wondering if we also have any in his midfield partner Ederson? He seems to me to be a better fit for what we're looking for in that he's more defensively orientated.

Cheers Ed.

{Ed002's Note - Beyond what I have said previously the situation with him will become clearer on Monday or Tuesday I think.}

Agree5 Disagree12

23 May 2024 13:38:32
Hey Eds, was wondering what happened to Florentino Luis this past season? Last summer he was all the rage and the next best thing in the CDM role, but his name has dropped off circulation since.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool moved on a long time ago and ended up with Endo.}

Agree1 Disagree3

23 May 2024 16:51:10
Vasco de Gama to be FSG's nect aquisition, cutting out the middle men?

24 May 2024 09:00:27
Are we thinking Liverpool and Ava’s o players won’t need an agent as they will only ever transfer between the two clubs?

23 May 2024 11:26:31
Ed - any world in which we would be in for Bruno G from Newcastle? Seems to have a release clause and would be perfect for us in the DM role imo. Would happily spend £100 million on him if we still have the budget from last year.

{Ed002's Note - No but there is interest from elsewhere. I don’t know of any “budget” from last year.}

Agree1 Disagree7

23 May 2024 10:50:45
Ed002 have you heard anything about Liverpool interest in Kokcu? Or is it just a lazy link because he used to play for Slot?

{Ed002's Note - He has a €150M release clause.}

Agree0 Disagree10

23 May 2024 12:07:31
I’d have thought we have enough players who can play number 10?

23 May 2024 13:53:48
Cheers Ed002. Reports saying we want him for €45m are probably inaccurate then!

VV, I don’t really know much about him to be honest. Just saw the links, googled him, and saw he used to play for Slot. If he’s a 10 it makes very little sense when we have Macca, Szobo, Elliott and Carvalho on the books.

{Ed002's Note - Is that what is called a cheeky bid?}

23 May 2024 17:44:44
I’m pretty sure he threw a strop at Benfics as the coach tried to play him as a defensive midfielder (which was admittedly stupid as he’s clearly not one of those) he was gobbing off massively about it apparently. Would seem a very odd signing to me.

23 May 2024 18:08:41
I think that’s more than cheeky Ed002 ? maybe “outrageous”!

24 May 2024 00:12:47
Don't ask don't get, that's what we say in Liverpool.

24 May 2024 09:02:19
My Nan used to say ‘stop asking silly questions’.
