Fabio Carvalho eds, any chance?

{Ed002's Note - Fabio Carvalho (AM) will be a Free Agent in the summer and has his agents talking to the likes of Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid - all of which would be a big step up from Fulham, but all of which have a declared interest. Other clubs such as Liverpool and Wolves have sent scouts to watch him but it has gone no further and Fulham would be very reluctant to deal with Liverpool. The German and Spanish sides are free to negotiate a transfer as a Free Agent for the summer already. The English sides cannot do that until May. Fulham could opt to try to sell this month to ensure that they do not lose out financially. Chelsea would have a significant advantage if he were to be sold in January.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Jan 2022 17:08:24
We in their bad books from Elliott deal or had blood from Clint Dempsey.

20 Jan 2022 20:46:50
Well if he doesn't leave this month, come the summer it doesn't really matter whether they want to deal with us r not.

20 Jan 2022 21:54:56
If he is a free agent in the summer, surely it won’t affect/ impact our poor relationship with Fulham?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool would then need to wait until May.}

20 Jan 2022 23:15:14
Ed, this could come across as a bit narky but that’s not my intention, promise!

Is our relationship so bad with Fulham that they wouldn’t take our money now over nothing in summer?

It’s not this potential transfer that has me asking per se, it’s more a fascination with the side of football we rarely get an insight in to. Doesn’t matter how clued up we think we are, the machinations behind the public facade are a mystery to the vast majority of us.

{Ed002's Note - Other sides would be interested if he were available now. They would still like a new contract.}

21 Jan 2022 09:32:51
Liverpool to buy him and loan him back to Fulham to push for promotion, sounds like a win win situation to me.

21 Jan 2022 10:42:02
The Dortmund model + some big spends when necessary . Im happy with that model, it is worth more than being just another state owned FC. It also depends on having a generational talent like Klopp at the helm to some extent.
Hope FSG can prove me wrong there.

20 Jan 2022 09:33:06
Barca director, Alemany, just announced that Dembele will be leaving the club before Jan 31st as it's been made clear he will not be staying.

Ed002, I know you've previously stated that Klopp has the klipperties for the player but with him now becoming available in the market (although I really hope not) could you see Liverpool potentially trying to get a deal completed before the window ends?

{Ed002's Note - Ousmane Dembele (RW/LW/F) Klopp's interest does not seem to go away but the attraction will be that he is a Free Agent in the summer although his preference is likely to be elsewhere unless Salah or Mane were to leave. Barcelona have tried again with a new contract with no luck and a January sale could be difficult but his agent is offering him around - but looking for a very large signing on package. Barcelona may spring a surprise in January and look to see if something could be done with potential targets at Juventus or Milan to reduce the price although Juve may look to an agreement to take him as a Free Agent in the summer. Financially, it is in the best interests of the player to stay until the summer. They may also look to an exchange with Chelsea for Rudiger but the Chelsea interest is elsewhere rather than Dembele and can probably be discounted. With Sancho having arrived it is hard to see interest from Manchester United although they have been approached and they will need a Martial replacement at some point. Arsenal would need to offload Pepe to make space and remain an unattractive option - it would be madness to consider adding Dembele. PSG are seeking a French player still but have a preferred option as a Mbappe replacement. Injury concerns, inconsistent form and high wages must be considered by any potential buyers.

Agree0 Disagree0

Non exhaustive list of better value for money players than Ousmane Dembele:

Bozo Texino
Snoogy Doogie
Ken Aguero
Navy Keith
Former Leeds United and Scotland frontman Arthur Graham
Even Adama Traore

Dembele has AVOID AT ALL COSTS written all over him in big neon letters, there’s definitely no bargain to be had as he’s in such poor physical condition and he never will be, he’s as congenitally broken as a Lancia Beta. And a complete retromingent gilfnard of epic proportions.

His career will fizzle out in the next two/ three years and he’ll be struggling to get games at a mid table Turkish club. Odds on. Hard pass.

20 Jan 2022 12:41:17
You seem to be on the fence about Dembele, VVVV. Tell us how you really feel.

Jokes aside, you're right. Idk why we still seem to be interested, but everything about this bloke screams Balotelli all over again. Except probably more costly given his likely wage demands.

20 Jan 2022 12:54:12
Wondered how long it would be before VVVV commented how much he dislikes Ousmane. ;)

20 Jan 2022 12:36:51
So you're not a fan VVV? 😅.

20 Jan 2022 13:34:57
Someone better tell the big German lad.

20 Jan 2022 14:06:10
Scary how good he was coming from France to Dortmund. He was Mbappe level of potential but then injuries got the better of him. Nobody knew what footed he was as a youngster.

20 Jan 2022 13:17:38
Thing is, we don’t have a lot of money and we can’t make mistakes in the transfer market. Sign him on a long term deal on huge wages and we’re lumbered with him if and when it inevitably goes wrong as no one in their right mind would take him off our hands on the salary he’d be on. Besides which, it’s well documented by some very reliable sources that he’s for far more than what Salah is alleged to have asked us for, how happy do you think Salah would be if Dembele walked in (well hobbled, on crutches), on a salary of over £500’000 a week when the club had tyre kicked around his negotiations? Let him be someone else’s mistake.

20 Jan 2022 15:01:42
I don’t always agree with VVVV but he’s got this one spot on I reckon.

20 Jan 2022 15:13:29
On paper, he's said to be among the elite footballers of the world but in reality he's just a nightmare. Clearly the boy has talent but looking at how he disrespected Dortmund to force his way to Barca, and now he's trying to milk Barcelona after being injured so frequently, I just don't see why clubs even bother anymore. His attitude is poor and his wage demands are high plus his injury records are horrendous. That's a recipe for disaster, so it is a clear NO if you ask me.

20 Jan 2022 15:40:22
Just can't see the club taking such risks considering the way they operate and that its the last 2.5 years of JK, and if there is any chance of him coming back after a year off, the team needs to be rocking its 2.0 version.
Smoke and mirrors IMO.
Diaz is another matter. Can see this one coming straight out the bag and catching everyone out.

20 Jan 2022 18:36:05
If the money is right I can see both signing. I know he’s not what everyone wants but I think Klopp will push for him given he is free. Diaz I think will arrive in the summer.

21 Jan 2022 09:34:01
Made me laugh when I read Newcastle was considering Super Mario.

21 Jan 2022 10:56:12
Dembele has clearly got talent and it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that he establishes himself as one of the best players around. That said his injury record and seeming bad attitude would put me off plus he seems to want (and probably will get being a free transfer/ contract running down) massive money so it would seem one to swerve.

21 Jan 2022 22:29:41
Worth a year contract to say thanks for missing the sitter at the end of the 1st Leg CL semi in 18/ 19. Thanks lad.

{Ed0666's Note - let’s give out a pay as you play deal to Eider Gudjonsen then 😂

18 Jan 2022 23:08:29
Eds, if you have the time can you provide a quick update on the likelihood of departures during the current window, please?

The press have made intermittent mention of Nat Phillips, Neco Williams and Big Div but it all seems a bit like rumours rather than anything concrete.

{Ed002's Note - It will be no different to that I previously explained.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2022 08:32:04
You'd like to think poor Nat can get himself a move!

19 Jan 2022 01:30:46
Thanks for the response Ed - seems apart from Aston Villa and perhaps Newcastle there’s not a lot of activity.

19 Jan 2022 08:54:25
Burnley are going to need him for division 1, when 1/ 2 of their CB's leave.
With the toon buying Carlos, they are out, and no new word on West Ham .
Ed's say he's overpriced, but what else can be bought for 12/ 15m?

19 Jan 2022 09:33:46
Best option would be to loan for rest of season and then look to sell him in the summer.

19 Jan 2022 23:02:13
Isnt Nat still out injured with a broken cheekbone? In which case that could effect the likelihood of him leaving.

20 Jan 2022 04:26:58
Back in training according to Lijnders.

20 Jan 2022 12:18:08
I think Newcastle will come in at the end of the window and make a bid close to what we’re asking as all their other attempts are falling on their arse.

20 Jan 2022 14:07:08
Can’t you just put a Zoro mask on for a broken cheekbone and carry on playing?

18 Jan 2022 16:57:02
Ed, you mentioned Firmino being the most likely to be the first of the ‘front three’ to be phased out.

Who do you think would be a good replacement?

And who do you think the replacement might be? You’ve put together an extensive list of wingers who we’ve expressed interest in but very few are the versatile forward like Firmino.

{Ed002's Note - arias would be a potential replacement.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2022 18:26:04
Yes, he gets into some very dangerous arias.

18 Jan 2022 18:59:21
Arias? Only Arias I know of is the right back?

Someone fill me in!

18 Jan 2022 17:09:42
Did you mean Dias Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Yes Luis Diaz.}

18 Jan 2022 17:18:48
Did you mean Diaz, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes - a phone issue.}

18 Jan 2022 20:09:26
It’s all good Ed.

18 Jan 2022 20:14:38
Do you
See LFC signing Diaz Ed 2 or is he priced out of reach?

{Ed002's Note - If the club are able to raise the money or strike a deal over a plan, then maybe.}

18 Jan 2022 20:23:18
Would that be Jota to take the central role permanently and Mane and Diaz rotate on the left wing? Or would Diaz also play through the middle?

{Ed002's Note - Diaz would be the catalyst to moving Firmino on. The players are versatile.}

18 Jan 2022 20:38:04
Has any of Ed's seen much of Diaz? I've only seen him twice in the 2 champ league games against us and he didn't stand out I thought.

{Ed002's Note - He is liked by many as a decent player.}

18 jan 2022 21:11:13
at the start of the transfer window the eds were saying that diaz will not be moving to liverpool, are we saying it has a chance now?

id love this one to have legs.

{Ed002's Note - Only if Liverpool can borrow the money from somewhere to offer the required €80M and the player is interested in the move. If you don’t like what has been said, we can easily remove your account.}

18 Jan 2022 23:19:28
Ed I no you don’t like timing questions but I’m presuming if we were to make a move it would be summer window and zero chance it happens in next 11days?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer questions without knowing more.}

19 Jan 2022 12:10:51
Hi Ed002

With Luiz Diaz being owned by Porto and Junior, would it be a difficult deal to get done this window?


{Ed002's Note - It is unrelated to any of the potential buying clubs. The €80M buy out clause covers the additional monies owed by Porto to have 100% ownership.}

19 Jan 2022 13:32:42
So it's just a simple case of paying the set price and of course, the player wanting the move.

Thanks ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Subject to a couple of other matters, yes.}

19 Jan 2022 13:35:42
One more thing on Diaz is I may Ed002,

Have Liverpool made any type of contact with the players reps or Porto direct, with regards to starting the ball rolling on getting a deal done?


{Ed002's Note - There is not going to be an attempt to sign him immediately.}

19 Jan 2022 13:59:01
Thank you kindly for your replies .

19 Jan 2022 18:35:44
I think maybe a desk for the summer if anything Bergersleeg. Nit sure if it’s possible to strike a deal now fir the summer or not, I guess we wait and see mate.

20 Jan 2022 12:19:32
I only have one question Ed002, would you consider Diaz to be nifty?

{Ed002's Note - Some do.}

20 Jan 2022 13:03:51
There is strong reports that Liverpool may do a deal for 19 year old Fabio Carvalho of Fulham in January, could be a long term potential replacement for Bobby?

18 Jan 2022 14:02:08
Seen reports today that we would sell Firmino for 20 million euros in the summer and that he’s been offered to Barcelona. Any truth in this? And if so, what would be the angle? It seems a strange move to me.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any proposal being made to Barcelona.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2022 15:25:21
do you think we would prioritize selling rather than getting him tied down to a new contract?

18 Jan 2022 15:20:42
Whilst there may not have been a proposal, is there interest from Barcelona (or anyone) in firmino?

{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware but I expect as some point he will be the first of the "front three" eased out and replaced as I have expalined.}

18 Jan 2022 17:00:15
We had a big contract renewal phase not that long ago. I think if Mane and Bobby were getting new contracts, it probably would have happened during that round of renewals.

18 Jan 2022 17:56:25
Surely it must be about their wishes to make one last big move, which makes sense cause Mane prefers the right and Bobby needs a slower league.

17 Jan 2022 22:51:38
Hey Eds and Reds! Any chance Jonathan David could be one we're interested in this summer? As a Canadian I'd love to see it!

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing to suggest it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jan 2022 07:29:11
Excellent player. Can’t see it happening myself.

18 Jan 2022 07:29:11
Excellent player. Can’t see it happening myself.

18 Jan 2022 07:29:11
Excellent player. Can’t see it happening myself.

18 Jan 2022 07:58:30
I wonder if Transition_Time can see it happening.

18 Jan 2022 07:35:34
You must feel strongly about not seeing it yourself mate, 3 times you mention it 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

18 Jan 2022 08:02:40
I’m not sure he can?

18 Jan 2022 09:14:56
I believe him!

18 Jan 2022 13:37:53
Excellent player. Can’t see it happening myself.

18 Jan 2022 13:40:09
Excellent player. Can’t see it happening myself.

18 Jan 2022 17:49:45
Is he any good? Can you see it happening?

18 Jan 2022 18:23:14
Can't see it happening myself, excellent player though.

17 Jan 2022 21:08:44
Good Evening Eds. I see Sky Sports are still reporting that Aston Villa are still keen to sign Bissouma this Window. If they were to make an offer this Window, do you think Liverpool would enter the race due to fear of losing him? Many Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool will not be forced in to making offers for players as a result of what other clubs do.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2022 15:10:54
Renato Sanches deal seems to be happening according to reports in Portugal and Spain. You know if they're wide of the mark Ed002? I know you said he was of interest last summer.

{Ed002's Note - I gave you an update a few weeks ago and explained:
Renato Sanches (CM) Lille are happy to let the player move on due to the constant muscle injuries he suffers; they wanted €20M cash or €30M with payments spread out although that could increase if Jorge Mendes can find multiple bidders or if there is no sale in January. Klopp has praised him in the past and he would be a more affordable replacement for Wijnaldum, but interest is not yet firm again but Liverpool could look to reducing the fee or even perhaps offering Origi in exchange - but Lille need cash. Barcelona had a sustained interest but they may have moved on. I had thought prior interest of Wolves would likely have left with NES but they could take a chance on him joining on a loan to buy deal after his recent injury - they may even be in a position to look for a cheaper straight cash deal in January. Arsenal would need to make space due to their imbalance between DM and CM. Milan may provide an option but would rather save money and utilise loanees Tommaso Pobega and Yacine Adli to cover for the departing Kessie. The concern would be injury issues and, although talented, he is inconsistent. Maybe something can be done.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jan 2022 15:36:08
Talented but inconsistent and with constant muscle injuries, wonder where we've heard that before? 🤔🤔.

17 Jan 2022 16:20:11
So we’ve got a lot of midfielders who like a fair bit of time off because of injury, so what is the logical thing to do? Bring in literally the most injury prone midfielder in European football?! I’m calling BS on this, It’s his agent drumming up interest. It would be batsh*t crazy to sign a player with as many chronic injury issues as Sanches, notwithstanding the fact he’s really not that good either.

17 Jan 2022 16:54:48
My issue is more than I think a forward player is the priority and I can't see us buying 2 players in Jan.

Although we've had injuries in Midfield, we'll have a lot of options in the next few weeks.

17 Jan 2022 17:52:52
We've two games to play till Sadio and Mo are back, and even if both get to the final on the 6th we should be able to beat Cardiff without them. Even in midfield, without sales who are we going to get in who would be a huge improvement on fab, hendo nd thiago! elliott also is on the way back.

17 Jan 2022 18:06:01
Presumably Sanches would long to mediumm term replace Keita or Ox if he arrived, both of whom have had injury problems (and the former an effort problem) . Not really sure of the point in replacing one injury prone player with another.

Honestly I'd rather take a punt on Jason Knight for half the money. He at least has a good fitness record, excluding that one time his own manager joined training and deleted his ankle.

17 Jan 2022 18:15:36
Vvvv I was planning on watching a Pilger documentary later, but I’m guessing you can tell me otherwise. We all know Sanches makes little sense given his injury record etc. But he has undeniable talent.

17 Jan 2022 18:43:33
Since the Ox just got crocked yet again we must be signing Sanches to compete with him for time out injured.

17 Jan 2022 19:12:03
The cheapest option amongst all.

17 Jan 2022 19:58:19
I'd rather go for sarr from Watford. Build for the future now.

17 Jan 2022 20:43:14
Have you any injuries son?
Eh yeah I do!
Lovely just sign here welcome to LFC!

17 Jan 2022 23:48:17
What sort of response do you expect from the “fans” son?
The usual one.
Lovely, spot on son, YNWA.

18 Jan 2022 09:45:51
talented, inconsistent, injury issues.

sounds like a Liverpool midfielder to me

on a serious note I've watched 2 or 3 Lille games and there are flashes of the skill and playing style that would suit our midfield. No call on whether he would be or not, but just saying that he has qualities that are understandable as to why Klopp likes him.

18 Jan 2022 09:48:21
Sanches is not a very good choice in my opinion due to his injury record. However i do believe a midfielder is the right investment over signing a forward. We currently have Mane, Salah, Firmino, Jota, Minamino, Origi and now Gordon for 3 positions. None of them are particularly injury prone.

In midfield we have Henderson, Keita, Ox Thiago and even Milner now who struggle for fitness. We also have Elliott just returning from injury so can't rush him. In fact, Jones and Fabinho are the only reliable players. They have both had a freak injury in the last 2 season but neither were out for much more than 5 weeks.

But that's why i don't think Sanches is right. We need a reliable midfielder who can play regularly. Rice or Bellingham are who we should be targeting but almost certainly are beyond our financial capacity. Hence (in my opinion) bargain basement targets like Ousmane Dembele, Adama Traore and Renato Sanches.

18 Jan 2022 11:37:06
Sanches is nowhere near an undeniable talent (that wonderful pass into the advertising hoarding always lives long in my memory), he’s bottled it in the top leagues and found his level in a farmers league. Thankfully it’s just nonsense as no one at the club would be that stupid to waste money on such an injury prone footballer.
