      If we get him, it'd be like having Alonso (Jorginho) and Gerrard (Keita) in midfield! And then you throw in Allison. F**k me, what a first eleven we will have.

      4 days after his agent says Jorginho could be sacrificed for potential incoming of Lucas Torreira or the development of Amadou Diawara, one of the most trusted journalists links us with him. Think this has got legs and the supposed interest from United who view him as a Carrick-replacement is definitely gonna ensure a bidding war! Napoli are also favorites to land Bernard from Shakhtar on a free..

      Joyce also says we want Alisson if the price is right and a Coutinho replacement. Hope we try bidding for Lazio's SMS (Sergej Milinkovic-Savic) after dropping interest in Lemar.

      Will be an all Serie-A raid!

      I'm kinda worried City may go after Jorginho. Fernandinho is kinda old, isn't he? Then you have injury prone Gundogan and Toure leaving in the summer...

      What you worried for? They wanted VVD as well. If a player chooses them over us fair enough but our finances should be such that if Klopp wants a player enough we should be able to compete with Citeh and it’s then up to the player. OK across a 20 man squad their wage bill will be a lot higher than us but on isolated cases we should be able to compete

      I think a holding mid and a center back are what we are after. If Karius continues his current form, don't think we will be buying a keeper. Maybe a forward on a free who is willing to play a role rather than expecting to be a first choice, but the holding mid, the center back and Keita should be the adds.

      Way to go...Piss off one of the most exciting young strikers on the planet (Mbappe) for a spoilt  prima donna with and ego the size of Brazil who wants to go to Real anyway by trying to trade him for a player who wants to play for Barca...

      Have to say, even though I'm American and I like Pulisic, I don't think he would be the best big-money buy for us. He's a good player and because he's so young, someone who excites re his potential, but I don't think, if we are talking one or two big money buys this summer to sort of finalize our title-winning team, he would be the best option. I can't help but feel that in part his value is a bit inflated because he's the first American to really make people think he might be a top-level player - face of American "soccer" and all that.

      Our transfer policy should in no  way be related to some kind of marketing angle, other than that winning titles is good marketing.

      Not saying he's a bad player, but I don't think he should be our highest priority.

      If Klopp sees him as important then it doesn’t matter what nationality he is. He’s an important part of that Dortmund team and I can only imagine how he would develop under Klopp. That said, I feel like he will  be up at United.

      I agree that Klopp wouldn't buy him based on nationality. Which also makes me wonder how credible the talk is linking us with him for a big money move.

      He's done better and earlier than any American professional in a major European league. But that doesn't mean he should be one of the 2-3 players we spend the Coutinho money on as the final pieces of the machine Klopp is building.

      Sure it is.

      I'm speaking of that first title we win under Klopp. I am of the opinion that we need a few more upgrades before it happens. And Klopp seems to prefer working season to season with a squad, so I'm referring to final adds for next season.

      I don’t think anyone is going to come in and replace our existing front three, anyway.

      Landing one of the brightest prospects sounds pretty good in that case.

      But
      I guess in the end, whatever Klopp decides is fine with me. Having a fourth top guy to go into that front three, in a season that involves upward to 60 matches, can't be a bad thing, I agree. But if we have enough for two major purchases, I'd go with holding mid and center back, personally.

      Holding mid is a priority for me, too. Probably need two more bodies in midfield that are upgrades on the current crop.

      Agreed. Having 3/4 of the midfield being Gini, Ox and Hendo isn’t good enough, simple as that. The midfield has to be as much of a priority as bolstering the keeper situation.

      I'd like a GK, another top CB and a CDM, anything on top of this will be a bonus. Now with at least £100 million burning a hole in the club's pockets we must surely be able to get those 3 players and the hopefully push on for the league in the next 2 years.

      We need at least 3 good transfers in the summer, a top GK, a defender and a top central midfielder.

      A top GK should be a priority in the summer: Alisson, Leno and Butland are very good options. Oblak would be the dream signing though.

      Another centre-back should be signed to provide competition for Matip: Tah, De Ligt, Jemerson, Gimenez. Jemerson and Tah are looking very good, any of them would start in our side.

      In midfield, in my opinion the best options for a CDM would be: Jorginho, Rabiot, Weigl, Ndidi. Weigl and Jorginho would fit the bill the best.

      Also Dani Ceballos might be a good option to have to challenge Georginio's place in the team.

      These 3 positions are key to improve if we want to mount a title challenge in the next season. Also, another striker to provide cover for Firmino would be great, Werner would be a fantastic signing but the transfer fee would be inflated and he should be a starter in any team, i can't see him fit in our system. Good players to provide cover would be: Luan, Dolberg, Moussa Dembele.

      Players to be offloaded: Mignolet, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno, Henderson, Lallana, Sturridge, Ings, Grujic, Markovic, Origi, Flanagan, Bogdan.
