      Not sure how reliable this but I read an article on Flipboard that we are negotiating with Willian who is out of contract next summer. He's 31 but not a bad option from the bench.

      PL proven shooter from distance, great presser off the ball like Mane, bench player who is content with his role, work rate, etc. I've always rated him. This would be an AMAZING move.

      Proven shooter is completely different to a proven scorer. Unfortunately Willian is far from a proven goal scorer; his highest scoring league campaign is 8. He’s been in the league for 7 seasons now and his goal tally’s have been 4, 2, 5, 8, 6, 3 and 5. That’s shocking for such an attacking player who takes so many shots.

      He’s far from creative too, his assist numbers are just as underwhelming.

      I’d much rather keep Shaqiri than bring in Willian, who by the way, very happily rejected us in favour of Spurs before Chelsea swooped in for him.

      He’s one of the most over rated players in the league IMO. He will have a 2-3 game spell where he gets a goal and a couple of assists but then for the next 15 games he will get 0. In fact before his goal and assist in their last game he managed 2 goals in 19 games...them 2 goals came in the same game. He only managed 3 assists then too.

      Far better options out there than Willian, who will have turned 32 come next season.

      I'm well aware of him leading us on before signing with Chelsea. You are also correct in that there are better players out there. But those guys will need to be bought. Willan on the free is a good move for a number of reasons. He can help see a game out with his work rate and defensive pressure. He's a good spot kick taker. He's reliable. He is a creator and has proven so in all competitions. 5 goals and 5 assist. If you watch him play you realize he does more than the numbers show. A lot of what Willan does get missed since it comes off the ball

      I'm not saying he is Mo Salah or anything. But in a time where money will be hard to come by based on the unfortunate circumstances we're in, we may need to reaases our transfer strategy. I still wanna see us bolster our attack with Werner. To get a squad player like Willan for free is a nice find and makes us better

      Was it Spurs though? I thought he was one of the lads Brendan asked Stevie to text to bring him here and he said no due to living in London. He always turns it on against us but age and wages would be a no from me.

      Don’t know if he was one of the players that Gerrard was asked to try and convince to sign for us but Willian was definitely set for Spurs. Seemed as though he’s going to come to us but then he’s at Spurs for a medical and then Chelsea swooped. Was around the time Spurs seemed to go for everyone we were.

      Sanchez was the one that turned us down because he wanted London or his missus wanted London.

      Agree.

      Curtis Jones should be taking Lallana's place in the squad.

      He should do, though I’d like to think Jones would play a much more important role than Lallana has done.

      Absolutely not, since he scored the winner in the World Cup final he’s been bang average.  After a final and poor season at Bayern, going back to Dortmund was meant to bring the best out of him again but he’s been near on irrelevant. He could have signed for us before he went back to Dortmund, now we are far too good to be signing nothing more than a passenger. Lallana has been completely ineffective for the past however many years, if we are to sign Gotze then we may as well give Lallana a new contract because at least he runs.

      As a team, we are too good for Gotze and he certainly doesn’t have anywhere near the work rate required for us.

      Dembele available for around £35mil apparently... worth a shot that Klopp can sort him out at that price, maybe decent backup behind Mane/Salah... or nah?

      Think I’d rather just spend the extra and get Werner in for sure.

      Edit: Maybe a loan option to buy?

      I doubt that this amount is true but I guess Barca have admitted that their transfer decisions have been horrible for some time. It would be a good idea IMO, he is versatile, talented, quick and young.

      On the bench, to give a 20 mins runs. We need back-up.

      I’d be shocked if a player signed for about £120mill is available for 35mill with another 2 or 3 years on his contract.

      Missus wanted London.
      Thank f**k she did and we didn't have that problem around our neck as the Scum now have.

      Too many injuries Dembele  . Only played a handful of games.

      ........................ ......


      Another name doing he rounds is Adama Traore.
      Electric pace.
      Think he is the only striker to have out run Virgil.
