      When Neil Jones says Origi/Wilson would be given a chance in the pre-season, does that mean we've put the chase for a "versatile forward" on hold? Hopefully, its about squad depth, we should be after the likes of Pulisic or Bailey!

      Quick YouTube and he must be the only player on those best clips where you are left thinking why!

      I would much prefer Wilson than this guy, must a cheap punt to see if we can bolster his value to sell on for profit in a couple of years.

      Not good enough and very inconsistent. Rather give Ojo, Wilson, Kent a chance

      Decent. Good control, two-footed, pacey and can shoot a ball.*

      Hey Dan, I'd agree with you. Not sure why some others here are so down on the guy. Personally, I could see him as being a really solid rotational option for Mane in lesser PL games. Perhaps doesn't have the power that Mane can provide at times, but definitely has the pace and trickery to contribute for us, plus seems to provide some good, thoughtful crosses, that I'm sure Firmino would appreciate. Hands down prefer him being moulded into the Klopp way than bringing in Shaqiri.

      Why not both it's not like we haven't got money could get the pair for much less than Mancs are willing to pay for a very average left back in Danny Rose.

      Personally, I'd hate to hear we didn't get a top keeper because we weren't prepared to spend an extra 15 mil on him, but we got Shaqiri for that much who will never suit our system for 60+ min (which rules him out as a starter, even a rotational one). Sure, he could potentially play a handy role off the bench in certain games, but we shouldn't spend that much on that instead of a younger, faster, and fitter option who could be developed to replace Mane when he'll no doubt be lured away in the next season or two. Shaqiri is also not a player who'd enjoy playing the minor part we could offer him. He actually suits a struggling side that needs an outlet to not only hold the ball up with his strength and positioning, but has the trickery to then take a man on or play the right pass to keep possession or even counter properly. Anything higher than, say, Leicester wouldn't suit him and probably vice-versa.

      We need some extra strength though as proven towards the end of last season when the injuries started to kick in within the squad. Plus I've always been impressed with Shaqiri's dead ball situations when he has played at Anfield for Stoke.

      Hey fair enough. He's very much a luxury pick to me, and I'd rather see us use those on young energetic players, like Simon, who've had good seasons in leagues such as Belgium, Holland, and Portugal, and have the potential to be developed into world class Klopp players like Firmino (and I reckon Fabinho will be). I guess we'll have to wait and see on this one after the WC though.

      All I'm saying is give the "Magic Dwarf" a chance I think he could do a job for us, also he shoots well from outside the box something we've been lacking since Stevie G left.  ;)

      Why not neither and we go buy quality?

      Haha please define quality though? Because, respectfully, how does one watch the following video and not appreciate the quality of Moses Simon? He is super quick. He runs effectively with the ball at defenders. He times his runs to receive a ball well. He picks out intelligent passes and crosses to teammates. For a small guy he doesn't get bumped off shielding a ball as one would expect (or try to milk fouls that aren't there). He's energetic. He's not all flash and no substance, so I reckon it wouldn't take him long to wow the crowds at Anfield.

      We need a guy to start maybe half a dozen premier league games and then come off the bench 20 odd times. I'd much rather sign this dude for 10-15 mil and have him happily firing in a system and squad role that would suit him, than pay 60-90 mil for potentially available "quality"players like a Martial (or whomever else that we can only get because they're moaning about not getting enough playing time at their current big club) who wouldn't necessarily work hard enough in our system or enjoy sitting behind Salah + Firmino + Mane most of the time. We want a competitive but happy dressing room, not the kind of crap like Man U and Chelsea.

      The only genuine gaps we have in our starting line up for the kinds of quality players I can only assume you're referring to are at GK, CB, and I guess a suitable #10. Outside of those positions we shouldn't be splurging cash. That's why players such as Moses Simon, Steven Bergwijn, and David Neres would be good options to back up our front line at reasonable cost. Of course, if by quality you were referring to players more like Malcom and Leon Bailey, then that's fine as long as we're not paying more than 45 mil for them.

      As for #10, Fekir was ideal, but obviously there may be medical cloud. Other than him, we'd be grossly overpaying for overrated quality. Unless we can get De Bruyne or Hazard, we're better off grooming a player or two into that role. I reckon Klopp could work with aforementioned Malcom or Bailey, or bring in someone like Amine Harit or even Yusuf Yazici, and turn them into what we specifically need in that role. Just look at the kind of player Ox is developing into. We don't need stars, we need players who do a job and don't have the jitters. That's why I'd keep Firmino over any star striker in the world. That's why we need better options than Karius and Lovren. That's why we brought in the likes of Keita and Fabinho to upgrade our midfield.

      If we're going to start competing with the big clubs we need to start being a destination for developing talent too, where we're the one's picking up quality prospects for under 20 mil and then offloading the excess later on for 50+ mil. We mustn't be the club that skips on buying all those players at decent fees only to buy them a year or two later for excessive ones. Once we reestablish ourselves as a top two side in the PL and CL semi finalist, then we'll be in a position to attract the kinds of quality players that have truly earned the excessive fees.

      In my opinion, of course haha

      Although word of this potential move has gone really quiet these last few weeks, it makes sense that it wouldn't happen until he has recovered from his injury in order to have a proper medical. Also, it would make sense that Gent would be reluctant to let him go until they had a better idea of what player(s) could replace him.

      But heaps keen for us to sign him, so hoping to hear more about this soon!

      The biggest reason I am not fond of the Shaqiri signing is because it appears to be at the expense of signing Simon. Hopefully, that is not the case, and we still bring Simon in.
