      Despite our need for an AM and back-up for the wingers, striker, and full-backs I'd do this move in a heartbeat. Nothing is worth as much as having the best defense in the world.

      I would say there are only 3 positions we should actually improve on: CB, RB & AM. The other positions are more in need of cover or different options.

      I also don't think we will be paying big for a CB, perhaps not even going for one and sticking with Lovren and Matip. I think we have just been unlucky with the injures and I can't see it happening again.

      Don't think he'd be that much maybe 35-40 I think he would be worth it.

      Nah, still think the highlights in his hair make more of an impact than the highlights on the pitch

      Yeah I don’t think we are going to go for a CB, the only way we will is if either Lovren and/or Matip leave. Which at the moment, doesn’t look like a possibility.

      I like Lovren but i would like to move on from him as he simply misses too much time which puts us in tough positions to cover.

      Matip has really improved this season playing next to Virgil. Not sure when he's contract is up but I would definitely renew it for a couple more seasons and I expect Jürgen will want to.

      Defensively we only need to bring in cover for LB and RB positions when Clyne and Moreno leave.

      Would be pretty good move to make! Imagine having 3 CBs like Virgil, Gomez and De Ligt!

      I don’t get how Barca are deemed to have all this money, they’ve spent nearly 300mill on Coutinho and Dembele alone. Obviously Neymar covers a chunk of that but they’ve signed several new defenders, De Jong from Ajax, Malcolm, Vidal and a host of other players. There’s no way they can not be getting looked at for all this spending surely?! Especially if they go spend another 70mill or whatever on De Ligt

      Leroy Sane has still to sign a new contract with City...

      The Mail reports that Manchester City's lack of progress in talks over a new contract with winger Leroy Sane is partly down to the 23-year-old's mother, who is West Germany's 1984 Olympic gymnastics bronze medallist Regina Weber


      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6806005/Leroy-Sanes-MOTHER-obstructing-Man-City-contract-extension-talks.html

      I did suggest a few months back that Sane was not happy with Pep's treatment of him, people here will say that it is a negotiating tactic, and it may well be, but we should test the waters and put in a bid...

      But don't be surprised next season if Sane is not at City... I personally believe that he will be either Bayern, Real or Barca bound, with Bayern being favorite to sign him in my books

      If he leaves it would be to a club like Bayern although with Coman already do they need Sane. Coman was their biggest threat on Wednesday, he's a very good player, arguably even better than Sane.

      Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has ruled out a spending spree in the summer, adding that the focus will be on developing a team '100% at its best'.

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6815377/Jürgen-Klopp-says-Liverpool-dont-need-summer-spending-spree.html

      This is the second time that the Mail has printed this story, so it must have some traction to it

      The only good thing about it,for me is we don't know what Klopp means by spending big, or if someone became available whom we simple had to buy Klopp may break that promise... I think we will see movement in the transfer market, just not the type of money spent last season

      Well, Jürgen's hint at "not required to spend big" hopefully points towards free signings (Rabiot), last year of contract (Fekir/Werner), lower release clauses (Brandt), etc. ;D

      I think his point is we don’t have a need that requires us to break the bank as he is obviously very happy with the team he’s got. I’m sure he has some areas to address but I would hope no one thinks we need to go out and spend like City or United at this point in time. That’s not who we are or who we should want to be. At some point we need to learn (we are) to play the guys we have and coach them to be the best versions of themselves they can be.

      Does anyone actually expect him to say any different? If he came out and said we will be splashing the cash here, here and here then what’s that going to do to the morale of the squad players at the most vital time of the season?

      Anyone who actually believes what is being printed anywhere about what Klopp has or hasn’t said about our summer plans needs to give their head a wobble.

      Said we’d struggle to find better CBs than what we have...paid a record fee for Virgil.

      Not in need of a keeper, will be sticking with Karius, going with Danny Ward, the tea lady or whoever else...signed Alisson for a record fee at the time.

      The mail, the echo or NASA can post whatever they like about our apparent transfer plans 1, 2, 3, 4 or however many times, it means absolutely nothing.

      If there’s one thing Klopp won’t do it’s risk damaging the morale of any player, especially now. Christ he’s been backing Moreno all season whenever he’s been mentioned but he clearly has no future with us.

      I fully expect about 4 players to come in.
      We need a back up keeper as Mig looks like he off and at his age needs to be playing
      We have to get a back up right back as well
      Would be inclined to sign a proper attacking midfielder and we also need another striker.
      Looks like Mig, Moreno, Clyne and Studge are heading out the door and want to see some of the youngsters given more of a chance but we need to raise the level of quality options within the squad
      Believe Jürgen that he isn’t gonna spend a ton of cash but will look to make smart signings.

      Well, we are set to lose a good number of home-grown players.. Studge, Clyne, and may be Milner and Lallana too. So wouldnt surprise me if we went for, lets say, Ryan Sessognon (again, last year of contract) and Fraser Forster as back-up players who can chip in for the odd games. May be, may be, we move on Lovren and go in for one of Lascelles or Tarkowski? Whatever it is, I'm pretty sure Edwards and Jürgen have already done most of their leg work, cos Jürgen prefers getting players in at the start of pre season.

      That list would be outside the 3 most important positions we actually need this summer - #10, #8 and a versatile front-3 player!

      Understand your point 7KK7, but given the speed (slowness)in which LFC have tended to move in the transfer windows in the past I am not convinced things are already in place. That plus the fact that some players out there will be waiting to see where we finish in both the League and CL before making a decision...

      Bit of a misconception that we move slow. Anything but in recent windows. We had Van Dijk announced before the start of the winter window, we had Fabinho announced before the end of May. Keita was already tied up for the start of July, Alisson was in pretty early too. Shaqiri would have been sooner but for the World Cup and Fekir would have been before the World Cup. If there’s one thing that this club doesn’t do anymore, then it’s not move swiftly on our targets.
