      Possible Departures: Mignolet, Moreno, Lallana, Sturridge, Origi

      That is not to mention the amount of players that could also go off the books that aren't currently at the club or that are knocking about in the reserves. Karius, Bogdan, Clyne, Randall, Masterson, Ejaria, etc.

      I have a feeling Grujic is a good player but should probably be sold with a buy back option. We should also look at loaning out Ben Woodburn.

      Players like Brewster, Cammacho and hopefully Harry Wilson can add depth to the first team.

      We then need a back up goalkeeper, left back (Lewis has potential but too dangerous to rely on him), a creative midfielder and a striker.

      Squad would then look like this:

      Alisson
      Alex-Arnold Gomez VanDijk Robertson
      Fabinho Wijnaldum Oxlade
      Salah Firmino Mane

      GK
      Cammacho Lovren Matip LB
      Henderson Keita AM
      Shaqiri ST H.Wilson

      Not sure Origi will go, and Lallana is more about his fitness than his ability.

      We' see though.
      Klopp is keeping his cards close, which is exactly how it should be.

      Anyone else think Depay would be worth looking into? Seems like him and Wijnaldum have formed a strong relationship on and off the pitch. I think he has been playing well for Lyon as well as his national team, and at 25, he is heading into his peak years.

      Pearce poured a lot of cold water on any transfer rumors yesterday. Basically saying we aren't going to be looking to bring in any players other than to replace. The squad Klopp has now is the one he wants to move forward with.

      Take it for what it's worth, I think that's still his opinion and while he's a noted "insider", I don't know that he really knows the entire truth about our transfer plans.

      If we aren't looking to bring in another attacker then its just batshit crazy to be honest, I'd be amazed if we don't

      Isn't that just a re-hash of Klopp's interview a week or 2 ago?

      A lot of people here just think he's keeping his cards close, but of course he might mean exactly what he says.

      We'll know soon enough.

      As much as it's fun to think about big name players coming here, I'm not sure that's what Klopp is really concerned with. I think he likes the team he has and doesn't feel the need to try and integrate more big egos. I mean it's taken Keita all season and he's still not come up to speed, Fab took about half the season. We have Ox coming back. Yes we could use some depth here and there but I personally doubt that Klopp feels the need to go and get a Dybala or a Werner, although I wouldn't be against it. I can see him going after some up and comers, young talent he can develop and convince to stay here for a long time.

      Has been in and out of the lyon team recently,  undoubtedly talented but looks like the old doubts about consistency and attitude have reared their head again

      Pearce also said we wouldn’t be signing Alisson.
      Pearce had no idea about Fabinho signing.
      He got called out by Klopp for twisting his words for an article that made it sound like Klopp was fed up at the club. He also said regarding Flanno and his assault case, that we would have had a different view of it had it been Salah.

      I pay little attention to what Pearce, Dominic King and whoever else has to say because they are just blagging it and hoping for the best, like us, they don’t know sh*t. Just all about them clicks and then Pearce gets arsey when the clown Oliver Bond starts to pass off what’s been said as his own.

      Click click click is all they are about, quite funny how they all think they are ITK and kept in the loop.

      I would 100% be buying another Striker. Has to be our #1 priority.

      Firmino is not a Striker, and Sturridge is hated by Klopp. Would be mad to continue this situation for another year.

      Origi is never going to lead the line, so sell Sturridge and buy a replacement.

      Sturridge is not "hated by Klopp".

      He just isn't good enough for us anymore simple as that.

      Firmino isn’t just a striker, he’s one of the best in the world.

      Fella, can you for once, put down your Big Book Of Football Cliches, and try to understand that we don't play with a single striker who "leads the line".
      It's the main reason Sturridge doesn't get more game time, that and he's seemingly made of glass.
      He has fabulous natural ability, but unless a team is set up around him (like Kane has) then he'll struggle.
      We have 3 players who are attackers, and who interchange.

      Salah and even Mane have played as the 9, haven't they? And even Firmino this season and last, and whilst I agree Firmino is not a natural striker, he has shown he is capable of playing that role, but the problem is, he doesn't have that strikers instinct that you see from natural 9's. I would be in favour for a new 9, an alternative and someone to challenge Firmino.

      The problem is that we play with 3 forwards and we only have 3 quality forwards, this means that they have to play even if in poor form, Salah/Bobby, and if they get injured we need to shuffle the formation or rely on Origi and/or Sturridge.

      WE NEED ONE MORE QUALITY STRIKER, top top priority this summer.

      Sturridge wouldn't shine even if we did anyway any more. Injuries killed off what would have been an incredible career with us. He's finished at the highest level and if we have to sell him for next to nothing it would at least free up wages as I'm guessing he's earning in line with some of our top end talent who play every week.

      Hes the one to make way, I was surprised it wasn't last season but he's fit and behind Origi now which surely must mean his time is up.

      I think Klopp wants a younger back up to the first choice front 3. The Soalnke signing was good business off the field but didn't help us on it and now questions over Brewsters fitness may see us enter the market for that type again.

      Not just his fitness, he's a complete unknown quantity at first team level. Looking good in training is one thing, put him into action in the Premier League and it could be a completely different story.

      Don't get me wrong, I'm not writing him off, just more highlighting that not every player who is good at lower levels turns out to be a Rashford or a Sterling.

      Pre-season will be massive for the lad. Confidence certainly doesn't seem an issue with him and looking forward to seeing what he can bring to the team, hopefully he will go on to be in the same bracket as the Rashford and Sterling quality.

      So apparently Fekir’s agent donated money to Edwards’ fund raising page. Obviously means absolutely nothing and absolutely doesn’t for a second suggest we will sign him but I am absolutely going to assume it does and get my hopes up that we will still sign him this summer.
