      Ziyech would be an astute addition but if we were to stop with just Ziyech and Shaqiri, kinda feel it'll be slightly underwhelming!

      Aren't you forgetting Fabinho and Keita. In reality even if we don't sign any more players we have already significantly strengthened.

      Agree, our midfield is going to be a beast, but i'd still be unhappy with our depth up front going into next season if no one else was brought in.

      As much as i disliked the idea of Shaqiri at first, his talent is undeniable and if he was happy to come here as depth to the front 3 i think that'd be a good move for us. He'd also be playing with a heck of a lot better talent here than at Stoke which could help raise his game as well. I don't know too much about Zyiech but if brought in is because Klopp gave it his blessing, and in Jürgen i trust.

      Not saying it is likely, but I think it is possible (being done for the window).

      1. Forward: Starting to think Origi will be back in the squad and I do think that is an upgrade over Ings. He might give one of the younger players more opportunities as cover for the front 3 to go with Origi and Solanke. I wouldn't think Sturridge would be kept, but...

      2. Midfield: Jürgen may want to use Gini, Milner and Lallana to hold the place for Ox, hoping for a full recovery.

      3. Defense: I would like a new center back, but the defense was much improved and we do at least have plenty of bodies back there.

      4. Keeper: I don't think Migs will stay, but Karius will. Maybe Ward and Grabara are considered sufficient backups.

      Again, I would expect more incoming (and think we need it to contend), but it's not out of the question that we are done buying for the summer window.

      If we are done buying, it's a complete joke.

      We are trying to replicate what we did last year AND go further, which means we need way more talent. We weren't even close to City and they haven't weakened. We need to add 3 or 4 really good players this window just to make up some ground. We have the money, we have the pull, this is a vitally important time for our club if we want to not only progress but ensure that we stay at or near the top year in and year out.

      Let me remind you of what Werner said before the final:

      “I am excited to see Naby Keita join the club this summer and I can only promise our supporters that we will continue to improve the squad,” he said.

      “Whatever happens on Saturday night, we will ensure we have a strong squad to compete for trophies next season which will have even more depth.

      “We will make decisions that will improve the team and we will sign players who make us even more successful.”

      I think it's highly doubtful we are since we were going to sign Fekir before the medical report issues, so it's clear the team is looking to add to the current list of players.

      Not surprised they escaped sanctions but PSG have to raise ~60M by end of month to avoid any issues. Let's help them out by taking Draxler off their hands.

      No need to remind me.

      No way buddy! We definitely need a front-3 player this summer. Fabinho is solid and I couldnt be more happy. But who apart from Keita offers 'penetration'? The only player in the current squad who does that is out until December.

      So, we MUST do that combo!

      Fabinho can score and create a few too but yes we absolutely need an attacking midfielder and a pacy forward as backup for the front lads.

      They would be foolish to sell him. He can save them millions and can be an incredible back-up to the Neymar-Cavani-Mbappe front 3!!

      But this is PSG! They'll probably sell him for Hazard!

      Think his best days are behind him now, killed his career going to PSG.

      I’d steer clear of Draxler too, not really interested in players that have previously turned us down.

      What are people's thoughts on young French centre back Issa Diop from Toulouse? I vaguely remember us being "linked" with him last season but always thought it more likely he'd go to Barcelona, PSG, or Monaco before considering Liverpool. However, the latest news seem to indicate West Ham are close to a deal for him for 22 mil. West Ham?!

      The guy is 6'4" and, like our new signing, Fabinho, has a great tackling range too. He's aggressive (but not so error-prone as Lovren when doing so), and I've seem him expose gaps in front of him and charge up the field initiating counter-attacks. Again, West Ham?! Imagine him and Van Dijk as our centre back pairing for the next five years!

      I get the feeling we're not seriously considering getting in someone else to push Lovren, Matip, and Gomes for the other CB spot, and just going to rely on them and Klavan for depth. Anyone else worried about this?

      I would tempt them with a 50mil bid. He is more than what Maureen has made out of him. Can play anywhere across the front-3, something we are desperate for.

      So why not?

      Is there any truth to the rumors saying we're selling Grujic to Lazio?

      I don't understand, isn't this kid showing enough promise to at least keep him another year or two and let him try to steal a couple of starts from the current midfield roster? I also remember reading that he was to a certain extent in Klopp's plans for next season.

      Another thing I don't understand is the fee being mentioned. Something around €6M if I remember correctly. Can't we bargain for more or maybe a swap deal for somebody on their team? I understand he's basically unproven, but in this market players we've never heard of and half of a decent season under their belts are being thrown around for 20s and 30s and we're selling him at 6?

      Just keep the lad and try to develop him at this point. We're gonna be missing Ox for half the season anyway (late November or so).

      Type of deal where Lazio turns him into a Zelinski or Milinkovic Savic and next you know he's being sold at bargain fee of €57M in a couple of seasons.

      Not really. Lovren-Virgil would be the starting pair and we got Matip, Gomez and Klavan. 5 CBs should be good and but for the odd 'scares', Lovren was quite good in the second half of last season. Jürgen has huge trust in that bunch.

      Dont think we'll spend on a CB, cos our primary targets are a winger and #10!
