      If the rumours are true then it's going to be interesting to see what approach we take. Do we pay a fee in January and get him in January, do we pay a fee and wait until the summer or do we just wait to sign him on a pre-contract agreement? I'd be a fan of either of the first two options as long as the figure doesn't become ridiculous. We have numbers in midfield so we're not desperate at the moment but obviously any injuries to the likes of Lallana and/or Henderson again could change that.

      I don't watch a lot of PSG or any French football really but I've seen little tidbits of him on the YouTubes. I didn't realise he was that tall for starters. He looks like a player that always wants the ball and loves to drive forward which suits us perfectly.

      If PSG are still in CL, I just can't see them willing to sell him to another CL club in January. Remember, regardless of whether a player played in group stages or not, they will be eligible to play for another CL club in the KO stages. I think PSG will only accept a stupid amount, and I think City are the only ones stupid enough to do that.

      I think that's one of the reasons why I don't think we'll push to sign him in January, it wouldn't make sense financially. It'll be a bit like the situation with Keita where we were linked with a move to sign him in January for like 20m. I forgot about that new CL eligibility rule, it was about time they changed that.

      I don't know that it will take a stupid amount. They can get a little bit out of him now or lose him for nothing in the summer. He's gone either way.

      Have they changed the rules then regarding CL, because I can't recall Coutinho playing for Barca in the CL?

      Yeah, they changed it for this season. I think it should only apply to players out of CL.

      So a player can play for one tean in the group stage, get transferred in Jan, then play for his new team in the knockouts?

      I read that but every article I have seen for it, it doesn’t give a single mention to where that is coming from, saying we aren’t interested.

      I’d be surprised if the club were going to let anything become public about it at this stage though, won’t want to risk getting done for tapping up the player, we technically wouldn’t be able to talk to him until January.

      In December / January he is free to talk to other clubs under bosman rules. We could, potentially sign him on a pre contract then. That is if all the press hype is to be believed?

      I also think you can technically sign a player before a final as well as the window opens before the CL ends.

      For example, if the rules applied last year, Salah could have left for Madrid just before we faced them.

      The concept our anthem inspires is completely lost on Mignolet and to imply otherwise would suggest the blame for the f**k ups while he acted as our last line of defence, should be allocated amongst his team mates.

      In that scenario and while wearing the LFC shirt he will certainly be walking unaccompanied.

      Did somebody watch him against City? Because I have a feeling he could end up like VVD, coming to us in the winter and Liverpool just waits to see if his knee holds further.

      I hope we go back in for Fekir, just take a little risk on him, because wow what a talent and then suddenly we'd have 4 top attackers rather than 3 with Sturridge, Shaquiri and Solanke as very capable back up. Honestly if we can get him in January then the league is ours, it may well be anyway but he would more or less guarantee it.

      The club are not going to spend £50mil plus on a player with a knee that can explode at any moment - the club were right to take a step back.
