      Some articles saying he chose LFC cause he has a better chance of playing centre mid than if he'd gone to Chavs?! Never saw him as a CM, but maybe he's spent time there in the past, I dunno.
      Not sure I see him in the first XI with others fit, so 40mill is some money not to be an automatic starter. But let someone else worry about the spend, I just wanna see us strengthen, as long as he improves us, we absolutely need more depth to properly challenge in all comps.
      Haven't seen it from him yet in the PL on any consistent basis, but hopefully Klopp can get more gametime out of him than Wenger, who should really have gone end of last season.
      Assuming goes thro, hoping for good things.

      Unless it's fake, this move is now complete.

      I can't see it, unless we play 4-2-3-1 and he is the CAM with Mane and Salah as the wide attacking midfielder.  Personally think he's been brought in to rotate with Mane/Salah on the wings, but time will tell.

      What is going on here? :D

      I wake up and he's signed.

      Shown enough determination to want to be here and Klopp wants him. Good enough for me.

      I agree and taken a pay cut too? Never really rated him he's always been talked about as potential? Well if anyone can release potential in a player it's jurgen?

      Still not sure about the Ox, he just comes across as a Navas/Lennon type wide player with physicality, and for 35m :( We shall see I guess.

      Nope.. He's not. Navas/Lennon are like Valencia, all they can do is running through the straight path on the pitch, with no ability to use their left foot . Ox uses his both feet (though his left is still weaker, but not as weak as those 3 players above). His movement is more unpredictable, and damn! Maybe you won't believe this as it seems from your comment that you don't really watch him play at all. Bcos in some arsenal games last season, when this kid examined to fill the cm position, he can read the game well enough. He's got a lot of vision too, added by his typical skill of a winger, and his bravery to penetrate & bring the ball, i think that'd be awesome.. Even if coutinho leaves, (which i don't want to), ox can bring some depth and considered as a decent replacement for coutinho, though it's not in the sense of him bringing the same quality as coutinho has, but his versatility to be played in a lot of position in our 4-3-3 formations, that's already become a sort of advantage for us.
      I'd consider it as a decent move, not spectacular, and not bad either.

      Last season, he's filled that position (CM) a few times.. And he's good there. Remember lallana at soton? He was a winger there. But now, he is a competitor for our midfield post.

      ???

      If we have signed the OX I can't be the only who feels a bit meh after yesterday's heady excitement of the possibility of getting a much better sort after player in Lamar, I wonder what the OX is smoking if he believes he's getting a game for us in centre midfield utter madness. Don't see him pushing any of our first XI out but Lamar maybe would have and that's what we need top quality competition not just decent.

      Meh

      Remember how everyone have underestimated lallana's or mane's move? And now only a fool liverpool fan who won't like 'em both.

      If we buy him I hope he proves me wrong but as of now and taking to some friends who support Arsenal he isn't good enough and he isn't going to improve the starting eleven.

      I would take him as a backup but we need to spend money improving the first team, specifically the defence.

      This move is for the depth of the squad. Klopp wants some competitions over every position. That's why he brought karius too. Not to become an instant regular GK, but to get the best of simon, to enrich his options, to get 3 strong GK. Do u really think that if we could get lemar, he would be an instant main option for klopp? I really don't think so. Because it's for the competitions regard. More importantly, rotation. That there wouldn't be any significant declining of quality, when we bring some different players for some different matches.. That's what klopp's are intent for. To have a lot of lineups, that's pretty much bring the same quality to roam this long season ahead.

      So what you saying is when we signed Karius to push Migs it was actually like getting two GK's?  ;)

      Also turned down £220k a week to Chelsea. That is beyond commendable, that deserves massive respect and appreciation. In the day and age of greed ruling so many decisions, while of course £120k a week is hardly chump change, to take £100k a week pay cut to follow your dream and join our club impresses me massively.

      Career over pocket, dream over greed, well played fella.

       :gt-happyup:



      I will cut him some slack just for turning down the plastics and £100k a week extra for us. He is in my good books already.

      I also think that he would be a substitute for Mane/Salah (as these two can't go like this thru the season) once Klopp has coached Wenger out of him. He will play in the cups more and come on a sub in PL/CL.

      Look if Klopp can get the best out of Gini then he can do the same for Ox.

      With high intensity Klopp's tactics, many games, injures, rotation, I think he is a good option to have. He knows the language, experienced, Liverpool fan, rejected the blueshit plastic, a little less pay & he will give his everything.
