      It's nothing to do with them being amateurs and all to do with the club giving the local press the story, before the likes of Sky, that's all it is really.

      Wow, I'm very surprised at this one! Seems mad for Leipzig to have rejected our larger offers and take a £30m hit just so he can play another year there.

      Think this is a real coup, and credit has to be given to the negotiators and Klopp.

      Wow, we really don't seem to be messing about now, do we?

      Echo reporting that these bids for Lemar and the signing of Keita have nothing to do with Coutinho. I do still wonder, though.

      My only concern is could Keita be a replacement for Can, if he doesnt sign the contract? I want Can to stay.

      My only reservation Res. Can't help feeling Lemar is contingent on Phil going, despite what the reports say.

      And as much as I think the Keita deal is brilliant and am excited about the prospect of Lemar, I'd really like to see some movement from us for a CB.

      Yup, good sh*t too.

      Once the offal announce, he'll get a player thread as per.

      Mmm, that's it isn't it. There's always that sinking feeling that Couts is out. I don't want him to go, but I also don't feel that we would lose out on a hell of a lot (quality wise) by allowing him to leave now. Especially with the form we're in.

      We do need a CB, and I feel we're going to go in hard for VVD in the last couple days. Whether Southampton will fold or not, I don't know. I hope.

      Waiting for something to come out about Coutinho I expect so they put their spin on the Keita deal.

      This gives Coutinho staying for another 12 months some legs, the Keita deal won't happen for about the same length of time, good juggling right there.

      Lemar if signed and Keita must be seen as pre-emptive measures to replace Coutinho, as stated the signs are that the player has agreed to stay another 12 months until such time as signings are in place.

      A CB in place would be sorting the last chink in our armour, the way things have seemingly gone into overdrive it could certainly happen.

      F***ing brilliant if that is true! Hahaha! Only just got home to this news, great stuff.

      Hope he works out better than Djibril Cisse!

      And Divock Origi!

      Don't see how Keita, Origi or Cisse transfers are related in any way.

      Would it be worth paying extra now, but the deal includes a loan back for the season. We say to RBL, look you get the player for the year and at the end of that you get more than you will for him next season when he has a release clause that activates.

      They get the best of both worlds, the higher fee and the extra year of Keita. We end up getting the player we want a little bit later and aren't swooped by Bayern next year.

      I'm not sure if it's the best idea... But there might be something to it.

      This reminds me when I was a kid and mi parents bought me the Christmas presents, I could see the presents but couldn't open them until the 25th...

      Actually is a really smart piece of business to secure him, because more clubs will be after him with CL football, it would have been nice to have him this year though.

      Anyway, well done. Liked that it was all done behind the curtains, nobody had a clue until today.

      RBL have got too much money if they can turn down 70m to sell him to us now to accept 48m in July, they're basically paying an extra 22m to keep him for 11 months.

      He really must be one hell of a player.

      Regardless what the premium was, this is a great deal.

      Next years prices are going to be even steeper with premier league TV distribution rights being negotiated in Dec.

      we are supposedly paying a premium which I'd have thought would be in the region of £60M so RBL maybe losing £10M? Would you accept £120M for Cou next summer rather than sell for £130M now?

      Ha ha... yes... and yet you have people marking this down as 'genius move', 'new' and innovative. 😛

      Might have been nice to see him play alongside Coutinho but deal done, Keita excitement over til next year: who's next?
