      Got to admit never heard of him.

      Probably more of a hurry up to Roma.

      But this guy has a release clause of £50 mill.

      So how can he be an alternative?????

      BREAKING: Liverpool in talks with Sporting Lisbon over transfer of winger Gelson Martins - Sky sources #SSNHQ

      BBC Sport @BBCSport
      Liverpool fear being priced out of a move for Mohamed Salah... Gelson Martins could be on his way though

      Liverpool are in contact with Sporting for wonderboy Gelson Martins
       
      One solace is we have alternatives of the right profile unlike the Suarez debacle. I'm not a fan of Keita Balde Diao cos he has been very very inconsistent and has attitude issues (not quite the team player mould). Costa could be a shrewd signing and Bayern are supposedly willing to let him go for 35mil

      Must be a bluff to get the Salah deal done.

      Why would we pay more, or at least the same, for a much less proven player?

      I don't think we would activate the clause to sign him.
      I don't know him but I think Salah is a better option given his experience and stats.

      Costa is a 4 goal a year player..that's it; if we want a guaranteed 4 goals he would be our man

      I know this seems like a clever negotiating strategy but by christ it also looks like absolutely peak Liverpool transfer incompetence!

      It looks that way to people who follow the rags and twitter like they were gospel.....I don't think the manager is incompetent and seeing how he has the final say on all transfers (yea or ney) I think I will wait before I unleash my outrage.


      Amazing how the paper,social media and agents can so easily manipulate the emotions of so many people with utter nonsense

      It is like wanting to go to a 5 star restuarant, but getting half way, deciding to go to mcdonalds, finding a cheeseburger expensive, then going nextdoor and buying a packet of crisps.

      No guarantees to be honest, different tactics, different styles of play etc etc suit players in different ways, could be worse, could be par, could be better.

      That is an article I read yes. Who knows if it is good business, I don't but if Klopp wants a player it's for a reason and I trust him.

      There's no way we pay £40m for this guy from the Portuguese league if we won't offer less for Salah.

      Absolutely. And to even contemplate doing so would be madness. Salah is the desired target, therefore just pay the £35m fee and move to the next target.

      Ooh it all started off so rosy. Bids in for Salah and VVD, rumours of moves for Lacazette and and Keita.

      But alas this is Fenways Liverpool and nothing ever is done properly.

      Won't pay up on Salah. F**ked up a move for VVD. On to secendary targets we go and it all seems like a little bit of history repeating.

      just like we said no to Cristiano Ronaldo and Ricardo Quaresma both for 12 million because they came from the Portuguese league

      I am wondering whether we are after both Salah and Martins, the latter an alternative to Keita.
      From clips I have seen of him, his style of play would make him a good/ dynamic midfielder with an eye for a pass... just saying...

      Keita? Martins is a winger, Keita is a box to box centre mid.

      Gelson Martins update

      This comes courtesy of Portuguese newspaper A Bola, who first mooted interest in Sporting man Martins yesterday. It claims the Portuguese side would be demanding at least €50m for the transfer. That’s just a little less than his €60m release clause. The report suggests Liverpool, however, are not willing to go higher than €40m for the 22-year-old.

      Seriously, why the f**k are we pussyfooting around?! We are ready to pay €40m for a raw 22-yr old but will not go above €34m for Salah!! F***ing shambles we are.. and my last nerve just exploded!

      As a Sportinguista, 50m€ is a complete joke for him - can't imagine it being anything more than games from either our side or from Sporting's.

      Bernardo Silva, who is a much more talented player, went that same fee and came from a more talented team in a stronger league where he was pivotal to that team winning the league.

      If we really want to raid the Portuguese league, go for Rúben Neves, Danilo (Pereira), or William Carvalho for our CDM and grab a guy like Iuri Medeiros for the wing for cheaper from Sporting - who had a better season on loan at Boavista than Gelson had at Sporting and who Sporting will use to replace Gelson with and probably sell for another 50m€ in a year's time.
