      He looks brilliant. He's fleet footed, has all the bags of tricks, a vicious cross and a great shot.
      I'd love him to sign for us.

      Klopp hinted yesterday that if we can get deals done Origi might be loaned out.

      Lemar in and Origi loaned out would be good business.

      Surely the club will have got some hint this time around that the selling club are in fact willing to sell.

      Have we only enquired or are we still at monitoring the sh*t out of him? ;D

      Jokes aside, if we do sign Lemar along with VVD and possibly Keita, I would happily sell Couthino.

      Would seem to hint at that mate yes, while Lallana is out for a while. We'd make do with just Phil for the time being, I'm pretty sure of that so this looks like a direct replacement.

      Must say I haven't really seen him play but his whoscored sheet is incredibly impressive. As I've said a few times though the form of Ligue 1 always worries me a bit because it doesn't always translate to the prem. They're talking about potentially Origi as a make-weight, that seems odd considering his last exploits in that league (was in the worst team of the season) but if it did, somehow just come down to that I'd be happy enough but much more likely it's Phil's replacement.

      I have seen Lemar in a few international fixtures, but not enough to know much of his game. Someone who has WATCHED him regularly care to give me and other losers like myself a breakdown of his game and opinion on the move?

      Coutinho isn't leaving and i doubt monaco will sell lemar. On another note if we sign lemar does that mean he won't make any more albums ?

      Seems that way mate. Looks like we are trying to spend Phil's money before receiving it. Good tactic to be honest as it means teams can't take advantage, knowing that we have the money in the bank.

      I'd still rather we kept Phil than sign any other players.

      If there's any justice, we will keep Coutinho.

      So, we'll soon find out.

      That's the perplexing thing for me. Origi is much the better player than Ings. Surely he should be the one going out on loan, especially in light of the last two years being spent on the treatment table. Go out, get game time at senior level rather than the under 23s and make an assement there. Origi was boss two years ago in the Europa league and whilst he regressed last season, there's still a player in there.

      As for Lemar, yes, please sign him but for fug's sake, get a centre half in before thursday.

      Origi is simply not good enough - sell with a  buy back or sell on as part of it if anything.

      would love to see Lemar here

      and we defiantly need a centre half too. Lovren and Klav r liabilities

      Well, 'they' [everyone at the club] are adamant Coutinho's not for sale so, unless they are lying and just using this "transfer" to deflect from those 'lies'; I don't see how this left winger can be a direct replacement for him.

      Assuming, of course, that we do indeed have the go ahead from Monaco to talk and the club aren't making cu*ts out of ALL concerned again.

      I like my wingers and this kid looked good enough in the few CL games I saw but at 21 he really could be anything. Still reckon it's our spine which needs the boost.

      Intriguing news tho. 😎

      Well if you look him up on YouTube, it's like he's already signed for Arsenal.

      Seen a few bits about Origi possibly being part of the deal. Be good business that IMO, don't really see him having a future with us

      Very exciting news as long as this isñt an indication of Coutinho's imminent departure (which at this late stage Would be a desastre).

      I have a sneaky feeling we have privately agreed to sell to Barca, but only if we can find a couple of replacements, and by keeping things hush, the prices on players we are targeting won't be driven up.

      Does anyone know how much Arsenal's bid (which was rejected) was for?

      Articles say he can play central midfield, but whenever I've seen him he's been used in the front line. Would he only play as a #8? Could he be used in a box-to-box role?

      We all like a good highlight reel, but watch the Monaco vs. Juventus CL semifinal from last season. Not as inspiring.

      Divock could probably do with a loan or straight transfer out. From the looks of the start of the season, he may not be getting too many games, although we haven't really hit the fixture congestion yet. He probably needs to be a first-choice striker somewhere, and it's not going to be here this season. He has a World Cup goal at the end of the season like a few others (despite his lack of playing time,he was called up by Belgium for this week's matches).

      I remember being impressed with him when I watched him live, and discussing with friends who were also there that he might do very well in a more central position. He seems to have the skill set and the passing range. That said, I think he was always on the left when I've watched him, although he does move quite a lot around the pitch.
