      Keita, Demirbay and a holding mid type, then? May decide to buy another center back in the summer as well. Works for me.

      Guess we'll go back in for him if the price is right. But purely based on this season, think we have other options at the prices quoted. Draxler to start with, might be much cheaper than Lemar.

      Not worth 9m nevermind 90m. Keep dreaming Monaco. Ox is better and he cost £40m.

      From the get-go I never understood how we woke up one day and we were apparently going to pay 90m for this guy. If you watch him play he is not a bad player, but I don't see how he is a 90m player.

      Add to this the statistically bad season he is having and I'm even more at a loss. By statistically bad I really mean when you keep hearing ''90m'' in your head while you're looking at his numbers.

      If we aren't gonna get a #6, I wouldn't be against Lemar coming in. The little I have seen of him, he seems like a very good footballer that can dribble and has pace, but most importantly, damn good in possession. Can play left wing or in the midfield 3 on the left as a playmaker.

      I think Keita, Lemar and one other would be enough with the squad we have.

      I'd put this one on.hold not just the price but the injury to Ox. We may have to look at covering that than spunk in out £90 million + on him. Personally I'd be going for Gelson Martins or Anika Williams anyway and go get Max Meyer as cover for Ox.

      I would be super excited to sign Lemar. He is electric down the wing and it'll just pile more misery on opposition defences next season, as if they didn't have enough on their plate with our Fab 3 already!!

      Adding Thomas and Keita would make our attacking waves relentless.

      Loving where we're heading under Klopp.

      The price slowly escalated because there was interest from both ourselves and the arse.
      Don't think Arse will be doing much any time soon. Also, a new manager might not think he fits in with his plans.  Could be with no competition the price will plummet.  ;D  Well, Wish full thinking .

      This Lemar fella... what has he actually done to justify the price tag of £70mil.  I know the transfer market has gone crazy but £70mil.

      Personally i think you offer Arsenal half the money for Ozil they would think about it.

      Ozil is a flap. Only has a good game when he can be bothered. We want hungry players, not pre-madonnas with questionable political links. Don't need any of his baggage.

      I’ve never watched him play so I’ve no idea and to be frank I don’t give sh*t, so long as the manager gets who he wants I’m happy.

      But jumping around into threads as you do baiting people is pure wummery.

      i never thought he was worth 90m a year ago. 35m would be around his price tag.

      Van Dijk had a lot more going for him. He is far more impressive than Lemar. Thankfully Klopp agreed. I know they're in different positions. Excellent defender beats possible talented forward.

      Nope

      The question isn't the individual player..  the question is the price

      If the player is right the price is fairly irrelevant nowadays

      I personally am happy for the manager to just get who he wants.. we ultimately know very little in comparison to him

      Again as I said I remember people saying we shouldn't pay 75m for Virgil..  you can deny it all you like

      I remember you banging on for months that Chamberlain wasn't worth what we paid and that he is worth about 15m... no more.. We've been ripped off and he will flop

      Footballers price now is far too difficult to put context to so I wouldn't worry your pretty little head about what you think player A or player B should be worth

      If the manager wants a player and that's the player then in Klopps words

      I don't care too much about the price

      He may have no interest in Lemar.. but I imagine if he does and he's the difference maker next season he won't be hung up on the price too much.. just the player
      The price won't be the deciding factor

      I’ll go against the head in this one and say yeh I’d still love to have him here - I think he has enormous potential.

      Instead of Fekir? As well as?

      Dunno - but I certainly don’t feel the need to destroy him if we go another way. When he leaves Monaco someone has a helluva talent on their hands.

      Price is loosely connected. We thought we were going to get a reasonable forward in Salah, we got world class. It depends on how good they are in the team of sale rather than purchase. This goes without saying. Van Dijk shown his quality and 75m was reasonable. I was wrong about Ox because he was subpar at Arsenal. I rate him higher than Coutinho for Liverpool.  I could never rate Coutinho so highly when he's so subpar in defence. Look at the game Countinho scored a hat trick in. Barca lost 5-4. There were a lot of games we could have won 2-0 that we won 3-2..etc or drew instead... where am I going with this? It's an example that Coutinho didn't give us an overall improvement even with his wizardry. He went for 145m or something so sometimes player price is based on what they add to the team and forget what also gets removed... So now I can use this information to make a judgement in Lemar.

      A price tag of 90m was slapped on him after an average season because he played a belter in a friendly against England which got our attention, since then he's been subpar in a league of less quality than the premier league, so it looks like 90m was an attempt to fleece us out of money during a time of panic because of Coutinho. Kind of like Torres and Carrol.
      We didn't buy into the scam and Ox shone like a gem, anybody who pays 90m for Lemar now would be an utter moron. Sorry to be blunt but his season blown big time, and I repeat this was in a lower league. I would like to say that the sky is the limit for Lemar, but I just don't think it is. He had been picked for France in the world cup, so if he has a fantastic tournament there might be a good player in there, but that's not guaranteed, look Baros and Origi.

      Additionally he scores so much less goals than any of our current front 3. Would we really pay 90m for a backup?

      If Lemar was 30 million it's okay. For 90 million we can get much better value for money, so price is important in my opinion.
      This is only my opinion, maybe everyone thinks it's wrong but it's an opinion none the less.
