      It’s been a while since we had a player thread regarding a possible transfer so here goes;

      No idea if this is true or not and never heard of the player. Personally reluctant to see us go back there after the Markovic swindle. Would suggest we are still firmly after a Coutinho replacement despite what has been said about Shaqiri making Klopp reconsider that. Guess we’ve completely moved on from Fekir too.

      No idea, had a quick look and don’t think he’s played even 20 games yet for the club. 19yrs old so I’m guessing it’s bollocks because we swerved Pulisic for a similar price.

      Yeah a 62 million pound bid for a 19 year old sounds a bit fairy muff.

      Quite a decent page actually as it goes, posts some good stuff on there. Did used to keep an eye on AnfieldHQ/Oliver Bond but he posted a load of fake bullshit from the sh*t rag about Mane, not the first time he’s posted their stuff either.
      This Twitter one is the only one I ever really go on now.

      Just caught a look at him on you tube, looks a special kid. If you look at it from a business prospective also he would be a good investment.

      If Klopp is keen on the lad, and we have bought in 15m- 31m in the January  window already, and can sell both Moreno, Markovic and Maybe Sturridge then even if we have to meet what Benfica wants for the lad we should, especially given how we missed out on Ronaldo, and recently Deli Ali... The Lad look as though he is someone that City, Chelsea, Real,Barca and Utd will be looking o sign

      Klopp was keen on Keita too, look how that's turned out so far ;-)

      I suspect it’s complete nonsense - you tube vids playing for youth teams - it’s like Gonzalez all over again . Very much doubt we have even spoken to Benfica unless of course to get a refund on Markovic

      I don't think we've made a €70m bid because that's an insane amount of money for a 19 year old and I couldn't see Benfica rejecting that sort of money?!

      But I do totally believe that we might be interested, he's a great prospect, broke into the team recently and already looks like their best player.

      Lazar blablabla Markovic, can you guys be any more predictable? If you know nothing about a player you can just say so, it's not required that you pass on your opinion on everything, baffling as this might sound to your ego! Benfica sold us Markovic, but they also sold Bernardo Silva to Monaco, and plenty other great players to different teams.

      Not seen anything of him Diego - didn’t even look at the YouTube compos.

      What’s he like, what’s his playing style/strengths?

      I've seen him play a couple of times for Benfica, but he does look like something else, even if the Portuguese league isn't anything special. I've seen him play more centrally and also on the left side. Not sure what his best position might be, but what is impressive about him is his ability on the ball, his movement, the way he's comfortable in crowded areas, especially for a 19 year old. And he's also been scoring for them in the few chances he's had so far. He's only recently broken into the first team so I find that €70m rumour hard to believe, but he's by far their most exciting player. Smart, very good technically, brave on the ball. I could see Klopp being interested

      This is one of my favourite journalists in Portugal talking about Felix:

      https://twitter.com/VSamouco/status/1081978953043243008

      Something like: "João Félix is the main difference maker in Benfica's squad. Goes into zones that no one else does, feels comfortable inside and outside, is strong in short passes, has a great variety of technical and tactical resources, thinks ahead and scores. Nailed on starter"

      sounds like he's worth what we bidded.

      Another journalist I follow on the player

      https://twitter.com/pbarata95/status/1085281842427846656

      "Intelligence in his movements, class and precision in each touch, coldness to finish, good thinking in each decision taken. João Félix's talent is something extremely complete and rare. Something strange would have to happen for us not to be looking at an era defining player."

      Just because you pick one that does not live up to expectation it does not mine you should not sign anyone else from that club...

      I could name two players straight away that did not make it in the Premier League but were exceptional players before and after they left thier respective club...

      Diego Forlan... Nothing went for him when at Utd, but when on  to be one of the most feared strikers in Europe

      Juan Sebastian Veron... From Utd were he looked a shade of the player they though that they were getting to Chelsea were he was played in a different system and showed why Utd bought him in the first place

      Ok there is no grantee on what you will get, but the same can be said of ever player

      Was thinking the same mate....watching that thru ball he did that split the 2 Leicester defenders and his long range shots reminds me a bit of Xabi Alonso.

      Could we get him, would someone like him interest Jürgen and what would be his cost?

      If we tabled a bid, then I feel all the scouting/coaching department see something truly special in this kid.

      Dare I say it, same thing Utd did for Cristiano ....
