      No chance of us getting a new midfielder (attacking or defensive) unless Lallana or/and Milner leaves.

      The source is David Lynch, LFC's correspondent for the Evening Standard. Not sure on his level of credibility though.

      But the beauty about this transfer window is the optimism that we're in the best hands unlike some of the past windows from 2-3 years back when it was disappointing after losing out on a few names. So, with these journos dismissing all transfer rumors left, right & center, this window is turning out to be really fun!  ;D

      One of few football Journo's out there that doesn't spread rumours and only puts things out there when he is 100% sure. I have found him to be reliable since I stumbled across him last summer.

      Aren't we in the same hands as we were 2-3 years ago?

      I would agree only he offers something different to all of our other midfielders... goals.

      Would love if we sign him.

      His style of play is actually quite similar to Firmino in my opinion.  He presses well, is good at carrying the ball forward and driving at defenders, has an eye for a pass, and most importantly has a wicked shot and is capable of scoring many different types of goals.  If we sign him, I think it will be to supplement our numbers in the forward line rather than the midfield.

      Only he scored and assisted more last season than Ox and Keita have in the last two seasons combined.

      Although I do expect more goals from Naby next season.

      Chamberlain has essentially only had half a season of football with us and provided goals

      Naby had his first season last year and began to settle towards the end before his injury

      Stick both of them in the Portuguese league and their numbers are massive

      I think he's a good player but I 100% agree with that.

      Based on his skill sets, quality, and production history I envision multiple roles for Bruno if he winds up at LFC...

      1A) Forward positioned midfielder acting as facilitator/goal scorer
      1B) Starting quality forward who can slide in for Salah or Firmino and not miss a beat

      Playing time is an important component in Fernades' next team decision and I believe Klopp can carve out a very enticing role for this guy and LFC will benefit from such multidimensional quality and depth.

      I would've thought the same thing, but we had the same amount of midfielders last year when we went for Fekir.

      Maybe Klopp really wants a playmaker in his midfield. Plus the guys seems mobile and versatile. Who knows, maybe we're really interested in him.

      Palmeri says they actually want Lazio's SMS (they were linked with him last summer too) given the Pogba exit rumors, so doubt they would go for Bruno if that's the case.

      https://twitter.com/tancredipalmeri/status/1147480416376512512

      Or in other words, Bruno has probably set his heart on moving to Anfield leaving United with no choice but to pull out and go after other players, also leaves Sporting in a situation where they need to negotiate with us having promised the player last season that they'll respect his wishes and let him leave if a sizable offer comes in.

      **end of wishful thinking**

      I think he is very central. He can play as a striker, but probably not as a winger

      We don't really play with traditional wingers though.  Our wide forwards tend to play very narrow.  Our width comes from our fullbacks.  I'm pretty confident he could play anywhere across our front 3.

      I don't think I've ever seen him play as a striker, but he's played wide left on a couple occasions
