      Any truth in reports we have bid £40 million for Bruno Fernandes?

      Probably not. Give a couple of hours and the ever cheerful James Pearce would have dismissed it.

      In the Portuguese League - I have my reservations about him and wary about using stats like above - certainly isn’t “sh*te” as been mentioned but I’m not sure about him on the small amount of times I have seen him - would all depend on the fee I guess

      Not sh*te but haven't been overly impressed when i have seen him. Against villareal he frankly was a disgrace as a captain. Spent the entire game acting the tw*t by playacting and generally being terrible as sporting went out.

      I've liked a lot of what I've seen - I know Diego is a massive fan - but a couple of times more recently he's looked a bit shot happy to me.......a wee bit lacking in imagination.

      Rui Patricio and Ruben Neves have done well coming from the Portuguese league, obviously  Ronaldo was a hit and Nani wasn’t the worst. Militao going to Madrid for big money, Jiminez to Wolves from Benfica worked out really well too.
      Joao Felix linked with a mega money move elsewhere.

      I know it’s not the greatest league but Porto, Sporting and Benfica would make a good name for themselves in the Premier League and other top divisions. If a player has the quality then it doesn’t matter what league they are from. Let’s not forget Virgil and Robbo came to England from the SPL which is a league viewed in a very bad light.

      IMO people tend to jump to the conclusion that players from the Portuguese league aren’t as appealing and have reservations because of the Markovic shambles.

      Really can't see us signing B.Fernandes unless we sell, Lallana, Ox or Shaqiri, and I can't see us selling them.

      Absolutely mate, I feel like a lot of English fans in particular are very negative towards other leagues when in fact most teams are made up from players brought from these leagues.

      Agreed, and that's daft to say the least, usually coming from people who haven't actually watched much of the player(s) and instead of keeping their mouths shut, still want to pass on an opinion - so they generalise on past failures instead of judging each player on its merits. The Portuguese league is poor and lacks competitiveness, but Benfica, Sporting and Porto's academies are among the best in the world, Portugal are the winners of the last two senior European competitions, of the u-19 Euro and Porto are the u-20 European champions (UEFA Youth League). There's lots of talent to be found there. Personally I think Bruno Fernandes is a great player on a poor team. Think he'd be a great signing.

      Btw, people love to generalise on other things as well, equally daft - a few examples: "we shouldn't deal with Italian clubs" (because of past issues or difficult negotiations - that is, if we depended on those people we wouldn't have signed Salah), "we have to stop buying from Southampton" (because Lambert and Lovren were seen as failures, then we wouldn't have signed Mané and van Dijk), among many others. I think this all stems from a great desire to provide opinions when there's none to be given, so why not go for a good old cliché.

      Well, there was a very generic dismissal from Echo that we won't be signing midfielders. They also individually dismissed names like Pepe, Fekir, Kruse, De Ligt, Depay et al.

      Bruno links haven't been specifically downplayed yet. Let's hope he makes that lean.

      Apparently we have happily lowered the fee for Camacho to Sporting so maybe the two are linked.

      I hope so.  To me, Bruno looks the type of player who could rotate into either of the the wide forward roles for Mane/Salah and we wouldn't miss a beat.  Both Mane and Salah can play more centrally if/when required, so this would give us a lot of depth and flexibility.

      Think we lowered the fee cos we wanted a buy-back clause AND a 20% sell-on clause. But hope it is also linked with Bruno's transfer

      The reason I tend to believe the rumors linking us to this guy more than the other ones is the fact that the more you look at him the more you see stark similarities between his game and what he would bring to our game and Nabil Fekir.

      They both are playmakers that can play high up the pitch/behind the striker and distribute the ball to the front three with a degree of creativity that we don't currently possess in our team. Both can put their feet through the ball from distance/outside the box which basically translates into the ability to unlock games where our opponents are happy to sit back. Finally, Fernandes, as well as Fekir, are good free-kick takers. These are the 3 qualities that jump to the eye when you speak about Fekir or Fernandes.

      Basically, Fernandes is our 2nd attempt at replacing Coutinho after what happened last summer with Fekir. Similar players with similar qualities that Klopp is probably looking to bring to the club in order to fill the hole Coutinho created when he left.

      So similar to Keita and Ox then, do we really need a 3rd attacking midfielder? I'd much rather we go for Dembele or some other high quality forward.

      As far as Ox is concerned I don't think he is similar to Fekir or Fernandes. He is good at carrying the ball, assisting with runs that open space for our wingers and he is solid in terms of the press and the defensive contribution he brings but he is not a playmaker.

      I too thought that Keita was supposed to be the player who would provide the playmaking ability to the midfield especially in more advanced positions, but we spent all season either watching him being average, injured or on the bench so it's hard to really classify him (I'd say he's more box to box than playmaker from what I've seen so far). However, what makes me think Klopp still wants a playmaker is the fact that when this whole Fekir story unfolded Keita's transfer was already confirmed for a year or so and despite that, we clearly went for an AM in Fekir.

      Edit: I too would like a high quality forward to strengthen our options up front.
