      Didnt want yo throw into the the general transfer/gossip talk as its neither. Its more a discussion on players who individuals think might add to our squad and why.

      Last night I was hugely impressed with Leipzigs Klosterman. He played on the left of the back 3 and did a solid job, even more so when you consider his main position is right full.

      Hes 24 now so coming towards his peak. Think he could be got for the 25 millon mark. He would challenge/cover Ttent, fhus allowing Neco out on loan. He can play centre back and, as seen last night, is comfortable on the left of a back 3 should we ever look to go 3 at the back

      Really? Interesting why him keen to hear? He looks robust and awkward on the ball plus I think he’s second fiddle to City reject - Angelino.

      As I just said he looked very solid last night and that was playing out of position.

      He opens up options to three positions across the back line.

      Thought he done a decent job on Mo. Is in the German setup to so obviously doing something right?

      I think Mo had him on toast very easily on a few occasions and he was easily done on the second goal too by Origi. In fact all 3 at the back looked average and I was glad we swerved Upemecampo.

      Players I was looking forward to seeing were some of their attacking mids like Forsberg,Olmo and the captain Salbitzer all 3 underperformed. Thought their best player was Nkunku but I vaguely recall he popped up at Newcastle and didn’t make it.

      I would like us to have a look at Pedro Neto. Can play at either wing, is very fast, technically very sure and ha sa great shot in him. Scored some great goals this season at Wolves.

      If we have to put every penny of our budget into landing Haaland, or Mbappe we could still land 2 or 3 tip players on frees.

      For example Jerome Boateng and Julian Draxler are out of contract this summer.

      Wow, Draxler. I remember before he went to PSG we were rumored in for him. Looks like we should be happy it didn't work out.

      Alaba is also on a free, though expected to sign with Real for what i understand.

      Agreed. Draxler and Boateng would be extremely average in the PL. The type of players I'd expect Arsenal to sign.

      We should be looking at real talent like Neto, Raphinha, Grealish.

      They have not played under Klopp.

      Shaq hasn't exactly been a success here mate, and will be sold in the Summer for sure.

      I think we have genuine interest in Raphinha and I'd be very surprised if we don't make a bid for him he's a top quality player.

      As for freebies Depay is out of contract in June he might be worth a punt.

      The player I'd love for us to get is Ødegaard, who's currently at Arsenal, massive potential player who will only get better and better. He grew up a Liverpool fan as well.

      He's a Real player on loan at Arsenal but was supposed to be a future superstar that so far hasn't happened.

      Had Jürgen had his way he would of had Draxler instead of Salah. Draxler turned us down, Edwards recommended Salah.

      You will be whipped mate. We need a goalscorer a hell of a lot more than another CM.

      Joao Felix and Pulisic are 2 that come to mind right away. Not sure if Felix would even be available, though, but Pulisic cannot be happy at Chelsea and could push for a move.

      Is Felix not more of a 10 then a striker?

      Well, being at Atletico he's probably more of a DM than striker, but i thought he was/is a front-3 type of player being able to play both wing and centrally.

      Good shout on Isaik, not outstandung nymbers but hes the type I think can grow into a giant under Klopp.

      Anyone watch much German football? Silva at Frankfurt seems to be banging goals in. Worth a punt?

      Read an article stating that we want to sign a striker to compliment what we already have, not sign a superstar.

      So would Andre Silva fit that bill?

      In 49 bundesliga games hes scored 32 goals for Eintracht Frankfurt. Thats some going. 25 years old
