      Free agents open tomorrow. Rabiot and Mario Hermoso ( left footed CB from Athletico).

      Anyone else think of someone that could help us?

      The best free agents out there are probably Rabiot, Depay, Yazici, Ndidi, De Gea and Matip but tbh we need to be doing better than all these guys.

      Dybala apparently available for 10m which seems crazy to me after the last 2 years at Roma.

      Adrian - Out
      Matip - Out
      Thiago - Out


      If you wanted to refresh the squad there are 3 positions straight away given the wages Matip and Thiago free up.

      RW will also need to be looked at

      Let's not forget the wages freed up from Arne replacing Klopp, that's around 10m a year too.

      Ugarte looks like a potential powerhouse at DCM. Would be very happy with him being signed

      Not sure we need any more. We were top for a good while last season, and while we didn't beat any of the top six (or something like that), I'd say we're not too far from seriously challenging.

      That said, a new defender, midfielder, and forward would be great. I'd be ok with two out of three, though.

      We need a new CB as we're losing one. I think we need a new mid, as we lost one we do have Morton and Stefan back though, so let's see how they're rated and if they're healthy. The wild card is attack. We don't really need any, but if we lose Diazi imagine we replace him. We also got back Carvalho

      We need 2 for the starting 11

      I think we’ll sign a DM, CB and then replace  Adrian.

      Any other incomings will depend on if anyone wants to move on or if Slot doesn’t fancy them. Prime candidates would be Kelleher, Gomez and Tsimikas if they want more game time and we could potentially see a bit of movement up top as well (probably Diaz).

      Would quite happily take that if it was something like Ugarte and Calafiori.
      Squad doesn't need loads of signings. Just one or two of the right signings.

      Still feel now would be a good time to cash in on a few players and freshen it up a little more but if it's to be only 2, then hopefully they're top of the range ferrari's and not broken down fiat's!!!!

      I agree. I'd freshen the front line by one.

      And we definitely should be buying a DM and a CB.

      Since when ?

      And also when did a club have a “starting 11” these days

      Rotation stopped that a long time ago

      CDM would be my biggest priority, Endo did alright in there last year but I don’t think he’s a long term answer. Also, Robbo is getting on a bit now and seems to be suffering on the injury front these days. An heir apparent would be wise. Also that will piss him off and we know he plays best when he has that extra fire in his belly. Also, I’m still not sold on Nunez and worry about Jota’s inability to stay fit. Another forward option would make sense, particularly when the Saudis come in for Salah again (which they surely will).

      Looks like Mats Wieffer off to Brighton for 25-30m.......

      All the early links seem to be off elsewhere, so it'll be interesting to see just who we target.

      Honestly, I really don’t want us to buy any feyanoord players or players from the Dutch league full stop. The epl is a big step up, more so now than ever.

      You're free to have your preference where we sign players from, the epl is a big step up for 99% of players.

      It's about finding the right talents that fit the profile no matter the club, league, nation or whatever people want to find to be picky over. There are successes to be found from all over.

      From all the big players we've signed from Germany in the last 10 years, who would've ever thought the best 1 would've been made under Rodgers?

      The 2nd best player I've seen play for this club just so happens to have come from the Dutch league. Kudus also came from that league and clearly he's made quite the impression so much so that all the big clubs are talking about signing him just 12 months since arriving.

      Louis came from Ajax, pretty good signing in my book.  :f_whistle:

      Thiago and Matip are gone.
      They were both out for most of last season.
      Bajcetic was also out for most of last season.
      Morton and Carvalho had a good season at Hull City.
      van den Berg had a good season at Mainz.

      There is something to be said for giving van den Berg, Bajcetic, Carvalho and Morton a run in the squad until January.

      After that, if there is quality to be got by all means bring it in, but again one or two players.
      Long term replacement for Salah being one of them.

      MacAllister and Endo there is decent. Although I would prefer a world class DM I don't think it will imrpve us that much. However, we surely need a CB ASAP, Konate has had injuries and Gomez is injury prone. Quansah is still young and needs to confirm that he can play for a top top team. Also, I believe that we cannot be complacent with Gomez, Konate or even VVD who is not getting younger, they all need to fight for their place. Defense has been worrying last season to say the least when you compare us to how good Arsenal has been.

      McAllister isn’t a CDM and is wasted there. We need a starting caliber one. Then Endo can provide backup. McAllister can play where he’s supposed to.

      Agree

      Don’t think there will be too many wholesale changes

      I can see a CB coming in

      And maybe someone for the front line if someone like Diaz is looking to leave

      Salah we need to see what’s happening with his contract
