January Transfer Window 2016

Recommended Posts

Gundogan hasn't signed a new contract has he?

 

I'd approach Sebastian Rode too if I was Klopp.

We are struggling for goals. Striker needed. I've said a couple of times that I think we will keep Ings and Origi as third and fourth choice next season, while I think it will end up being one or the other of Sturridge and Benteke, with Klopp likely to go for a main man who he wants and can depend on to lead the line up front. 

 

Whether that player will be available in January or not remains to be seen. It's also possible that Klopp will clear the decks up front more than I'm suggesting. 

 

So, a top striker in January, if available. 

 

I think in the next couple of windows the spine of the team will change. I think Sakho will get a new regular partner, and we'll also add a central midfielder, with Allen and Lucas looking most vulnerable to me, though the latter is a solid pro and a good player - it's just that we need a bit more than the post injury Lucas.

I'd love Gundogan but doesn't he have injury concerns as well?

Beyond that I've seen us linked with Aubameyang in which case I think Sturridge would be the odd man out of the 4 strikers we currently have unless Klopp wants Aubameyang as a wing rather than a Striker. Wouldn't be surprised if we were in for Reus as well. I think his opinion on taking Dortmund players will be not to unsettle them but if they're likely to be sold anyway then it might as well be to us rather than Bayern, PSG, Madrid, or Barca.

That Ruben Neves from Porto has been linked as well, he's young but from the admittedly little I've seen he'd be an ideal replacement for/understudy to Lucas. Perhaps has a bit more overall in his locker as well.

It will interesting to see the reaction if we buy someone nobody has heard of for 3mil or something, instead of 20mil and up.

What if Klopp rates Bertrand? What if he rates Ashley Williams? Going to be an interesting window.

Someone who I haven't heard of for 3 m > Someone I have heard of who is shit for 20 m.

Totally agree. The meltdown on here because we don't buy big names is a big ridiculous at times. All great teams are the sum of their parts, regardless of price. If it was all about price then Real would have won a lot more over the last 30 years than they have done.

 

One thing we do know is that Klopp will buy players that will run through walls for him. That's already a massive plus.

Wolfsburg signed Champions League winner Dante from Bayern Munich for €4.5M.

If we had been after him it would be €40.5 by the time Ayre got involved.

One good transfer window will match the whole Rodgers era.

 

You mean Klopp won't sign slow, short, weak, technically average players? Gutted.

Yeah, but he's been fucking shit this season. Him and Naldo should not play together. Serious lack of pace at the back

We'd probably be looking at John Ruddy and Kyle Naughton if the last manager had gotten more time.

 

Klopp and his team should be well ahead of the curve in terms of available German talent.

 

Rafa brought Alonso in during his first window. Along with various others, we badly need a player in that position.

Everything everyone on here has been banging on about for the last half dozen windows.Anything but more dwarf AMs.

 

This. And what I've been banging on about is pace, mobility and creativity in attack (and on the wings if you like). More off the ball movement, especially running in behind the opposition defence, is what this team is really missing. Our deficiensies in CM and defence are quite clear, but our main problem remains the total lack of ability to tear teams apart. Best evidence is maybe our total lack of counter attacking threat. When you face a quality team you know the one thing you can't afford is losing possession in danger areas and let them counter. When was the last time we really hit someone on the break? April 2014 probably.
