Everything suggests we'll sign a forward - even the Echo are saying so. They are confident we will. 

Yeah, I think we'll sign a player for the rotation in the front 3, but I could see it being more of an older, steady-hand type a la Milner or Klavan.

 

I still think the original plan was to sell Mane or Salah this summer and go after one of the bright young talents. But with the pandemic and mis-management, Real and Barca don't have any cash and that's sort of scuppered our rebuilding plan a bit.

 

Now I think it could well be a 30 year old who's relatively unknown, cheap and has a decent record to be 5th choice (after Mane, Firmino, Salah, and Jota) and then try again next summer when hopefully more clubs have money to buy one of our front 3. Either that or if they think Elliott might be the real deal then maybe buy nobody and he gets 1300 minutes or something.

 

It's the midfielder that will be the main buy, though, IMO.

There's no way we are adding to our problems by purchasing a 30 year old striker. Look at who we've been linked with and it's all 21-24 year olds. Malen, Daka, Isak etc are all youngsters with potential.

Not saying it's what I'd do, in the medium term we definitely need to get younger up front for sure.

 

I can just see it being what happens when we spend 45m replacing Gini and then have 10m left for an attacking player and Edwards decides to just keep his powder dry for the next Jota and get a temporary fix to just have a body there for this season.

I'll disagree because Klopp has always been about long term thinking. And I think it's better we get someone younger like Malen who will need to blend with our system and be ready in 6 months just in time to make up for Salah and Mane going to ACON. I definitely think we will get a midfielder and a forward, both youngish with potential to be great in the near future.

I think if the club didn't see a option available this summer and decided to keep the powder dry there is more chance they keep Origi or Shaqiri for another year than just buy a older player.

As with most summers we compile a big list of deadwood that we will sell, earmarking the funds for a shiny top new player. But we always sell fewer then predicted, usually at a rate of about 50%. Which of the 'deadwood' would you keep? I like Shaq and don't feel he gets used enough. I also am still desperate for Keita to make it (while completely accepting he hasn't got close to cutting it here). 

 

I liked the little I've seen of Grujic but that ship has long since sailed. I'd like to see Divock get some first team football, hopefully does well at a midtable La Liga team or something.

Haha - nah, Doyle explicitly said 'Mbappe' is a pipe dream, but that he would be very surprised if we don't bring in a forward. It may be someone like Hlosek - but, I'm not sure. I do like the Mallen or Badou!

I have a random theory on Mbappe.

 

All the rumours of Klopp being friends with his Dad, FSG taking his family on plane rides round France etc mean we’ve actually convinced him to come to

us, hence why there’s been stories recently that Real Madrid have dropped out. 
 

Nothing to be announced while the Euros are ongoing, let’s him focus on that but he’s told PSG he’s not renewing and we’ve already struck the deal with PSG.
 

After the Euros, there will be no long drawn out drama, like say Thiago. It’ll just be boom and done.

 

Mbappe will wear Number 23, the same as Lebron James, Michael Jordan & Beckham (Beckham wore 23 as a marketing ploy). Only issue is James has just moved from #23 to #6 at LA but anyway…

 

Nike will use us, Lebron James & Mbappe in every advertisement they could possibly imagine. The extra advertising and endorsements will make up his lower wages. 
 

The £120m Redball investment will be the transfer fee and this has been the plan all along, hence the big push for Nike last season.

Fully aware I’ll be completely ridiculed for this but fuck it, I’m a dreamer!

Mbappe is free in 12 months

I think that is where Madrid offer him £1m a week - over 4 years, there is no way we do that.

Whether Mbappe leaves this year or next he’s becoming the highest paid player in the world. Either way it won’t be at our club.


In one.

I just wish I had the skills to photoshop Jurgen and Kylian's faces on the Big One at Blackpool Pleasure beach.

Sign Mbappe on a free next year, give him £1m per week plus £50m sign on bonus spread across a 5 year contract. Sell him within a week for £200m sign Haaland for £70m plus £20m sign on and £500k per week. Buy a top top third choice goalkeeper with the profits.

I know Haaland signed for Dortmund for about £20m, but were we ever in the frame to sign him instead of Minamino who we paid about £7m for around the same time?

Seems like tricks were missed to me.

I think he/his agent wanted a club where he was a guaranteed starter and one that will be fine selling him after a couple of seasons so they can have another pay day. I guess he knew that he would have his pick of clubs in the near future.

We also won’t do release clauses anymore either which was a deal breaker with Haaland moving from Salzburg.

That's something I didn't think of.
