Summer 2021 transfer thread.

Recommended Posts

Where were you when we were selling Dom Solanke for £20m lad? Against all odds we sold Brad Smith for £6m! Glory days, me ma’s jam butties, walking to the telly to watch transfer deadline day. Bovril on me titties. Games gone.

Looking forward to a front 3 of jota, Firmino & Origi when Mo & Sadio are away for the afcon. 
 

January goal fest ahead

We'll have to keep everything crossed that none of those three get injured too.

We're never going anywhere near him at that price, but imagine how happy it would make @aRdja if we got him.

 

A Tammy Abraham / Patrick Bamford strike partnership….firing us straight to The Championship.

Arsenal really are going all in on overpriced English players what’s their thinking here?
 

Sure white, Abraham,  Maddison and even Ramsdale might become a lot better but for the fees they are rumoured to be paying they won’t have much room for a sell on so it’s a huge gamble that they can get them into the top 4.

I'd be happy with him too tbh. Price is a bit rich, but if some of that could be deferred to performance clauses and especially on loan at first, it's probably not far off his value. 23, 200 games, 90 goals. Shown he can score as a starter and as a sub. Big, quick, good touch.

 

Watkins would be a better option, but would probably cost quite a bit more.

 

edit: getting a forward will fully rely on us shipping Origi though, can't see anything happening without that.

There probably trying to get ahead of the FA pushing for new rules limiting foreign players in the league

Abraham is 2 years younger aswell. Watkins will be 26 this year. Older than i thought he was

Shaq is a quality player, can understand why he would want to leave. Klopp uses him far too sparingly. But letting him go for 10-12 million seems mad, it weakens us further. 
 

He scored 3 goals at the Euros and for someone who doesn’t “suit our style” he always seems to make a telling contribution when he’s on the pitch.

 

People say he hasn't done enough in a red shirt, but I'd suggest even the greatest players would struggle to contribute much from the bench.

Fair point, thought he was only a year older. Guess it's the time he spent in the lower leagues.

Dusan Vlahovic just banged in 7 goals in 45 minutes of pre-season. He's too obvious for us. We sign forwards who couldn't hit the side of a Renault Espace so we can "develop" them and look all clever.

Yeah, if that one performance against fourth-tier opposition in a training camp game doesn't convince us, what will*?

 

 

 

 

*have never watched the guy, got no idea how good he actually is.

It could also be that if Shaqiri goes to Lazio, they will sell Luis Alberto, which will generate money for us due to his sell on clause. 

 

I was planning to concoct an Echo parody headline about how Luis Alberto transfer clause could earn Liverpool millions, but it's already a real headline

 

Luis Alberto masterstroke could make Liverpool millions this summer - Liverpool Echo

His 7 goals are on YT.  

First 3 just tapped in from 6 yards, then a pen, then a nice finish and a couple more decent strikes but the oppo were dreadful.  

 

Lot to be said though for just standing around the six yard box....

Didn't Jota come in late in the window last summer? They may have another ace up their sleeve. 

Buying players late in the transfer window could save Liverpool millions this summer.
