    Being linked with Arnaut Danjuma from Bournemouth. I quite like his highlights reel.

    I get the frustration when other clubs don't seem to be taking finances seriously. How much money have they all lost during the pandemic?

    Loan Watch - 2021/22

    He'd be useful in an injury crisis. I'd only loan him if we don't sell both Davies and Phillips

    I really like Locatelli. £34m seems very reasonable and he won't be on massive wages already.

    One thing that hasn't been mentioned is the number of midfielders. If one comes in (Niguez?) that means we will have 8 in total. Hendo, Fabinho, Thiago, Milner, Jones, Ox, Keita and X. 7 of them on big wages. Surely Ox or Keita would be off? Now I know Ox has been playing in the front 3. So if we bring a forward in you have Firmino, Mane, Salah, Jota, X, Minamino, Ox, Elliott *. So again it seems high on numbers. Perhaps Minamino would be off? I certainly think him, Ox and Keita aren't all likely to stay. *Assuming Shaq and Origi are out the door.

    We could really do with some transfers involving players we have sell on clauses with - Luis Alberto, Ryan Kent, Danny Ward, Danny Ings. I've given up on us getting the final £17m for Coutinho.

    Sell on clauses make quite a bit of sense in the current climate.

    If we ignore Karius I count 17 non-homegrown players at the moment. That includes Keita, Origi, Shaqiri and Minamino. A couple of them are surely dispensible if we sign a forward. I don't see any need to focus on signing homegrown players. The fact we gave Adrian an extension suggests this.

    The wage bill will obviously be huge if we don't sell or loan people out. We have too many players! Probably another 6-7 to sell (Grujic and Awoniyi is a good start) and a midfielder and forward to sign. Given we already have Salah Mane Firmino and Jota up front I'd be quite happy taking a punt on a young forward who Klopp can develop.

    One thing we don't generally pay attention to is the betting odds. I wouldn't rely on them but they indicate where money is going (possibly some inside knowledge). To sign for Liverpool: Renato Sanchez 5/4 Raphinha 5/2 Kylian Mbappe 3/1 Aaron Ramsey 3/1 Donyell Malen 10/3 Piotr Zielinski 7/2 Youri Tielemans 11/4 Yves Bissouma 4/1 Fabian Ruiz 9/2 Saul Niguez 5/1 Kingsley Coman 11/2 Patrik Schick 6/1 Alexander Isak 6/1 John McGinn 6/1 Luis Suarez 6/1 Adama Traore 8/1 Pedro Neto 8/1 Dusan Vhalovic 10/1 Houssem Aouar 10/1 Jude Bellingham 10/1 Ousmane Dembele 10/1 Matheus Cunha 12/1 A few surprises there. Ramsey?????? Hmmm. I don't see Mbappe either due to wages. Have to do some research on Fabian Ruiz.

    Strange - you wait ages for a deal to be done and then two happen at once.

    Jota is a better finisher than Salah and Mane. He was on fire before he got injured. Not saying he is better overall of course.

    Perhaps it is inaccurate - I don't know.

    I have been looking at some of the wages of our first teamers and I can't understand them. Nat Phillips is on £64000 per week and Harry Wilson £60000 per week. Eh? These are not new contracts. Now it may be that there is some kind of upward gradient built into the contract but would we really have offered such generous terms to peripheral players?

    John Henry was about to write a £150m cheque for Mbappe but Klopp stopped him at the last minute as he didn't want to sign anyone who would block Harvey Elliott's path to the first team. Henry said thanks you've just saved me £150m. Or so someone told the Echo.
