With the way we are playing the 4-2-3-1 we will probably see an attacking midfielder who can play off the left but can play in midfield the few teams we go to a 4-3-3.

Maddison and Anderson are examples. Both have played in a front three and deeper, as well as off the left.

Thereís a guy, whoís apparently unhappy, at Barca that would be ideal for that.

We've signed some very good players at great value from the relegated clubs in the past,the season is far from over but putting the cut-off point at 22 points and Palace who do you like from those teams if you could sign 1 player who'd also fit our style of play etc.?

Sessegnon as mentioned above is the obvious one, then possibly Tarkowski, Lascelles, or Redmond.

Yep he would be perfect for us. The best thing as well is that he probably wouldnt be as influential as he was before because lets face it, he might slow us down.

Not sure he would do well with our style of play. He is very much a non involved striker who thrives on space in behind the opposition defence. Any striker we would sign would need to be able to do good work outside the box and with the ball as well.

Striker wise we are set though.
Salah and Origi are our only strikers. Sturridge plays more like a number 10 for us as he canít run anymore. I donít think weíll sign someone who is just a striker though, too few games available for such a player as Salah seems very durable.

But if Origi leaves, and he hardly plays anyway, Iím not sure who our number 9 would be if - god forbid - Salah was out for a month. We did well with the Mane-Firmino-Coutinho attack in 16/17, but Mane plays a slightly different role now - although I think he could revert to how he played before - and of course we donít have another attacker like Coutinho in the squad. Shaqiri is good, but not that good.

Shaqiri is good, but not that good.

Salah is and if we went back to a 4-3-3 we could use Mane in a Salah role off the right with Firmino doing the false 9, like in 16/17. We also have Rhian Brewster as well.

The only player we dont have a replacement or alternative for is Mane on the left. We have tried Keita there and I am certain we would try Lallana there as well but not sure they will suit that role.

I think Salah, Firmino, Mane, Brewster, Shaqiri and another new attacker who is of a really good level is the right number we need, regardless of whether Sturridge and Origi leave.

Agree with that, although I donít know how good Brewster really is. Heís mentioned a lot, but the step up to senior football is pretty great, certainly to our current level.

Ideally the new player would be able to play both Maneís current role and Salahís, but I donít know who that could be. Mane himself is probably the best player of that kind that we can get, so another left sided attacking midfielder/wideforward makes a lot of sense.

I6d say what City did in buying b. Silva is closer to what we should be doing than signing someone like Mahrez. Get the best young player you can who can rotate in to a few positions. They get plenty minutes still and you try to create a succession plan for when one of the front 3 starts to drop off

Do you mean Salah's role on the right or through the middle? There is a good analysis of Werner that shows why he would be a good option to rotate with Mane and play through the centre.

Personally I think Edwards envisioned our midfield this year as Fabinho deepest, Keita middle and then Fekir the most forward. 

Personally I think it is Herr Klopp that envisions our midfield and Edwards is asked to recruit based on JK's idea of a midfield.
This club is greater than any one player.

As Spurs are soon to be a selling club I think we should look to put a bid in for Son. In the summer though, as we'll be PL champions then and who wouldn't want to be a part of a team that wins stuff.

Itís a very similar role for Salah, even though the starting position changes obviously. But I was thinking of the central position mostly, as Klopp seem to prefer that this season.

City bought Nasri from Arsenal and United got Van Persie from the same club, so I don't see why Hazard or Son would be a problem. They'd know they're walking into a pretty complete team. We've got the best GK in the world, the best CB in the world and now that Ronaldo is plying his trade in Italy we've got the second best player in the world. Plus we've got Klopp.

Added to that as Champions and possible CL finalists for two years running, we're going to be a very big draw. Or they can continue with their stagnating teams hoping for a top four place.

I think this will be the plan for the summer.  Get someone in like TImo Werner for the front line.  A quality young player who fits our style and can play anywhere across the front line.  Would be ideal imo.

If either player decides they want to leave there's not a lot Spurs or Chelsea can do about it. We saw that with Coutinho. No club wants to keep an unhappy player, yes I'm sure we'd have to pay a huge fee for them but we're talking about adding some finishing touches to a high in quality team. City will no doubt improve during the summer, and we'll have to look to do the same if we want to compete.

I just wonder sometimes that as fans we have a tendency to look down on ourselves, not truly believing in how fucking good we are right now in case it all comes crashing down again. False dawns and all that.

They won't sell to us.  Hazard has made it very clear he wants to go to Real Madrid, he's not signing for Liverpool.  And Levy would laugh at us if we tried to sign Son.

No sensible discussion of potential transfer targets involves Eden Hazard, Son, Eriksen, Coutinho, Dembele or Fekir.  It's not looking down on ourselves at all, just reality.

We've made it this far by being smarter in the market than a lot of other teams, picking up players who fit us well and cost less than or close to what they're worth. I don't think we should throw that out of the window and start swinging our dicks around trying to buy from our competitors for massive fees.

I think we'll have just have to agree to disagree mate. In reference to the bolded part, I'll always believe that everyone has a price. As far as I'm concerned Levy can laugh as much as he wants, but if Poch, Kane, Alli, Eriksen or Son tell him they want to leave I don't think he's left with much choice but to extract top dollar.

We made it so far but when it came to CB and GK we had to go out and pay a massive fee to move us to the next level. It's not about swinging dicks, it's about improving the depth of our squad. Personally I think Son would suit us quite well.

We definitely should sign a few players, never have a better chance at winning the title and our squad is clearly thin.

It just needs to be some players that can come in and do a better job than Moreno, Sturridge and Origi, could we do worse things than rival this Chinese club for an unsettled Arnautovic.. Especially at £35 million.

I don't recall saying he wasn't very good; I think I said he was good, hadn't seen enough to be convinced he was great, or would be worth the kind of money being reported.  I didn't think we'd spend that much on a goalkeeper and thought it was more important we get the Fekir-type signing done.  I didn't like the relentless bashing of Karius either which sometimes overstepped the line into personal abuse.

Having seen Alisson play consistently I've admitted he is absolutely great and is worth the money we paid.

Discussing Coutinho? Who did?

While I do have my serious issues with his August 2017 behaviour, if it's true that Barcelona want rid in summer, if it's for 55-60 mil and not more than that... he sort of fits the bill for what we don't have right now in a creative playmaker/free kick maestro/inverted backup winger when Manť can't play, doesn't he?  :-X It's not like Alisson and Firmino wouldn't welcome him with open arms.

Either way, I'd think he'd end up at PSG, Chelsea or Bayern if he leaves in summer, and I do think Klopp has a rather long memory on "antics". Either way, it's a shame we won't get to see his free kicks in red at Anfield again. Some of them were ridiculously good.

I think this will be the plan for the summer.  Get someone in like TImo Werner for the front line.  A quality young player who fits our style and can play anywhere across the front line.  Would be ideal imo.

Money-wise he would only have a year left on his contract too so for me, he makes the most sense.

Whether we're interested or he wants to leave Germany remains to be seen but if we could someone like Werner for around £50m it could prove to be a steal given his quality and ability to play across the front.

There's a free kick specialist in the Championship.

You really think Chelsea or Spurs would sell their best players to us?

I wasn't sure whether you were joking or not, there's no chance of it happening.

The biggest problem with getting Son is that his contract runs until 2023 and by then he's 31 anyway.

I always found it odd we didn't pounce when Pochettino wanted him rid a couple of years ago.
