Liverpool have enquired about the possibility of bringing Ryan Bertrand who is in his last year of contract.

Liverpool enquired about Ryan Bertrand. The player is in the last year of his contract and the club is interested.

Believable1 Unbelievable6

28 Jun 2016 13:29:24
He has looked very good, Ed2 got this one spot on. We all wanted the one with the exotic name from the Spannish league, and the boring English one ended up being the better option.

Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jun 2016 04:51:34
Hello Eds,

This is specifically for ED2. With July 1st just around the corner, can you send out an update on the LB interests that you originally posted on June 5th. Thank you as always for sharing with us.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

{Ed002's Note - Ben Chilwell is of very firm interest with an offer alredy being rejected. Jordan Amavi is of interest and there have been discussions. Some remain of the view that Hector might also be an option.}

28 Jun 2016 09:43:50
I very much doubt Hector will be an option, no matter how many people want him at LFC. 30 million euros for a LB is just ridiculous, and there are hypocrites everywhere saying Chilwell is the one who is bad value for money.
If Klopp wants Chilwell, i hope the club gets the deal over the line.

Agree2 Disagree4

28 Jun 2016 11:39:30
I just want a competent left back, if that is Chilwell then welcome aboard. How many of us knew about Rob Jones when he joined and he was one of the best I have ever seen. (Was a far better right back than Gary Neville) .

Agree5 Disagree2

28 Jun 2016 11:44:12
Hector is out of our financial reach.

Agree0 Disagree3

28 Jun 2016 11:52:16
Hi Ed002

you have said we bid for Chiwell but it has been rejected can you tell us how much was bid if you know the price of the bid, plus how much do the want for Chilwell before they accept the bid, am i right in saying they want 10 mill for him, if he is a decent LB who can defend then i think we should go in for him.

Agree0 Disagree2

{Ed002's Note - The amounts are in the ballpark you have suggested but there is an issue with both the offer being too low and the proposed twrms being unacceptable to Leeds at the moment. It should be something the club can resolve.}

28 Jun 2016 12:41:24
Game Of Thrones - how on earth do you know how far our financial reach stretches?

Agree4 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 14:02:37
Re the bertrand rumour- if true- ed02 had this nalied before we signed moreno- bertrand better and cheaper. But we went the other way and saints got the better deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 Jun 2016 23:09:42
Hi eds

Any truth in the interest in Marko Pjaca?
Are there any new players Liverpool have become interested in?


Believable0 Unbelievable2

{Ed002's Note - Inter were looking for a January deal for Dinamo Zagreb's Marko Pjaca and will push again in the summer but will have to contend with interest from Milan, Benfica, Juventus and possibly PSG, as well as needing to make space in the squad - and that space would need to come from the sale of Marco Perisic. A number of other sides have also had the player watched this season but I remain of the opinion that it will be Milan will prioritise the player and will look for a deal before Inter are able to sell Perisic. Juventus could yet seek talks.}

27 Jun 2016 22:13:33
Hi Ed's the latest Left back we have been linked with is Ryan Bertrand another Saints player, any truth?

Believable0 Unbelievable12

{Ed002's Note - Twitter?}

27 Jun 2016 23:05:51
We had the opportunity to go for him years ago and everyone on here slates him and said he wasn't good enough.

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 23:13:11
Ed2 no I think it came from the express lol.

Agree0 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 23:44:20
He's another "Wing back" i. e. Not good enough defending to be a fullback but also not good enough attacking to be a winger.
We need a fullback who can defend.

Agree7 Disagree6

28 Jun 2016 01:05:33
We need to build around what we have.

Coutinho is our man, get him hector and give Phil a free role.

Hector, sakho and can will be a solid little unit behind him.

Agree3 Disagree8

28 Jun 2016 08:07:13
Hector is excellent defensively, and not too bad from an attacking sense.
Spend on him, and I'm confident we will do well this season.

Agree1 Disagree3

28 Jun 2016 13:03:57
Sure Bertrand turned us down to go to Southampton anyway.

Agree0 Disagree3

{Ed002's Note - No.}

27 Jun 2016 13:51:29
afternoon eds thanks for all your time and effort. its much appreciated.

you have mentioned an interest in Bastien, is this Samuel Bastien? and hoping you could let us know who else is interested? I have tried the search function with no luck sadly

thanks eds.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

{Ed002's Note - Anderlecht are keen to hold on to Samuel Bastien who has been on loan to Avellino but are aware of interest from a number of sides including Benfica (who have made an offer), PSV, Lille, Liverpool (Rodgers was keen on a deal right from the start of the season on the basis of youth scouting reports), Fiorentina and Genoa. Interest of Juventus has gone.}

27 Jun 2016 18:46:35
Thanks ed. Thought I would ask is it looks like we are definitely after a central midfielder.

Agree1 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 14:26:33
Liverpool have enquired about bringing neven subotic to anfield, although 1St team football is a big factor to him and his reasons for leaving bvb, all boils down to if klopp is offering him 1St team football.

Believable5 Unbelievable14

27 Jun 2016 15:25:29
I thought our defence was sorted. square tomato was chatting to Joe.

Agree4 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 15:51:59
Obviously with skrtel on the way out, and sakho looking at a health ban, and kolo gone leaves us with 3 CB in gomez lovren and matip, gomez is good and showing potential but klopp will not risk it, and he will want too bring another CB in, also one he trusts.

Agree2 Disagree7

27 Jun 2016 16:10:23
Although I personally believe our defense is now alright, if an opportunity arises to sign a good player at a good price then you have to move. Would Subotic improve our defensive options, yes. Although LB is a much bigger priority.

Agree2 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 17:54:29
Subotic is a really good player when fit. Would definitely improve our squad.

Agree4 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 18:10:44
I guess it would depend on the outcome of sakhos ban, might be worth offering him a shorter contract if he does get banned.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 21:31:23
Subotic wants a guarantee of first team football which he won't get, he said he doesn't want to be paid to sit on the bench so I can't see this happening. It's paper talk 2+2.

Agree0 Disagree2

28 Jun 2016 11:21:37
Not good enough for dortmunds first team not good enough for ours. Why can nobody see this? Let's just carry on signing players.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jun 2016 11:27:03
Sky sports just said Mane undergoing medical ahead of a £34m move.

Believable14 Unbelievable4

27 Jun 2016 11:44:08
overpaid yet again, so it seems, talented player but just wish we would stop buying southampton players (no offence)

Agree15 Disagree17

27 Jun 2016 12:01:26
34 million for mane, Zielinski for 12! 46 for Reus sounds much better.

Agree3 Disagree26

{Ed001's Note - really? This is the kind of stupidity that is annoying. This is not football manager.}

27 Jun 2016 12:07:28
Reus is not coming to liverpool, buddy. Wake up.

Agree21 Disagree5

27 Jun 2016 12:10:02
Does the cost matter really? Think it's really good signing me self.

Agree21 Disagree6

27 Jun 2016 12:16:31
Let's try ignore the prize and club for a minute. Are the player better than, let's say Jordon Ibe? Yes. Will the player an improvement of the squad? Oh yes! Do the player want to play for Liverpool? Apparently. Well that's all we relly have to worry about. Job well done! Maybe it seems a bit over the odds, but that's the consequence of not being able to offer CL football. Non the less we got three fine players for a total of £10 mill. (and proberly high salaries) early in the window. Four proper good players comming for £45 mill is pretty good business. Pardon me for talking money here Eds. Correct me if i'm way off!

Best regards
M. Smedegaard.

Agree18 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 12:33:37
Yipster9999 we could save that 46 million, sell benteke for 24 million and buy pogba.

We've got the best we could under the circumstances we've been given. Buying any proven prem player who is as good as mane isn't going to be cheap nowadays.
personally I think we've finally replaced the pace and directness we lost when sterling left, and added someone with more end product.
I think this season will be very exciting, especially with the addition of pep, Jose and conte and koeman. top 4 for us, even without European competition is going to a massive ask! But sit back, enjoy and support!

Agree11 Disagree5

27 Jun 2016 12:34:48
Well I'm not holding my breath, but I'll be the first to apologise if it turns out good business. Good luck to the lad, hope he sorts his attitude out. No improvement on Oakland for me.

Agree2 Disagree11

27 Jun 2016 12:37:52
We don't no for sure grujic and karius are proper good players smedegaard. Matip is proven and mane is good when he shows up.

Agree2 Disagree8

27 Jun 2016 12:51:54
Pogba isn't going to Liverpool, ever. Reus could, klopp connections and when he goes back to Dortmund for training, he's going to be on his own.

Agree2 Disagree15

27 Jun 2016 12:52:42
Also, we sold sterling for £49m

Just saw he's arrived for his medical.

Agree2 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 12:56:48
Who is Oakland yipster9999?

Agree4 Disagree1

27 Jun 2016 12:41:42
Yipster, why not sell all of our players and buy Messi?

Now that he's retired from internationals, he should easily be able to cover 11 positions on the field.

Agree6 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 12:42:19
We know Klopp has wanted to add width. If Marko stays then that's 2 quality wingers with young Ojo as back up and who Ojo can learn and develop alongside. He's coming now so support the guy. I'm nor all for paying £10m for Chilwel but if it becomes apparent it's happening then I'd happily man up and support the guy it's what fans do.

Agree4 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 13:09:07
A player signing isn't automatically questionable just because he's from Southampton.

Agree9 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 13:12:03
Just for the record, I was 110% joking about pogba coming to Liverpool. Jesus.

Agree8 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 13:21:14
Lets just get behind the lad. It's a hefty price tag but who's to say he won't be the difference. He's clearly an upgrade on what we have currently so that is a good thing. It might have been cheaper to just buy Southamptons entire academy and staff but if we offload Ballotelli, Benteke and others which we will have to to abide by FFP then it'll be ok. The Yanks seem to be running the club responsibly maybe not doing business the "Liverpool way" but fans can't control that. We just need to show our support win or lose.

Agree4 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 13:35:38
More then happy with Mane on the pitch as a player and I believe he will improve our attack. Disappointed with the fee, again we over pay, over pay Southampton, who signed his replacement for £12m a third of the price.

Rather our next move is to sign the Saints negotiation team and their scout.

Welcome Mane, price tag is not your fault and hope the Very best for your move.

Agree8 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 13:38:43
Oakland was meant to be lallana but I was typing with such rage over the 34 million price tag. I know we wouldn't get Reus but it would be nice to see us try and compete for big names. Is it just me who isn't happy with signing? I just see us keep making the same mistakes over and over again, players must think if I have a decent season in premier league I can move to Liverpool triple my wages.

Agree3 Disagree12

27 Jun 2016 13:49:46
Mane would be a great signing and could prove to be worth every penny. We've all seen enough of him to know what kind of player he is. Excitement and entertainment is what we all want after all isn't it?

Agree5 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 13:54:27
The fact we didn't get Mane for much cheaper a few years ago when we could have is Rodgers' fault, not the transfer committee's. The transfer committee recommended him, Rodgers didn't want him. He costs a lot of money, but if he delivers on the pitch then who cares.

Agree3 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 13:58:35
"players must think if I have a decent season in premier league I can move to Liverpool triple my wages"

Its Leicester, not Liverpool who have bid for Troy Deeney.

Chelsea are likely to pay more for Stones than we have on Mane, does he justify that?

Is Lukaku worth more than Suarez?

What about Sterling leaving us to triple his wages at City, how has that worked out?

I'm not just spouting random names, but trying to point out a couple of things:

1) Players in general want to move unless their club is winning everything (and sometimes even then) . And they will almost always move for more wages, especially if they have had breakthrough seasons. I'm sure Vardy has close to trebled his wages, but he stayed where he was rather than moving.

2) We have taken a 'gamble' with a number of cheaper players - Matip, Karius, Gurjic, and even Zielinski or Dahoud at £15-£25m - compared to their relative costs with experience in the EPL. For Karius at £5m, read Jack Butland at £15-£20m, for example. It makes perfect sense for Klopp to buy at least one player who is already proven in the league, to fill an obvious gap that we have in our forward line.

I too would love us to be pitching for some of the biggest names and be a destination club once more, but until we are regularly in the CL, that's unlikely to happen, regardless of the manager.

And before someone says "Chelsea can do it". They've been in the CL for the last decade or more, every season, and have also won the EPL and the CL recently. Much as it pains me, they have a much more successful recent history than we have, and the vast majority of players, especially the best ones, will want to join a club that is more likely to have success.

We have to be realistic about who will join us this window and the next, and hopefully this time next year, we find that Klopp has signed the right pegs, for the right holes, to move us closer to success.

Agree7 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 14:20:03
Pogba, Reus, come on people, they aren't coming! If Klopp can sort his attitude out, I'm happy, as he could just be what we're missing.

Agree1 Disagree4

27 Jun 2016 14:26:33
Spot on Zed. i'm not happy with the price and not sure if his stinking attitude will change and I hope it does. However, his talent and abilitymis nog in doubt and Klop has wsnted him since his Dortmund days so he scouted him way before we knew who he was. So on yhat note sndif Klopp ca fix his attitude issues, I am all for it.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 14:41:17
Brilliant post! Hats off to u Sir.
Karius, Mane, Matip and Grujic for a combined fee of around 50 million is good business to me. The all have room for becoming even better players than they are now and none of them will be on extortionate wages. We have improved 2 problematic positions (width and GK) and a quality LB should round up a fruitful transfer window.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 15:20:57
I just think he will be another el hadj diouf. Could do a lot better than mane.

Agree2 Disagree11

27 Jun 2016 15:45:11
Not posted for a while due to family problems etc but have read the posts.

There seems to be an influx of imbeciles on the site who slate everything and live in a football manager fantasy land.

It is no wonder ed002 slates us as fans. Get behind the new players and current ones.

Great signing and will hopefully become a great player for us.

Agree4 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 16:08:16
why do people care about the price?

Agree3 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 16:48:53
OK KSS - in that particular position he's being bought for, who could we get that is a lot better than Mane, taking into account no CL, no Europe, and with proven PL ability and stats, ready to say we could do better - give us names.

Agree4 Disagree2

27 jun 2016 17:55:19

Agree1 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 17:57:50
I welcome Mane. He could terrify a few fullbacks with his pace and skill.

Agree4 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 19:12:34
Diouf is a ridiculous comparison! Do you even know/ remember who El Hadj Diouf was?

This was a chap who was bought off the back of a scouting report at/ before the 2002 world cup. He had only played in the French league, not the EPL.

Mane has spent 2 seasons in the EPL, successfully scoring 25 goals in 75 games for Southampton, with a number of assists along the way too.

About the only comparison between the two players are that they are both Senegalese forward players!

Agree4 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 19:17:34
John B. lallana., save the money and invest when better players are available, or use it to strengthen positions like Cm and Lb.

But I'd rather go for, Pastore, draxler, schurlle, Munain, Lucas Moura, brahimi, to name a few.

Agree1 Disagree11

27 Jun 2016 19:26:16
Diouf was less talented, lazy and a csncer in the dressing room.

Agree2 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 23:40:59
If medical ok and we sign, the price is what they paid and the player is Liverpool. With sales we can recoup much of the money we paid on players - we just have to sell sell sell now.
If he finally arrives I think he can do well, price is a lot of money but he will get my support for coming and pulling on the shirt - as did Benteke, however we know he will be leaving.
I still think we need to sign the Southampton scouting team.

Agree0 Disagree2

28 Jun 2016 09:19:52
Hi Guys,

Feeling a bit tentative to weigh in on this Sadio Mane deal, as I understand from reading the posts, there are lots of fans who are against this signing at the quoted price.

Here's my view, I choose to look at Mane as the replacement for Sterling.
Now I know people will say, Firmino was brought in when Sterling left, but I see Firmino as a different type of player, closer to the Gerrard mould than Sterling.

The question we should be asking ourselves is, Who would you prefer in the team, Sterling or Mane? I know everyone will say Mane, he has a much better record, a hunger for goals and a better end product than Sterling.


Agree1 Disagree1

28 Jun 2016 11:23:12
The thing is that Man United had a £30m bid turned down in January and Chelsea and Bayern Munich both had a look at the lad. He isn't a mug and certainly is better than the likes of Walcott, Oxlade, Townsend or Yarmelenko. He is proven in the premier league and at international level, he is lightning quick, skilful and knows where the goal is. As Ed002 always rightly says, don't discuss the money, just look at what he will bring us, which is pace, goals and unpredictability. Support the lad and make him feel welcome.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Jun 2016 11:29:19
Yipster, we tried for Goetze and he rejected us out of hand. By big names I don't know who else we could realistically go for? Reus and Sane wouldn't come as there is no champions league and Rafa Silva is off to Benfica. Beyond him I am struggling because Mane is best available to us who we know has been successful at a high level. Like I say who else would we be able to attract? As far as I am concerned, the lad wants to play for us, he has been looked at by some the likes of Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal and Bayern, so he is no mug. I have had my doubts about him, but he is here now so support him and give him the freedom to show us what he can do (Not that we haven't seen that already. )

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2016 10:42:43
not read all the comments but to the one who said 'does cost always matter' of course it does. are you off your head mate? jesus we go and pay this for such a player its horrendous. we don't need him, and time will show it was a mistake. very simlar to a balotelli, benteke, carroll deal. stupidity, they see us coming, rediculous!

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Jun 2016 11:42:19
All I can say is that Man United were willing to pay a similar price for him and he was watched by Chelsea, Arsenal and Bayern Munich. This could be a really good signing if we show the lad some support and give him the confidence to just go out and do what he does best, which is make defenders look stupid.

Agree0 Disagree1

27 Jun 2016 10:45:44
Are Liverpool looking to sell Moreno? Or are they content with him. Cheers.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

{Ed001's Note - does this have to be an either or question? Only we want to replace him, so clearly not content, but we are not looking to sell right now. We need some cover first.}

27 Jun 2016 11:27:32
Do you see Hector as a viable option to replace him? He's been a beast in the euros!

Agree0 Disagree4

{Ed001's Note - judging a player in international footie is dangerous.}

27 Jun 2016 12:03:22
Yh I understand that ed, but there aren't many Left backs available that could compete imo.

Agree1 Disagree3

{Ed001's Note - available to who?}

27 Jun 2016 12:09:11
Hector has been a bit shaky at the euros. I find Germany lose their rythm a lot when he gets the ball.

Agree2 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 12:35:26
Available to Liverpool. Who are half decent.

Agree1 Disagree4

{Ed001's Note - and who is to say that Hector is available to us?}

27 Jun 2016 12:47:59
Well he would be if we pay the asking price. Hasn't he said he would like to play for klopp? So he would be available to us if we wanted to get him and overspend a bit. Didn't we just do that with mane?

Agree2 Disagree6

{Ed001's Note - oh give it a rest whiner.}

27 Jun 2016 14:28:50
He's not available to us is what Ed is telling you. Take a hint, pls.

Agree1 Disagree3

27 Jun 2016 14:45:04
Kman92, Cologne quoted Hector's price at 24 million GBP. Are u sure u want the club paying that sort of money for a LB (albeit quality one)? Not good value for money imo.
Still hoping for Chilwell as he has cope for improvement, and none of the attainable experienced LBs we could get our hands on are good enough. Might as well bring in a young lad and develop his qualities the way Klopp wants.

Agree1 Disagree2

27 Jun 2016 16:56:11
What have I whined about this time, or is it you crying about people that don't agree with you?

Agree1 Disagree5

{Ed001's Note - do you need mental help? You still whined we overpaid for Mane. Nothing to do with disagreeing with me, it is just you are too busy slagging off everything to do with the club to notice what a prick you are. I am done with you and your crap. You have nothing to say but bitter whines. You offer nothing constructive to a conversation at all. You just ruin every thread with you moronic crap.}

28 Jun 2016 11:31:47
He's so like Kross its ridiculous. Not for passing quality but a player that looks so in control of the game but basically zero pace, and you watch and just worry that getting in the prem would see them both destroyed.

I love the look of hextor, looks solid but he has neuer, kross and hummels right by him who clearly help him.

Last night he plays a short pass that probably would of seen us conceed except for the fact neuer was there.

He's a literally just wait and see player, can't tell myself fully.

Agree0 Disagree1

28 Jun 2016 10:47:53
Nah I tell you what Kman92 is right. we just did it. we overpaid for a fool of a player. or should I say, we almost have done. it's stupid, not bothered about hector. but kman is right. we overspend on daft players yet won't on decent ones. where is the logic. nevermind daft replies, explain it? it's stupid, and getting beyond a joke. about time we learnt our lessons and stopped this. 34 million on mane? its unreal. he WILL be a failure. I love Klopp but this is a mistake of his. We shouldn't have to spend that much money on such a player. such a waste.
