From the rumours i've heard and read I think our squad definitely needs 2-3 quality players that can improve our starting xi with an additional 2-3 players coming in to improve the depth of the squad.
Ins: Van Dijk (desperately want him)
Young striker (not sure who)
Maybe another younger players which is better than we currently have.

Van Dijk seriously? Another over rated ball playing CB that is flavor of the month and would be a really expensive mistake. Better try for someone like Nastasic who has played in the premier league before and faced and overcome criticisms about his quality by becoming a mainstay in Schalke's defense.
Agree about Paredes and Brandt, but we seriously need a LB and CB as first priorities.

Van Dijk has more premier league experience than nastasti, he was awful for city and really didn't look like preimier league quality in my opinion. Van Dijk has Ben quality this season and has definitely been one of the better defenders in the league, would be an ideal partner for matip in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - where do people get this 'Van Dijk has been quality' from? He has been good on the ball and poor defensively, constantly caught out of position. He has plenty of ability and the physical attributes to be great, but mentally he is lazy and sleepwalks through games.}

LB why not try for tierny at Celtic, yes he isn't the finished article but there's aren't many out there that are without paying over the odds. The guy has been good for Celtic this season and would in my opinion be a viable option.

Van Dijk may be over rated to some here but certainly not. He is good and better than anyone at Liverpool by some distance. We ain't getting him coz he is ridiculously priced at. Paredes is a decent option, A deep lying playmaker wee severely need. Brandt is sure and certain.

12 Mar 2017 13:27:15
Who do you suggest for CB then Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - Nastasic is a good left footer, Gimenez of Atletico is probably out of reach sadly, Romagnoli of Milan. Laporte is another probably well out of reach. Maksimovic, De Vrij all worth a look at. One I have heard a lot about but never seen play, so I am going off what scouts and coaches have said, is Engel(s?) of Brugge.}

12 Mar 2017 13:41:45
Thanks Ed. Would take gimenez for sure!

{Ed001's Note - me too, he can play in midfield as well.}

12 Mar 2017 13:47:40
Do we stand a chance at getting him?

{Ed001's Note - if you read what I said initially, I already answered that question.}

12 Mar 2017 14:13:39
If we do sign Ricardo Pereira then that will mean the end of the road for Clyne. Ed002 did say Pereira would be a good option and that Liverpool have been watching him.

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool did look for a replacement for Clyne in the summer.}

12 Mar 2017 14:36:20
And Liverpool were also trying to find Clyne a new home last summer too. Guess it was a case of we will bring in a new RB once Clyne is moved on which will probably be this coming summer.

12 Mar 2017 15:51:38
On the subject of players failing in the PL but worth a shout, I'd like to introduce Felipe Luis to the mix. Excellent LB, but could he be persuaded?

{Ed002's Note - (a) Filipe Luís did not fail in the Premier League. (b) He will be 32 by the start of next season. (c) Liverpool has zero interest in him. (d) He would not be interested in moving to Liverpool.}

12 Mar 2017 19:18:12
You were mentioning left footed LB's earlier Ed001 and was wondering although it's very unlikely would Salho still be considered by Klopp at end of season should our denfesive troubles continue? As I feel he is good enough to play for us ahead of Lovren and could be a better alternative to some other left footed LB's out there.

{Ed001's Note - Sakho is done. He does not deserve this adoration he gets for talking crap on social media while being a complete arse behind the scenes. Sooner we are rid of the fanny the better.}

12 Mar 2017 20:54:09
Felipe Luis stayed a season at Chelsea, did ok when played but wasn't a regular. Even if he was competing with Azpilicueta this is no success. A bit harsh to call it a failure though, point taken.

Anyway, at 32 he is far from finished. Could have 3-4 more years at absolutely top level, seems to be as fit as they come.

Haven't heard anything about LFC holding any kind of interest in him, but neither about Nastasic, Laporte or Giminez.

My point is he would be my ideal LB for next year. Solid defending, excellent going forward, used to Simeones style- not too different to Klopps. Would slot in nicely in our brazilian colony, and could be a steadying force in a back four looking constantly nervous. Nice role-model for Juanma, TAA and the rest of the youngsters as well.

{Ed002's Note - (a) Liverpool are not going to pay what it would cost to sign the player. (b) Liverpool has no interest whatsoever in the player. (c) There is no way at all that the player would move to Liverpool this summer.

All just fantasy football.}

Ok, are there another seasoned pro, used to playing fullback in a pressing system who could do a job for us and might like to work with Kloppie? A bit unimpressed with the names tossed around, both for CB (van Dijk for one) but particulary for LB (Pereira and that Celtic guy) . Need some experience and winning mentality!
