First time post so please be kind!

If the papers are to be believed (which I appreciate, is in itself is a bit of an oxymoron) Aubemeyang has been offered to Chelsea for £65m, shouldn't we be looking to offload Studge and sign him?

It would be the marquee signing all the fans want, would make an amazing forward line with the players we have and whilst I do actually quite like Studge as a player, he is too soft and always looks for the medical bench, and therefore can't be relied upon.

I personally would also like to see us sign a much better Keeper too as I'm not convinced bubble karius and Mings just costs us games.

Given we appeared prepared to sign VVD for a similar (ish) figure, wouldn't the clubs money be better spent on someone seriously top draw? I appreciate his wage demands would be huge but I can't imagine Studge is on £4.50 and a twix a week :)

My overriding concern, is this seems the first season we are looking to spend the sort of money the clubs we are chasing spend, but unless we go balls out on signings, I fear we are always going to be at least a season behind those teams on quality and forever playing catch up. I just want to see us win the League again like the good old days!

What are the Eds thoughts? (By the way Eds and Macca, I have been regularly watching this site for a long time now and am really impressed with the work you do for us supporters, so thank you :)

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely that Liverpool would look to sign Aubameyang.}

Personally I'd rather keep Sturridge and use him along with Firmino as our main strikers. Spending £65m+ on a striker seems illogical when we have an attacking line up like we already have.
Also I think if we were going to sign a striker, Morata seems to be available and is cheaper.

Madrid want £70+ for Morata actually. The best value striker on the market was Lacazette by a mile.

Don't think we really need a marquee signing, much rather us signed a decent lb than a striker, it's not like we struggled for goals last season.

12 Jul 2017 11:57:57
I don't like opportunity signings, especially ones in an area we don't need. Let's spend our money where it will have the biggest effect, on our defence.

12 Jul 2017 12:05:49
I like Sturridge but he only tends to feature in a third of a season if that, due to injuries or not being selected. Imagine our team with a striker who plays week in week out and only needs half a chance to score.

Besides, apparently Klopp and Aubemeyang really saw eye to eye, so I doubt Klopp would want him back.

12 Jul 2017 12:58:50
If we sign a marquee striker he's going to want to play every game. Then what happens to Firmino? He's not just there for goals, we have enough goals from the other attack minded players, he's there for his work rate, his press from the front is so effective none of the strikers above that cost 60-70 million will give us that. We lose what klopp wants in his striker. Balotelli can stick the ball in the net, Benteke can stick it in the net too. they're not the type of player Jk wants upfront, Firmino is!

Never going to happen why even discuss it.

Teabag I bet you're the life and sole of a party 😂.

I am indeed Jayden. I'm surprised you could tell.
