Just curious ED01 and ED02; if you were at LFC who would you be looking to keep, move on, promote etc and buy over the Summer (given the likely reduced transfer pot) and given the crazy stats of shots taken to goals scored at Anfield, is this purely confidence driven or have our forwards peaked already? Thank you for your time and the excellent site.

{Ed002's Note - Possible departures before the start of next season:
Adrian (G) out of contract
Loris Karius (G) will be sold for whatever the club can get.
Yasser Larouci (LWB)
Kostas Tsimikas (LWB) The move to Liverpool has not worked out to be an easy transition for the player and we kow that talks have been held between his agent and Napoli, Olympiakos and Panathinaikos. I am not aware of any offers and the price could be a major problem for the Greek clubs. We will see what happens in the summer.
Marco Grujic (DM/CM) will be available.
Gini Wijnaldum (CM) His representatives say that Liverpool have not offered a suitable contract to him and he will leave if a new contract is not agreed. He has been offered to Barcelona again but Barcelona are dealing with other priorities but could still be interested in the player as a Free Agent. Inter Milan have asked his agent for an idea of what he would be asking - but he is not there first choice, although being a Free Agent makes him attractive to them. However, he has made a huge signing on and wage demand that the interest of Inter will have gone. My understanding from an ex-PL player who is involved with Barcelona that there was at least a verbal agreement in place between the parties before the election - if that is the case then lawyers will need to agree the formal pre-contract and everyone would need to sign it. If he asks too much Barcelona will walk away like Inter.
Naby Keita (CM) The player has been nothing but trouble since he first agreed the move and spent a final year at RBL. He has not adapted in England and has failed to perform consistently when given the chance. Liverpool need to cut their losses but it will be difficult to find a buyer at a reasonable price and not all countries would be willing to grant him a Work Permit.
Takumi Minamino (AM) Sevilla are keen to take Minamino to replace Vazquez.
Sheyi Ojo (RW) Championship fodder
Mo Salah (RW/F) Liverpool could cash in to fund transfers but there is no clear interest at this time after he and his agent pricing him out of a move with previous attempts to leave. His "representative" has again been doing the rounds this time also asking Bayern Munich and again PSG if they are interested. I suspect that Barcelona and Real Madrid may also have been approached again. Liverpool will likely look to a new contract but don't be surprised of an offer from PSG.
Sadio Mane (LW/RW) It is just possible RM could look to Mane as an option.
Xherdan Shaqiri (RW/AM)
Harry Wilson (RW)
Liam Miller (F) will likely be sold once he returns from Charlton
Taiwo Awoniyi (S) Doing pretty well in Germany and a buyer will be able to be found there at the right price.
Divock Origi (S) Cercle Brugge are looking to Origi if they cannot persuade Chelsea to sell Ike Ugbo to them in the summer.
Roberto Firmino (S) Liverpool will look to upgrade at some point whilst he still has value – perhaps in 2022.}

Great info Ed, it’s a shame that we are never able to bid for the very top players such as Haaland or Kane. Imagine Haaland in this Liverpool team, would take us up a couple of levels.

Agree2 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 13:22:14
Never able to bid for top players? What about Van Dijk and Allison, the owners have spent big money when needed and im sure they will again, just not on ridiculous fees for the likes of Kane.

Agree4 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 13:19:14
Really good insight Eds2. Salah I would still like to keep and would add the ox and Matip to the list plus Not take up the option of Kabak. Philips has proved his worth.

15 Apr 2021 14:55:33
Were VVD and Allison being chased like Haaland et al? Can't recall but I don't think it was like that. despite us paying massive fees for them two, I think Champs point is that we're not typically in the market for the world's most sought after players.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 17:21:44
Oh I wasn't having a go at the lad just saying is not like Liverpool haven't spent big on top players. If the club did have £100m+ to spend I wouldn't blow it on a Haaland.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Apr 2021 15:39:07
Cahmps2020 take us up a couple of levels?

Strange comment that as as far as I can remember, before this season 2 champions league finals winning one, a league title (first in 30 years), a super cup and a first world club cup we have won toppled with having a player that's on course for his 3rd golden boot in 4 seasons, the worlds most expensive defender ath the time, and a world record for a keeper? What other levels is there lol maybe have a rattle at the world cup and euro 2020 and throw lebron james in nets and ask tom brady to play the full back role lol.

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Apr 2021 21:46:55
ed001 what value would you put on Xherdan Shaqiri Divock Origi, Harry Wilson and Takumi Minamino. and what would you think the club will put on them.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, it is not really my area.}

16 Apr 2021 22:32:08
Yes I really do thin Haaland would take us up a couple of levels. 18 months ago we were a different proposition. Haaland is nearly a goal a game guarantee right now.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Apr 2021 07:59:25
Awesome info Ed. Thanks! I feel like it is crucial the club starts moving out players this summer if they’re looking to seriously refresh the squad. Can’t keep adding players and not selling.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Apr 2021 10:38:11
ed002 would you have any clue on this what value would you put on Xherdan Shaqiri Divock Origi, Harry Wilson and Takumi Minamino. and what would you think the club will put on them.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what the club will value the players at, but none are worth a great deal but might just raise enough money to pay off the debt taken on last summer on Jota and Thiago.

17 Apr 2021 13:38:23
I don’t k know why people keep thinking we’re in the discussion for Haaland. He’s got a £150m+ fee, he wants £500000 a week and the agents fees are over £30m. Forget him, he’s NEVER going to play for us.

I think there’s a long list of players to move on this summer.

Wijnaldum
Adrian

Karius
Matip
Keita
Mane
Wilson
Ojo
Awoniyi
Shaqiri
Grujic
Origi

I’m uncertain about selling Ox, as he could be useful if he’s fully recovered. But we should move all of those listed on.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Apr 2021 13:56:54
6times who is going to buy matip, after one bad season everybody seems to want Mane gone I think he will be back to his best soon.

Agree2 0Disagree

17 Apr 2021 16:32:52
Sure Matip could be useful if he fully recovered also. Ox should be on the list too.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Apr 2021 20:00:09
I’m sure at the right price there’d be a buyer for Matip. But one thing is for sure, that for us, he cannot be relied upon as a squad member, and certainly not as a regular starter. Maybe a less physical league would be better for him? Set the price around the £10m and I’m sure there’d be some buyers.

Mane is 29, he’s not getting younger and he looks spent, we cannot afford to carry a player who is on the way down and given that we need to refresh the squad and we don’t have money to enable that (if we were skint last summer, it’s even worse this summer), the sensible thing to do is to sell a player likely to reach a very good price that won’t impact the team, regrettably that player should be Mane as his replacement is already here in the shape of Jota. Plain logic dictates that is the right choice.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - if I were the one making the decision logic would decree we would have a major overhaul and plan to be contenders in two seasons.

18 Apr 2021 12:06:48
The point being that if Matip is on the list because of his injury record, which I agree with then the OX should be on it too? He is as equally unreliable as Matip and Keita imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2021 12:13:51
I think Ox should be added to the list too. He isn’t the player he was and doesn’t make an impact anymore or near the starting 11.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 20:47:58
Ed’s which teams are interested in mane if he were to move is there any solid interest?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any approaches to Liverpool for Mane. If Liverpool want to make him available it will be done through his agent.}

15 Apr 2021 12:58:48
Worried that he has lost that burst of pace a little, seems to be struggling with all parts of his game though.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 14:08:33
Mane and firminos cycles have come to an end at liverpool as consistent first teamers. Firminos decline has been for a couple seasons now and it’s been clear for a while we’ve needed an upgrade in that position, especially when you take into account we were about to bring in Werner in the summer. I personally think firmino should move on and it would be best for all parties, he gets a fresh start and the club tries to upgrade with hopefully a decent fee from his sale. At most he should only be a squad player, if he is to stay, but somehow I see us persisting with him in the starting 11, much to our detriment. Mane is following the same trend, we see glimpses of the old mane but he’s lost his edge, we see more of the poor sides of mane that we’ve come to see in recent years rather than the good sides. I’m still willing to give him time, but I just think his fate is the same as firminos at the moment. Both need fresh starts and we need decent fees from their sales, problem is salah could force his way out and that leaves us in a whole heap of problems, if salah wasn’t an issue and was guaranteed to stay at the club then I would let mane and firmino go and try bring in better performing players offensively in a heart beat.

Agree0 0Disagree

Kman, Sadio will be grateful to you I'm sure.

14 Apr 2021 17:56:09
With Bayern apparently looking for a new manager at the end of season is Klopp someone they are interested in? Do you think they would try tempt him? I just worry the biggest job in Germany may be hard to turn down for him.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Bayern want to keep HF who is probably the second choice behind JK for the Germany job. They could well look to JK if HF wins out with the Germany job - but there are probably several other options to be considered there.}

15 Apr 2021 06:55:15
Surely BM will be primarily interested in Nagelsmann if HF leaves.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Apr 2021 07:26:02
I suspect Nagelsmann will end up at BM if Flick leaves this summer, but I guess the question is whether they think he's ready. He's still really young for a manager and has never been at a club the size of BM where egos and big personalities clash from the dressing room all the way up to the boardroom. Also, the fact that he's never won any silverware might count against him, but then again, he's been up against the might of Bayern his entire managerial career so far.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - and RBL are still in the DFB pokal which Bayern are out of so he might win it??

But I think if Klopp wanted the Bayern job, he will get it. Personally I would be a bit surprised of Klopp left right now but who knows.

15 Apr 2021 13:51:21
I read a while ago that even beforeNiko Kovac was hired, Naggelsman was who Bayern wanted since Klopp was out of the picture. Now if Flick takes the Germany job and Klopp stays at LFC which he will IMO then, they could look to him again.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - That is not their plan.}

15 Apr 2021 23:00:10
He’s come out and said he would never leave Liverpool whilst under contract.

Agree2 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 19:31:04
After listening to the Blood Red Pod on Spotify, there's an episode dedicated to Camavinga. A year left on his contract this summer, would Liverpool be interested in putting in a bid?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed0666's Note - He is nailed on to go to Real Madrid by all accounts. Jonathon Barnett his agent has intimated that in many occasions.

15 Apr 2021 02:59:44
The same Jonathan Barnett who has slagged off Real Madrid and Zidane numerous times in the past over his other client Bale? These agents really have a cheek!

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - yes sir/mam, same Jonathan Barnett.

15 Apr 2021 08:51:19
Go to real and lurk in the reserves/ get loaned for 6 years?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - like Vinicius and Rodrygo? Oh wait they do feature in the first quite frequently...
In all seriousness, Camavinga will most likely end up replacing Modric or Kroos in the RM midfield if he moved there.

15 Apr 2021 13:53:02
Ed is correct. Canavinga is set for RM and has been for a couple of years now. PSG tried to take him and he even rejected them, I think.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 07:52:44
Hey edd02 i seem to remember you saying a couple of weeks back you wouldn't be surprised to see liverpool try to sign sancho, hearing a few rumours mane may be sold, could sancho be a replacement? Cheers.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - For Liverpool it will all depend on money. The issue with Sancho, and why he did not move last year, was the costs associated with the transfer beyond the transfer fee itself.}

13 Apr 2021 09:48:12
Well from past history we’ve seen lfc pay the highest in agent fees 🙄. That said in this case I think he could be a good player for the club with the right management especially when you consider he is still on 21. Is there better options out there tho. probably.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 09:49:48
Selling Mane will not generate anywhere near enough money to sign Sancho. There are better value wide players we can possibly get like Raphinha or Harvey Barnes. Sancho is not worth 100 million pounds plus agent fees.

Agree3 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 10:56:59
Harvey Barnes is a talented player but i don't want him anywhere near Liverpool after his partying antics last week. Barnes and Maddison have both proved now that they do not have the mentality to ever be elite players.

Agree7 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 09:27:41
Do you think sancho is worth the cost? We have all seen werner and Keita fail miserably coming from the german league.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Obviously it is nothing to do with Keita or the Bundesliga, but the cost of the associated fees makes him very, very expensive - enough to put of the interested clubs last summer.}

13 Apr 2021 09:27:54
Thanks ed.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 11:45:58
You say Barnes would be better value but if he were to move he would be very, very expensive.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 13:01:00
The money involved would be astronomical for Sancho, I personally think the clubs mindset should be about finding someone who can compete with bobby up top and replace him in the future while integrating Elliot into the first team theirs 3 positions upfront to compete for

Salah, Bobby, Mane, Jota, Elliot and a new number 9,

Salah is an absolute machine and entering into some of his prime years now and doesn't look like slowing down he will always score goals, Mane has had a rough time this year but he is still a fantastic player, Bobby just like Mane is having a tough time but he is a brilliant player and will come back into form, Jota is fantastic its a shame he got injured early otherwise I think he would of had double the goals he has now. Elliot does look like he could be special.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 13:01:43
Raphinha and especially Barnes wouldn’t be cheap but even if they were give me the better player over better value anyday.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 13:24:24
I know you don’t like talking about money ed002 but are these add ons likely to double the price of signing Sancho?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - About that.}

13 Apr 2021 13:54:31
I like Sancho but I think Raphinha would be better suited to our style, I love his tenacity and work rate.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 13:59:06
I don't think it's worth the outlay for Sancho and I can't see it happening unless we sell mane to cover some of the costs. There has to be better options out there. Thanks for the reply.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 14:24:36
Sancho is no better than Raphinha or Barnes imo. So it makes sense to get whoever is cheaper of the 3.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 15:54:58
Raphina is a good player but I don’t think we’ve shown any interest which makes little sense. So is the fact sancho is English a factor for squad numbers here?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No, clubs do not make what would be a huge investment because of squad numbers.}

13 Apr 2021 16:25:18
Ya'll don't understand football if you think rafinha and barnecles are anywhere near sancho!
I get sancho price is astronomical but please stop with these comical comparisons
He might not justify his price tag for some but if he going to give 10 goals and 10 assists every season for next 10 years i think its still a good investment.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 17:18:02
Sancho is very much over rated IMO. He won’t get 10 goals and 10 assists either, he is having a poor season as well. For £60m maybe at £120m NEVER.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - something we agree on, that first sentence.}

13 Apr 2021 17:30:30
All personal choice but look at his numbers and then his age. His numbers are off the scale, IMO he is a generational talent, but one who has to continue to work hard and improve aspects of his game to hit the high ceiling he has. I do feel the numbers will end up being prohibitive for Liverpool and therefore we should and will look elsewhere.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 17:45:16
Thanks Ed002. Talented kid no doubt but that kind of outlay for him is obscene to the extreme. The kid needs to be careful his agents/ hangers on/ parasites don’t price him out of a move and ruin a promising career somewhere. I always worry though when I hear about ridiculous agent fees though, makes me wonder about the players motivation (money)

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 19:12:57
I don't understand. Englishmen hype up players like barnes, that other lad at leicester, that one lad at west ham and chelsea that are at best decent players. And there is a genuine talent in sterling molds and he is over hyped. Like in his worst season for dortmund the lad has 6 goals and 9 assists. For forwards its about the numbers. If he'd be 20 million less he would have been playing for Manchester united which he might well be next season.
I don't say we buy him as we already have better players in his position but surely if one of front three has to go (and i hope not) and we have to sign an english player his name will be should be at top of that list.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - his transfer fee hasnt put off most teams from considering him, its his other fees involved in the deal like "agent fees" and sorts. Just think of it like this, Liverpool bought Jota for a smaller fee than the extra fee needed for the Sancho deal last season.}

13 Apr 2021 19:25:38
Understood the transfer fees are astronomical and tbh nobody wants to pay agents that kind of insane sum. But i think some club will pay 100 million for him if it can be negotiated that way w. o the absurd agent fee.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - more clubs would be willing to negotiate a deal with Dortmund if the other fees involved werent so huge.}

13 Apr 2021 19:59:46
MK. Salah went partying in Egypt, his brothers wedding when he clearly wasn't meant to. Elite footballer all the same! Maybe we shouldn't throw a player under a bus when our own have done the same.

To be fair though that was his brothers wedding not just some random party.

Sancho has only 6 goals this season in the league against mainly championship defenders, enough said.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 07:46:08
I wish the main European leagues would have an agreement to cap agent’s fees. They are true parasites. Cap them at say a maximum of 2m. Really wouldn’t be that difficult especially as the elite clubs are the ones which matter to these super agents.

Agree3 0Disagree

14 Apr 2021 14:08:57
Ed001 I have not seen enough of Sancho but when I have seen him he has not pulled any trees up. His stats are really good though am not sure haaland playing upfront helps him every time I see him his work rate is not the best and Dortmund seem to be a worse side with him it.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I am not a big fan, never impressed me when I have seen him and I don't understand the hype. Now Bellingham I would move heaven and earth to get him, he is the real deal I think.}

14 Apr 2021 15:58:07
Agree with you there Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - on Bellingham?} Become a Patron!

14 Apr 2021 20:54:21
Any chance we could be interested in signing Bellingham ed? One can dream.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool showing any interest and whilst BD may have a whole bunch of players available, he won’t be one.}

12 Apr 2021 21:12:29
Did anyone else read in the Daily Mail that PSG have spoken to Salah about joining them in the summer.
Isn't this an illegal approach?

Believable1 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - I have explained that they are one of the clubs his agent has been talking to. Not the player.}

13 Apr 2021 00:17:44
Salah is probably in the top 5, definitely in the top 10 forwards in world football. He seems to be getting better as well. He's well on course for a good 32-35 goals this season again. I don't think Salah will leave anyway. I think the big clubs will have their eyes on the likes of Mbappe, Haaland and Sancho with them being 6-8 years younger. In the current climate who can afford and is willing to pay the fee and wages for Salah? He'll be the best part of a €400m investment over a 5 year contract.

Agree2 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - 32-35 goals???? Are you joking scouser??!

13 Apr 2021 02:47:30
Salah already has 28 goals and still has a minimum of 8 games left to play, he should get to 32 goals easily.

Agree9 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 03:20:08
Salah already has 26 goals in all competitions. I think he will score atleast 4 more to make it 30.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed077's Note - I think he has 28 goals and 4 assists in all comp.

13 Apr 2021 03:26:40
Well PSG can get lost. If they want a forward, they can have Origi, Mane or Bobby.
Losing Salah would be a disaster. Tie him up to a new contract and make sure he stays put for a while.

Agree4 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 07:15:05
Farmers league.

Agree2 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 09:50:51
This is the perfect time to sell Salah, and bring in someone younger.

If he hits the skids next year like Mane has doner, he will be a 30 year-old who who will not fetch a large transfer fee.

But there are very few potential buyers for him. Probably only 4 or 5 clubs around Europe could pay him the wages he will be looking for.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 10:05:51
And Salah is short. That's why he's so good.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Apr 2021 11:20:37
Ed0666 he has 28 already. 7 league games and at least 1 Champions League game is more than enough for him to get 4-7 goals in my opinion.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed0666's Note - sorry mate I had a brain fart was thinking of another striker.

12 Apr 2021 07:51:24
Linked with Pedri from Barca, any chance and how much would he likely cost?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona have no intention of selling Pedri which means that any interested side would need to make an offer in line with his release clause in order to have the opportunity to talk with him.}

13 Apr 2021 07:02:02
Thanks for the response Ed, I'll write him off. Look forward to the sharkopod. One question if you have the time, would you keep kabak or not? I think he's a little slow and don't think he's suited to the pace of our league.
