Hi Ed002
You know what type of players Liverpool want to sign in January or Summer?
Any names?

{Ed002's Note - I would expect Liverpool to look at the midfield next summer and still look to a LM and again an AM - they are two positions where there could be improvement. I suspect that a CB may well need to be added but that will depend on youngsters developing and how Gomez does. As for Salah, I am aware that he and his agent are aware that they have put themselves in a difficult position with financial demands which saw them laughed out of Madrid and approaches to other sides came to nothing - regardless, Liverpool is probably the best place for Salah to be biding his time right now. The efforts to boost his profile will no doubt continue and he will doubtless be holidaying with a professional photographer again and be seen kissing babies and rescuing swooning girls with twisted ankles from being eaten by bears. But these efforts to sell him as the new Real Madrid poster boy may come to nothing as they have a first choice forward target for next summer. So right now it is hard to say where he could potentially move to unless things change - and they always do. In terms of a replacement, the player Klopp has made no secret of his desire to work with is Lorenzo Insigne but I suspect age is against that ever happening. So if someone were to push me in to saying who would be the best fit if Salah were to leave next summer, I would say Federico Chiesa. He would be a direct replacement, has similar attributes to Salah, is you, liked by Klopp and, although Liverpool have shown no interest, will be sold next summer - assuming Fiorentina can fight off Inter this summer.

It has been suggested that Liverpool will look to David Neres (LW/RW) although I am not aware of any approach from Liverpool - if they were to declare interest it would likely be at the expense of Salah or Mane - and not in addition to. Other sides retain an interest but none have really bitten. A couple of the interested sides have coaches who may well move on and that might well see interest move on as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002 thank you for that information. I suppose another factor for Salah is the price LFC would demand to sell him. I would imagine that there are not that many clubs world wide who could meet that price and even then some of them we would or should never sell too (Utd, City Chelsea etc)

{Ed002's Note - None of those sides have any interest in him. He and his agent want Real Madrid but that is unlikely but not impossible. His agent has knocked on doors of others.

Ed002 cheers mate I meant hypothetically. Is Real’s first choice Mbappe by any chance?

{Ed002's Note - That is very much the plan.}

So psg will need a replacement for neymar and mbappe next summer salah may fit the bill.

Two years ago I would have cried if we sold salah. Last summer I'd have been really gutted. But now I don't know. He IS greedy and I noticed him hardly getting the ball in the first half against Sheffield. Hendo played him the odd ball but not much apart from that. I thought we looked more dangerous in the second half and salah got on the ball more.

I'd defo, definitely rather have 2 mane's than 2 salah's. I think mane is the better all round footballer. And I'd rather have a team player than mo salah. Liverpool best aspect in recent times has been our front 3. The way they play together. Salah is ruining it with selfish play. I've "done a mane" a few times already this season.

Thanks for the update, Ed02. Personally, I would love Chiesa cos he is someone I think can get it done with us having watched him play as he can play on either side and is a leftie, just like Salah. Also, he has great footballing genes. I watched his dad Enrico (ex-Fiorentina as well) play a lot in the 90's and he was a devastating forward who could play all three attacking positions. I remember his legendary partnership with Hernan Crespo at Parma where they quite a few trophies.
