The Konate rumours gathering pace, I'd be happy with that, always like to get our business done early.

Think Matip could leave, possibly Phillips too but would leave us well stocked at cb with Konate the starter with VVD and Gomez and Kabak to rotate and back up as necessary.

What other signings, if any, would you like? I personally would like another attacker/ striker to rotate but on the left maybe as we do not want to hinder Harvey Elliotts progress.

Midfield I think we are well enough stocked with Hendo, Fan and Thiago starting with Jones, Milner, Ox and Keita rotating.

Thoughts?

I agree Bill.

Being realistic, we could do with a few more places like LB if Tsimikas is deemed a mistake.

But if much rather us spend all our budget in 2 quality additions a CB and ST.

If Konate is that CB, Alexander Isak would be my choice of striker. If money was no object (which it is), I think Lauturo Martinez could be a good firmino replacement. Haaland if we wanted to go in a different direction.

If we are talking what would be nice to have next year, signing Konate, Jonathan David or Leon Bailey would be fantastic prob massively unrealistic

GK - Alisson, Kelleher, Pitaluga
Rb - TAA, Neco
CB - VVD, Gomez, Konate, Kabak, Davies
LB - Robbo, Tsimikas
CM - Fabs, Hendo, Thiago, Jones, Ox, Keita, Grujic
Forwards - Salah, Bobby, Mane, Jota, Taki, David or Bailey

Players to be sold
Adrian, Gini, Shaq, Origi, Phillips, Matip, Milly, Ojo, Wilson, Karius, Awoniyi, Millar, Lewis, Arroyo, Woodburn

Players to be loaned
Rhys, Sepp, Elliot

David or Bailey would be fantastic additions to the squad maybe leaning towards bailey more since he can play across the entire front line as would Konate be if he is over his injury's, I feel Elliot should be loaned for one more year playing in the premier league.

Defence as per above, sell Matip + 1 of Phillips or Davies, buy Kabak and Konate. Konate can also cover at RB (as can Fabs) so that maybe frees up Neco Williams for a season long loan, along with the young CBs.

I would look to someone like Bissouma in midfield as we don't really have a rotation/ cover option for Fabs as our other midfielders are more CM or CAM types. I would sell Ox, Keita (take the loss) and Shaq. Jones is our Wiji replacement and would provide plenty of options with Hendo, Bissouma, Fabs, Milner and Thiago.

Up front, I would sell Mane and possibly Firmino too. I would go all out for Mbappe and look to a young striker who fits our system (scorer, but also hardworking and creator) for the £20m-£30mish mark - I see we have been linked with players like Malen recently who would fit the bill.

We would then have Salah (tied down to a new contract in the next few months, hopefully), Mbappe, new striker and Jota to choose from. I would also be tempted to keep Elliot and give him a dozen or so games (mainly cups) with some sub appearances too. If Minamino has adjusted, I would have him back too.

Looking at our current squad, I would look to sell the following players:

Matip + Phillips/ Davies - c£20m
Ox - c£15m
Keita - c£20m
Shaq - c£15m
Grujic - c£15m
Woodburn - c£8m
Origi - c£15m
Mane - c£100m
Firmino - c£50m
Ojo - c£5m

Those figures will no doubt be out (up or down), but we've got around £250-£260m from sales right there.

We have c£50m to spend on our defence (Kabak and Konate), around £25m on Bissouma for midfield, I think we could get Mbappe for around £150m given his contract situation, plus around £30m on another forward/ striker.

Not far different from our potential sales (excl agents fees, VAT etc) .

That would be a perfect summer for me!

Got to say I disagree kloppers, I watch a lot of European football and Bailey always flatters to deceive. Electric player but only has a handful of good games a season. David has just moved to rennes and flattered to deceive in his first season, so I think we should wait on him too. Would much rather see us go after other players. All opinion though and that’s what make this page interesting.

David plays for Lille bud, not to sure if your getting him mixed up with Doku at Rennes, 30 games 9 goals 2 assists in his first season with Lille is pretty decent.

{Ed077's Note - David did struggle during the first half of the season and has only found form after Christmas.

Totally Agree Ed077 but I would give him the benefit of the doubt moving to a new club and adapting to a different style of play, looks to be a talent!

Getting understudies for Robbo and Trent is extremely difficult. I think years ago full back was deemed one of the least important positions on the pitch (still is for a lot of teams) but with the way Klopp plays and Robbo and Trent in there it’s one of our most important. You take one of them out and it actually nullifies the other as it’s a lot easier for opposition to defend one side of the pitch if the other isn’t as much of a threat. That’s why we hardly see either taken out of the firing line and both play more or less every minute when fit.

I think it would be neon impossible to find players of the calibre of both to understudy. If we had 2 defensive full backs in reserve then it would allow us to probably be more adventurous with our midfield and attacking line up then thus giving us a plan B or formation change if needed in games where we are having no joy. Because I’m sure the likes of Burnley, Brighton, Fulham etc love it when our attacking full backs are pushed forward pumping balls into the box whilst Mo and Mane are in the box against 6 defenders and Bobby and the midfield are sat deep covering the full backs.
