Jota to be announced tomorrow.

Agree11 Disagree0

18 Sep 2020 17:38:54
Some sources are saying they want it finalised tonight.

18 Sep 2020 18:03:21
Where is the money coming from? If we couldn’t afford Werner why can we suddenly spend $25m on Thiago, $35m on Jota and apparently $45m on Sarr? What’s changed?

18 Sep 2020 18:21:20
Let's hope Jota puts pen to paper.

18 Sep 2020 18:21:30
I would say Sarr would only happen if a Salah or Mané were to go. Pointless having 3 players going to AFCON. Jota makes more sense if Brewster and Origi are to leave.

18 Sep 2020 18:24:31
Maybe we are about to sell someone/ some players. Hopefully not from the first XI.

18 Sep 2020 18:24:36
The overall package and consequences of signing Werner alone would have cost more than both these transfers.

You pay 50 mil transfer, 220+k per week. For a potentially non starter. Then the likes of Mane, Bobby, Salah, Virg, Allison etc all quite rightfully march in and ask why they don't get paid that and would like to negotiate. The harmony in the team is lost and the financial budget is up the swanny.

18 Sep 2020 18:26:10
the finishing of firmino playing leeds. (and probable outgoings)

18 Sep 2020 18:26:40
Its 5 mill for thiago for 4 yrs. So that's nothing. The other 5 is add ons.

18 Sep 2020 18:27:13
I think it’s because we couldn’t pay a significant amount up front for Werner, whereas Chelsea were in a position to do it because of a combination of having received large transfer fees and not having been able to previously spend it. These deals are probably based on a spreading out of the fees I’d imagine.

18 Sep 2020 18:27:23
We don't spend on both Jota and Sarr. You also have to keep in mind that the figure you mention is only the one known to the puplic eye. Werner weren't only €45 mill. I think sales have been sorted behind the scenes. Tsimikas, Thiago and Jota will make a brilliant window. My only concern is that the cb haven't been addressed as one of the priorities - And I don't think repositioning Fabinho, one of the best DMs around. Just saw a rumour about Kabak again, but I assume we are more than done after Jota, if not before.

18 Sep 2020 18:31:27
We didn't want werner.

18 Sep 2020 18:32:55
Mane is going to barcelona.

18 Sep 2020 18:33:15
I don't understand how he fits into the team? Anyone enlighten me?

18 Sep 2020 18:35:55
Nulty - I imagine wages are playing a big factor.

18 Sep 2020 18:36:30
Sarr ain't coming. Werner refused to wait. Klopp: "It's about timing. " So c'est la vie. Don't worry about the money, that's being taken care of.

18 Sep 2020 18:37:36
Not sure his what we need tbh. no doubt he can finish but where n when is he going to play ?

18 Sep 2020 18:37:46
I think something did. Klopp who wanted to leave football suddenly is open to extending his stay with us. something must have been done by fsg. how dare they. fsg out.

18 Sep 2020 18:43:44
Barcelona is struggling to pay £30m for Depay so I very much doubt they could afford Mane this year.

18 Sep 2020 18:50:33
Successful Dribbles per 90
Jota - 2.6
Keita - 2.5
Mane - 2.3
Firmino - 1.6
Salah - 1.6

35m would be at least 50m pre-C.V.. This ain't no "backup".

18 Sep 2020 18:55:03
I'm guessing its an either or for jota or sarr I can't see us getting both.

Jota is versatile and can play across the front three i think. If we sell them hoever and get jota the other way. We have effectively bought him for 25m. Personally I'd prefer jota to sarr and at a similar price I think its a good deal.

Outgoings must be lined up though possibly origi may have a suitor or shaq. Think its going to be busy over the next week.

18 Sep 2020 20:11:35
Jota is a quality player. well pleased if this happens. Give firminio much needed competition.

18 Sep 2020 20:18:18
I have a suspicion Firmino could be off.
Miniamo, Thiago and Dota can all play across front three.

18 Sep 2020 21:15:19
@Rax - Firmino will not be leaving.

18 Sep 2020 22:14:38
And thiago can't play up front.

18 Sep 2020 20:37:39
I don’t get this panic over a first team player leaving. ‘Oh he would expect to be a starter’ at Wolves maybe but not liverpool. A team fighting for all trophies. He’s 23?! How about he’s coming in to transition into the team ahead of a future potential sale of mane / salah

The cash issue too. Yes we have a lot of cash outgoings this year but a massive new Secured loan facility unused that we could draw on. Perhaps we saw the signings around us and decided to tap into some of those funds to strengthen the team. Hell FSG are all about buying low and selling high so why would they allow us to drift away from our current position.

Ffp not an issue given past years performance and cash and profit are 2 completely different thing.

Would like to hear your view on this Ed002 please. Change of tact maybe from fsg? Adding a bit more external debt.

18 Sep 2020 22:53:05
Jota is an addition not a replacement. I feel that this would be the end of the incomings. Sarr will not be this window. Maybe next as a replacement for either Salah or Mane.

19 Sep 2020 03:30:06
That's a statement from OP that asks why we are 100+mill for 3 signings when we had no apparent money yet only 2 of those will happen. What make a you think that sarr will arrive also for 40 mill when jota is obviously the one player we added for attacking roles and no suggestion we fork out big money for another. Thiago will cost us 5mil this year and jota too only a percentage of that fee announced so it's likely we don't pay much more than 20mil for both this season which answers your question. We are not suddenly splashing 110mil now out of thin air when 1 of those players isn't even going to happen anyway despite you seeming to think we're guaranteed to pay 40million.

18 Sep 2020 18:02:10
Upwards of £35mil being reported. Are we to assume a few players have some decent offers on the table in the background Ed’s?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool are working very hard to move players on.}
