Hi Ed,


Are we interested in signing otavio from Porto.

The news all over internet is the deal is immenent.

Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Otavio (AM) Otavio was running down his contract and attracting the interest of Leicester and Roma - but that would have gone with him signing a new contract in March and a new €60M buy out clause kicking in on July 1. Klopp has admitted that he likes the player and Liverpool scouts had looked at him when checking out Grujic. A Shaqiri/Minamino replacement rather than a Wijnaldum replacement if Liverpool can find the cash. Liverpool would need to persuade him he will get game time.}

does any poster on here know anything about him? is he want we need going forward etc?

28 Jun 2021 14:04:25
No doubt someone will claim to have watched him since he was U9.

28 Jun 2021 14:32:43
He was a great dribbler at his christening ;-)

28 Jun 2021 14:36:19
Seems like a lot of money for a Shaq or Minamino replacement. It is not like they played a lot of minutes for us last year. Would rather the 60m be spent on a starter.

{Ed002's Note - Replacing who?}

28 Jun 2021 14:49:09
Ed002, I'd imagine Jordz means a starter replacing Wijnaldum who played so many games for us last season.

{Ed002's Note - Perhaps a chance will be given to Curtis Jones to stake his claim?}

28 Jun 2021 14:52:56
Thanks Ed for the reply.

28 Jun 2021 14:55:29
His card on fifa is pretty good. definitely should sign him because of that, ED02 is right who you wanting to replace in the team?

{Ed002's Note - One issue that is again not being addressed is the Home Grown/Club Developed ratio.}

28 Jun 2021 16:21:29
No problem with Jones being used to fill the spot that Wij has left.

With the club already having a tight budget I just don't see the sense in spending 50/ 60 mill euros on a player to replace someone that is essentially a squad player. I'd expect someone of that fee to be a starter.

28 Jun 2021 16:54:23
Is Salah going to be offered a new contract? If not he need's selling ASAP . If Shaq, Origi and Minamino are going to be sold, then of course we need a replacement rotation player.

{Ed002's Note - There is no need to give him a new contract. Haervey Elliot can be used.

28 Jun 2021 17:08:19
It's a tricky call. We have midifielders who are nearer the end of their career than the start - Milner, Henderson and even the Ox (if he stays) . I suspect that buying an 'expensive' midfielder - €40-€50m - would probably mean that Naby is leaving. Not for that sort of fee (duh! ) but a relatively decent fee.

I don't doubt that Jones is seen as a part of the future midfield, but we don't seem to have anyone else who could form part of Klopp's next first 11. So rumours like this make sense to me.

Whether its Gravenberch or Neuhaus or Bissouma or someone else, I can see them coming this window. Just my view though, I'm as far from ITK as you can get!

28 Jun 2021 19:09:47
I agree Zed we definitely need a midfielder, if we don’t sign one at some point in the season we will be caught short.

28 Jun 2021 21:13:40
You’re not wrong Mark, If we lose both Fabinho and Henderson for any period of time we’re in trouble as was shown last season, the remaining options aren’t good enough to compete.

29 Jun 2021 01:39:07
I'm not sure on on Jones, young so plenty of time to develop but not sure he's the answer yet. We need a 15 goal a season jobby.

29 Jun 2021 15:20:43
Marty we haven't had a 15 goal midfielder for years, Jones need his chance, he looks forward and we have missed that, boring side to side isn't for us.

29 Jun 2021 20:06:50
Thats why we need one mate but happy for jones to get a chance.

30 Jun 2021 07:12:03
We need a goal scoring midfielder. We don’t have that and Gini never provided that. Jones won’t provide that and Shaq and Minimino will likely leave. Bring Coutinho back.

30 Jun 2021 08:47:38
Ed why no reason to give Mo a new contract when he is down to his last 2 years? I thought it started becoming risky at this stage?

{Ed002's Note - He is 30 and no longer the future of the club. Why would the club commit to paying him further when they need to be looking to the next generation.}

30 Jun 2021 12:14:42
I hear that but surely then its time to sell, rather than letting him leave for free? . He won't get another big contract if he waits 2 years, so now is the time?

30 Jun 2021 15:52:02
Klopp is over 5 years here. In his time here when have the club had a "goal scoring midfielder"?

01 Jul 2021 01:57:34
There is no reason why Jones can’t go on to become a good goal scoring midfielder. He gets in the right positions so with a little more experience he should get goals.

But I agree for next season he can’t be expected to perform the job at a top quality midfielder.

Embolo is a beast, if he had an end product he’d be dangerous.
