A bit more noise in the press today, Tsimikas to Inter? Brighton identified a replacement for Bissouma possibly paving the way for a move to Liverpool?

Now that full stadiums has been confirmed, wouldn’t be surprised to see FSG borrow against the confirmation of that income stream now!

If we sign Bissouma I'll be over the moon. Excellent player with an exemplary injury record. An upgrade on Wijnaldum and also very versatile in that he can play almost anywhere in the midfield.

I pray to the football gods!

06 Jul 2021 11:23:04
buying players proven in this league who also have exemplary injury records is the way forward, not the Renato Sanches route, please.

06 Jul 2021 11:41:12
An upgrade on Gini? Bissouma has had a good year. Gini was excellent for us, the consommate professional. Obviously something happened and the last few months he was probably holding a little back and protecting himself. Imo we won't sign a player or haven't been linked to a midfielder as good as him!

06 Jul 2021 11:46:17
Bissouma would be the far most sensible choice, he looks a quality player, disciplined, hard working, can play as a holding midfielder or box to box, good passer, quick, physically in good condition.

06 Jul 2021 12:22:14
I'm guessing Bissouma is plan A and Sanches is Plan B.

06 Jul 2021 12:36:18
Think eds2 said Arsenal are interested in Bissouma as well!

{Ed077's Note - indeed they are.

06 Jul 2021 13:04:00
Id like to think LFC would have the upper hand over Arsenal on a footballing basis however agents, money, teammates and of course the twinkling lights in London could be a factor in his decision.

Great player though, some engine on him!

{Ed014's Note - ahh the good old twinkling lights of London, that and we’ll likely offer him more money.

Would love him but god knows where he’ll end up, I didn’t think he was our first choice but what do I know🤷‍♂️

06 Jul 2021 13:31:52
He's more than likely heading to arsenal so.

06 Jul 2021 13:32:35
I think he is a big Arsenal fan though. Stenova, come on man Gini wasn’t excellent, he was good but far from one of our main players. I not sure he would have got in the first 11 if everyone was fit.

06 Jul 2021 14:44:47
Eds…. Will Arsenals pursuit/ purchase of Albert Sambi Lokonga mean their interest in Bissouma fades?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

06 Jul 2021 14:59:57
We’ve got Gini cover. Jones can step up etc.
It’s Firmino we need to be worried about. Jota covers mane and Salah but Divock isn’t good enough for how much Bobby is struggling most weeks.
We’ve Got to be looking at a Center forward before yet another midfielder surely.

06 Jul 2021 15:13:35
Liverpoolfc8, I’m not convinced by our midfield options once we get past Henderson and Fabinho. If we put out any three from Keita, Thiago, Milner, Ox or Curtis we’d get beaten. Keita needs to be moved on as he’s injury prone, ineffective and lazy, Ox and Milner aren’t really centre midfielders (Milner is looking his years now too and Ox is far too injury prone to rely upon ) and Curtis is very inexperienced and it does show, he holds on to the ball too long, his decision making is naive and he’s not the still tactically very raw. I agree that the back up to Firmino needs looking at, but I do also think we need a centre midfielder as that’s fundamentally a critical part of Klopp’s formation and tactics.

Remember how awful we played when our midfield was stripped of Henderson and Fabinho last season.

{Ed0666's Note - we need a midfielder period.

06 Jul 2021 15:23:42
Pesky Arsenal always sticking their noses in😃.

{Ed0666's Note - if he signs for arsenal than good luck to him we haven’t got the monopoly on all players

06 Jul 2021 15:56:20
VVVV I agree. But we’ve got to get rid of some of those players you mention if we’re not going to use them.
The one thing about Gini is he was Never ever injured. And we will miss that. But I’d get shot of Keita and Ox before bringing in yet another one, we’re not even linked with anyone that special tbh. McGinn, Bissouma, Sanchez.
Are they that much of an upgrade on Thiago Gini? I’m not so sure mate.

06 Jul 2021 15:56:17
Yes Ed14 unfortunately there are a few players that pick the lovely lights and lifestyle as a key in there decision making.

Ed666 I agree we need a mid a good box to box style who can chip in with some goals would be nice. Bissouma appears to fit that mould. I did like the idea of a new house though ;-)

Hope you are all well!

06 Jul 2021 16:31:42
Ok its seems only me who doesn't see what others on here see in bissouma.
Of all the players mentioned my personal opinion is
1) he suits our system least atleast technically. The free midfielder in our 3 is going to be thiago.
2) does not score enough which is an actual problem from us.

06 Jul 2021 17:08:35
Gini is gone. The real loss is his ever availability and reliability. He is always a 6-7 in terms of rating. Not brilliant, but usually acceptable.

Keita and Ox can't provide that.
Jones has some way to go.

No point getting someone not ready to start as that should be Jones' role.
So it comes down to this, are we able to rely Ox or Keita.
If not, sell 1 and get an upgrade.

Someone at least reliable.
Ability to chip in with goals would be ideal.

Otherwise, we can always play a 3-4-3, with TAA in midfield.

06 Jul 2021 17:15:04
Unless the system is changing, we don't prioritise goals from MF.
Biss is ready made potential, proven in this league. He is no doubt hungry (unlike Naby) and will give the peripheral players a kick up the backside-Then we'll see who has the minerals and who needs flogging.
Biss makes sense on many levels, regardless of the level you might have seen at Brighton. Yes they see that but they also have a better idea of his potential/ ceiling and i imagine that is pretty high.
JK has a masterful way of getting the most out of all players imo .

06 Jul 2021 17:16:44
Insigne Linked again. Apparently one of JK's favourite players . He is so good, although im not sure how well he'd travel.

06 Jul 2021 17:23:55
3-4-3 with Trent in midfield? So we drop Robbo? Or is Robbo playing left side of the 4?

06 Jul 2021 18:23:15
Bissouma can choose to win things or at least be in with a chance or he could join arsenal 🤣.

06 Jul 2021 19:02:10
I was being sarcastic Ed0666.

{Ed0666's Note - and I thought I needed to work on my banter 😂

06 Jul 2021 22:06:49
I thought that the word"Pesky"may have given it away Ed. I suppose that's what I get for watching too much Scooby-Doo🐶.
