Iliax Moriba £9m rising to £12m with add ins
Only 18yrs old and probably not 1st team yet, but definitely a Klopp type signing for the future.
Eds002 you heard about Liverpool signing this lad?

{Ed002's Note - No. Barcelona have held talks with another side.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Aug 2021 09:30:03
heading to Chelsea apparently.

20 Aug 2021 09:33:03
Building some squad Chelsea! got to have best in the league currently.

20 Aug 2021 10:13:16
Shame we didn’t go for him. Looks quality. But we’ve no money, whilst watching Arsenal without any success or CL football manage to splash £100m plus so far this summer. Looking forward to the FSG spin.

20 Aug 2021 10:17:15
Chelsea still not better squad than LFC and LFC coaching staff way ahead.

20 Aug 2021 11:05:22
Chelsea do not have the best squad at all. Their defence is decent, but mainly because they play 5, a good range of attackers but all good or decent, only really lukaku is top class at the moment for me, and I still have reservations about him.

20 Aug 2021 11:15:41
TG, Chelsea definitely have better and bigger squad depth for forward positions. Liverpool’s front 3 probs better than Chelsea’s but their bench options will likely be Pulisic, Werner and Ziyech on Sunday, whilst Liverpool’s will be Origi, Mina, Shaq.

{Ed002's Note - No Pulisic on Sunday.}

20 Aug 2021 12:16:58
I'd take Shaq over Werner and Ziyech to be honest.

{Ed077's Note - I wouldnt though :-D}

20 Aug 2021 12:22:58
Arsenal have about 300 million dollars worth of gaps to fill in their squad. I had to read that a couple of times to make sure I was reading clearly that their spending on players who would be squad players at best in our squad is being used as some kind of ammunition against FSG. my head is hurting.

20 Aug 2021 12:47:57
More the fact we keep being told we’ve no money but we need depth, a couple players. Champions always improve never stand still. Finished top four, CL winners, League winners. Watching a team without European football haven’t won a thing for years and no money cause of new stadium yet they can splash £120m in a window after C.V.. We’ve not spent £5m yet this window but expect to compete.

20 Aug 2021 12:56:39
Good point about fairly average defenders looking better with the added security of a 5.Dont see the big hype about Chelsea this season. Most, if not all pundits fancy them over us this season. They'll look silly at seasons end.

20 Aug 2021 13:24:13
Our squad appears to be very strong right now, even without any additions. My only concern is age, and some players may start feeling the effects of father time this season. I don't think some fans out there though appreciate how difficult it is to integrate new talent into a system either. Just because you add a sparkling new player doesn't mean they're going to hit the ground running at all, and this is especially the case if you're talking about players who come from outside of England to the PL. Also, Klopp has never been one to rotate much either (which I'm not a fan of) so I'm not sure you can look at the squad and say this isn't a squad he would want. It fits the mold and is seemingly still strong. As it currently stands, I'm not sure there are enough minutes to go around to keep everyone happy either.

20 Aug 2021 13:39:42
Besides Milner the oldest outfield player is 30/ 31?These are prime years for a footballer, a lot of our squad are at the absolute peak age-wise.

{Ed002's Note - He is 35.}

20 Aug 2021 13:49:01
Fuses that is such a biased post. What about Firmino or Jota? Within 12 months Elliot will be a better player that Ziyech.

20 Aug 2021 14:14:17
JH, I would agree that 30/ 31 are when guys hit their mental prime, but physically, I think they're at their best from 22 to 26. I think the sweet spot where you get both overlapping occurs around 27/ 28.

{Ed0666's Note - speak for youreself I think the seeet spot is mid 50’s

20 Aug 2021 14:17:49
VVD, Hendo, Thiago, Matip, and as mentioned, Milner, are all 30+. Mane and Firmino will both turn 30 this season. Salah turns 30 soon after the season ends. We have mentioned this a lot on here that we have a cluster of guys all aging out at the same time and balancing out the squad age-wise is a priority within Liverpool right now.

20 Aug 2021 14:53:43
@Grobs Tash, "We've not spent £5m yet this window" shows how clueless you are.

Last summers transfers plus Konate plus tonnes of contract extensions (which generally include signing bonuses for the players) .

20 Aug 2021 15:14:28
Trent, Joe, Konate, Tsimakas, Jota, Kelleher, Neco, Jones and Elliott all25 or under though. Players as fit as Salah and Mane will perform into their mid 30's these days.

20 Aug 2021 15:27:02
Markp how is it biased? Tbh I forgot one of Jota/ Firmino would be on the bench tbh. I wasn’t saying that Elliot won’t be better in 12 months either? Every man and his dog on this page has been braying about wanting to upgrade the forward options on the bench, but suddenly those options are better than Pulisic/ Ziyech etc can't really have it both ways.

{Ed001's Note - I don't get the Ziyech thing, he is not that good at all.}

20 Aug 2021 15:43:51
I disagree that 27/ 28 are a players prime years. Maybe 20 or 30 years ago that was true. But medical science, squad size, nutrition and sports science has come so far that many players can and have played longer as their bodies are much more protected. The likes of Fernandinho, Silva, Kompany, Modric, Iniesta, Xavi, Pirlo, Kroos, Lampard, Terry, Ronaldo, Ramos, Thiago Silva, Suarez, Drogba, Ibrahimovic, Ribery, Robben, Di Natale, Totti, Chiellini (etc) All played their best football somewhere between 30-35. Messi and Lewandowski at 34 and 33 are still light years ahead of every other forward in Europe.

20 Aug 2021 16:16:41
Going back to the OP, how many of these ex Barcelona teenagers actually leave and go on to be absolutely top class players, there are more Dani Pacheco’s out there than Cesc Fabregas’s, that’s for sure.

{Ed0666's Note - not quite sure fabregas was top class

20 Aug 2021 16:16:52
He did say this window in fairness Sean.

20 Aug 2021 16:31:30
See some are so desperate for a signing they'd be happy with Ramsdale and White. Shiny new toy syndrome.

{Ed0666's Note - I would rather have Sanchez with a torn miniscus than ramsdale, odengaad or white. This is buffoonery of Olympic gold medal standards and will see Arteta/Edu sacked by January.

20 Aug 2021 16:41:56
Agree Ed - baffles me how Arsenal has failed to address the obvious problem in their midfield. A Fabinho type character is what they need to provide some steel to allow the frontline to flourish.

{Ed0666's Note - I feel sorry for Martinelli, Saka, Rowe they will want out soon enough mate.

20 Aug 2021 16:42:40
His medal collection would say differently Ed. He has had a top class career which is fair to say.

Don’t fancy Arsenal’s chances much when they play Chelsea. Lukaku is going to swat White away like a fly. We’ve dodged a bullet there as he looks as weak as a kitten.

20 Aug 2021 17:50:21
Ed666. “Buffoonery of Olympic gold medal standards” made me spit out my drink whilst reading so thanks for that. 😂.

{Ed0666's Note - I aim to please fella. Have a super weekend mate

20 Aug 2021 18:09:54
Ed0666, I’ve already lumped on Arteta being the first to be sacked, they’ve got Chelsea and City in their next two games… I can’t see him lasting beyond the City game.

{Ed0666's Note - he’s lucky he got to play Brentford mate

20 Aug 2021 18:31:43
It’s funny to read some are saying that our players like Hendo, Thiago, Milner or even VVD are over or at 30 already and need to be replaced gradually. Then when I pop off to check City and can see KDB, Gündogan, Walker and a certain Fernandinho (as old as Milner) who are still stalwarts on their team and haven’t read anywhere that the City fans want them replaced anytime soon.

Funny to see that these same people lack the same energy to criticise Pep cos clearly, he is as daft as Klopp for placing his confidence on these same players. I just find that absolutely baffling.

20 Aug 2021 18:38:35
Ed001, I don’t rate Ziyech particularly highly, it was more just to point out the irony that Liverpool need to upgrade their bench options but those bench options are also (barring City) apparently the best in the league.

{Ed001's Note - ok got you sorry.}

20 Aug 2021 18:38:51
And Mahrez.

20 Aug 2021 19:26:22
Finished 3rd last year after being down to our 7th choice centre half and a loan signing, midfield obliterated.
2 seasons before that we overcame a 3 goal deficit against the most feared attack in Europe with a makeshift front 3.
You can't sign character, this squad just has it, believe.
No more panic buys, let's stick to the policy that got us here.

20 Aug 2021 20:45:46
Totally agree with that.

We have lost Lovrenand Wijnaldum and we have gained Tsimikas, Konate, Thiago and Jota. We have also seen the emergence of Jones and Williams (if only people would get off their backs) and Elliot and perhaps, just perhaps Gordon.

The squad has experience and knows how to win.

As you say ‘let’s stick to the policy that got us here’.

21 Aug 2021 01:07:53
I honestly keep waiting for Kroenke to say he's hoping to win the draft lottery for Arsenal to build a team around a top pick.

{Ed0666's Note - or sign a good player
