Ed002, you've explained a number of times about interest in Traore and Bowen for the forward positions, but do you know any interest in strikers/ no. 9's to compete with Bobby?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool need to sell if they are going to buy as they have huge debts that need to be serviced and plan on doing additional work on the stadium. Regrdless they do have an interest in Karim Adeyemi (S) Interest from several sides who have been watching including Barcelona and Liverpool but will not be sold in January. Bayern Munich were told Adeyemi is not for sale and his agent says eventually a move to RBL is planned and I would expect him to be playing in Germany next season. However, Bayern Munich will look to early discussions to try and strike a deal for next summer or just possibly 2023. Juventus offer an option in Italy and Sevilla do in Spain. RBS will continue to resist an early sale but will be will open to an auction next summer. I would not rule out an offer from Borussia Dortmund.}

Thanks Ed, any other strikers than Adeyemi? Sounds like he's very unlikely to join.

{Ed002's Note - Not out and out strikers that I am aware of but the club continue to look at more versatile players like Traore.}

The word Traore is usually a trigger for mass hate/ hysteria on this site Ed please use it wisely (or were you hoping for a few bites? )

Traore is versatile in the respect he can play in multiple positions and be completely ineffective in all of them.

I don't get the Traore hate. He's extremely athletic and strong, and also has decent skill. If the price is right, I am interested to see what he can become playing for a manager like Klopp and a club that does a good job of drilling players into great, consistent form. . Or maybe this will indeed play out like real life is Football Manager, and be a disaster. Who knows.

Me neither buddy, I'd support anyone if they pooped the jersey on. He tore city a new backside in a couple of games a few years ago. He attracts at least 2 or 3 opposing players so will create space for others and with some coaching could be a great signing.

mftonjes he literally doesn’t create or score goals, he is the footballing equivalent of a pub with no beer.

His only attribute is his physical strength and pace. He can’t pass, his crossing is awful and his shooting is non existent and his decision making is terrible, if they couldn’t train that into him at La Masia (widely regarded as the finest place in Europe for developing technique in young footballers), then no one can at his age, he’s as good as he’s ever going to be, which is somewhere less than mediocre. We’d be just as well flushing the money down the bog.

And considering we don’t have much money, we can’t afford a mistake like Traore. It’s not hate, it’s just criticism of a player who simply isn’t good enough to play for a team competing at the top.

{Ed014's Note - I make you spot on in your summation mate! 👍🏼

VVVV, I cringe at the thought of him being a guy we rely heavily on ("Salah replacement" OMG), but having him coming in for 25-30M as a squad player (Origi replacement perhaps) intrigues me. If he's just impossible to teach, then I'm not interested, but I haven't heard any credible rumblings on that at all. There just seems to be such a high ceiling for him in our squad, finally getting the chance to play for a creative coaching staff as an adult pro. He has the potential to be unmarkable, and that could be a great option in the right hands. We just seem to do really well with guys who have question marks following them around. I'd love to know what our research team thinks of him.
