Hi Ed’s, been reading lots suggesting that we’re making a move for Mohammed Kudus or Johan Bakayoko are these the RW targets?

{Ed002's Note - Mohammed Kudus (AM) West Ham are not looking to sell - perhaps in the summer of 2025 if a significant offer is made matching his release clause which then comes into effect.

Johan Bakayoko (RW) Cost effective solution for PSG but may stuggle to be a starter. Liverpool have him down the list of potential Salah replacements but have not made any approach to PSV. Borussia Dortmund see him as an option to Sancho. Spurs and Brentford offer realistic options. Chelsea and Manchester City have sent scouts but both have preferred options.}

Ed, do you have any information about how big is Kudus' release clause?

{Ed002's Note - Yes but that is for 2025, not now.}

Ed002 I know you have responded before but can’t find it via the search function and it may now be an updated list of names, but who are Liverpool actively looking at to replace the inevitable Salah departure?
Surely not Sane still as that was Klopp who had the hots was it?

Cheers Ed, much appreciated.

I’d hope we avoid Sane, Edwards, Neto and Chiesa.

Thanks Ed002
Sane is not the answer, Edward’s nowhere near good enough for the reds, Bakayoko could be good but is unproven at this level and I struggle to think of any others that would be a good fit?
Who in your own opinion would be a good option to fill Salah right sided role?
I would possibly look at more of an out and out striker and have less focus on the need for our wide players to provide high goal returns each season.
What strikers would you personally suggest could be possible decent options 002?

{Ed002's Note - Edwards is a very well liked player. Kubo might be a risk and may take time to settle. I am not aware of Liverpool looking for an out and out striker.}

Hi Ed, I searched in the dare search option for the 25 April rumours but it says that option is not available and gives me a multiple choice option from 21 Apr to 24 April, I assume I'm doing something wrong, any help would be appreciated.

{Ed033's Note - The rumours archives weren't caught up to 25 April 2024 but they are now. This page is the 25 April 2024 Rumours Archives

I think we might give Elliott and Szoboszlai opportunities on the right side of the attack. I don't know how Slot utilises his wide men but if they're coming from deep and creating, that could work. If he likes goal scoring wingers who will run in behind the defence then we'll have to dip into the market. I don't think we can replace Salah like for like though. The only player in Europe who can without a massive drop off is Saka and even he is levels below right now. So it's either adapt to play slightly differently as a team or bring in a pale imitation and make ourselves weaker as a team.

Salah is the greatest winger in Premier league history. You simply don't get players who pump out 20 goals and 10 assists (minimum) for 7 years straight. It never happened before and it'll be a long time before it happens again. He's absolutely in the same conversation as Kane, Lewandowski, Benzema, Suarez etc. He never matched Messi or Ronaldo, but he was in that next bracket without a doubt. We as fans have got to appreciate how lucky we've been and accept that players like Salah don't come around that often. We were blessed to have Suarez and Salah in the same decade, undeniably 2 of the top 10 forwards of their era. Slot's got a job on his hands to restructure our attack because we likely can't look to one player for a guaranteed 30-60 goals involvements a season going forward. Arsenal are showing you can compete without that though. And City used to beat us to the league pre-Haaland with goals spread around the team. It can be done.

Ed33, sorry for the late reply but thank you for the help in finding the page ?.

{Ed033's Note - ok, thanks.

@Plovdiv, I heard a rumour that his release clause is quite big - about seven or eight pages long.
