Regardless of whether we need 3 or 33 players, we have to assume that anyone we go for who is first team ready (at least by our standards) will also be on the radar of the big clubs both in the EPL and across Europe... even if those clubs would only use them as squad players at best. Playing under Klopp is a nice carrot, but no better than Conte, Simeone, Zidane, Gaurdiola, Mourinho (arguable), Wenger (if he's still there), Pochettino, others. Wage potential and salary structure negotiations are not in our favour when we consider the rivals. We'll see if Edwards and co have learned any lessons about closing out a deal when there's serious competition... I'm remaining optimistic. Transfer price shouldn't hold us back too much. We're capable of paying a £30m+ fee and the players we'll be looking at aren't the Pogbas or Griezmans of this world. The main thing we can control is ECL qualification. We absolutely must get top 4 this season.
