Yeah, fair point, we have Ox's return to consider, also Lallana. I think there's a fair bit of life in him yet. You would think there's A LOT more to come from Naby.I think Klopp gives Oxlade a chance to prove his fitness before he’d go for someone like Rabiot.
We play either 4231 or 433 pretty much, ignoring the front 3 we have spots for 2 or 3 midfielders per game.
No.6 - Henderson or Fabinho (no upgraded required here)
No.8 - Gini or Keita (no upgrade required here)
No.10 (or 2nd no.8) - Firmino or Shaqiri or Oxlade (no upgrade needed)
Add to that the likes of Lallana and Milner we have excellent depth. If Oxlade wasn’t to recover then yes we need another body, but ultimately I think we either need someone who can play instead of Firmino or alongside him or another wide forward to rotate with Mane/Salah.
So, maybe Rabiot isn't needed.
But you didn't mention Milner. With all the games he plays, if he leaves he needs to be replaced doesn't he? Will he go to Leeds? If yes, do we replace him with the players we already have? We also have the potential return of Wilson and what about Grujic? Maybe Rabiot isn't needed and I'm talking bollocks
