I haven’t personally seen Kelly, just going on the name floating around, and the fact that he’s young, home grown, can cover lb and central defence, and won’t expect to play much yet, which gives time for him to improve under our coaching, and also gives time for the current defensive permutations to work themselves out a bit. But if he’s not all that, I’m not sold on him per se, but we do need lb cover.That Lloyd Kelly guy's stats seem not impressive. He was not even a regular starter at Championship.
Sessegnon is fantastic but Tottenham seems to have won the race for him.
Brandt is obvious, I don't think Klopp will miss this target.
The price I saw recently for Sessegnon seemed very low, so I’ll be surprised if he’s under £30M.
We’re in a good spot - we don’t need a massive overhaul, and we are a very desirable destination for people who want to contest at the sharp end of the Prem and CL. Our recruitment team has been doing well too, so I can’t wait to see what we do.
I’m thinking three signings, two for the so called first team (but obviously we don’t have a first XI) and one, maybe two to grow.
