whats he inside on sessengnon?

i dont watch a lot of external to the club football, but i would have assumed he would have ticked a hell of a lot of boxes, from a logical point of view.

I'm usually quite a fan of flexible players who can play in multiple positions, but I've seen quite a few suggestions (other places also) of finding a left-sided player who can cover both Mane and Robbo (Sessegnon). This I'm not a fan of. I'd much rather a forward who can play any of the front 3 AND a specialist left back. We have no proper cover for either position so I wouldn't risk a hybrid signing having half the effectiveness of Mane or Robbo. It could turn out to be a similar problem to Moreno - no one trusts him at LB but he obviously is not a forward either.

What about Max Aaron at Norwich. The young RB can play at LB aswell. Perfect for the bench and rotation,covering both sides?

I read he'd set his heart on going to Spurs, and even when he was brought up as a target last year that was reportedly the case as well. Not sure why, unless he wants to remain in London primarily.

Wants to stay close to his parents. Can't blame him there

I've slightly changed my view on things; firstly i thought we'd sell off between 60+80 mill of deadwood and then buy 2 x 40/50 mill players and one backup left back, so spend about 120 +

I don't think we will buy the second 40/50 million player. Initially i thought we'd go for a forward @ 40/50 + a ball playing mid @40/50 or a CB. Now i've decided it'll be a forward we spend that money on + our midfield won't be touched. Fabinho + Keita were big investments in there last summer, and we also spent big at CB + GK last year so for me, it'll be really focused going forward.

40/50 on a forward. 10-20 on a deputy LB, maybe Lewis i've heard mentioned + then if Lovren goes a younger defender around 20/30 million.

So in total if going for the highest amounts, i reckon:

Spend 100mill
Sales (won't go highest as they won't all work out) 70mill.

Net spend 30mill- The net spend boys will be pleased again!

I'll post this here as it's where the De Ligt discussion has been happening for the most part.

He's been offered a £340k p/w deal by PSG, transfer fee of around £65m:


I think the wages kills this one for us. I actually could see us paying that fee for a player with potential but who could be world-class in 2-3 years, when we've got so much sitting in the bank right now. But there's no way we're breaking our pay structure for said player.

The Qataris must have missed his last couple of games for the Netherlands.

I'm being a bit disingenuous tbf, but it's still absurd money to be paying a teenager barely out of puberty...even in the current transfer climate.

Diaz looked a solid prospect in the finale

I don’t think we’re in for him, but he’d be a fool to go to PSG. There is absolutely no growth for him there, in a one team league where they will be completely untested in the majority of fixtures.

I look at it this way...

We are losing

Migs
Clyne (permanently)
Moreno
Lovren (possible)
Lallana (possible)
Sturridge
Ings (permanently)
Kent (possibly)
Wilson (possibly)

For me I’d be looking for
Migs ...10-15 millions
Clyne 15 million
Lovren - 25 million
Lallana 15-20 million
Ings - 10 million
Kent 10 million
Wilson 15-20million
Camacho 10

So worse case scenario there that’s 100-110 million

You’d have to buy a keeper so I’d go get someone like Butland from stoke or Pope from Burnley 15-20 million.... might even be tempted with a Buffon or a Casillas.

I’m not massively concerned with RB as Trent and Gomez can play there, as well as Fabinho or Milner and i’d even
Promote Hoever from the academy at his young age.

We’d need a centre back so i’d go get De Ligt for 60-70million and that sorts that out.

I’d get Maddison from Leicester for again probably 45-60 million and that your Lallana replacement.

Brewster fills the void left by Sturridge and I’d either go get Felix, Bruno Fernandes or Pepe in attacking midfield / front 3. Cost there is likely to be 65-75million.

So there’s 225 million there with aprox 115 million from the war chest and 110 million from player sales.

Sorry meant to say Lloyd from the academy comes into first team to cover for robbo (and Milner) no need for Sessegnon imo

Also may have underestimated the fee due for clyne and Ings

Next year once they are back in the championship after a full year in the premier league makes more sense. Hes not going to go from playing every week in the premier league to warming the bench.

Not sure. Let's say he becomes a good CB instead of a great one, or he does his knee in. Will he ever get a chance to earn that much money again? No.

He will win the French league, get a run at the champions league year after year, and will be young enough to play somewhere else by the time he is 24/25. I know the French league is frowned on, but good lord. I disagree about the growth. If nothing else, there are a few good teams, and he will practice against good players each week. It will be more beneficial than sitting on Barca's bench or muddling about in mediocrity for United.

The atmosphere may not be the best at the club with players like Neymar on permanent vacations, but you have to trust a kid that was a captain of a champions league semi finalist at 19 years old.

Tbf at the beginning i got hope Klopp ll do at LFC the same as he did at Borussia. But the demands here don`t allow that much time to have in disposal . Anyway i d LOVE to see accademy Players stepping up instead of De Fuck Light whatsoever. The accademy Players hit the groung for us hopping one day they come to the first Team and not been a springboard to other Teams.t. I don t get that. First our Young Lads!! TAA and Gomes are the best examples we could get. I hope for the sake of our Young Lads Klopp ll back them more then until now.
p.s. as for the missis Team here is a Young miss with a big fancore and very talented as well :celebrating:

Isn't it beautiful to know whoever we sign will be just what we need? It's so damn good that we can just relax and trust Edwards and Klopp to bring in just the right players.

Outside shout, but Dani Ceballos was always linked to LFC, and i wonder with him having gone stale at Madrid, would we look to get him on the cheap? Would add something, and also offer us a potential new "Coutinho" type prospect/opportunity. Yes we probably have outgrown these deals normally, but Madrid need to clearout + we know we still follow targets that we missed previously when moving elsewhere.
