Hahaha who is getting a Liverpool shirt with Everton on the back then! That would be funny as fuck to see though!

In all
Honesty do you reckon that the blokes name would put the club off signing him.... even if he was world class???
No I don't think it would put the club off and agree it would be funny as fuck. Less funny if he makes a horrible mistake which costs us a final. You can just see the headline now.

Some links below to give you an idea on his style as well as his Copa America goal against Peru.

This Bitter -- I mean Everton feller, he seems to have decent ball control, but what were the quality of the players up against him? If they are only second or third rate, then he would look like a million dollars.

Fair point. Bolivia who arent much chop, Venezuela and Peru. The later who are fairly solid.

That said. The likes of Firmino and Coutinho struggled against the same opponents.

I must admit to having not watched any of the Copa America matches, so I will go along with what you say. Do you think he's good enough to play for us and how much do you think he's worth us spending on him if we decided to buy?

William this is not real life. You must log out and go and get some fresh air. Unless you really are thinking of clubbing together with belldiouf to go and buy Everton???

I think we are at a bit of a turning point in world football. It may be post Madrid hype, but I genuinely believe Liverpool and Man City are on the brink of becoming the two most dominate clubs in world football. Much like Madrid and Barcelona have been for some time.

For that reason, I think we should be looking at world class players with huge fees to fill out the squad and assert some dominance. I'm not sure Everton fits that description, but he looks a real prospect and would be a solid back up to Mane and Salah. He would have a good group of Brazilians around him to help him settle as well. I have no idea how much he is worth, but I would expect an extra 10million would be slapped on him simply because we are Liverpool. Transfer market has him at 20 million Euros.


As a half Uruguayan, I love the Copa. I also like the look of Maxi Gomez from Uruguay, but he wont feature much with Suarez and Cavani ahead of him. He is more of an out and out striker. Imagine a muscular Peter Crouch and that's your guy. Great on the deck and in the air. Has a bit of mongrel in him as well.

Ha, I couldn't afford to even buy him his socks. I could maybe supply him with a couple of lassy bands to keep up the socks he already has. I can lay my hands on loads of them after our postie chucks them away after delivering small packages.

What you say about Clyne is true, but a failing that a lot of people attribute to him is that, unlike Robbo and Trent, he's not very good at crossing the ball into the box as our fullbacks do now.
This is by intent. Rodgers did not fancy his full backs launching the ball from the flanks as much as he prefers passing the ball on the deck which Clyne is more accustomed to.

Trent's ball playing ability is what's getting him in the team, not that he is bad at defending. Clyne is a pure defender. Although I do feel like blooding trent for two years was worth the return of investment. i'm just wondering at what point do we realise that 50 games is too much for a 20 year old.

I rather have Clyne as a stand in for robertson and trent than milner being a stand-in. Again I feel klopp finds one thing lacking from clyne as a full back that he's willing to see out other options.

I wouldn't be against signing a two footed full back like Arbeloa who eventually became a mainstay.

Yeah, or maybe someone who can play in two or three defensive positions. I have no idea what player is out there who could fill those requirements, but Jürgen loves players who can cover more than one position.

An Arbeloa mkII and a LW come CF would be a great transfer window in my eyes.
Moreno leaving means we're in the market for a left back although i'd like to see someone who's not as one footed get a chance at it.

I like the fact that gomez could fill in on both flanks, but i prefer him in the middle.

If I'm Liverpool and spending on a player in Brazil, it's Joao Pedro from Fluminense. Probably no hurry to make that deal though considering it would probably be rodrygo money or more.

Moreno’s right leg was for standing on only nothing more lol

Gomez is a CB in my eyes who can if needs must play RB but don’t want him having to play LB

I've spoken about him on this forum a few months ago. Everton is a beast. He could be an amazing Mané V2. He is way too good. In fact, when you are the best player on the pitch for the past 2 matches and the likes of Coutinho, Firmino and Arthur are also on the pitch, you must be very good.

About his name, I bet Klopp wouldn't give a f* about it, but could be called Soares or by his nickname, Little Onion.

There's a nice piece on him here:

Grêmio want €40m, which is nothing in terms of what Liverpool could spend and how good Everton is.
_
About João Pedro, we will have to see. He is just 17 year old, but looks very, very impressive. I doubt Watford will be able to land him.

Just like I spoke about the likes of Paquetá, Arthur and Everton a few months/years ago, people should also pay attention to Bruno Guimarães, Jean Pyerre, Matheus Henrique and João Pedro. They all look incredibly promissing.

What about a work permit?

I might be wrong, but I think he has more international games than Richarlison before he join Everton (the club, lol), so maybe he could be endorsed (I guess it's like 75% of the last matches in a year or two?). I don't think it would be an issue, especially because City were looking for him a few months ago and according to a reliable Brazilian source (who broke the Alisson to Liverpool transfer before everyone) they were confident he could receive a work permit.

The club who will buy him must know better of course, but if there's a good chance, we should go for him 100%. We have already lost Arthur, Paquetá (the perfect number 8 in Klopp's setup), and as things stand, we might lose Everton too.

I've liked him for a couple of years now but I've only just seen that Ryan Fraser had more assists in the league last year (14) than anyone apart from Hazard (15).


I think he could be a really useful (Shaqiri but on the left type) signing. He also works hard, covering more ground last season than any Liverpool player (Robertson being the highest) and the 11th most overall.

Also one year left on his contract.

Thank God the source is bad, I'd hate seeing him playing for City. Was offered to Napoli too.

Come on, LFC.
If we were to buy this guy then I wouldn't get too attached to him because he seems the sort that would be attracted / attractive to RM and Barca. If he came to us and turned out to be as good as Suarez or Coutinho then we'd probably be making a big profit 2 or 3 years from now. I'm not saying that just because he's from South America, but he seems to be a more spectacular player than say Firmino or Fabhino and so would probably catch the eye more.
