Always liked Kevin Volland and think he would fit our style better than Timo Werner would. 19 months left on his contract but will be 28 next year - still think he could be the perfect squad player for us.

How's Paco Alcacer compared to both.

Alcacer is a sensational finisher but with a low work rate and too injury prone.

Kevin Volland could cover Firmino and Salah and would fit in so well with his pressing game. 7 goals and 6 assists in 20 games this season.

I guess we need an actual DM backup...Fabinho has been world-class in that position with his sense of awareness...Having Hendo in there will make us quite open than what we can accept.

And we need a back-up forward to Firmino...

Do you know that Fabinho did play very few games until new year last season where we reached almost 100 points and won the CL?

Before that we reached another CL and EL final with Henderson as the DM.

Trying to criticize Hendo is just bull:poop:

Erm, Fab's PL first start was on 27th October ( which is just about 2 months after the first league game started?) against Cardiff and he pretty much started or got subbed in nearly every league game after that.

I believe we won the CL final and THAT 2nd leg semi-final with Fabinho in DM.

I know this is brutal but with Hendo at the DM position, we did not win anything at all.

Just stick milner in there and we can stop all this back and forth before it really kicks in.

I wonder if we'll be looking at bringing Sander Berge in January. Looks a real class player. Big presence aswell. And what about Harry Wilson? Looks like he is a more effective player than Salah these days.

Harry Wilson is on a good scoring record but he won't make it in Liverpool depending on a one trick pony. Its nice to have a great free kick taker but Klopp requires alot more from his players. Wilson at this moment disappears too much during games

I would be surprised if we are not working on signings but as Klopp always insisted, he signs only who he wants not one of a cluster of similar players

I don’t this is the way to tackle the issue. Fabinho is a positional specialist, and one of the best in the world. DMs (or any position) are not just like Lego pieces you can swap in and out. It took Fabinho himself several months to be fully able to play that role the way Klopp wants.

Buying someone to have in reserve, in case Fab is injured makes no sense.

Hendo, Gini will be trusted to play that role. Milner and Lallana can also do a job there.

Whenever I've seen him, he has an amazing free kick and like you said, he can pop up and score a goal but most of the time, it looks like he is hiding on the pitch. Pity since we could really do with a dead ball specialist like him. But as you say, there has to be a lot more than that. He wouldn't be bad for a mid-table/relegation team and I can easily see him ending up at the likes of Newcastle.

I would love for us to sign Barbosa AKA Gabigol who plays for Flamengo he’s there on loan from Inter he has scored 34 goals for them and he said he would love to play with his compatriot Bobby at Anfield JK could close the deal after we play them in the WCC in Qatar. Sarri doesn’t fancy him much we could do a good job with him as we did with PC who flopped at Inter too?

I agree with pretty much everyone that Fabinho is absolute different class and is without doubt the best holding midfielder in the PL and an expert in that holding role.

But of all the holding midfielders to bring in as cover or rotation would be Ruben Neves as hes another outstanding young player who Klopp would turn into a world beater, whether he wants to play second fiddle to Fab though is another matter.

Also speaking of left backs to cover Robbo, whats the crack with Adam Lewis? Always liked watching him in the youth but it seems like Larouci's ahead of him in the pecking order.

With the way Cutis Jones is coming along we have plenty of options in midfield and Milner can cover Robertson, just look how good Milner was today in midfield and at Leftback (thought he was better as Left back than midfield personally). :)
The more the season goes on the more it looks like Klopp knows wht he is doing, doesn't it? :p

Would there be work permit issues?
