Said ages ago Ricardo Pereira from Leicester would of been a quality addition as cover for both fullbacks.

Also said Lewis Dunk's name a while back now i reckon the values of these two alone will be sky high.

As of now Neves and Sancho would do just fine.

Lautaro Martinez. He would have to be very high up on the list of strikers if we were to buy one. Very good player. There's probably a need for two forwards with a wide forward as well.

And Havertz, 75m Euros + 11m in addons. I am watching him against Juve. The guy has insane ball control. Jurgen should use any German related influence he has.

Have we ever been closely linked to Moussa Dembele of Lyon? I thought he might be available at a decent price probably in the 40-60s range. Good scoring record. Decent pace, good header of the ball, willing to run with or without the ball, can play central or through the channels, and good scoring record. And now much news of him being linked to bigger clubs. Still young at 23. Only possible difficulty is Lyon's willingness to talk with us after the previous debacle with Fekir. I thought he might be a good challenger to Firmino style of player.

No particular player that I am thinking about but I think the African players plying their trade in Austria, Switzerland and Denmark must be worth keeping close tabs on. Seems like a well known path to the bigger sides in Europe and I doubt the prices would be that high. Raw talents undoubtedly but surely a few of them are worth investing time into.
Nearly right.

Yes , when he was at Fulham on a youth contract, then we were interested before he moved to Celtic and plenty when he was at Celtic too.

Front 3:
We will have Bobby, Mo, Mane, Origi, Shaq, Minamino, Brewster, Jones, Wilson and Elliot, Ojo, Woodburn and Awoniyi.

Bobby, Mo, Mane, Origi, Minamino, Shaq and Wilson stays here, while Brewster, Jones, Woodburn goes on loan. Elliot plays in U23. Ojo and Awoniyi gets sold.
Or maybe we sell Shaq and Wilson too and get a new winger as marquee signing - not sure right now. Need to see at the end of season.

Midfield:
We have Fab, Hendo, Gini, Ox, Keita, Milner, Lallana, Grujic, Ejaria and Allan.

Fab, Hendo, Gini, Ox, Keita stays here while Lallana leaves. Milner joins us as a staff. Grujic, Ejaria and Allan gets sold. We buy a midfielder - either a number 6 or a number 8.

Defence:
We have Robo, VVD, Gomez, TAA, Lovren, Matip, Clyne, Hoever, Larouci, VDB, Neco Williams and Nat Phillips.

Robo, VVD, Gomez, TAA, Lovren, Matip, Hoever stays here. Clyne and Nat gets sold. Larouci, VDB and Neco Williams plays in u23. We get a LB.

GK:
We have Alisson, Adrian, Andy, Kelleher, Grabara and Karius.

keep Alisson and Adrian. Sell Karius. Not sure on other 3. Probably release Andy, get a new number 3? Send both Kelleher and Grabara on loan?

Probably been discussed , but we still need a CB. We're okay with covers for RB and LB at a pinch but with Lovren,Matip,Fabinho all injured...All we have are Hoever and Van Den Berg to cover for Gomez who is shaky on the injury front and VVD.

Nobody would come in as fifth choice it would have to be one out and one in.

Over the next 2 windows if we could get in Minamino, Jamal Lewis (in jan) , and Werner and Havertz in the summer we would be in a very good place .
This would allow Lallana to leave and Brewster and Jones to go out on season long loans.Clyne and Wilson to be sold.

Clyne isnt going to be sold. He wont have recovered from his achilles injury before the next window and his contract expires next summer.

If Lovren does leave I could see us bringing in Sander Berge. I think Hoever will cover CB as well as Berge and Fabinho. Sancho would be a dream move if Shaqiri and Wilson leave. Could do with a LB but Milner is pretty boss when he plays there and I think he will stay.

I would buy Lewis Dunk.

With Lovren injury more serious and Matip out I would like to see us bring this fella in. Superb defender.

Matip is back in 2 weeks isn't he?
Is he? I don't think anybody really knows do they? But his return isn't set in stone. Lovren out aswell. Ditto Fabinho. I really think it's too soon for Van Den Berg and Hoever. Who else can play CB?

Okay, Dunk with a reported pricetag of £60m won't happen but I think we would be wise to bring in an experienced Klavanesque signing.

18 month left on contract according to Transfermarkt.co.uk
Upamecano, 21, Leipzig
Ginter, 25, Monchengladbach
Elvedi, 23 Monchengaldbach
Badiashile, 18, Monaco
Sarr, 20, Nice

Potentially could move for one of them in the summer. I don't watch those leagues so don't know how good they are but certainly Upamecano has recieved a lot of praise in the media and the two Monchengladbach players are sitting top of the Bundesliga.

Hopefully in the summer we'll bring in a CB and let Lovren go. He has been a great servant despite his occasional mishaps, but the real issue is fitness. He never seems to last more than a dozen games without breaking down in some way or another. Gomez and Matip are injury prone too, but they are better players when fit.

Agree on letting him go but mainly due to injuries and his age, he’ll be 31 come the start of next season which ain’t a spring chicken as a Liverpool defender.

The club were willing to let him go this summer. I dont see them having a problem letting him go next year if there isnt a number of CBs out injured or demanding a move from the club. Particularly if our forwards and midfield need no other signings. I'm hoping that Wijnaldum will sign a new deal, he is perhaps the last of the regular players not to have signed one i think.

Next summer I expect to see the following outgoings:

Lovren (31) will probably be allowed to move on next summer with 1 year remaining on his contract. Hoever will hopefully be ready to take his place in the squad by then.

Lallana (31) and Clyne (28) will most certainly be released when their contracts expire in 2020. Lallana's limited squad role can easily be filled by Jones and Minamino going forwards.

Grujic's future seems to be elsewhere and it wouldn't be surprising to see him loaned again, or even sold.

I'd also be surprised if Wilson isn't sold next summer. Klopp's latest quotes about him being a good player but needing to learn to link with teammates suggests to me that he's not in Klopp's plans.

Those outgoing transfers would leave the squad for 2020/21 as follows:

---------------------------- Alisson (27) --------------------------------
---------------------------- Adrian (32) ---------------------------------
---------------------------- Grabara (20) --------------------------------
---------------------------- Kelleher (21) -------------------------------

Trent (21) ------ Matip (28) ------- Van Dijk (28) ---- Robertson (25)
Hoever (17) --- Gomez (22) ------ Vd Berg (17) ------- (Milner)
Williams (18)

--------------------------- Fabinho (26) --------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------- Wijnaldum (29) ---------------- Henderson (29) -------------
------------ Keita (24) ----------------------- Ox (26) -------------------
----------- Milner (33) --------------------- Jones (18) -----------------

Salah (27) ---------------- Firmino (28) -------------------- Mané (27)
Shaqiri (28) ---------------- Origi (24) ----------------- Minamino (25)
Elliott (17) ---------------- Brewster (19) -------------------------------

What I think the squad lacks mostly are young understudy's for Fabinho and Robertson, though in the short-term Milner and Henderson can cover those roles. Ideally we can bring in a left sided version of Hoever for LB, and someone like Sander Berge who can play DM and cover in CB.

Minamino's versatility makes it hard to predict whether we'll go after an AM or another wide forward next summer. Another attacking signing may also depend on whether or not Shaqiri stays. There should be a huge amount of money available next summer for a splash in the forward positions should Klopp want to do something; perhaps like changing Shaqiri and Origi into one more prolific player, like Timo Werner or another top attacker.

Don’t think Hoever/SvdB will be able to replace Lovren until Summer 2021.

If Lovren leaves someone has to be brought in - even if it is 'just' a Caulker/Klavan type of signing. Ideally it would be someone who knows the league or with international experience.
