    PSG also on Tielemans and Alli.

    Well Ashley spent in 2013 and he's going to need to do it again in 2016. It will be interesting to see how quickly they make their moves.

    Klopp wants GK. LB. and a "Playmaker". No one really knows what position said Playmaker will be in though.

    Ruben Neves' name keeps coming up too.

    I guess anything is possible.

    Good luck getting a british player to play outside of england. There are maybe 3 brits actually relevant to their national teams currently playing abroad, and I think one of them was born in Spain. But I can definitely see why big clubs would be interested in Alli.

    Hopefully an 8, as stated before because they have too many 10's right now

    Good point, I can only think of Gerrard, Cole, Morrison, and Lampard but maybe my brain is fried.

    If the 'playmaker' isn't a CM I'd be surprised. All our CMs have the same weakness. They don't offer enough going forward. Hendo, Milner and Can are all B2B guys which lack passing range. Lucas is a DM and Allen is possession recycler. None offer enough going forward. It's been an issue with Rodgers this year, and imo still persists with Klopp.

    That's why we're struggling to get things going on that end (also fitness).

    At this point, his best move would be a top 4 team in Germany, one of the better teams in Portugal or Spain. Italy might be an option depending on the team. He won't get regular playing time with PSG or a top PL team.

    I think they'd like him to replace Rabiot as the last CM option. Maybe as Motta's heir too.

    Tielemans doesn't play in Motta's position. If anything it is one of Verratti or Matuidi he'd be looking to replace. I don't see Matuidi leaving and another top club might try to get Verratti. You would be losing some defensive ability, but I think Tielemans has better offensive attributes. Matuidi would have to play a more defensive approach/position.

    If he's going to replace Rabiot as the CM option, then I don't want him anywhere near Paris.

    Moving this to the appropriate thread, I can't see Madrid selling Rodriguez to PSG. Ronaldo sure, but then I can't understand why PSG would go after him. Hopefully they don't buy Ronaldo because if they do they'll probably overpay by quite a bit.

    I was talking in terms of numbers in midfield. Matuidi can always play more defensive. So can Verratti.
    Totally understand in the Rabiot case.

    I know why they want, and I disagree with them.
    PSG board wants to invest in a player that will attract sponsors, media attention, "respectability".
    I think that's a major mistake right now. They'll indeed overpay for him.
    I think PSG would be wiser to invest in a couple of young players than a 30+ year old Ronaldo.

    I guess I misunderstood the part about "Motta's heir", but he could definitely fit in a trio of Verratti and Matuidi. He has a better shooting and even passing ability (on par with Verratti probably) and his vision is incredible.

    Can't see Alli going anywhere. He's already a massive player for Spurs. Would take a lot of money. Of course PSG has it so we will see.

    Yeah, I figured that was why. It's funny because on their site right now they don't even have Verratti on the main page. They've got pictures of the bigger names.

    If I were PSG I'd go after Pogba and then monitor Hazard. A striker would also be a target, maybe Lacazette for now.

    It's over for Pogba really. He's going to Barca, and I think PSG has understood it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Liverpool grab Neves or Tielemans. However, I think it would be more appropriate to look at a team that isn't in the CL/EL so they don't end up with a player that is cup tied this winter and then they can go for one of those two and more in the summer. I think that Klopp will take the EL seriously enough for that to matter (although obviously there are still league games so it's not going to be a make or break issue).

    Yunus Malli is interesting but he's another player that looks to be more of a 10. I still like Dennis Praet but haven't heard much about him lately. He was fantastic in the CL last year -- especially against Arsenal.

    One other kind of outside of the box name would be Lewis Holtby. He's been moved deeper into midfield at Hamburg and is actually playing quite well there. Not sure if it's worth taking a chance on him or not but he is not that old, and pretty talented.

    Can Boufal play in midfield? That's another interesting option. Again though I would just rather see Coutinho moved back into midfield where he belongs and have Liverpool buy some real wide players since they have an overabundance of central attacking midfielders.

    They have enough midfielders, no?

    Considering that Gumbau makes their bench, I'd say no.

    Obviously. But if Rabiot leaves this winter and Motta next summer...
    Besides, how long will they be able to keep Verratti?

    EDIT : Sorry I thought you meant PSG. Did you mean Barca?
