    ^^ What's more frustrating is a player like Sirigu is going on loan to Torino from PSG. He's an upgrade yet we continue on with Migs.

    Should be interesting to see how this plays out. It's clear we need some help at striker (he can play there I guess?) since Klopp doesn't want to play Benteke and everyone else is injured (and really Firmino's best position is behind the striker though he is serviceable there). Apparently many teams are after him though.

    Manchester United have been dealt a blow after John McDermott, Tottenham Hotspur’s highly regarded head of coaching and player development, rebuffed an approach to join the club as part of a planned overhaul of their academy.
    .
    It is understood that McDermott rejected the opportunity in order to stay with Tottenham, where he has a strong working relationship with Mauricio Pochettino, the head coach.

    Looks like Pato is joining Chelsea.

    Eh why not, if he is cheap and is motivated to prove he can at that level, low risk signing

    Chelsea also interested in signing Lavezzi.


    Benedict Rossi moving back to Villarreal in the summer but will finish this season at Levante.

    Andrej Kramaric has joined Hoffenheim on loan.

    Branislav Ivanovic has signed a one year extension.

    Luiz Adriano move to China falls through.

    Yeah. I guess Milan was happy to double their money on him after 6 months. He was in China to finalize the move and decided against it.


    Pato reportedly turned down 9m pounds per year from a second tier Chinese side. Going to be making 1.7m with Chelsea.

    Don't see the harm in the Pato move.
    Season's gone to **** and they won't be in CL next year anyways.
    Has potential to turn into something good and if not, they'll just unload him.

    Gazzetta is linking Liverpool with Morata.

    Don't know how strong the link is, but Gazzetta is usually a decent source.

    But Juve is on fire right now so I thought they let him go

    I brought it up earlier, but Juventus certainly has the forward depth if they chose to make the move.

    There are some barriers to Juventus and Liverpool doing business though, but Morata is a guy who makes a ton of sense.

    60M for Morata is dumb. Morata wasn't that good last year and had an insane amount of hype surrounding him for some stupid reason.

    15 goals in 46 games last season. 3 in 26 this year. Includes 1 goal in 18 Serie A games.

    Hell, anything over 30 for Morata would be a mistake.

    He ain't that good so maybe they'd let him go. Although Zaza is a guy who shouldn't be on the team.

    With his goalscoring record Morata would have been on a plane to Liverpool if they really offered that much. Definitely not true.

    Liverpool have made a €32m offer for Alex Teixeira but Shakhtar Donetsk are seeking closer to €50m for the attacker.


    Can he play wing?

    Looks like he does most of his work centrally. That being said he definitely has pace.

    I don't know why Liverpool would spend resources on another central attacking player though, even if he is a very good one.

    I agree that Morata is average but he is a good backup 9 for Juve tbh, although he hasn't been good lately

    SS I think.

    But if we're getting him I'd imagine it's to try and play him at striker. Will have to wait and see...definite legs to this deal with Ayre going over and Barrett among other reputable sources reporting it, but even if we buy him it's a big transition. Hope he adjusts like Douglas Costa rather than say Luiz Adriano (assuming we get him). Could be quite a deadly front line when fully healthy.

    Firmino - Teixeira - Coutinho
    Striker (Studge, Benteke, Origi, Ings)​

    or

    Firmino - Coutinho
    Teixeira​

    With a midfield 3.
