    Not that we actually buy anyone.  but so far we are suppose to be in for LB which I would be happy with if we sold Moreno.

    VVD as usual is there (as news) and biggest news of all is that we want Draxler on loan. Leon Goretzka is Barca bound.

    Sturridge looks to be off and if Can does not sign I would expect him to go too

    Man City will want a CB now Stones is crocked. I hope they gazump us for VVD.
    Why are we after a LB? We signed one in the summer. Klopp must hate him already, he's looked OK when I've seen him.

    Citeh prolly won't rival us for van Dijk unless Southampton lower the fee, which was the reason why they pulled out of the competition for him to begin with.

    I rate Robertson too but we need another LB even if Moreno leaves.  Milner and Gomez are presumably the alternatives and they're needed elsewhere.  Milner in particular did really well as a one-season stand-in but he won't have the legs for another stint there.

    Yes, they're so financially prudent

    Well, they dipped out previously for that reason and they're flying high without him, so there wouldn't seem to be much cause for them to change their minds now.

    Apart from the injury to Stones

    And it's possible they dropped out last time because of his obvious and well-publicised preference for Liverpool. The notion that the Arabs have any genuine issue with perceived value for money seems risible.

    One would think so, but that's how it was widely reported at the time.  Guess we'll find out soon enough.

    Express tried to interview him but he was too shy shy, hush hush, eye to eye

    As much as i love our club, why would anyone chose liverpool over Barcelona?  Rumours are all pointing towards him joining Barca.

    Keita just pushed for a move to us even though Barca were interested

    Exactly.  At LFC he'd probably be a guaranteed first teamer, that would not be the case (to say the least) at Barca and here he'd be playing for a manager he knows and probably admires, with the chance of getting a big club back into the big time and plenty of time to move on later if it doesn't work out.  Klopp has plenty of selling points to offer a player of Goretzka's age and ability.

    Linked with Aubameyang, albeit from the Express.

    Grujic linked with a loan move to Huddersfield.

    Good to hear, in both respects.  I like Grujic and have hopes for him, but he needs more playing time and Klopp can trust Wagner to handle him the right way.

    Both of those would make sense. If we sell Sturridge and buy Aubameyang that would be great - and the age thing (28) is not such a big issue given we have some very good young strikers coming through.

    Dortmund are out of the Champions League and struggling in the Bundesliga but he's still scored 18 goals in 23 games this season.

    Grujic needs to play.

    They're struggling so I doubt they'd want to get rid of a striker they couldn't possibly replace in Jan. Would love to have him of course.

    It's clear Can is signing this pre nup with Juve in January, so drop him to the reserves or the bench and play Grujic in the mean time.

    We should just sell him, Juve should not be able to have him for free.
