    The source seems dodgy, but maybe there is something to this. I’ve added a poll with the only two correct options possible.

    I’d obviously like to have Jude or whoever in right now but if that’s really not possible then there’s no harm in this at all.

    @rurikbird  - both options are shit as it implies we are really not interested in getting a midfielder in this transfer window, which I think we need.   To be honest I don't understand all this hype about Jude for next season and all what that means - for England he is good only against fodder if that, and most of me don't get the hype surrounding him.  Also how has Jude become our only option when we were in for Tchouameni - who is a totally different type of midfielder ? - what the f*ck is that all about and Jude being 18/19 or whatever - is a huge leap of faith on our part.

    Getting back to Gini - if he is the only person we can afford then I guess we know what we are getting, but there is the risk that he is not going to be the same player he was given the little playing time he has had at PSG, and also the fact that he is going to be older.  But we do need a player capable of covering for Fabinho/Hendo - and I guess with him we know he can fill in those roles.  Seriously though, we needed an athlete rather than adding to our ageing midfield.  This whole transfer window is turning out to be a joke.

    Seriously, man? We’ve signed a shit-hot £80M striker, the best young attacker in the Championship and a talented Scottish right-back and got Diaz earlier - that’s all a “joke” to you? Maybe some fans deserve to be brought back to the times of Voronin and Konchesky to remember what it was like…

    Yes in many ways it is a joke, especially when you start to mention these under 21's we have signed and are stopping our spending this transfer window because we want to spunk away a shed load of money signing this potential English talent for next season - who will still be under 21 years old.  I have high hopes for Nunez, but our initial priority which was to get a midfielder is something that should have remained a priority this transfer window.  We have a world cup this year, so think about the hyper inflation to any transfer fees for next season.  I just wish Klopp and our Transfer team would do their usual magic of getting a player for 30M-35M for our midfield - one who has great potential, and turn him into a world-beater, if anyone can then Klopp can.  There has to be an abundance of talent for midfield out there between the ages of 23 - 25.

    What did we spend on them? 10m? 2 potentially good Players for around 10m now + addons down the road if they work out. Wouldnt. Really call that a shed load now would you and as has been pointed out Diaz was signed in January but money came out of summer transfer funds so should be counted as a summer transfer....

    Why would he come back to a club where he apparently didn't feel the love - I hope he gets all the love he craves at PSG.

    No thanks.

    He burned that bridge by himself.

    I was responding to rurikbird regarding the signing of 3 players, - in my mind we have signed just one major - the others are too young to be taken as serious signings just yet - even if they turn out to be gems.  The Diaz signing - yeah I hear you but again you have to question why last season after all that suffering and shit we only signed Konate and no one else ? - really do you think it was good enough ? - No - that Diaz signing was a late signing that should've been made last summer, and we did need him in the end given AFCON and our long season.  Again this idea that Diaz was being planned for this summer is something I just don't believe.

    I like Gini and was firmly against letting him go, he was a huge part of our success under Klopp. That said I'm not sure signing him now makes any sense even on loan, unless we are offloading Keita.

    Missing the obvious third option is a massive omission.

    He is the idea stop gap option - knows the club, knows the system, pretty fit (not injury prone) and might have a point to prove (+to “redeem” himself).

    Signing a player like him on loan will also probably mean the likes of Morton and Clarkson can be allowed to leave on loan.

    If you refer to the fixture schedule on the Premier League Fixtures thread, it’s pretty packed and we can’t rely on a midfield with players of Tiago and Keith’s injury record to see through the entire season.

    That’s the problem with ghosts - they keep coming back.

    Some sort of exorcism is in order to finally set his soul free.

    Tempted to say he can go stuff himself, but I didn't want him to go in the first place and we could do with him so, on balance, yes.

    I suppose whatever happens we're unlikely to see him play for us again.
