My take on our signings/targets so far:
Aspas - don't see much different between him and Borini
Toure - Wouldn't of been my first choice
Alberto - very excited, my type of player
Llori - very promising
Atsu - don't see any need for him unless we get rid of Downing
Mkhitaryan - bit of a risk considering where he's coming from and his price tag. Same player as Eriksen only less experienced and more expensive
Toure - If you was looking for an experienced defender, who would slot right in and be a very capable back-up for free. Who would you have gone for instead?
Alberto - Not seen enough of him, but he sounds promising.
Llori - Same as above.
Atsu - Young, very fast, has potential, cheap. Would offer more than Downing from the bench. Downing will be off I reckon.
Mkhitaryan - Again hes completely different to Eriksen, just because a player plays the "same position" doesn't mean they are the same. Big price tag, but has done the business in Europe and domestically in a top side.
why are we in all honesty targeting ilori,alberto,aspas and mhkitaryan when we should be targeting alderwerield, diame, honda, tello and eriksen.
from those targets only see mhkit starting.
Is this the fella we were rumoured with, a defender?Dejan Lovren [Lyon - Southampton] £8.5m (reported)
"Their bid to sign Schalke defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos, however, is over. The Reds' interest in the Greek international has cooled after initial negotiations with the German club proved fruitless.
Liverpool rate Papadopoulos, and value him at around £12m, but Schalke's insistence on a deal worth around £20m means the deal is no longer an option, with Rodgers now set to pursue other central defensive targets. Ajax's Toby Alderweireld is a potential option."
Echo claim we're no longer in for Papadopoulos. Very disappointed, if true. He looks a cut above all other defensive options this summer. Hopefully we can get them to come back to us with a lower asking price.
SSN are reporting that Higuain is to join Arsenal which they took from a Guardian story. Wow...
Diame is a joke for Liverpool. There is a reason Wigan let his contract run down and only West Ham wanted him, and nobody has seriously tried to buy him with such a low release clause
I like Tello but he does not want to leave his beloved Barcelona. I hope we get him, even if it is initially on loan
Eriksen is like Papadopoulos. He has become an obsession for LFC fans when Mkhitaryan is a better player than him and has demonstrated that for Shakhtar in their domestic league and the CL, and he has proved himself at international level
So looks like this so far:
Kolo Toure - FREE
Luis Alberto - £7m
Aspas - £7.7m
Total - £25.7m
Carroll - £15m
Net Spend £10.7m
Looks OK so far but i fail to see a first teamer yet.
The First 11 Quality is our priority.
I think Honda on a free would be good business.
Also if we could add mkhitaryan and someone like tello our attacking midfield options would be excellent.
I think we are more or less under spending to be objective and I applaud that wise and prudent financial acquisition plan.
Brendan Rodgers on Talksport says Pepe Reina has been 'fully aware' of plans to draft in Simon Mignolet as competition for places at #LFC
...I think Honda on a free would be good business...
Only as shirt seller in Japan that is...
Actualy since I am more concern about our defrense- how did we decided that Papa is soo good?
And how we forget about Sakho who is actualy very good and expirienced
It is a smart thing to do with or without Standart...
I would gladly sacriface Shelvey for Honda by the way
Swansea captain Ashley Williams, 29, is preparing to tell his club he wants to leave this summer. Arsenal are the centre-back's preferred destination, ahead of Everton and Liverpool.
Full story: Daily Telegraph
Ashley Williams may have several preferred options for next season, his problem seems to be that at this time none of the clubs mentioned prefer him
Because he plays for the club Rodgers used to manage he gets a lot of abuse on here, despite being one of the best and most consistent centre backs in the Premiership last season. His problem is that statement still does not say a lot as there were very few decent centre backs in the league last year, and for a player who is 29 the supposed £10m Swans want for him is far too much
I have seen a lot of this player & i agree with a lot of you he would fit in under Brendans way of playing...but i can never remember him at arsenal tbh.
Gerard Deulofeu on loan anyone? Sure I read that him and Alberto played well together.
