    Solanke has told pals he's off to Anfield.

    But Liverpool could be forced to hand out 8m for the player, The S*n report.

    As he's aged under 24, Chelsea will want compensation.

    I totally agree, does this type of player fit the plans of our manager and this so called transfer committee though ?

    Its just so frustrating when you see a guy you want and value him at around 20m, then the selling club president deems (and publically brands him as) the next Suarez. And his fee jumps. Look at Lacazette, went from a good guy to take a punt on to someone who will command around 40-50m you would imagine, and mainly because every time somebody makes a tentative enquiry Aulas seems to let the world know. Obviously good business practice from the guy, but so frustrating.

    It still REALLY gets to me that we wasted a move on Mario Balotelli. Il never get over that. To buy him AND Origi at the same time was just ridiculous stupidity. 1s clearly for the future, and theres a time and place for those signings, but the other was clear clear gash that left us with a skeleton strikeforce.

    Id loan out Origi for the first 3 months to somewhere he will play next season, until the games pile up. Im deadly serious when I say Id send him Celtic if they sold Dembele. For a year even if they sold him to us. Studge will most likely go. We need at least two in, and if Solanke is one then we got a real poacher there. 8m isnt a fee worth mentioning, nor is his wage. They guys a good bee for the swarm.

    We need one with him tho. Mousa Dembele or some sort of proven scorer. I dont think anyones planning to hold a space for Ings now, I dont think we can afford it.

    It will be an interesting summer.
    mane is an option at 9....

    firmino mane and origi are good options for 9

    i suspect someone like inaki williams will be signed... and a winger likely also

    once in a while we need to go for a top player for the now, even if they "only" have 3 or 4 years left in the tank and little resale value

    And I mean a top player not another Rickie Lambert (no offence Rickie)

    Solanke, the young kid from Chelsea runs out of his contract this summer, and he's being linked to us.
    Also we have Fernando Torres who will be a free agent too this summer

    Can we get them in to replace Sturridge and Horoscope Origi

    That's Klopp business style, we sell Sturridge and Origi, get two strikers for free to replace them.

    Solanke won't be free - like Ings there will be a compensation payment

    But he's still good business, he'll never cost as much as we paid for Ings

    Prefer him to Origi for now

    We can sell Origi for profit, 20m will be a good price for Origi

    Also a loyal player too, perfect in that regard too. And as someone who hasn't watched him bar highlights, how is his pressing?

    Might just be using our name as leverage over his new contract. Apparently hes asking 50k a week from Chelsea after making one appearance for them. If its money the lads interested in let him go else where.

    This is one of the hardest positions, to get right improvement in.

    Firmino is great as a false 9 in the setup, off the Ball movement, bit of skill, very hard worker, potential 15 goal scorer a season

    Origi has the potential to be a mobile target man, good at hold the line, give us options of different types of ball with his pace, hard worker, potential goalscorer around 10/15.

    Don't see anyone else in the squad fitting what's required as the lone striker.

    So do we buy top striker and try to fit Firmino and changing the whole way which try to play

    Or Firmino to become a squad player which to me is too good for that role

    Or do we buy young prospect to be better than both Firmino and Origi

    Most top teams have 2 or even 3 top strikers in the squad and arguably we don't have any.

    Chelsea have one main goal scorer and one potential backup player

    City have 1 top striker, two potential strikers

    United have one legend and two potential strikers.

    Arsenal have a bunch of average strikers.

    Tottenham have one player relies on service.

    Like I said we've got two strikers who fit way we play.

    Origi as back up Firmino is ok. It how how we improve on the striking situation without causing imbalance in the rest of the team

    But Chelsea have a 33 million signing in Michy Batshuay sitting on the bench and one of the top strikers in Europe in Costa , City are similar with Aguro and 27 million Jesus on the bench Arsenal have Sanchez and Geroud and United have Zlatan and Rooney Tottenham have Harry Kane. All those clubs have some of the best strikers in Europe

    I wouldn't mind someone like Michy Batshuayi or Gabriel Jesus as a back up striker. I wouldn't mind either of them as our first choice let alone a squad player.

    Like i said

    Chelsea have one Big striker & potential striker

    City have like I said one big striker plus 2 potential players

    Arsenal have Geroud Welbeck and a bunch of young players, don' t see Sanchez as out and out striker

    United said have the big Sweden & two potential players, Rooney is done at the top.

    Tottenham like I said have an average striker who relies on solely on service , he not spectacular, Tottenham have not got no other strikers good enough

    Not so sure id class Michy Batshuayi at 33 million as a player with potential he just finished a full season scoring 23 goals he had a bit more than just potential. I think all those clubs have two top quality strikers apart from Tottenham who have one . We really don't have any right now.

    Michy has struggled quite a bit though for Chelsea, he is still quite raw.

    We play with one striker, we are moving towards pass and move football.

    The chemistry with Henderson/ Wijnaldum/ Lallana was top notch in central midfield, any of component was taken out,

    The balance in central midfield was destroyed.

    We seen the the balance enough front 3 go up in the air when Mane & Coutino were missing.

    So if buy top striker, were does Firmino fit in?

    Are going thow all hard work done to get balance right in central midfield and attack in three players so we can fit Firmino in the team

    Agreed but id still class him more of a proven talent than just a young player with potential. It's not really surprising his time is limited for Chelsea when they have one of the best in Costa. Id be delighted to have someone like Michy Batshuayi as a bench player.

    Those questions will have to be answered by Mr Klopp when we bring in a top striker which we do desperately need imo.

    Not a top player though, i'd take Origi over him at this stage.

    If Ings can come through the latest injury I doubt we'll need a new striker because Ings can take Sturridges spot.
    Farewell my lovers.
