    but he does have some awesome strengths to his game also.
    He would be a better option than Origi I think.

    He would be the perfect signing for Arsenal.

    I agree, not sure about perfect, but I do think he would be a good signing for them.

    Koeman did say Lukaku should leave and then Koeman will be next to jump ship, then their new stadium will fall through. Was amusing watching them get giddy when the new investor came in and then invested **** all.

    Do you think there'd be any prospect of the bitters selling to us as their beloved neighbours..........?

    Just a little relevant stat (or related set of), last player to come to Liverpool from bittersville was Abel Xavier in 2002, Barmby in 2000 the previous instance and 1959 the one before that!

    I should mention the source does state this excludes any players who may have gone to the club after their contract expired so this is basically (in contract) transfers
    People will believe what they want to believe

    He is better than origi no doubt. But origi suits our style of play better. He runs the channels and links up better.

    Lukaku is an awesome player on his day. But he would be much better suited to united. They will play the way it suits him. Maureen plays boring football, lumps it high up the pitch. Thats where lukaku will be dangerous.

    This is how I've rated him. This year he has stepped it up and looked better though. I see him going to United or back to Chelsea if he stays in the PL.

    I remember wanting Beardsley back. That was a huge mistake when Souness sold him to the bitter ones.

    As far as Lukaku is concerned, three lads who bevvy in my local - all Evertonians - hope they get rid of him. There's no pleasing their kind, is there?

    Batshuayi was tip replace Lukaku the national team as he was considered a better prospect even more so than Origi

    Had more consistent goal scoring record in France, much more physical player

    I know he hasn't shown it and Chelsea but Chelsea to go through a lot of talented players without giving many players a chance

    Strikers optional Firmino , Origi, Batshuayi looks to me a good solid choice to choose from

    I'm surprised that we haven't looked more at Belgian players as the outfield players have good technical skills like Spain but work rate of English players

    A number of strikers have scored 15+ Premiership goals in a season - a fair few of them pretty average

    Andy Johnson
    Santa Cruz
    Odemwingie
    Dempsey
    Yakubu
    Ba
    Michu
    Bony
    Austin
    Vardy

    However, the list of players who have done it more than just the one season is a lot more accomplished

    Henry
    Van Nistlerooy
    Rooney
    Ronaldo
    Torres
    Drogba
    Van Persie
    Aguero
    Suarez
    Kane

    Lukaku is in the 2nd list, hence his huge expected transfer fee

    Don't know why but I don't rate Lukaku in the top top class striker bracket. He's a good player for a team like Everton but don't think he'd be that great at one of the bigger clubs. He didn't do too badly at the chavs but still, wouldn't want him here that's for sure. He's another Benteke

    Not if you think how much he would actually cost and the fact that he doesn't suit our style of play. I don't see Lakaku as a fluid skilful player at all, he's all power and pace.

    No me neither, I was just making the point that players who consistently score goals in the Premiership are worth a lot of money!

    Yeah no doubt he'll go for a lot of money. It's pretty much why we paid so much for Benteke. He was prolific for Villa

    Lukaku is as strong as an ox and is a good target man. The problem is he's got the mobility of Felliani, Andy Carroll and a wheelie bin. Origi as the others have said suits Liverpool's style, because unlike Lukaku, Origi can turn on a sixpence. Lukaku turns like a ferry.

    There isn't a hope of Liverpool signing Lukaku as he doesn't suit their style.

    There is a number of reasons.

    1. Lukaku is a target man and thrives on crosses. Liverpool's set piece delivery is dreadful.

    2. KLopp prefers mobile, flexible, interchangeable forwards. That's why Lukaku wouldn't fit in, he would be as useful as Benteke.

    Forget Lukaku. What Liverpool need is a cross between Diego Costa and Sergio Aguero.

    If you mean since Xavier, whether they have had players we wanted or not is tempered by the likelihood we'd be able to compete for the signature but also whether they'd sell to us anyway

    We must have been interested in Baines.

    What Liverpool need is a player that although not a target man has upper body strength, pace and comes to life in the penalty area.

    I still reckon if you threw an in his prime Robbie Fowler into that team, it would be fantastic.

    It's that type of player we need.

    My point is that regardless whether we were extremely interested, slightly interested or somewhere inbetween, how much in our mind would be said two factors - competing with bigger spending powers and that it isn't often we trade with our beloved neighbours, they surely appreciate how little their fans would like it as much as our fans would(n't)

    Klopp has said that he wants to play more Direct football against defensive teams

    In English football you have to adapt your ways of playing

    Is great that we can play pass and move and the pull apart opposition for fun

    So sometimes you have to use a target man and two wingers who are just cross opposition box all the time

    And then if that doesn't work go back to the more technical game

    Origi has the necessary skills as a modern day target man awareness strength pace and so on,

    The thing is he's not the finished article and not really that strong enough to hold his own all the time

    That's why I prefer to have Emile Heskey tape player who pain in the backside who can have in the squad to mix it up at times
