    This seems to be whatís going to happen next summer and interested as to what you would do with our squad if they did end up going though?

    Iíd personally go and buy out Oblakís release clause, pay whatever Monaco want for Lemar and then go and try and get Goretzka and a top striker to replace Sturridge. Thatís not including Keitaís arrival or the fact iíd buy Van Dijk in January and another centre back. Mad to think how much work still needs to be done to this squad. Thank god for Salah, Bobby and Mane

    I'd do this...

    Jan Oblak - £77m
    Jose Gimenez - £0m
    Stefan de Vrij - £0m
    Leon Goretzka - £0m
    Timo Werner - £50m



    Oblak

    Clyne - Matip - De Vrij - Moreno

    Keita - Goretzka

    Salah - Firmino - Mane

    Werner

    I also wouldn't be jumping up and down to replace Sturridge.

    I realise that Sturridge isn't the player he once was, but there's no point in signing Origi and Solanke if you aren't going to give them chances. Origi especially, who has already proven to us that he IS capable of scoring important goals for us. He was massive for us in that Europa League season and at times looked unplayable. The talent is there, he deserves more of a chance.

    If Phil goes for 120 mil, I would minus the Keita fee and see what that leaves, then we will know how much we have to play with.....about 70 mil max to spend.

    Do we spend it in Jan or wait until summer?

    Is Coutinho leaving a given?
    Knowing FSG they'll hold on at least another year or two after the Summer

    Not sure but reckon that the Keita fee was accounted for last window. I would exoect if Phil goes we would have at least £200 million for summer window. That gives us a few options. I would personally be looking at 3/4 top signings. That should impact positively our first team squad options.

    I think it almost definitely is. Forget how good he has become, people are forgetting heís been at the club for 5-6 years now. For a South American player, that is more then a significant period of time at a prem club.

    Transfer windows with this club depress me. I'm not expecting a great deal, put it that way.

    Well given we didnít do enough in either of the last two summers Iím hoping we have money to spend first (ie at least a defender and possibly holding mid in jan), replace cou with a creative player and get a striker in (perhaps go back to rb leipzig with a big offer before someone else grabs Werner), I agree next summer we also need to address the goalkeeper problem we have yet to, Karius was always a gamble. I mean a top keeper to replace mingolet, and even then we probably need another cb in addition to vvd or similar.
    So yeah we need a massive overhaul still, all the above need to be starting players adding depth by pushing the likes of wij and hendo to the bench whilst removing problems like lovren and finally being bold with mingolet. And anyone else who leaves can be replaced

    Keita and Lemar seems to be the plan. You'd still sign another midfielder anyway. Some one to play in behind the pair of them ideally.

    Get rid of Hendo and promote Grujic to the first team. Also draft in Ejaria to the first team squad player.

    We've got no chance with Oblak, but I also thought we had no chance with Keita.

    We've bought Keita with or without selling Phil. They are not mutually exclusive.

    Possibly...we don't know that for sure though.

    Regardless of selling Phil...Keita will need to be paid for at some point...and will affect future budgets.

    We tried to pay for Keita last summer, we tried to also buy Lemar and VVD. We have plenty of money available without selling anyone.

    I think Klopp will try for Goretzka to replace Can and Max Meyer or Lemar to replace Coutinho.

    Pull Firmino into a number 10 position and sign a striker.
