Can see mourinho wanting players - however the deals and value are always atrocious in January, hope we avoid it.

Brighton attempting to sign striker Moussa Dembélé for a transfer fee of around £18 million. Can’t see that deal happening at that price.

Huddersfield have signed Monaco defender Terence Kongolo on loan till the end of the season.

Surely there' s got to be better players in the lower leagues worth the risk/chance.

Well, the Coutinho/Barca transfer saga has started right where it left off. Liverpool apparently expecting a mega bid in the coming days.

Personally, I would be gutted if he was sold in this window. Would show a complete lack of ambition by the owners and sort of reaffirm my belief that in terms of transfers, we don't really have the money to spend that is always talked about. Generally we have covered our purchases with sales.(Which i don't necessarily disagree with).

Also, as everyone and their dog point out, Barca are clear in their league already and Coutinho is cup tied. So what really is the point? More time to Gel in terms of next year? Shirt sales? Worried he might have a blinder at the world cup and the already crazy price will rise even further?

Hoping for a Naby Keita style arrangement where the sale is agreed now but he leaves in the summer.

If Liverpool sign an actual good goalkeeper in January and keep Coutinho I may have a little flutter on them as an outside bet for the champions league...

Wouldn't count on it. Would love it, but just don't feel Klopp (for whatever reason) thinks we need one.

I'm guessing Ollys flutter was going to be based on the combination of VVD and a new keeper greatly improving the defence. No doubt it would. However not enough to challenge for the champions league IMO. Hope I'm wrong on that front obviously..

Liverpool won it with Djimi Traore in 2005, although I think the days of the underdogs winning the CL are done for now.

Rafa always has his defence very well organised, unlike klopp. This current Liverpool team would snatch your hand off for another hyppia or carragher

Really glad we spunked away 35m on Danny Drinkwater now... Barkley is definitely worth a punt for 15m - but as a Hazard replacement, no chance.

There's transfer fees are getting ridiculous. Coutinho is a very average player. Barcelona should've invested on Griezmann/Saul/Koke.

As far as I can tell Coutinho was Liverpool's top player and top creative player.  Selling him is like Man City selling de bruyne.  If Liverpool now fail to make top four and go out early in this years Champions League - how much will that cost them?   The transfer for Coutinho is about £105 million with the rest in add-ons (depending on future results including for example Coutinho winning the Ballon D'or).  

However, clearly Coutinho wanted to leave Liverpool having previously put in a transfer request last summer.  So this move was more or less forced onto Liverpool, although I think Liverpool should have done a deal so that Coutinho stayed with Liverpool until the summer.  Barcelona have already more or less won La Liga and Coutinho cannot play Champions League Football for Barcelona this season having already played for Liverpool.  I don't think Liverpool will be able to replace him with a like for like, especially not in this transfer window.

Liverpool are already losing Emre Can as he refused to sign a contract extension and runs his contact down so that he can leave in the summer on a free.  So it seems that players not wanting to play for Liverpool are having an effect on Liverpool.

Not wanting to play for Liverpool does probably affect Liverpool.

No reason to worry about selling mid-season. Wouldn’t have been better to sell him late in summer, gave them a chance to try get a season from him and they certainly got a good half of this season. He wanted to go and they probably promised him the move in time. Using the money already for Van Dijk whilst having Mane, Salah and Firmino with Lallana there and Keita coming.

Done this quietly this time and less disturbance to the side than both a protracted drama or a player who was angered by being made to stay.

Be interesting where they go. Few players they could get and develop into what they need, and maybe ones that are more beneficial to their team balance. Reckon there’s a few heralded and less heralded players out there who could be very good signings

Not sure who the move benefits on January.

Coutinho can't play cl, Barca will probably win la liga anyway (dembele back now too).

Counting not guaranteed regular football and has to settle into a new team, country and league 6 months before the World Cup?

Liverpool without him for cl knock outs and league run in. Won't replace him in January.

Bizarre in my opinion.

Liverpool still have Lallana, Salah, Mane, Origi, Sturridge, Firmino,oxalde-chamberlain in there squad.
So whilst there losing a good player, they have cover for the rest of the season.

Funnily enough, I think you’ve put two negatives there Ent that I think are positives.

Won’t play in CL - don’t think he expects to win it with Liverpool or cares about playing 2-4 games extra in it. Also, probably means he plays almost entirely regularly in the league because they won’t ever rest him for the CL (obviously)

Further to that, they’re gonna win the league in an easier league physically, so he’s probably going to be better rested for the World Cup.

Further to all that, I think he was promised the move and did a lot for them so far this season, especially with them getting through CL group stages and they’re now sure that Salah is settled and works whilst Lallana is also fit.

Also think Coutinho will be smart enough to know the opportunity could go away. Injury, bad World Cup, better player becoming available etc.

I kind of think they wanted to make sure they’d bought their two main targets, Keita and Van dijk, before they got the Coutinho money. Mahrez on top too would be a bonus

True but they've just paid half of that fee for a good pl defender. Not like you can't pick up a top player for 30-40 million anymore and they'd be kitting out half their team with class for that money.

Arsenal laughed to the bank for the £35m + £5m for the very ordinary Oxlande-Chamberlain. Lallana, Mane, Origi, Sturridge and Firmino aren'y anyway neat top class. As for Salah after this purple patch season don't be surprised if Real Madrid don't nab him in the summer.

You can argue it whichever way you want, I think they would still want him i the summer. Now he has to move country, learn a new language, adjust to a new team and league - probably not be first choice. All before the World Cup, move doesn't make sense for any party involved at this stage in my opinion.

Not saying they are better or the same (though Salah's been very good this year), point is that they have cover the get them through this season.

coutinho on his day can be world class, just never delivered for large parts of the season. he'd have a few spurts. but i do think he will look better in a better team in Barcelona and playing in a league that is easier for attacking players

dont think liverpool will be able to replace him but they do have enough attacking ability in the side to cover for the loss. they wont be as good without him but liverpool need to improve elsewhere first if they want to challenge (which they have started with vvd). i wouldn't even bother trying to sign a replacement

Pretty gutted about this, although it seems to be 11m up front rising to 14m with add ons. One of the pitfalls of paying for previous awful windows (and for failing to get promoted with the second highest championship wage bill ever last year).

Pritchard will do well in the PL I think - could be what Huddersfield need to win games with teams around them

I think it’s in Arsenal’s interests to let him go, although interesting whether they feel selling to City is better cos they’re closer to United, or United is better because they stop City buys JH everyone and get Mkhi.

Also, if it forces Arsene’s hand to buy Malcom, and they get Mkhi, be interesting to see if that convinced Ozil to stay. Also might allow them to offload Walcott

That negative bar button is the worst inclusion on this forum since off-topic was allowed as current affairs.

Man United linked to Sanchez, Vardy and Hernandez. We’re clearly keen on getting rid of Hernandez and we have abandoned all hope of attacking and needed to sign him two years ago when we were a striker short of something special

They should just have the up button and leave it at that.   Elsewhere other chat sites started off having both voting up and voting down buttons but then deactivated the down buttons - because eventually each chat site is left with a few core participants and the down button is then only used to aggravate the remaining core participants resulting in fewer and fewer participants followed by a dead chat site.

do you lot really care if a post is voted down?

as for sanchez going to united, cant see it. while he'd be a upgrade he's yet another player who plays on the left and cuts inside. would rather see rashford/martial develop in that role than a 29 year old who'd probably pack in the prem in a couple of years, although mourinho being able to develop them is a whole other issue.

could he play on the right? probably, but he wouldn't be as effective. and neither are martial or rashford on that side. seems like a lot of uniteds recent signings. big money high profile players who dont necessarily fit into a system in place

he'll be off to city anyway
