    If the rumours are true about Fekir's asking price dropping to around 15-20m I think he's worth the gamble. Could play as an attacking mid and could also fill in for Bobby. Might even be able to play on the left of the front 3 similar to Coutinho did before he left.

    Wages probably still about £7/8m a season , does any club want to risk over a 4 year contract about £50m

    I’d guess some might try to sign him on a free in Jan to bring the cash risk down

    Yeah the wages are a fair point, but I think the way we heavily
    incentivise the contracts could work. Knowing the prep we put into scouting and recruitment I think it would be strange if we weren't interested at a low transfer value

    We’re probably waiting until January and sign him on a free or for a very low fee for the second half of the season

    I'd say someone will snap him up before then. Lyon won't want to lose him for nothing.

    Fekir is the obvious one considering that we were keen before so not surprising to see him linked again but the medical issue from last time might still scare the club off doing it.
    I'm not even certain we need another attacking midfielder, I'm a fan of Shaqiri and still believe he will come good for us, just happening quite slowly for him but that's not unusual with Klopp's signings. It takes time.
    I know it wont happen but I like Maddison from Leicester by the way. Diving git but a really tidy creative young player and he handled the step up from Norwich to Leicester effortlessly.
    I think he'll go on to play for one of the top clubs. Would cost stupid money though and probably not even on our radar.

    I don't honestly see us doing a lot of transfer activity this Summer. It's an excellent squad now and Klopp never seemed the type to buy for the sake of it.
    A left back should be a priority to cover for Andy coz we were lucky he didn't miss many games and Millie ain't gonna have the legs for LB role much longer. So we need cover there.
