You forgot Big Wes.  He is still here and club captain to boot!

Oh I'm keeping him around of course. But I wouldn't consider him backup to either of Soyuncu/Evans over Amartey/Benkovic. Him, Matty James, and a select few didn't make the 2nd 11

Total ass  hat of an article, but it mentions us (And Everton) with regards to Lucas Ocampos

 

https://sportslens.com/everton-eyeing-up-a-move-for-lucas-ocampos/270496/

If Everton are interested we've got no chance, which has always been the case in recent years, but I wonder if the tide is turning?

Attacking midfield definitely sounds like he means a no.8 rather than a winger. I suppose if Ayoze and Ricardo play like they did last night across the season, there'll be no need for a wide player, although I'd then say that leaves us short for options off the bench up top - we'd still be bringing on Gray, Albrighton and Iheanacho to try and change games.

 

I wonder if it might, therefore, be someone that can play both no.8 and out wide, the obvious candidate being Hakim Ziyech. Then we have good cover for Maddison, but they can also come on when Barnes or Ayoze are ineffective. Rafinha from Barcelona?

We have already done some amazing business this transfer window.. But can stretch the budget a bit more for any of theses players.

 

Hakim Ziyech

Nabil Fekir

memphis depay 

Leon Bailey

 

Any of the above players add goals assists and surly takes into the top 6 or better.

I highly, highly doubt Ziyech is going to come to us to play off the bench. He's better than Maddison. If we're signing anyone it will be some backup like Praet or Amiri.

Go get Brais Mendez and we can shut the fcukin window.

His form in the second half of the season makes me dubious about him.

But he wouldn't come and play off the bench, he'd be a start. I think if we are going to get another out of this world attacking midfielder it'll be someone with the skill set that can play out wide or in a midfield 3 such as Ziyech or Brais Mendez. If one of those signed you could see the following sort of system

 

Schmeichel

 

Ricardo

Evans

Maguire

Chilwell

 

Ziyech/Mendez

Ndidi

Tielemans

 

Perez

Vardy

Maddison

 

Ziyech and Maddison may swap in terms of who plays higher up the pitch. I can see Rodgers wanting versatile creative midfielders which is what a lot of the elite sides do. They all play 4-3-3 but not many of their midfielders are traditional wingers anymore, they are gifted attacking midfielders with close control and skill that operate anywhere across the attacking areas but can also drop deep and dictate play.

I'd rather play Ziyech ahead of Maddison in that scenario, but I take your point.

Makes sense seemed to be doing a bit up until January. 

Celta Vigo were such a strange team last season, likewise Villareal. Both have some amazing young talent in their sides and yet both looked destined to go down for a large part of the season.

I find La Liga is very much like this even both the Madrid sides at times have looked like that. I think it’s fair to say in La Liga there is huge inconsistency in performances.

Feel like they want someone who can play multiple positions like Pérez. Someone who could play out wide but also as an 8. Can also fit different roles in different systems to allow a lot of flexibility which I think Rodgers really likes.

I reckon Hakan Calhanoglu might be an option. Signed by Hamburg when Congerton was technical director; we sent a scout to Milan in May to watch their game against Frosinone, supposedly for him. They've set the asking price at €20m (about £18m) according to Italian press this morning.

 

25 so a similar age to the likes of McGregor and Praet that have been linked. Played 22 games on the left wing, 14 in central midfield last season, 3 goals and 6 assists.

Nooooooo please no. Believe me, we really don't want him. And he'd cost a ton.

Dani olmo/ferran torres and sanson for me to finish the window unless we go for another cb. Gives us loads of options and with Perez and barnes, another clever player on the wing would be brilliant to drift inside looking for goals while our full backs bomb on.

Olmo would be a sensational signing, one of those players like Mendez or Ziyech that can play out wide, number 10, 8 or in a midfield 3 either deeper or supporting the main striker.

 

We have been linked before.
