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.

Yeah he would be unreal. Probably like a lot of people, I really thought we would need a player like sarr or chukwesze who can beat men for fun, but actually under rodgers, players that keep the ball and drift into scoring positions would probably work a lot better.

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. 

FWIW Olmo's agent said recently that he would only consider moving to a team that's in the Champions League next season.

Well that was short lived! lol ferran torres? Think he would be good as he is essentially the next on the line of good Spanish prospects.

Brais Mendez has a £22m release clause.

If maguire does go, would like us to have a look at rugani. Would be 5th choice at juve next season, so presumably available for the right price, but is very promising and is capable of bringing the ball out from the back while being able to do the chiellini sh*thousery.

Sarri likes Rugani from his time at Empoli, so he’ll probably get a lot of minutes for Juve. Demiral is more likely to be their 5th choice. They just signed him but he’s being linked with a move away to AC Milan. Sounds like he is available.

 

Turkish international, so maybe he’d link up well with Soyuncu.

Yeah I heard about demiral to Milan, reportedly they are looking for 40m euros after paying about 16m for his buyout just a few weeks ago which would be excellent business. Would like us to maybe go for someone with a tad more experience as demiral would be very similar to soyuncu and benkovic in that he is a decent prospect at this level.

 

Hopefully they try and fund that move to Milan by offloading suso to us! :ph34r:

All the talk seems to point towards us signing a winger and another CAM, imo we should be looking at a striker also. We are only a Vardy injury away from being pretty screwed up top, Iheanacho isn't good enough and Perez is at his best when playing either off a striker or wide of one. 

 

We need to be looking at a backup to Vardy, either that or integrate Slimani back into the first team? :dunno:

Rodgers was asked after the Cheltenham game where Perez's best position is, and he says he's a central striker that can play wide. That to me says he's going into the season with Vardy, Ayoze and Iheanacho as his forwards, with Ayoze able to cover elsewhere as a kind of Fabio Borini at Liverpool type player. 

 

Kelechi has been ripping it up in training, 4 goals in the last practice match in Évian, and I get the feeling this season is his last chance before we go all out for a striker next summer.

 

Cover for Maddison, a wide player, and a Maguire replacement and that will be us done I reckon.

We will most certainly get in another creative midfielder of some sort. Don't forget there are between 6-9 players we are trying to shift on as well, and although transfer fees for them all will be impossible there will be funds coming in. We still want more players.

They’ll be two more regardless I think. A winger and a back up for the Tielemans/Maddison pairing in case one gets injured.

In an ideal world i’d love to see us sign a striker. But with Perez being able to play centrally it makes the wings and option at CM the priority imo. It will be strange to not have a striker on the bench though. 

 

Vardy was available for 34 games last year and I think we can expect a similar return again. 

 

So we only really need a striker to come in for the cup games. Maybe this is where Rodgers will give one of the youth lads a chance such as Eppiah, Reghba or Hirst.

Would suggest that Muskwe would be closer to the first team than the names just reeled off, or Thomas if we wanted to play him just behind a striker maybe.

3 of those were for his straight red - I can see him being more disciplined this season.

Zouma would be a cool signing if we for some reason don’t have faith in soyuncu and benkovic if Maguire is to leave.

A lot of injury concerns with him though, and unlikely Chelsea would sell

If Gray is here I do wonder if Vards gets an injury he wouldn’t try him or Perez up front.
