How would you improve the team in January?

Recommended Posts

Nice little summative update on SSN:

 

RODGERS: NO TRANSFERS IMMINENT 

 

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers says there are no imminent done deals at the club and gave updates on Hamza Choudhury and Islam Slimani.

 

He said: "There’s a couple things going on behind the scenes, but nothing imminent. We’re looking across the squad where we can improve. But I don’t think this will be a month with lots of activity. This is a tough window. But if we can, we will.

 

“No [on Choudhury going on loan]. We don’t want to weaken our squad, which is important for us in this window, so we will be keeping the players we want to keep here. If we can strengthen and add one or two then great. If not, then every player that is here is going to be very important from now until the end of the season.

 

“It would have to go through the club [any Tottenham interest in Slimani]. Slim’s on loan [at Monaco] and is there for the season. Any club that is interested would have to come through the club.”

 

Sounds like it's the typical 'irons in the fire' situation to me. Hopefully a winger is on the radar (Olmo?) and CB is a nice to have with Benkovic in the squad now.

 

Interesting there's no loans out though for any youth players. Maybe nearer the end of the window?

Haven’t seen it anywhere else, but surely Shaquiri would improve the team for a relatively low investment. 
 

28, international, available...

 

...and better than what we have.

The " available " part is where you are mistaken, Klopp won't let him go until the summer.

Really? I thought I read that he wouldn't let him go out on loan.

 

Either way - I still think he would be better than what we currently have

Something about him being available for €30m but only in the summer. Klopp doesn't want to risk any decision that could hamper them winning the title, seems a little over the top but they haven't won it for 30 years. 

 

Shaqiri is half decent, I still want better.

not consistent enough for me. Just an older version of Grey, in the way that he can be an absolute game changer on his day but can then go missing for  a few games.

Find it amazing how people expect another Mahrez or some comparable amazing winger/inside forward to just rock up and start producing :blink:

Oi, hands off!  He leaves Glasgow over my dead body this window lol

 

If he's going to play out wide he's far more comfortable off the left side as opposed to the right.

What on earth has happened to him? Last season he was the hottest striker in Europe, along with Jovic.

Maybe we learn a lesson and don't rush to sign players based on 6-12 months of form? :p

 

Anyone remember Michu?

It's certainly something to factor in, but then applying that would mean not going for someone like Haland who has just gone to Dortmund. Sometimes you have to take a punt on highly progressive players.

Sensible

  • Marc Oliver Kempf for CB (Currently at VfB Stuttgart, so should be obtainable) or
  • Robin Koch for CB (Frieburg, so would know Caglar), and
  • Save the Winger/Inside Forward question until the Summer

Oh absolutely. If a young kid bursts onto the scene and looks a class above then it's always worth having a look. I'm sure I read that Walsh suggested Haaland to Everton a few seasons back, I wonder if he was still with us, whether we'd have picked him up at the time like we did with Kapustka.

 

Mbappe and Haaland looked like natural world beaters as soon as they've come into football. So jealous of Dortmund for signing him. I really hope we can become something similar to them if we manage a few seasons of top 4 finishes.

 

I suppose I mean more with players that have been knocking around first team football for a few years at least and suddenly have an incredible 6-12 months. In Piatek's defence, the team he's playing for looks absolute trash at the minute.

I couldn't help feel like Walsh was exaggerating on that, Haland hadn't even joined Molde when he claimed he had suggested Haland for Everton and the fees he was quoted as saying backed that up. I've long thought Walsh was a bit of a bullshitter in the press.

If Villa go down I'd take Mings in the summer. Has looked good for a year now and everytime I see him he seems ok with the ball at his feet.

I thought the exact opposite at the KP recently. Big & strong yes but played oofball during most of that game - he should have been watching Evans who gave him a master class that night. Overrated.

In this 1-1draw a couple of weeks back? I thought Mings was the best player on the pitch and kept them in the game as the main man in defence.

Milan want shot of Suso, I reckon we could squeeze them for a loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Stop it, the hope will kill us all 😄

The fact that he might have been their best player does not say a great deal. Yes he was able to head crosses clear and generally clear the ball out into the stand but for me he did not look a controlled centre back on that evening at all. I’d be hugely disappointed if he was on our radar going forward.

There are some moderately big fish reportedly swimming in those waters, so even if we were interested (and there are no links that I'm aware of) it'd still be a longshot.

Similar to when we got Tielemens then?

We were at least linked to Tielemans for several days before we closed that deal.
