Liverpool are ‘paying’ for not freshening up the attack, so an attacker would be good. Whether the Fekir deal will be resurrected I don’t know? But there has to be some pragmatism as January is a difficult window. Off the top of my head as to who else might be realistically available, he might be getting on a bit now, but I’ve always rated Dzeko. Not sure he’s a Klopp player though. But he always came up with a goal in the big moments and his scoring stats are very impressive. Could be a great relatively cheap impact player.
Problem I see for Pool is a bit similar to the Spuds, when fit I would imagine Salah, Mane and Gnasher would be 1st choice, going to a very confident player (or bloody expensive!) who would want to fight for a spot against that lot. Plus, no idea about Pool’s wallet, but even with the Wee Phil money, got to be a bit empty hasn’t it?
Banjo, ideally we need first team competition for those front 3. Several teams have now learnt to somewhat nullify them, so we need something different up there. Probably not much to spend though after the summer outlay as you say.
I’d be very happy if we brought in Ake and got rid of Smalling and/or Jones. Really like Ake. I saw him in a youth game for Chelsea against Utd a few years back and he was the best player on the pitch. He’s really developed well.
Other than that, I don’t know who we could get in. We need so many players replacing to even think about challenging
