Lol how do you know what Klopp thinks they need, or how he plans to rejig his midfield?

On top of that Gravenberch was one of the highest rated youngsters only a couple of years ago, he's had a poor time at Bayern but he's clearly talented. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if he excels for Klopp.
On the other hand, he couldn't make the step up from eredivise to bundesliga. The Premier league is a step up from the bundesliga as well.

They were after lavia and Caicedo, who are different profile midfielders.

They have no midfielder who enables them to fully utilise their fullbacks. I could be wrong though.

If the Saudi’s really want him, and they really want to keep their league in the headlines, then they’re still likely to offer huge sums in January. Liverpool don’t have time to replace him, so they can afford to wait and do it January or next summer.

Possibly, perhaps they are hoping that salah kicks up a fuss.
What to lower the fee cos they are skint?

Doesn't make sense. Money is no object yet they've left it until now, why? Because they want it to be the biggest story on a day that gets world wide media coverage is my guess.

Possibly, however it will just fall into the ether as another hypothetical transfer. Like the failed attempt for Mbappe.

That's long forgotten.

I'm happy if Liverpool reject and salah loses his head a bit.

Liverpool turning down £150 million for Salah seems the wrong move. He's 31 and has 2 years on his contract. Still a great player but that is a lot of money.

Unless Liverpool think they will come back with £200 million. The company building their new stand have just gone into administration and there are loans to FSG that need paying off. There is no way Levy turns either amount down and I dont think FSG are miles behind how Levy thinks about things.

Its insane money for a 31 year old, who relies on pace and acceleration.

Forest love signing players. Eight in and more to come apparently.

Naby Keita was highly rated too. No guarantees.

I could see them offering 150 again next summer.

I'm really surprised we've not seen United make a statement signing, half expected them to pull out at least one "big" player. I mean, I guess it's not over yet but, so far, I'd be pretty anxious as a fan of a team that's traditionally trading transfer blows with City, Bayern and Madrid.

I suppose, if the club is about to change hands, then big injections of cash would be hugely unlikely, but it's almost as if they're trying to do the absolute bare minimum.
