In truth I don't expect much activity from us in the next mercato as we bought a lot of new players and we are top on the table with a considerably large squad for just 2 competitions(@Coppa ain't that many games).
Mancio said he doesn't want to sell his current players...

Liverpool yet to agree deal for Marko Grujic as Stuttgart make £5m bid
Liverpool have yet to agree a deal for Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic.

The 19-year-old is understood to have held talks with club representatives and is keen on a move to Anfield, with Liverpool's outline proposal a £4.3m offer plus the player remaining on loan until at least the summer.

However, Stuttgart have made a £5m offer plus bonus payments and Inter Milan are also interested in the Serbia Under 21 international.

Liverpool are understood to have held talks with Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic

Asked about his future last week, Grujic said: 'I'll try to respect the club, the fans and the general public, but again I think that for myself I have to choose the best environment where I get the chance to play and where I work with good coaches in good conditions.

'It is certain that I remain here until the end of qualifying for the Champions League. I had a talk with Liverpool but I did not receive yet any agreement. I'm still a Red Star player.'

Grujic, who has five goals to his name this season, made his first-team debut at the age of 17 in 2013 after coming through Red Star's youth academy.

Baselli or Cataldi or Soriano or Banega instead of Guarin pls!
Moutinho would be a dream though

However not gonna happen anyway... Mancini loves Guarin :palm:

I don't see how we need someone instead of Guarin right now, we have Brozovic and Kondogbia. I'd like to sell Guarin too, but I would rather focus on giving more room to Gnokouri or buying another DM that's better than Medel or Melo.

Why DM?! We have Medel and Melo...they don't play together most times anyway.
Guarin on the bench with his wages is a waste of valuable funds...we buy one of those mentioned above and give them half less or even less wages than Guarin is getting...and I'm sure they will perform waaay better.
Maybe not this season but if we manage to get to CL...Brozo,K-Dog,Gnokouri and a new CM...
They will probably loan out Goku anway...just wait and see

I think we still could use a DM that's at a higher level than Melo (who is older) or Medel (who will never be a consistent passer under pressure). Don't get me wrong they both serve a purpose right now and our helping us win games, but I still think this is a position we can do better in. Our CM position I think we should give some time to see how Brozovic and Kondogbia grow and make them the starters.

See. Thatdude understands. Melo and Medel are both good, but they aren't really high-tier. Next season a new DM should be here.

Yes,yes, I can see why people want a new DM for next season...Mancini loves to have a lot of them too...I would go for Matic if Chelsea don't wake up and we reach CL or maybe Krychowiak or Gonalons.

No for Gonalons. I know, I know, I talked the guy up last season but he was playing like the best DM in the league at the time. Amazing for OL in the first half of the season, definitely their most influential player alongside Lacazette. He had a bit of a drop off midseason and it gradually got worse, he's been really below par this season. His struggles look mental to me because I've seen him in beast mode. Right now, it's almost like he doesn't seem as confident or motivated and his concentration is poor, moving here could push him harder but I don't think we should take that risk. He was given a starting spot and a lot of responsibility at a very young age with no competition/pressure, I don't think he's developed at all since 2013 and if anything based on his performances this year it generally looks like he has regressed. He's always been criticized as passive, many fans think he doesn't have enough ambition for rejecting moves away from the club, I think he's a good example of how not pushing a young talent hard enough can affect development (it's usually the other way around when the young player isn't being given a chance). I like his personality because he's pure class and he's a talented player, but the gamble wouldn't be worth it for us. Most people are calling for him to give up the captaincy.

We should be going after Xhaka, not Biglia nor Banega.

I'll take Xhaka even over Kroos, the Swiss is gonna be worldclass, he's already close to that level.

Fotze would be a great lastname. Kinda like a nephew to Götze.

Someone here knows German!

Also, Xhaka is really good, but preferring him to Kroos is ridiculous.

Kroos costs a bit too much, wages and price, at least for us.
