    • That's number 3 (counting Kolo Toure which will be July 1) out of a potential 4-5 more, and the most popular / likely names..

      - Simone Mignolet, GK Sunderland (9-11M)
      - Christian Atsu, RW FC Porto (3-4M)
      - Henrikh Mkhitaryan, CAM Shakhtar Donetsk (23M)
      - Tiago Llori, CB Sporting Lisbon (5M)
      - LB ?
      - CM/CDM ?
      - CB ?

      If we are able to bring in all of the above, which may reach the 60-75M region, before talking about sales, that would be quite a successful summer, one we haven't had in any recent time I can recall..

      • Whilst it feels like we have been splashing about, £7.5m for Aspas and £8m for Alberto only takes us to the Carroll money back out there. Toure probably takes up Carra's salary so it just looks like good business rather then crazy expenditure. I think it is probably quite a safe bet that Aspas and Alberto combined are only picking up Carroll's wages alone.
        Great work thus far, Mignolet will be dusted off this week and that will be the first actual cost, keep it up backroom boys!

      • I wouldn't call it successful until we see them play Jason.

        We've had more players arriving at Liverpool than almost any other club I believe and they have cost a pretty penny too. Far too much.

        I'll take some encouragement in that the club seems to relatively consistent in the type of players they're looking at right now. It will be interesting to see who will be leaving.
