Klopp  on Sanchez. Nothing to say about the numbers but I can’t imagine that City have left the race because of money. 

For me that suggests there is going to be more to the story......

Benteke seems the latest option linked. Honestly do rate him. Good option from the bench, on his day a very good player, holds up the ball well and can score. 

 

Has only played well under Paul Lambert and then when Villa were counter-attacking. Would be risky.

Ironically, a transfer ban probably wouldn’t hurt us as much as it would 10 years ago.

A ban can’t come soon enough given some of the players we've been linked with.

Speaking of Lamberts, Rickie Lambert would also fit the profile of player we are looking for. Over 6ft, past it, used to play for Liverpool - just like Carroll, Benteke, and Crouch

...or would Troy McClure be a more suitable fit 😜

Reports on twitter along this line (no word on Dzeko though):

Quote

Chelsea are close to an agreement with Roma over a £22 million move for full-back Emerson Palmieri. Emerson will be offered a long term contract and Chelsea will pay £17.6m up front with a further £4.4m in performance-related add-ons. (Goal) #CFC

Have just looked at Palmieri's career stats - 3 goals and 4 assists across 65 appearances. I appreciate those numbers aren't the be all and end all of the position but they don't fill me with confidence.

Kezza   

Gone are the days of signing the likes of Eto'o as backups strikers. Those were really viable quality back up options then.
