Rising Stars. Make sure the scouts know...

who should we be looking at... sensible, affordable, and not a risky punt.

christian eriksen. midfield, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_Eriksen

Munian. left winger, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iker_Muniain

Dries Mertens. striker, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dries_Mertens

Interesting. Looks a good player, much more of an undiscovered gem than many that are mentioned.

Will be one of the more intriguing aspects of the next two transfer windows to see if we go for bargain signings or better known ones. The best examples of how the former can do work are Wisdom, Suso and Sterling all bought in form small amounts from lesser teams (am I right in thinking all by Rafa?).

im sure there are a few more names and links you lads can throw into the mix.
it doesnt matter if they are a virtual unknown world beater, or a sizzler from a lower club that will become a world beater in a couple of years.

get them added

Aluko is absolutely class for City, scored twice already today.

I don't think the first 3 on your list would be affordable Baitman.

And Mertens is 25 now, so I think he is just a star. Not rising.

i stuck them on to get the thread started and they we mentioned elsewhere, so were were fresh in my mind. nto too much like fantasy football, 50m for falcoa, etc, but would be fucking great though, eh

im sure there are some decent players that would add to the team. what about the burnley brickie...

Fantastic, I never thought I'd see Aluko mentioned on a Liverpool forum

He was an Aberdeen player for years and was really patchy, he has some skills on him, and can run at pace - but there's a reason he ended up at Aberdeen - he has never been consistent. He is maybe about 10% of a Liverpool player, no better than Ecclestone.

He tore Bayern Munich (de Michelis and van Buyten) to shreds in Aberdeen's 2007 UEFA Cup home match. That ended up 2-2, best performance I had seen from an Aberdeen player in years.

But a Liverpool player? No.Where.Near

Wilfried Bony. striker. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilfried_Bony

I have not seen enough of Loic Remy to form a proper opinion although he has looked handy enough in the few games i have seen him play for France.

Wilfried Bony on the other hand i have seen a fair bit of this season and I really hope we do NOT go for him. he has been playing well for Vitesse but when you actually watch him play he really is not that different from the type of player Andy Carroll is, the main difference being he is playing in Holland where he has alot more time on the ball, you can even see that in the short youtube comp. of him this season, so many of his goals come from casually shrugging off the defender and blasting it home. personally, i doubt premierleague defenders would be brushed off as easily or whether they would give him that extra half a second to get his shot off.

If Carroll is too imobile to fit into Rodgers system, then i fail to see how Wilfried would, both are very strong players with great shots on them but i don't think they are complete enough players with enough quality to help suarez.

We have also been briefly linked with Min-Son, he's decent, but i doubt HSV would let him go and in any case he is more of a wide forward! perhaps one for the future

I can't comment on his consistency generally but since he left Aberdeen he seems to have become a pretty regular scorer. Maybe he's just developed since you saw him a lot?

Gary Hooper. stiker. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Hooper

celtic signed him from scunthorpe for 2.4m. maybe taking a bit of a punt, but there are a few players out there who could be had for not too much, maybe a little raw, but they certainly know where the back of the net if...

KRISTOFFER AJER
21 year old, 6ft 6" from Norway, plays at centre back for celtic.

we should have been more forward thinking and bought VVD from Celtic, Southampton paid them 13m, and two years later we paid southampton 75m.
This could be our chance to be ahead of the game for a change.

'Leicester City are planning a 20m move for Celtic's 21-year-old Norwegian defender Kristoffer Ajer in January. (90min)'

The ideal would be us buying him while still not quite the finished article, then loaning him out for a year.
