"I wonder if this story has anything to do with the fact we might be losing suarez haha! He's highly rated, but he isn't proven in the premier league. If we sell suarez we must use all the transfer funds to buy quality IF we can attract the right players without european competition!"

"If Suarez we need someone who is experienced and come in and do a job. Yes, we have Sturridge but we need two main strikers. Soldado may not be everyone's favourite but he is proven, he scores goals but his link up play, hold up play and position is excellent. He knows tika taka too and could be a great signing. Different type of player, but a goal threat."

"why would you not use the Suarez cash only if goes sounds like he wants to bad and if correct we will let him with a 55 million pounds then why not try for Hulk a player of his stature really couldn't want to play in Russia another season would think he would see the light want to join a wonderful club like ours and help make us a POWER AGAIN?"

"But also Im sorry but I need to say it If It were me (no offense BR) as know we all have different ideas I would have got Villa when could of I know old but still get 30 in season next 4 yrs easy. let suarez go as he wants to and have got Hugain in the deal plus who we have already and a few others well HI TOP 4 IF NOT HIGHER!!!!!

"Where is all the money going exactly. We didnt invest in the team last summer. We haven't spent any money so far this summer (apart from money made from selling players) so we should be able to invest 40 or 50 mill even before we sell Suarez. Does anyone even want to play for us anymore. Can we find any quality? We can certainly afford it."

"We are all moaning to sign a quality player, proven goal scorer and yet when that player is linked still moaning about being too expensive. Get him please. He can score 20+ goals that will help us finish high which those talented youngsters like bernard etc can't make."

"i'm hesitant to even come on here and read the latest, sick to the stomach of the Suarez scenario. I think everyone at LFC who are trying to make preparations for what looks to be a promising campaign is in disarray, scouser threw and threw I feel our club and city have been dragged through the dirt, and will be very pleased when this is over"

"All we need now is who can score goals and this guy can do that addition to sturidge,colti boy,Aspas and others.the price is not too much compares to his goal ability and we can also add midfield and 1 defender with the money."

"BR changed his style a lot to get Suarez playing to his strengths last season. The style he wants to play, in which we saw Sturridge thrive when Luis got banned at the end of last season would fit right into Soldado's game. I think this would be a great signing, we would also be able to get one more top player, maybe two. Not the end of the world here guys."

"Go get Damiao from International in Brazil he is 23 years old and a top striker.I'm sure he will not be more than 20 mil.Then get Eriksen from Ajax and Dzagoev from Moscow then all LFC need is a decent defender who can play anywhere in back"

"FSG have yet to convince me they are the right people for the job yet i'm still hoping they do but does it ever occur to people that we can't attract top players. We don't have champions league football and we won't pay over the top wages to make up for it (wisely). We can only attract a certain type of player until we show a real move towards the top 4."

"Soldado is a top striker. He can score through any method:heading,volley, long range,close range.He's also great at holding up the ball and offloading it to instigate att/counter att.Would he cut it in the BPL? Yes! He's more than strong enough,he knows where the back of the net is,and he knows how to play his heart out every single game."

"I still believe we will get quality players in but it will be nearer the end of the summer when we see who is left after the champions league clubs and the over spenders have had their pick. We didnt invest last summer nor this one so far so we should still be able to spend 40 - 50 mill add that to 50 for Suarez and we could bid for Messi but would he come? Be realistic."

"I would prefer to get Bernard for £20M if we are going to keep Suarez! Coutinho out left and Bernard out right, Suarez in behind and sturridge up front. Would be a class fron line.Seriously we have only spent £3M. Thus Suarez saga has to be dealt with so we can move forward with signings and getting ready for new season!"

"Kingwillis10 is spot on. Soldado has exactly what we need. Quality all round, plus his finishing is something special. Add vast experience and being a starter in Spain's first XI into the mix and Soldado gets my vote. As worth it as van Persie."

"If FSG and Ayre are good businessmen, then they should invest 40 to 60 mil without waiting to sell Suarez. Look at LFC fan base worldwide. We are one of the biggest in the world. If we play good football with exciting players then merchandise sales and tv money alone can pay back those amount. Not to mention much more money we'll get if we play in CL next season. Be wise....."

"This guy has consistently out-scored negredo,Villa and the other stfikers in Spain except the top two Messi and Ronaldo. He is worth thd money especially if Suarez leaves. The only problem is he might be snapped up by another team before we are ready. I want Suarez to stay however if he is going we need to make sure he is replaced by a world class striker . "

"I notice the mods have removed the bit about Suarez leaving from the full article available at The Telegraph. When Suarez does leave we need an experienced proven goal scorer and this guy would fit the bill. The only questions are will he join and will FSG spend big on a 28 year old? "

Ring any bells,,been linked with erkison..and others but only signed youngsters which is not a bad thing but lets look at the facts it was said early signings were to be signed to get them to gell..so y did the big signings not happen first..no matter Y.N.W.A BR I TRUST"
