Argentine paper claims LFC is bidding GBP5.7M for Lucas Alario but faces competition from Inter, Ajax and Palermo. River Plate is sticking out for GBP8.5M but none of the clubs are willing to pay that much. Physically about the same size as Suarez, a good header and hitting 10 goals in 19 games so far, will he be the next Latin sensation to hit Anfield and what does that mean for Benteke’s future at LFC? Interesting to watch developments at LFC this summer indeed!!

It said 23 años so with my poor Spanish I’m guessing he’s 23 years old.
But my question is, is he the finished product we are looking for? Or is he another young player project who we hope will develop but if not we can profit a few million on?
A couple projects a year are okay if that 15-20 million spent turns into 30-50 million 2-3 years later each time. It’s good business.
But we need ready now players to make the next step

Think we need to have a balance of ready made players and young projects, some who will make it and others that will be sold off for a smaller profit.

Saw his goals, he looks solid, but the league that he is playing in right now is no where near to what PL is, Lazar Markovic is injury prone, if we can sell him and get the money that River Plate is asking for, we should definitely take a chance with Alario… while we are on this topic… what about J Ibe, I think he has a lot to learn, wouldn’t it be nice if Ajax takes him on loan and when he comes back he will be a better player for us… !?

Ibe definitely needs playing time in a good coaching system. Something where he could learn the technical side more and not just try to use his speed to knock it past the defender and try to get to the byline. Also some end product would be nice to.
Shopping a loan to Ajax would be great

Think Enrique s contract run out this summer, so don’t think he’ll be contributing to the fund. Think those two others won’t be the only ones to move out this summer.
