Said to a guy at work today,  Moutinho style signing or two is exactly what we need. Someone with a bit of class and experience who can help on the pitch with game management.

Pedro would be a good match, Fellaini (not that I have ever rated him as such) could be another. Also in defence we need a John Terry to help the young lads out.

Chester could be that player if he ever gets back to fitness.

Up front, Glenn Murray/Javier Hernandez/Defoe (Iím struggling??) but someone again with a bit of nous who knows what they are doing up there.

Eric Dier for midfield? We need premier league experience. Pedro too.

A player who is not suited to a lone striker role.
So thatís Giroud Pedro and now Batashayi from The Chelsea misfit squad all linked.

Let's take all three. Although I would still prefer Cavani to Giroud.

Only chance of getting Batshuayi is if Chelsea go out and sign a big-money striker elsewhere.

I think itís the other way round.

I don't. They will spend now that they can. They couldn't spend a penny in the summer and Lampard will have a list of players he wants.

The trouble they'll have - same as ourselves - is finding a striker. They'll have to bring someone in before letting someone go.

Which they probably will. Lampard doesn't seem to rate him and they can now sign players again.

I've just looked at Batshuayi's record and he's hardly played - is he always injured? Not exactly prolific but has scored against big teams and knows the league - it's a yes from me. £22M if Palace want him apparently - too rich for their blood as they would surely have to find a home for Benteke if they did want him.

Is it worth tapping Origi up?

Waste of time and effort, Klopp adores him.
