Youri Tielemans: A Potential Liverpool Target?

For the second time in consecutive seasons, Leicester City missed out on Champions League football on the last day of the season. The Foxes knew that they needed to beat Spurs -- as well as relying on results going their way in the Liverpool and Chelsea games -- by a big margin in order to finish inside the top four.

The aforementioned three were signed for significantly small amounts, whilst Mane will cost £30million or more. How much money Jurgen Klopp was given to invest in his Liverpool …

DoF Fantasy Series Part 3: How I'd spend £100m at Liverpool

Today I came across an idea - or rather stole it from the AnfieldIndex guys, in particular it was an article written by @SamMcGuire90 which you can read here. Basically he was told to think like a Director of Football or Sports Director - or whatever name you want to use for that exact position - and concentrate only on the transfer aspect of it, leaving all the boring organisational stuff behind. He was also told to work with a budget of £100m but …
