Liverpool will be spending that on ; Can £10m, Lambert £4m, Lollana £25m, Lovren £22.5m
I don't think it's the best of spending...
Plus some Belgian lad being loaned straight back to where we got him from possibly.
I'm not fussed about Suarez going but the Barca thing irks me mildly because a) they were supposed to be banned from transfer activity, had that suspended awaiting an appeal so they'll buy shedloads of players this summer ahead of a ban and b) just wait until Suarez's suspension is reduced after he joins them.
The main positive is that Liverpool had between 30 and 50 million to spend this summer thanks to the new tv deal so the Suarez fee just boosts that. Assorted local journos say other transfers are in the pipeline but we'll see.
As for the players already bought...Don't know enough about Can to really comment but apparently he's versatile enough to play DM and in defence which is something Liverpool need, Lambert - 4million quid backup striker who'll provide an option Liverpool didn't have last season, Lovren (assuming he does sign) - decent enough centre half, the only one that I'm not sure about is Lalalalalana. It's not STELLAR but it's not shit - basically strengthening the squad, not a lot wrong with the forward line, even without Suarez.
