Nabil Fekir: The Perfect Fourth Man?

Nabil Fekir: The Perfect Fourth Man?

Liverpool are on the march to Kiev. Amidst the blitzkrieg of goals, celebrations and stunning attacking tsunamis, however, is quite the stark realisation. Liverpool got to the Champions League final off the back of a scintillating, devastating, and unparalleled front three, with a lion tamer of a manager orchestrating their rise to potential infamy. But there needs to be a fourth. Phil Coutinho once rounded out the quartet, and the signing of Mohamed Salah was an excellent one solely for …
Options a-plenty for Klopp in search for wide-man

Options a-plenty for Klopp in search for wide-man

Jurgen Klopp wants to buy a goal-scoring winger. He hasn't told me this personally, nor has he said it publicly, but based on his targeting of Leroy Sane, Ousmane Dembele and possibly Mario Gotze and Sadio Mane, it seems a certainty that Klopp wants to add more goals into the trio who play behind his lone striker.

They seem to forget the Reds made their name turning players into stars. The signing of Philippe …

Alexandre Lacazette - A Season-Defining Transfer Rumour

Linked with moves to Ligue 1 Champions PSG, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette was possibly the hottest property of the 2015 summer. The chairman of Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas, came out in May and seemed to imply if a club were to prise his star asset away from the club it would be for north of £40 million. Coming off the back of his most successful season to date it wasn't such a delusional …
