Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season.

No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

This title race is killing you, admit it. All the times Liverpool were buried in sixth, meagre and irrelevant seem like the golden days of old compared to the ninety-minute-long heart attack Liverpool fans are forced to endure on a weekly – sometimes bi-weekly – basis. Bring Hodgson back, for God’s sake. Seeing as that’s unlikely, and seeing as Liverpool are firmly stuck in a title race in which they have to make up the ground, the nerves have manifested …

There’s a good reason Monaco’s price tag is yet to waver from the €90 million mark – that is the reflection of his importance to Leonardo Jardim’s side. Though a winger by position, Lemar’s dribbling ability and creative incision are belied by a willingness to do the hard yards, and …
