Would replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago make Liverpool stronger?

Would replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago make Liverpool stronger?

A quiet summer is expected at Liverpool, as Jurgen Klopp again remains content with his squad, give or take the odd departure or new face. Former Southampton trio Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana have all moved on, having become symbols of Liverpool's past, while Norwich's Jamal Lewis could be a rare addition in the coming weeks. If there are two soap operas that may provide Reds supporters with some transfer drama, however, it is futures of Gini Wijnaldum …

Fresh Off the Rumour Mill: Who’s Coming to Liverpool?

Fresh Off the Rumour Mill: Who’s Coming to Liverpool?

This year has been very irregular, to say the least, for football clubs and fans alike. After a dry spell with little more than the Belarus Premier League to follow on TV, the rest of the season was rushed through to make up for the lost time. As you might expect, this left clubs just a short window to strengthen their ranks with fresh talent. Before the transfer window closes and the silly season sends us back to virtual sports …
Three Thiago Alternatives for Liverpool

Three Thiago Alternatives for Liverpool

The Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool rumours continue to circulate. According to reports from every country that isn't England, the 29-year-old Spaniard will join the Reds after the completion of Bayern's Champions League campaign in August. The ludicrously talented former Barcelona linchpin would be a fantastic addition to the English champions' squad, but the rumours of his impending move still seems out of kilter with Liverpool's transfer approach. Invariably, Fenway Sports Group, the club's owners, have stuck to their recruitment principles …
What Will Thiago Alcantara Bring to The Reds?

What Will Thiago Alcantara Bring to The Reds?

Off the back of inarguably the Reds’ best season in the premiership, Jurgen Klopp seems to be wasting no time in filling out his squad for Liverpool’s title defence. Since lifting the Premier League trophy for the first time recently, the sky’s the limit. Therefore, it’s hardly surprising the head coach is considering bringing Thiago Alcantara into the fold. Fans and punters – regulars at STS and elsewhere – will likely recognise Alcantara from German football. He’s been an integral …
Why Thiago Could Offer Liverpool Antidote To Their Kryptonite

Why Thiago Could Offer Liverpool Antidote To Their Kryptonite

Liverpool have only dropped points on five occasions in the league this season. You can infer from this that the Reds are accustomed to winning against all means of approaches and tactics. However, when you take out the mauling suffered away to Manchester City -- only days after the confirmation of their title victory and with many of the players evidently worse from wear after their celebrations -- there's a common thread among the rest of the teams who have …

Apparently, Thiago has agreed a contract with The Reds but there is some disparity between what Liverpool are willing to pay and the fee that FC Bayern …
Why Thiago to Liverpool would be odd

Why Thiago to Liverpool would be odd

Thiago Alcantara is the latest big name player to be (heavily) linked with Liverpool this summer. And he is the business. Thiago is an absolutely elite central midfielder, who would improve most central midfields in the entire world. If we’re being honest, he would improve Liverpool’s and would certainly be an exceptional option to have kicking about. My point is that when I say this transfer is very odd and not at all what I would expect Liverpool to do, …
