Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Liverpool went into the summer transfer window looking to add attacking reinforcements. Fans wanted it to happen. Journalists mentioned the need for a fourth attacker.  French media linked the Reds with Nicolas Pepe, German press claimed Timo Werner was a target for the European champions while reports in Spain said Philippe Coutinho was set for a return to Merseyside. Yet when the window closed, Jurgen Klopp hadn’t added any attacking reinforcements.  It’s still early days, but the decision not to …
Trouble in paradise: Two scandals by Liverpool standards

Trouble in paradise: Two scandals by Liverpool standards

We've reached the first international break, and so it's time to reflect on the first action of the season. The Reds have rattled off four Premier League wins from four and added another continental crown to their cabinet, but there's also been a rare dose of drama. First, we had the acrimonious departure of Anfield star-in-waiting Bobby Duncan, and then came Sadio Mane's outburst, directed at Mohamed Salah, after being substituted at Burnley. So let's take some time to discuss …
Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool sold academy striker Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina after the Serie A side made an offer to sign the 18-year-old permanently. The Reds will reputedly pocket €2million upfront with a 20% sell-on fee for the former Manchester City underage player. Duncan wasn't the only player out the Anfield exit door on European Transfer Deadline Day. Ryan Kent joined Rangers -- who he spent last season on loan at -- for a fee in the region of £7,000,000. The English duo's …
Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Reports in the media today strongly suggest that Dejan Lovren is headed to Italy on a permanent deal. He did not travel with the team to Istanbul, so it's quite possible the rumours are based on reality than your regular summer click-bait. The Croat found himself down the pecking order after representing his country in the World Cup final last summer. After undoubtedly the highlight of his career at that point, Lovren was plagued by injuries for most of last …
Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

Liverpool Must Not Underestimate The Importance Of Investment This Summer

It's been a fairly interesting pre-season so far. Premier League champions Manchester City have also been heavily linked with Spanish international Rodri, a 23-year-old central midfielder currently learning his trade at Atletico Madrid. Another of Liverpool's rivals, Manchester United, completed the signing of right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka from Crystal Palace - who has drawn many comparisons to the Reds' own full-back Alexander Arnold. The Red Devils have also been linked with Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire, who could be another to …
Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

Why a lack of signings is a positive sign of the times

As we turn over another page in our calendars and find ourselves in July, it's hard to believe just quite the position Liverpool are in. If you'd have told any Red when they were flipping the yearly planners over to July 2018 that, in 12 months time, Liverpool would be the reigning champions of Europe after missing out on the Premier League title by a solitary point, I'm sure the vast majority would have sold their soul to make that …
Nice transfer rumour, be a shame if something happened to it

Nice transfer rumour, be a shame if something happened to it

You remember that one summer where you had big plans of being invited to backyard keggers every night, finally getting guts to ask out that girl from the ice-cream stand, and instead you basically ended up having to work every day bagging groceries and spent your remaining free time playing Xbox in your basement until you realized it was September? OK, so this is turning into my own personal therapy session rather than an informative transfer post, but the point …
Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

There's been an unrivalled amount of chatter surrounding the future of Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt in recent weeks, with plenty of rumours linking him with a move to Anfield. However, reports in the past 48 hours seem to point toward the Dutch wonder kid joining PSG. There's also talk of Liverpool making moves for Lille's Nicolas Pepe and Sporting Lisbon's Bruno Fernandes. While it's difficult to quantify anything at this stage of 'silly season', one thing that we do know …
The Case For Zero Liverpool Signings

The Case For Zero Liverpool Signings

As the last pieces of content from the Champions League Final dribble out, our attention turns fully to the transfer window. Our domestic and European rivals have begun to make official some of their squad additions with Real Madrid blowing past the €300 million mark already. Liverpool have been linked to several of Europe’s top prospects with De Ligt and Nicolas Pepe drawing the most interest. There is a case to be made that Liverpool should spend loads this summer …
Why Signing Depay Rather Than Werner Makes More Sense

Why Signing Depay Rather Than Werner Makes More Sense

The transfer window has barely opened and rumours are already going into overdrive. Those rumours surrounding potential incomings at Liverpool seem to surround a number of attacking players, namely Memphis Depay of Lyon and Timo Werner of Red Bull Leipzig. There's no doubt that both would be solid additions to Liverpool's already deadly striking options, but both would add different dimensions as their styles of play are so different. And it's for this reason that, I would argue, one is …
