5 Players Liverpool can sign! Who are the 5 Players Liverpool can sign this summer?
Note: I have selected players that are realistically attainable. Of course, I would put players like Lionel Messi if I wanted to, but I’ve selected players that Liverpool could actually sign (and have been linked to in the past). I’ve also considered positions that need strengthening the most such as strike force squad players and midfielders and full-backs. So here are the Players Liverpool should sign.
5 Players Liverpool Can Sign
Liverpool’s recruitment has been commended by experts and pundits for a number of reasons – they have been cost-efficient, productive and led to trophies over the past 5 years under Jurgen Klopp. The Reds are arguably the best team in Europe right now with players like Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold in their lineup.
However, Liverpool do not necessarily have the strongest bench to compete for multiple trophies in one season. That was a part of a reason behind them exiting the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Champions League in 2019/20. Here are the 5 players that Liverpool should look to sign this summer –
5. Ousmane Dembele, Barcelona (Winger) – Players Liverpool Can Sign
The Barcelona winger is an outcast at Nou Camp. He is not wanted at the club but they are stuck with him. Barcelona had to sign him long back because Neymar had left the club. Barcelona were desperate for a replacement star and Dembele was tipped to be the next big thing in football at that moment. It cost Barcelona their record transfer money ever spent to sign a player.
However, Dembele was bad in training, did not show up at times and picked up bad habits at Nou Camp. So naturally, he was not involved much in games and played bad whenever included. He has still failed to get going and a move a new manager might help. Klopp has a habit of setting players straight and if he can get a talented player like Dembele to focus, Liverpool will be unstoppable. But he will be expensive. Maybe a loan move?
4. Kostas Tsimikas – Players Liverpool Can Sign
Liverpool have an outstanding left-back in Andy Robertson but who do they have as backup? A 33-year-old James Milner to play as a makeshift option. We have already seen the sheer number of games both Liverpool’s fullbacks need to partake in and after two very demanding seasons, it might head towards injury disaster. Signing a backup is Klopp’s best option at maintaining’s Robertson’s health long-term.
Tsimikas plies his trade for Olympiakos and has registered 7 assists in 37 appearances this season. At 23, he is one of the best left-backs in Greece and plays a similar style of football as Robertson – attacking-minded but diligent defensively. He could be signed for anywhere close to €25m.
3. Kai Havertz – Players Liverpool Can Sign
Leon Bailey’s teammate at Bayer Leverkusen (former Liverpool target), Kai Havertz is waiting to be lifted out of the Bundesliga this summer. His value has easily crossed the €100m mark after two breakout seasons in the German top-flight. Now, he is firmly placed in Joachim Low’s plans for the international squad and Liverpool could very well break the bank for the playmaker.
Havertz is as technically adept as he is fast. At such a young age of 20, he has vision unlike any other in top-flight football, very replicable to a young Mesut Ozil. He could easily fit into this Liverpool team and give them the attacking quality they need to dominate opposition teams in England. He could be fielded in a number ten role or even in a three-man midfield with Fabinho behind him and Giorginio Wijnaldum or Naby Keita next to him.
2. Kalidou Koulibaly
There has been rumor on the Napoli defender’s next destination. Liverpool already have the best defence and adding Koulibaly would be frightening for their defence. It would mean that no player would be able to get past the team and they would an impossible team to beat.
1. Jadon Sancho
Sancho is one of the most sought-after young players right now and for justifiable reasons. He has been directly involved in 30 goals for Borussia Dortmund this season in 23 Bundesliga appearances. He could be the next in line to succeed either Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane in the Liverpool final third but he is bound to cost a pretty penny. The 20-year-old’s services will not come cheap as already indicated by Dortmund hierarchy.
