Alex Rogers takes a look at a few players Liverpool could sign that would be great for the club.
With the end of the season fast approaching, people’s imaginations are running wild with the prospect of a new superstar.
Of course, as always, Champions League football will be a big factor in attracting the big names.
So let’s assume we manage to finish in the top four, here are three targets that could definitely strengthen our team for our challenge to be Premier League champions next year.
Timo Werner has been a star in the Bundesliga this season and has been one of the stand-out players in Germany. Werner plays as a forward for RB Leipzig, who have been a very impressive outfit this season, currently sitting in second in the Bundesliga largely thanks to the efforts of Werner.
Werner would seem to be a perfect fit for Liverpool with his high work rate and willingness to work for the team. With 15 goals in 26 games this season in the league in the highly competitive Bundesliga at the tender young age of 21 is a very impressive feat.
However, Werner has attracted a lot of attention this season from other teams and he could potentially demand a high price for his impressive season, the likelihood of landing Werner may not be as likely as we would like, but it definitely is possible to land this impressive young German.
Virgil Van Dijk
Now, I’m sure you people reading this are tired of hearing this name crop up but I truly believe that Van Dijk could be the difference in making our defence subpar, into a defence to be reckoned with.
Van Dijk is a 6ft 4 quick Dutch centre back that has a knack for scoring, what’s not to love? I’ve been watching Van Dijk since his days at Celtic in Scotland and, despite it being in the SPL, it was clear that he is special. He was the best defender in the whole league by absolute miles.
Like Werner, however, Van Dijk could fetch a high price in the market. In fact, the reports are that it could be about £50 million if he were to leave Southampton. But you have to admit, it would be amazing if our starting centre backs were Matip and Van Dijk. Yeah, it would.
This guy has been causing quite a stir as of late and for good reason. Kolasinac is a left back for Bundesliga side Schalke and has been a core player for them this season.
Kolasinac is a versatile player, able to play at left back, centre back and as a defensive midfielder. This versatility could seem appealing to Klopp to add some more depth to our team that has hindered us already this season.
However, unlike the previous two players mentioned, Kolasinac may not even cost us a penny! His contract runs out in the summer, allowing him to go where he pleases. Just one season after our swoop for Matip for free, we potentially could steal a key player for Schalke again. That would be nice.
