Former Everton and Tottenham star Gary Steven says Liverpool should sign Christian Eriksen this summer.

“I think Liverpool need to sign a player that will get into any side,” Steven said on Stadium Astro.

“I think Christian Eriksen would be brilliant for Liverpool. He creates things, he makes things happen, gets on the ball and scores goals. And if you look at his stats, he covers the yards.”

The Danish midfielder has been a mainstay in the Spurs side for almost seven years and was actually a target for Brendan Rodgers when the Northern Irishman was in charge of the Reds.

Liverpool really need a player in Christian Eriksen’s mould. A midfielder with quick feet and an even quicker football brain will take the Reds to the next level in the Premier League and Europe.

The people who read this site regularly will already know that I would love for Philippe Coutinho to rejoin Liverpool. He’s had a terrible time of things in Spain and would have his career revitalised with a move back to Merseyside.


Before his record-breaking £142m move to Barcelona, this Brazilian was the best player on form in the Premier League.

I am entirely certain that if Jurgen Klopp offered him a chance at redemption, he’d be rewarded tenfold.

Coutinho had 20 goals and assists before January last season and looked like he deserved a big money move. However, he went about getting it in completely the wrong way.

Superstitious people will tell you that he deserves the luck he has had and I would be inclined to agree. I also understand the people who don’t want him back.

But just imagine a front six of Fabinho, Chamberlain, Coutinho, Mane, Firmino and Salah. That side playing in front of a defence led by Virgil van Dijk would be menacing, to say the least.
