3 transfers Michael Edwards could orchestrate on a free for Liverpool in 2020

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be looking to further equip his already relentless group of players with fresh ammunition in the upcoming summer transfer window with squad depth one of the fundamental areas of improvement.OK

With the Reds’ status as world champions and runaway Premier League leaders, unsurprisingly, Klopp’s ‘Mentality Monsters’ have been tipped with some of the most coveted names in European football.

However, transfer guru and sporting director Michael Edwards hasn’t meticulously developed the Reds into one of the planet’s shrewdest recruiters by splurging eye-watering fees on blockbuster signings.

Instead, FSG and Liverpool will according to The Independent, look at uncovering hidden gems for modest fees as the club look to stick to their key principles thatt have installed them back to the pinnacle of European football.

Here at RTK we have listed three players we think would be perfect for Liverpool and would be plausible additions who could be brought into Anfield as free agents come the end of the season.

Ryan Fraser

Liverpool have been previously linked with the Scotland international although nothing has materialised just yet.

Fraser is, however, expected to be leaving Bournemouth this summer after failing to sign a contract extension with the Cherries.

The 25-year-old’s form this season has not been so impressive as the last following standoffs with contract talks. Fraser has just goal and three assists for Eddie Howe’s team this campaign.

On a free transfer, he would be more than an adequate backup for Klopp next season if Liverpool ever required a rotational change in attack.

Also, if Xherdan Shaqiri were to leave the club as expected this summer then Fraser would be a perfect like for like replacement.

According to reports from the ECHO, Liverpool currently value Shaqiri at £28 million. If the Reds were to offload the Switzerland international for a pricey-fee and secure Fraser on a free it would represent yet another masterstroke of genius from Edwards.

It was a deal that was meant to happen in 2013 when the Brazilian was touted with a move to Anfield.

Tottenham beat Liverpool to the punch before Chelsea swarmed in and signed the tricky winger who has been a revelation at Stamford Bridge during his seven-year stint in west London.

But it looks as if this could be the Brazil maestro’s final stint with the Blues this season with a contract still yet to be agreed.

Willian has demonstrated on numerous occasions this campaign that he is still an elite level player and is one that would certainly bolster up Liverpool’s attacking front-line.

His wages have proven the difficulty at Chelsea and the player could demand more money given that Liverpool wouldn’t have to for out a gargantuan sum in transfer fees.

Ferran Torres

According to Corriere dello Sport in Italy, Liverpool are chasing Ferran Torres of Valencia.

The 20-year-old has been building quite a reputation for himself in Spain.

In La Liga he has bagged four goals and four assists in 20 starts and five substitute appearances this season.

The youngster plays predominantly on the right wing but has also filled in on the left and as a striker when needed.

Although, Torres is said to have a release clause of €100m but with his contract expiring in 2021, The Reds could nab him on a free if he hasn’t negotiated a new deal by next January.
