Liverpool is a club with a proud history. The Reds are one of the biggest clubs in the world and are currently enjoying a renaissance under Jürgen Klopp. However, in an ever more competitive market we are sometimes being left behind. Liverpool reportedly missing out on Kayky shows a lack of ambition from FSG.
Who is Kayky?
17-year-old Fluminense start Kayky is one of the hottest prospects in South America.
The Brazilian teenager has been dazzling audiences with his dribbling ability and flair.
His penchant for ghosting past opposition defences before firing home has earned him the tag of ‘the new Neymar’.
He already has two goals in eight appearances in the Brazilian top flight despite his young age.

Man City to sign Kayky
The youngster’s rise to prominence in Brazil hasn’t gone unnoticed.
UOL reported a couple of months ago that Liverpool were interested in signing Kayky.
However, nothing solid developed from the Reds’ alleged interest.
Since then The Guardian has reported that Man City have sealed a deal for Kayky.
The outlet has claimed that the Blues have tied up an £8.6m transfer plus further bonuses and a 20% sell on clause.
Liverpool miss out on Kayky
The Reds are enjoying a resurgence under FSG but sometimes they drop the ball.
This could well be one of those moments where FSG have demonstrated a worrying lack of ambition.
Liverpool missing out on Kayky is disappointing. If there is a ‘new Neymar’ around then we can’t be letting our rivals swan in every time.
This will only serve to propel them forward whilst we continue to scour for diamonds in the rought.
Sure, the Reds’ transfer policy in recent windows has been successful but sometimes you need to go all guns blazing and show some ambition.
This was a relatively inexpensive move to make and one which could prove a bargain years down the line.
The last Neymar was pretty good wasn’t he? He still is. If the new Neymar is available for less than £10m then we need to be taking a punt.
Maybe he won’t live up to the hype but those are the risks you’ve got to take when you’re looking to land a future great of the sport.
To keep playing second fiddle to the likes of Manchester City and the Spanish giants when it comes to the big transfers will only see us fall behind in the years to come.
