Replace or risk

Last summer the club gambled.

Dejan Lovren was sold and the decision was made not to replace him.

The gamble backfired spectacularly. Every single senior centre back was ruled out for the season by January.

The injury crisis was unprecedented, signing a Lovren replacement could’ve alleviated our woes.

Now that Gini Wijnaldum is set to leave the club after five years as our most reliable midfielder the club have to replace him; surely they’ve learned their lesson from the Lovren debacle.

Liverpool race for Rodrigo De Paul

There are numerous players allegedly under consideration to replace Gini.

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

Il Milanista is one of a number of outlets to claim Liverpool are interested in Rodrigo De Paul at Udinese, valued at around £42m.

The playmaker has enjoyed another standout season for the Serie A side.

He notched nine goals and nine assists for Udinese, earning a WhoScored rating of 7.41.

According to Messaggero Veneto Liverpool will need to act fast to sign De Paul.

This is because Atletico Madrid have allegedly stepped up their efforts, offering cash plus Neuhen Perez.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing De Paul would be exciting.

He is a dynamic midfielder, his vision and passing range are a delight to behold.

However, at 27-years-old FSG may want to sign a player in his early 20s instead.

Either way, a replacement is essential.
