Liverpool are always on the lookout for a bargain. The Reds have earned a reputation for good transfer business in recent years and this summer could present Michael Edwards with another golden opportunity. Some Liverpool fans have begged for the Reds to sign Rayan Cherki amid reports he’s up for sale.
Who is Rayan Cherki?
French midfielder Rayan Cherki turned 18-years-old this week.
The youngster is a versatile creative player who rose through the ranks of the Lyon academy.
When he was 15-years-old he became the youngest ever scorer in the UEFA Youth League and at 16-years-old he became the second youngest player to feature in Europe’s top five leagues. Harvey Elliott is the youngest.
A press resistant player with silky dribbling and an eye for a killer through ball, Cherki is an exciting player to watch.
Lyon fire sale
This summer could see a number of players depart Lyon.
The club has already lost Memphis Depay to Barcelona on a free transfer.
Since then there has been reports that a number of players will be made available to sale with motivations ranging from poor attitude to the need to raise funds.
Lyon aren’t alone in needing to bring in some cash, plenty of French Ligue 1 clubs are scrambling following a botched TV rights deal.
According to RMC Sport, as cited by GFFN, Lyon are willing to sell Rayan Cherki this summer among other stars.
Liverpool fans want Rayan Cherki
The Reds are short of numbers in the final third and Lyon’s boy wonder can play anywhere in front of the midfield.
As a result plenty of Liverpool fans want Rayan Cherki signed this summer given his reported availability.
