Liverpool should move for Bernardo Silva if he can go for £45m

Liverpool are in need of reinforcements. Whilst the Reds have two wins from two we still need to add strength in depth for when legs begin to tire towards the end of the season. Liverpool should make a controversial move for Bernardo Silva if he is indeed available for around £45m.

Liverpool reinforcements

At the moment we’d argue the Reds are short of a midfielder and a forward.

The Reds need a midfielder to come in and replace Gini Wijnaldum.

The Dutchman clocked more minutes than anybody else during the Jürgen Klopp era and our remaining midfielders have worrying injury records.

Meanwhile we’re short of cover and competition in the final third.

The Reds need to add bodies to the attack so that the boss can rotate and keep players fit and fighting for their place.

AC Milan to move for Bernardo Silva

This weekend reports emerged that AC Milan could be set to move for Bernardo Silva.

Previously The Athletic reported that the Portugal star wants out of Man City this summer.

The Daily Star has now reported that AC Milan are weighing up a loan-to-buy move for the utility man.

According to the report the Italian side want to loan him for two years at a cost of £15m before making the move permanent for an additional £30m.

Liverpool should swoop for Bernardo Silva

Ok, hear me out. This isn’t the most realistic move.

However, it’s hard to argue that Liverpool wouldn’t be perfect for Bernardo Silva.

He would suit us right down to the ground – even after that petulant display at the guard of honour.

We need a centre midfielder and a forward and he can tick both boxes.

He has a tenacity and versatility which makes him ideal for Jürgen Klopp’s system. Furthermore, he has a wealth of first team experience and is well versed in winning titles.

At £45m he’d be a steal as he’d kill two birds with one stone; covering both the midfield and the wings.

Unfortunately, City are unlikely to want to do business with a direct rival and his wages could be out of reach.

We can dream, though.
