Transfer Talk

Who should Liverpool be looking to buy in the summer?

Both in red next season?

Pienaar and Mascherano

Speaking out at the end of a rather flaccid season by Liverpool standards, Steven Gerrard reportedly said this yesterday, before being brutally forced to remember what it feels like to board a train:

“I do not believe in profound changes or a revolution. Three or four quality players should be enough but more quality than quantity.”

Now, the news circulating around various football websites today is that Everton’s Steven Pienaar could yet be set to cross the divide, in a move known either as “the reverse Peter Beardsley”, or “the classic Steve McMahon” depending on how you like to view things. And Bolton’s Gary Cahill could also be brought in to add a bit of steadiness to the defence.

Begging the question – are these the kind of players that Gerrard is talking about?

Who would YOU recommend that Liverpool buy in the summer?

    A striker seems obvious as they’ve only scored 57 so far this season, and only 14 away from home, the sixth worst away total in the league.

    Perhaps Edin Dzeko, or just someone that can support Torres and free up Gerrard to operate from deeper.

    Liverpool are constantly linked with countless players from all over Europe and beyond. I for one shall not be holding my breath as to seeing an influx of ‘quality’ this summer. If Rafa remains in charge, the likelihood is he will need to sell again before buying, as, I can see this whole sale of the club process dragging on for some time due to the greedy yanks. Mind you, if it did go through quickly, I would be pretty worried also if Rafa was given a big pot of cash to spend given his transfer record thus far!

    Anyway, to answer your question, Pienaar and Cahill, yes both good players, both who would add something to the Liverpool squad, but, world class, quality additions? c.£20m could be spent more effectively me thinks…

    they shoulda gotten Adriano. But i like the idea of Benzema playing alongside Torres. They should not get rid of Aquilani. And then maybe get a Marcelo in the back.

    They should get Gio Dos Santos to play a bit in front of Gerrard. Those would be good additions to the team.
