Liverpool draw up four-man summer transfer shopping list
This bloke is looking to spruce the place up a bit
It’s report-mania on the slowest news day of the century, with Mirror Football today reporting that the Times are today reporting that Liverpool have reportedly drawn up a four-man shopping list of Premier League stars, ready to splash the cash this summer in an attempt to put the memory of this year’s godawful campaign behind them.
The paper claims the Reds are ready to put in bids for Villa’s Ashley Young, who is about ready to up and leave the club after refusing to sign a new contract, Blackpool captain Charlie Adam, Bolton’s Gary Cahill and new England squad member Matt Jarvis.
Director of Football Damien Comolli has been talking up the prospect of some new faces at Anfield himself:
The owners said from day one they want to improve things and turn things around quickly and I have said the same thing since I arrived, so I expect a busy summer.
When we prepare for the next season it’s difficult to say we work to the January transfer window. We work from summer to summer.
When the window shuts in September we are preparing for the next summer window, not the one in January because, as people say, usually not much goes on in January.
We proved that wrong but as soon as it shuts on January 31, we are thinking about the summer and what we are going to do.
We talk about different targets, about players we thought about in January but couldn’t do and keep the scouting team working.
I think we will have the squad depth next year to compete both in Europe and domestically if we manage to qualify for Europe.
So, Liverpool fans! What do you reckon about these potential summer targets? Good enough, or should the Reds be aiming for bigger names to drag them back into the Big Four battle next season?
