English Premier League: Liverpool’s transfer requirements in January
The time has come where teams have played more than half of the season and have a better picture of their strengths and weaknesses. The January transfer window can be crucial for clubs who need to strengthen certain areas or just
find that missing link, which will help them either push to the top, shoot up the table or avoid relegation.
One team that had its weaknesses exposed constantly this season was Liverpool. Now, with new owners New Sports Venture willing to provide funds if the ‘right player becomes available’ is something Liverpool need to sort
Liverpool’s needs could be divided into three major areas. A striker to take the burden off, who only has the not so apt David N’Gog for cover, a winger who can provide pace and more zest than Liverpool’s only other
natural winger Maxi Rodriguez and a new left back for what has to be a flop in the name of Konchesky.
However, NESV seem to have a strict transfer policy. Their main criterion at this stage is that the potential signing must be of a certain age and for the right price. It seems NESV want to build a strong team for the long term
and are reportedly willing to wait until the summer transfer window in order to invest heavily.
On the contrary, with the appointment of David Commolli, it seems that it might not be the case. Liverpool have publicly declared their interest in Aston Villa’s, someone who can add pace and width to a flat Liverpool
midfield. Young perfectly matches NESV’s vision and with Villa manager are not for sale means that they may have to wait until the summer to sign either one.
Liverpool are also rumoured to want out of favour left-back and former Reds player, back on loan to provide a more potent option in place of the faltering Paul Konchesky. Warnock would be a good fit as he is familiar
with the Reds, having graduated from the academy, and his tendency to go forward is one that new manager Kenny Dalglish seems to encourage.
Liverpool have also reportedly bid around 4 million pounds for the influential Blackpool playmaker and captain Charlie Adam, with manager Ian Holloway rejecting the offer claiming the player is worth an astounding 46 million pounds.
A valuation no club would be willing to match. However, it has been rumoured that Charlie Adam has put in a transfer request and hopes to seal a move to the Reds. If sealed it would be a shrewd signing as he provides more of an attacking threat then
Leiva or
Yet the main transfer gossip revolves around Ajax striking sensation Luis Suarez, who has been linked with a move to the Reds since the January transfer window opened. Lined up as a potential striker partner and cover for Fernando
Torres, the Uruguayan international has been in sensational goal scoring form. Ajax originally stated that only an ‘absurd fee’ would be enough to pry their prized striker away from the club, yet in the past few days things seem to have made progress with
NESV and Liverpool representatives refusing to comment on the speculation.
The biggest indication that Suarez might leave in the January window has been Ajax boss Frank De Boer’s statement, “We won't let Luis go on 31 January at 23.55. It logical and a deal which I made with Rik Van Den Boog (general
director of Ajax). To replace Suarez will be difficult, but we are ready. We have a Plan B, we know what we want if he leaves.”
Whatever the case is, do need at least one new signing to help lift the spirits and prove to everyone involved with the club that the Reds are at the very least trying to move in the right direction.
