One Over Another

These are players who currently linked with liverpool from any news
and my personal thoughts about them

Fabio Coentrao / Jose Enrique
It’s still confusing whether Liverpool or Real who made the bid for Fabio, but who doesn’t want him? It seems that many players are linked with Liverpool, of course it’s a transfer season, but for me these two are the hottest prospect for Liverpool next season. Enrique has been outstanding and another stand-up player this season, Leighton Baines, seems almost impossible to cross to the neighbor club.

Scott Dann / Gary Cahill
Center backs, Gary Cahill and Scott Dann are two players that currently and consistently linked with Liverpool. Yes still Gary Cahill is linked with everyone. Cahill seems one step ahead of Dann, but both players still pretty much open to any clubs. Although there are many good center backs across Europe, Premier-League-Trained players have more experience instead of gambling for outsiders.

Charlie Adam / Diego Ribas
Relegated captain in balance between signing out or signing an extension at Blackpool. Who doesn’t want to stay at PL level? And Diego Ribas a.k.a just “Diego”, ex-Werder Bremen star, ex-Juventus flop, and now establishing himself again at Wolfsburg. I think that everybody agree that Adam has been fantastic throughout this season and one of “must-have” Liverpool this summer.

Stewart Downing / Ashley Young
Is it polite to stole up to 3 players from 1 club (Brad Friedel, Downing, Young)?of course not all of them will be taken, but these two wingers both have almost the same quality for me. Young probably have been star player for long, but looking at the pace that Downing has, he definitely someone to consider to have. Another winger, Adam Johnson will not leave city cuz they play at CL next season. And Adel Taraabt of course, was linked with Liverpool too, but still no news that strengthen the rumors that he will leave QPR.

Juan Mata / Sergio Aguero
Sergio Aguero, #1 most wanted player this summer after his decision to leave Atletico this summer. Having some holidays at merseyside with Maxi Rodriguez could be a hint for his next club perhaps? Juan Mata is another hot wing forward beside Bojan Krkic could leave Barca this summer. I wonder how will Liverpool looks like when Suarez and Aguero play together.

Considering all of the star players that linked with Liverpool, I wonder how the owners will react, 50m pounds is minimal for the IN players, and for me the OUT players will be : Joe Cole, Jovanovic, Ngog, Konchesky, and some loan players like Insua, but Poulsen said himself that he wants to fight for a place and Aquilani still in balance.

mind my bad English
