Liverpool transfer news
Brendan Rodgers has done a wonderful job of bringing in young and talented players for the future. However, the impending departures of several senior members of the squad have produced a need for proven quality.
Steven Gerrard has already agreed his move to LA Galaxy, while the likes of Glen Johnson, Kolo Toure, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini could all follow him out of the exit door – at least according to the Liverpool Echo.
We’re not expecting Lionel Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo to be pulling up outside of the Anfield gates any time soon, but in the list below we’ve picked out five ambitious targets that could turnaround our fortunes!
5) Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton)
Some might argue that it’s time for us to leave Southampton alone. However, we clearly have a good relationship with the Saints and would do well to poach another of their top talents. Clyne’s development has been hugely impressive so far this season, while at just 23 the England international has a huge amount of room to grow. An attacking full-back who would be equally adept at wing-back, he would be the ideal replacement for Johnson.
