Question 4 of 10
4. Question1 points
“Obviously I’ve heard and I’ve seen stuff about the style, ‘he won’t fit the style of how we play’ – I think he’ll only complement it and help us.”
“He’s great in the air, strong, he can hold the game up, he can play on the counter-attack, he can play whenever the team is deep because he can hold the ball up with his physical strength.”
Question 5 of 10
5. Question1 points
“He is a world-class talent and it is an area we need to strengthen. It is a calculated risk but one where we believe we can help him as a player and to mature as a young man.
“He comes with a reputation but we hope at our club we can curb that behaviour. He knows he is part of a team. There are no egos or big-time Charlies in our squad. This is a group that’s got to the Champions League because they are a team.”
Question 6 of 10

“For a young player of 20, he’s actually got a lot of experience. He’s played 100-odd games and at the very highest level.
“He’s fantastic in the one v one, he’s great at taking players on, works hard and he’s got a goal in him. We’re looking forward to working with him.”
Question 7 of 10
7. Question1 points
“You’d think he was a Spanish player, a real European player. I would have paid many more millions for this kid. He is a unique player in that he’s a British player who doesn’t give the ball away. When he comes into this team you’ll see the difference he can make.”
Question 8 of 10
8. Question1 points
“He has the correct footballing profile and mentality to be a Liverpool player.
“I look forward to working with him to develop his talent.”
