From Mario Gotze, to Sadio Mane to Andros Townsend – Liverpool’s transfer targets for the winger position are getting progressively less exciting.
The Telegraph last night claimed we were interested in the relegated attacker, who has a £10.5m release-clause with Newcastle.
Towsend’s form towards the end of last season was impressive, but the fact he toiled in Tottenham’s Under-21 side at the beginning of the campaign says much about his pedigree.
Here’s how Reds reacted to the news…

Only Liverpool can be linked with Andros Townsend and Paul Pogba on the same day.

Seeing Andros Townsend linked to #LFC disgusts me.

Rather have Mane for x3 the fee than Townsend. Mane has potential to be top class. Townsend is just another bang average English player.

Really don’t think we should sign townsend. His attitude is awful and we have loads of similar, better quality players already
