Liverpool don’t need a replacement for Christian Benteke, right?
We’re totally well stocked up top – that’s why we’ve sold the Belgian powerhouse to Crystal Palace in the first place!
With Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Danny Ings fighting for one position, the last thing we need is another striker added to the mix.
Still, this hasn’t stopped Brazilian outlet Zero Hera confidently stating that we’re one of the clubs fighting for Gremio’s Luan, who’s currently at the Olympics with Brazil – preparing for tonight’s final with Germany.
The striker has also been linked with Manchester United and Leicester City this transfer window after a positive season in his homeland, and while we’ve been impressed with what we’ve seen in Rio – he’s simply not needed.
Besides, if we were going to buy a young Brazilian striker, we should throw the kitchen sink at Gabriel Barbosa – who looks destined to follow in Neymar’s footsteps from Santos to greatness.
This transfer rumour, like the Gary Medel, Shkodran Mustafi and Joe Hart ones – needs to be quickly disposed of in the ‘NOT HAPPENING’ bin!
As you were.
