Ranking 22 of the best potential Bosman free transfers Liverpool could sign

Posted by

Reds could secure a number of very good players on free transfers providing they don’t extend their current deals…

The Liverpool Echo has compiled a list of 22 players all of whom have contracts expiring at the end of the season.

As a result, we could sign them on a Bosman free transfer come January, meaning they’d arrive at the end of the season – or even sign them permanently in January for a likely reduced fee.

We’ve ranked them from 22-1 in order of how good a free transfer signing these stars would be for the Reds.

22) Danny Ings (Burnley)

Age: 22

Doesn’t have the ability to transform Liverpool’s fortunes in attack, unfortunately.

21) Sebastian Giovinco (Juventus)

Age: 27

Once highly rated, the atomic flea would likely struggle to adapt to the Premier League because he’s so lightweight, and has poor work-rate. Not an improvement on what we already have.

20) Stefan Reinartz (Bayer Leverkusen)

Age: 25

The German can do a solid job in either defence or midfield, but excels in neither.

19) Yohann Gourcuff (Lyon)

Age: 28

Hugely talented, but a horrendous injury record is why Lyon are unlikely to renew his contract, and why we probably shouldn’t sign him either.

18) Ignazio Abate (AC Milan)

Age: 28

No fuss Italian right-back who’s been with AC Milan his entire career. A slight improvement on Glen Johnson, perhaps.

17) Maxi Pereira (Benfica)

Age: 30

Similar to Abate. Decent addition for the short-term, but we should be aiming higher.

16) Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa)

Age: 29

Rated so much more highly since the World Cup, Vlaar is a terrific leader and very powerful. Wouldn’t be a blockbuster signing, but could be an astute one.
