The Liverpool Echo conducted a poll recently in which they asked a number of fans to select which player they’d most like us to sign this summer…
Below are the twenty most common names selected. Most of them are naturally very ambitious, but there’s certainly a real possibility we could secure one or two of these.
We’ve added our own thoughts as to the likelihood of these transfers, and how suitable a Liverpool player they’d be should we complete a signing…
Could we snare any of these, Reds?
1) Gonzalo Higuain – Napoli
The Metro reckon Higuain is on the verge of an Arsenal move, which is a shame if true – because he’d be welcomed with open arms at Anfield. He’s clinical, proven and experienced – and in the prime of his striking career.
2) Nathaniel Clyne – Southampton
Clyne’s signing is definitely a high possibility. We need a right-back, and he’d surely jump at the chance of moving to a bigger club. The Manchester Evening News claim United are also interested, though.
3) Alexandre Lacazette – Lyon
The French striker was mentioned by 40% of voters, making him the fans’ most wanted target. Lacazette would be a jaw-dropping signing, as his goals in 2014/15 proves, but if he’s leaving Lyon, it’ll be for Champions League football, his club president confirmed (via Metro).
4) Karim Benzema – Real Madrid
A pure impossibility. Without Champions League football, there’s now way the Frenchman would sign.
