What one journo heard about Liverpool’s next signing; won’t be a midfielder – Football Insider

Posted by

Liverpool’s next signing may not be a midfielder after all after Football Insider claimed the Reds could now pursue a left-sided centre-half.

Pete O’Rourke now claims that the Merseysiders could move for Torino’s Perr Schuurs to provide cover to the backline.

It’s a potential signing that doesn’t necessarily fit the bill in terms of what the club was thought to be looking for, however, with the Dutchman a right-footed centre-half (as opposed to the left-footed option Jurgen Klopp’s men were keen on).

Set to cost us in the region of £30m, if this latest report is indeed on the money, we’d have roughly over £60m remaining in the budget to pursue a holding midfielder.

Whilst, theoretically, that should be a reasonable amount of funds with which to find a young, long-term option for the holding midfield role, it seems a little baffling that we’d put the search for this position on the backburner – even with Wataru Endo secured.

One to take with a pinch of salt, perhaps, Reds until we hear anything further on the subject.

    Why are the 3rd richest club who made record revenues of 600 million last season, with one of the best managers, klopp, in the Europa league, with the smallest squad in the premier league.

    Why have Arsenal, Manchester United, Newcastle passed us. Chelsea are next

    The net spend last 5 years. It’s called neglect to spend from charlatan owners FSG with an ageing squad.

    4 Newcastle 418 million
    5 spurs 402 million

    1. well put …dont waste comments here go to tia.com… better discussion with fans, eotk good article’s

    2. Your clueless .
      FSG have a business model and have given Klopp money to buy players as and when required .
      Where did the money come from to develop Anfield ?
      Have they increased their commercial revenue since taking ownership ?
      Have they managed to win silverware ?
      FSG couldnt do much more as owners , their fully aware of the spending power of other clubs and have to be smart , they even looked for outside investment to allow Liverpool to be more competitive .

  3. Watching the opening 5 minutes of the opening game at Anfield when Bournemouth rip the
    non- existent Liverpool defence like kids opening sweets you wonder why all this fuss about MORE middies. Perhaps at least half a crown could be spent on getting a defender who knows what he is doing ???????
