4 players Liverpool need to sign this summer
3) Ashley Young
Every Liverpool fan knows that we need to sign a quality winger this summer who has pace. It hurts me watching Liverpool and seeing that we can not go and score a goal on the counter attack simply because we do not have the players with enough pace to launch a counter attack.
With Suarez and Carroll now our strike force, these two are going to need ammunition from the flanks so that they can score, especially Carroll. Liverpool should do all they can to secure the signing of Ashley Young from Aston Villa. It is almost certain that Young will leave troubled Villa this summer and it is a toss up whether he goes to Manchester United or Liverpool. It would be so sweet if we could snatch Young from the noses of United.
4) Charlie Adam
This is a potential signing that many Liverpool fans can not decide on. Adam has been Mr. Blackpool this season as he has literally carried the team on his own. In the first half of the season he was instrumental. He is still playing well for Blackpool today but his form has dipped a bit. Many argue whether Adam will cut it at Liverpool or would he crumble under the pressure of playing for a big team?
Adam was close to joining Liverpool in the January transfer window but Blackpool refused to sell him. With Adam we know we would be getting a box to box midfielder who will be able to create opportunities for us in attack with his intelligent play and accurate passing, not to mention his pin point accuracy from delivering set-pieces. If Liverpool do sign Adam, what then would that mean for Steven Gerrard as the two are basically similar type of players? It would be risky having both Gerrard and Adam in central midfield as neither of them are disciplined enough to play the defensive midfielder role.
Nonetheless, having a player like Adam in the squad would mean we have a quality squad with depth.
