Do Liverpool risk having a Manchester City type squad with all the proposed summer signings?
Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Charles N’Zogbia are the other wingers that have been associated with Liverpool recently. If the press are to be believed, Ashley Young looks Manchester United-bound and with N’Zogbia renowned as an out and out left sided player I would say go for Juan Mata. Besides from his mouth-watering quality, he is relatively young at just 23 and would provide the club with a fair few years of service.
If Liverpool can secure the services of two of these wingers, it leaves us with a pretty complete squad. Once the expected deals for Roma goalkeeper Doni and Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique is finalised, a centre back will be the only position left to fill.
Phil Jones is seemingly on his way to Manchester United, which rules him out of contention. However Scott Dann, a boyhood Liverpool fan, continues to be linked. According to newspaper reports, a £10 million bid would be enough to secure his signature. For me Dann, alongside Roger Johnson, were the reason Birmingham City stayed out of the bottom three for so long. Once they lost Dann to a season-ending injury, they didn’t look the same outfit and were subsequently relegated.
So, it looks like it is going to a crazy summer at Anfield with many expected to be coming in as well as out of Liverpool. In Kenny, we have faith. Faith in the transfer market. Faith with the players. And faith in the league. Let’s see how it unfolds.
