Why Scott Dann and Bojan should be Liverpool’s next signings

As for Barcelona’s Bojan, we have been being linked with him since the January transfer window and with his agent touting him around Europe, it may be wise to move fast. In Bojan, it would be clear to any fan of European football what we’d be getting: a very talented, almost Messi-esque youngster. Already declared – and recently capped – for Spain the 20 year old is a fine prospect who, like Messi before him, has been playing in Barca’s first team since the age of 16 and has managed over 150 games and 30-odd goals, mostly from the bench it has to be said. Given his style of play though, he would offer the Reds something we didn’t have until we signed Suarez – a certain unpredictability in front of goal and a different option from the bench. And if he can bring us something similar to what we’ve had so far from Suarez then I’m all for that. Like Dann, it is unlikely that we would have to pay over the odds for the youngster, as he has fallen out of favour at Barca over the last 12 months and with Barcelona chasing after a couple more strikers this summer it’s likely that he’ll be actively seeking an exit.

Both these players would be coming in to fill in areas where we really need the cover too and they would add much needed quality cover and beef up the squad a little bit and I couldn’t see the pair costing us more than £20 million between them which would leave plenty over to strengthen elsewhere and, like Henderson, would have all of their best years ahead of them.

I’m sure Comolli and Kenny have other ideas in mind, or at least other options they’d like to consider but while we’re in the market and seem to have plenty of money to throw around it would be a good day for me to see these two young, established players brought to the club.

    Agree wth those comments. Both would be excellent signings. Just watched the first 25 minutes of the Spain v England under 21 game. Javi Martinez is a must. Accomplished holding player with the stature to suceed in the prem. Rafa courted him for a while. Now i know why. Quality. Please KK sign this man.

  2. Jay Wright says:

    How should those two players be a priority, when Suarez is still the only player that we have to do a quality job as a wide-forward/winger, the invisible man at leftback and lack power/athleticism through the team’s spine – I doubt Dann is any better than Kelly, and Krjic just benefitted from playing in a super Barca team; he’ll undoubtedly be exposed as soon as he steps out from that environment

    Javi Martinez is class phil jones is class but scott dann looks good but a left back is a must clichy is worth 10m and mata or adam johnson at left wing or both, henderson can play on the right sell agger and soto but andy carrol needs sorting out now not boozing with rooney

    wright, u’re right. i would take Kuyt over Bojan anytime. some people think like Jeffren n Bojan are what we need simply bcos they play for Barca.
    also, Dann might be cheap n local, but not class. he’s just a hardworking defender who gets stuck in and is good in the air. also lacks pace and likes to defend too deep(not helping the attack).

    Also, I don’t think Bojan is physically strong enough to play in EPL. He ‘ll be struggling at the doctor’s chamber like many other players coming from Spain. I don’t think we should look for Spanish or Italian players, unless he comes with a certain physical attributes.
