You would think that Liverpool are done buying midfielders this summer following the arrivals of Downing, Henderson and Adam but Liverpool still lack natural width in the side and this may prompt Dalglish to go back into the transfer market for another winger to compliment Stewart Downing.

Fanatix is reporting that Liverpool may bid for Sevilla’s Jesus Navas 25-year-old who is valued at £22million. This is a lot of money to spend on a player without any Premier League experience and the fact that he suffers from homesickness may make him a risk to sign. But then again he has been one of the best players in La Liga and is a full Spanish international.

Liverpool have been deploying Dirk Kuyt a lot on the right hand side of our attack but he is in no way a natural winger like Navas or Downing. If Dalglish is thinking of going with the old-fashioned 4-4-2 formation this season, he would need a quality right winger and Navas fits the bill. This could then mean Kuyt would have to battle for a place upfront against Suarez and Carroll which in term could mean we do not need to buy another backup striker. We could solve two problems (right wing and striker) by buying one player; a right winger.
