The transfer window may be closed but that has not stopped players to be linked with moves in the January transfer window. The latest rumour making the rounds is that Liverpool are set to bid for Paris Saint-Germain’s Argentine midfielder Javier Pastore in January.
The 24-year old attacking midfielder has fallen out of favour at PSG and is seeking a move away from the French club in a bid for regular first team football as he looks to secure a spot in the Argentina squad for the World Cup.
Pastore who joined PSG for a reported £30million in August 2011 from Palermo would be a much welcomed addition to the Liverpool side. In the summer, Liverpool tried to sign attacking midfielders Willian, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Christian Eriksen, but none of those deals came through and thus the Reds still remain thin in terms of attacking options in midfield.
Coutinho is currently out injured and we are struggling with link-up play between the midfield and the forwards in his absence. This is where a player like Pastore would be highly beneficial with his eye for a killer pass and great technical ability on the ball. With our current midfield trio of Gerrard, Henderson and Lucas, there is very little creativity coming out from there.
It is being suggested that Pastore could cost Liverpool £20million in January which would be money well spent. Having missed out on Willian, Mkhitaryan and Eriksen, Pastore would be the perfect tonic as he ranks right up there compared to those three and may even be better than then in my opinion. Do you think Pastore would be a good buy for Liverpool?
