In the market for more players to boost the squad, Brendan Rodgers has been a busy man with an extended kitty of £75 million to get through he’s been eyeing up Argentina’s South American talent.
Reportedly Rogers is eyeing up Argentinian goalkeeper Romero and is now hopeful of signing Paris Saint-Germain forward player Ezequiel Lavezzi, which the 29-year-old is rumoured to have rejected a new contract offer from the French club. Rodgers who has been showing interest in the forward for some time has now been given the green light to approach the player making this almost a sure-fire signing if the Reds manager can offer the Argentinian the right deal.
27-year-old goalkeeper Sergio Romero could be the other Argentinian heading to Liverpool as Rodgers is in talks with Sampdoria.
Another raid on the Italian market has been in the gossip columns in a bid to land Giuseppe Rossi also in Brendan Rodgers’ sights as he makes an approach for the 27-year-old former Manchester United forward who currently plays at Italy’s Fiorentina.
The current offer stands at £17.9 million and a successful signing will surely boost and deepen Liverpool’s attacking force for the busy season ahead.
Another recent addition to squad was the cut price £12 million signing of 22-year-old left-back Alberto Moreno from Sevilla. With the defence, wings and strike force bolstered, Liverpool’s squad is looking to be a formidable force in the season to come. The signings so far have mainly been quality young players a with Rodgers’ imagination and tactical strength, he is sure to get the best out this squad as it develops into what could potentially be one of the best teams in the world.
More good news came as Kolo Toure turned down a deal with Trabzonspor and vowed that he would improve and fight for his first team place at the club. There is nothing like a little competition to spur on your players and Toure is a class payer when he is concentrating and on his game.
A good performance this season, even without trophies will be enough to attract more top talent to the squad mid-way through the season and at the end of the season. The target once again is obviously Champions League football, but there is also hope of snatching a title along the way.
It may prove difficult to pick up a trophy with so much competition out there a new built squad, but Liverpool could just make a break for it as they did at the end of the year during 2013. If the league remains as wide open as it did, and new players begin to gel, Liverpool have a fighting chance of catching their dream of winning the clubs first ever Premiership title. However, with a young squad this is a big ask. We can all but hope as Rodgers seems to have what it takes to make things work.
