Romulo Latest Midfielder to be Linked to Liverpool

The latest in a long line…
Now that the Mohamed Salah transfer saga has been relegated to the old news pile, there’s some fresh fodder coming in on the wire with the Reds linked to Spartak Moscow holding midfielder Romulo.

Even before the injury to Lucas left Liverpool with a gap in the center of the park, the Merseysiders were continually linked with a move for a defensive midfielder this winter with recognized names such as Rubin Kazan shield Yann M’Vila, AC Milan enforcer Nigel de Jong and Udinese all-arounder Emmanuel Badu being thrown around as potential targets. Although little has come out of any of those links, with even less is expected to come out of this latest one, rumours has it that Liverpool are expected to test the waters with an opening bid of £7mil — the same amount we valued Salah at.

The midfielder, who has been on the treatment table for the better part of the last year and a half, has been continually linked with a move away from the Russian side since joining from Corinthians in the summer of 2012. With Liverpool already having to deal with a number of injured players, a move for Romulo could be considered a gamble with the promising midfielder’s latest woe being a tear in his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee almost immediately after returning from another knee problem.

According to the Metro, Spartak would prefer to sell the player in the summer, but could be tempted to let him go should the Reds inch closer to their £10mil valuation of the player. With a bid apparently already sanctioned by the Liverpool transfer committee, Brendan Rodgers could be welcoming the versatile Brazilian – who offers a good passing range along with the bite in his tackle – to the squad in the coming days.

That is, of course, if there’s any truth whatsoever in this.

    hope it doesn’t come to that, apparently it was salah and his agent who have been stalling. he chose Chelsea over us, and we have to understand it will be like this until we have champions league to offer, we need a DM rather than a winger don’t get me wrong id would have loved to have the guy kitted out for us.
    But scoring goals hasn’t been a problem. But i do agree Ian ayre isn’t the right guy.

    There is an abundance of talent out there. Plenty of players for the positions LFC need both to improve in the first eleven as well as squad players. Wolfsburg has a great young left back in Ricardo Rodriguez. There is plenty of great defensive midfielders around. The Octupus at Porto is one, but Iturraspes at Athletic Club is another. Athletic Club is one of those teams like Liverpool that can get exposed at the back. He has been brilliant in La Liga.

    I can’t understand why LFC hasn’t looked at Luka Antei at Sassulo for a central defense role. He has been excellent in a crap team. Now that Isco is placed on the bench, if we really have money; lets get him from Real. This guy is just fantastic going forward.

    Sorry for the semi-rant. LFC IS FIGHTING FOR FOURTH! BR has shown over a long time now what he can do. It is time to back him and get some quality in the side so we can challenge. Pure and simple.

    I hate the internet, just fuels stupid levels of expectation. *sign x/y/z* yadda yadda yadda, Maybe just maybe LFC are just getting on with it and will make the signings they want to make when ready to do so.

    Get rid of Ayre! Get a DM and winger and bring on the talented defense we have and are young and hungry, like Flanagan.

    Truth? I was just wondering if you were going to say something positive sometime.

    No strong feelings on
    Romulo?

    Not having Champions League football makes it almost impossible to compete against clubs who have it — hardly a surprise he picked Chelsea over us.

    We need to strengthen that’s for sure. January is always a hard market to buy in; unless you get your business done early, which we tried to do with Salah, you’re hard pressed to find a club willing to let a quality player go in the middle of the season.

    I think people need to recognize that their own expectations don’t always gel with the clubs and just because they think a player would fit LFC, it doesn’t mean they would.

    What you think and what the club thinks can be two vastly different things; some people have a hard time understanding and separating the two.

    Flanno will apparently be ready for the derby; if he is, he’s sure to start.

    Ideal Jan. for me and alts. (I realize Salah has moved on, but thats why this is IDEAL and not real…)
    1. Fernando Reges (alt. Mvila, Romulo)
    2. Salah (alt. Yarmolenko, Griezman)
    3. Montoya (alt. ???)
    So I realize I’m probably waaay of what will probably happen, but this would have offered sufficient boost for a Jan. window.
    A good idea though would be to recall some of our loans. Suso has been excellent and would push Hendo back in the midfield to CM or even DM if needed. Wisdom would give us FB cover, though not needed if enrique and flanno come back healthy soon.
