Liverpool consider move for £75million playmaker to strengthen attack

Liverpool are considering 12 players to strengthen their attack in the summer transfer window and one of them is West Ham star Felipe Anderson (The Daily Mail).

The Brazilian international left Lazio to move to the Hammers last year and he had an impressive debut Premier League campaign.

The 26-year-old star featured in 36 PL fixtures, scored 9 goals and provided 4 assists. In the 2017-18 season, the Samba playmaker was mostly injured and could only start 14 games in all competitions for the Italian club, still, he managed to directly contribute in 16 goals (7 goals and 9 assists).

Transfer Story – Deal close – Liverpool signing to be sealed imminently

Liverpool have world class players like Salah, Mane and Firmino in their attacking third. However, they do not have adequate backup options available.

To cover for Salah on the right wing, we have Shaqiri, who has mostly warmed the bench in the second half of the campaign. Same goes for Origi, who has covered in the absence of Firmino.

As far as the left flank is concerned, I think that Klopp has not got a single natural winger to cover for Sadio Mane.

In such a scenario, someone like Anderson should be brought. The South American star can play in multiple offensive positions but mainly, he is a left winger.

In my view the major issue in luring him would be his massive price tag. West Ham would surely want to hold on to their prized asset but they have a gentleman’s agreement that allows the player to leave for a fee of £75million (Bleacher Report).

Have your say – Should Klopp splash the cash to bring Anderson to Anfield?

    Not going to happen at that price. I have a sneaky feeling we’ll go back in for Fekir. We refused to pay 53mil coz of the injury concerns as soon as Lyon heard this, they pulled the plug refusing to sell coz they wanted 58 mil we got them down to 53. Now he’s in his last 12 months, refusing to sign a new contract, we’ll get him for 35-38. Jurgan wanted him and just him that’s why we didn’t sign anyone else. Don’t forget it was before the world cup, we had all summer to buy someone else, we had all January to sign someone else, we didn’t. Klopp knows who he wants and who he sees fitting in the team to do a job and he wanted Fekir. I’d be surprised if we signed anyone other than him.

    i agree with you. fekir would be a great addition.

    Fekir wont be joining us boys, at 75mill neither will Anderson and his recent stats and age dont justify the price tag not to mention injury concerns, that said he’s a player capable of tearing it up under the right circumstances and I’m hearing that he will be allowed to move at around 47.5 mill, it’s a toss up between Anderson and Ryan Fraser and I’d take either, Fraser pulling out 14 assists at a team like Bournemouth is excellent as is his quality of delivery and decision making he is also just as quick as Anderson so dont be surprised to see us go in for him. Great business thatd be trust me.

    Exactly I think players like depay should be brought in not to be a back up but to add that extra spark to the game like coutinho once did

    Fraser is a workhorse. How technical is he? We need a classy goalscorer. Apart from Depay, Lyon has others. Find the gem!
