Liverpool set £7m transfer fee & Rodgers winning race for Juve ace – Best of LFC
It’s gone all quiet at Liverpool in the past fortnight. A little too quiet if you ask me. Since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers at the start of June an eerie hush has descended on Merseyside. It’s thought that Rodgers is plotting his first in the transfer market as Liverpool boss with a right sided midfielder and striker sitting at the top of his shopping list. With Dirk Kuyt gone, Maxi Rodriguez expected to leave and Stewart Downing failing to sufficiently provide from either flank the need for a quality wide man is of grave importance. However it’s doubtful that FSG will be willing to sanction another lavish spending spree and the going rate for a high calibre right winger is likely to exceed the budget at Rodgers’ disposal. But there is one option for the former Swansea boss to consider that could save him a lot time and money. It’s been rumoured that he will be giving Cole a clean slate at Anfield when he returns from his loan spell at Ligue 1 side Lille. Cole has been revitalised in France after a torrid first campaign at Liverpool and at 30-years-old will be keen to show he can still cut the Premier League mustard. Could be he answer to Rodgers right midfield problem? You’ll just have to wait and see!
This week on FFC is Rodgers facing a backbreaking struggle to bring success back to Liverpool and which striker is he willing to splash £7 million on?
