Ask most football fans and they’ll agree that this years’ Euro 2016 tournament has been one of the most unpredictable and exciting in years.
With all the home nations going through, plucky Iceland upsetting the odds and Portugal scraping through with difficulty, it really has been fantastic.
And what we’ve seen more than anything is some lesser-known players grabbing the headlines when some of the big stars have struggled to meet expectations.
And one side that may be trying to prise some of these players away from their respective clubs is Liverpool, who will well and truly be in the market for new players this summer.
Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to strengthen his squad going forward in his first summer in charge and this could be a huge market for him to dip into.
So with that in mind, here are FIVE underrated Euro 2016 gems that would be perfect for Liverpool going forward…
Whilst the world carped about Luka Modric (who has been excellent), this Croatian star somewhat went under the radar.
Ivan Perisic, who plays for Inter Milan in Italy, has been a real force for the Croats in the tournament so far, scoring an excellent winner against Spain too.
Capable of playing as a winger or behind the striker, he’d be an extremely flexible option for Jurgen Klopp going forward.
Arguably the star of Euro 2016 so far, Michael McGovern has really put himself in the shop window for a big move this summer.
Whilst he has played in the SPL all his career, he has well and truly proved he is capable of bigger and better things in France for Northern Ireland, and Michael O’Neill’s players will be grateful of his work, particularly against Germany,
Whilst he wouldn’t be first, or even second choice, he is arguably a better option than Adam Bodgan, who has been shaky at best.
He has been Hungary’s best player so far and reminded us why he was held in such high regard when he made a big-money move to Russia back in 2011.
He currently plays for Bursaspor in Turkey and with all due respect, he can play at a higher level than that. With good players around him, he could be a real force in the Premier League.
It’s a gamble that could pay off for the Reds.
You really get the feeling with Aaron Ramsey that this might be his time. He has been fantastic for Wales so far and has been an instrumental part of why they’ve qualified as group winners.
He has often been unlucky with injuries and is not really a starter in an Arsenal squad packed with quality, so this could be an extremely useful move for both parties.
Arnason is the centre-half behind a lot of Iceland’s solid defensive work and he has gained a lot of fans since bursting onto the international scene.
He plays for Malmo in Sweden and is highly regarded in Icelandic football. He looks like he is ready to step up to Premier League level and Liverpool could offer him the chance to do so.
