After Liverpool came within a ‘Gerrard slip’ away from winning the Premier League title last season, they’ve struggled to return to such heady heights by all but squandering their chances of a top four finish this term.
This is down to several things. They lost top scorer Luis Suarez to Barcelona, Daniel Sturridge keeps getting injured and £16million summer signing Mario Balotelli has been a complete waste of time and money.
So it’s no surprise that Brendan Rodgers has been linked with moves for several of Europe’s top performers ahead of this summer’s transfer window. It’ll be a big ask to attract the best ones to Anfield if he hasn’t got the Champions League is a bargaining chip, but he’ll be hoping to bag a few big names in an attempt to get back in the big time next season.
So below is a link of the 22 players Liverpool have been linked with so far. Some of them are serious targets, while others are probably fabricated from the dreams of bored hacks on a slow news day, but surely they’d all make a difference to Rodgers’ side next season?
Give them a thumbs up or down depending on whether you’d like to see them running out in front of the Kop next tewrm, and make a real time difference on who Liverpool fans truly want Rodgers to sign this summer…
