Liverpool have secured yet another signing this summer after hiring the services of Valencia left back Aly Cissokho on a season long loan. Rodgers has been looking to reinforce that position and the French star will improve the squad.
However, the major bad news for Liverpool and the supporters was that they lost out on possible Marquee signing Willian as the Brazilian has opted to join Tottenham Hotspur instead. Nevertheless, Reds do have the funds to land a quality alternate.
The question is, who will be that Marquee signing?
With not many days left in the transfer season, there are not many top options available as well. On the other hand, Liverpool will surely not want to lose out on a player again just because they are not in Europe, a major possibility though.
One likely option they might consider is Ajax’s Christian Eriksen. Now that they have lost out on Anzhi star, chances are that Liverpool are to focus on £17m Willian Alternate.
Liverpool are lacking an attacking midfielder and Eriksen is a top talent. Not so long ago, Both player and Ajax’s manager have come up with statements that there are chances Eriksen may as well move to Liverpool. However, the merseysiders have not yet reportedly submitted an offer for the Dane star.
Tottenham have a habit of stealing Liverpool’s transfer targets. Willian is gone, Lamela is heading in the same direction. After signing two playmakers, surely Spurs will not go for third Eriksen.
Therefore, Brendan Rodgers must not waste time before other suitors turn up. Their rivals for fourth place are reinforcing heavily and Reds must bring in a top quality star to challenge or else they may as well fail to qualify for Champions League for 5th straight year.
