Liverpool have badly missed a top quality play breaker since Javier Mascherano left the club to join Barcelona in 2010.
Lucas has been average in the past few seasons and Henderson is not a specialist DM. On the other hand, versatile midfielder Emre Can has not signed a new deal as yet and it will not be shocking if he leaves the club this summer.
If Liverpool do sign a top central/defensive midfielder in the summer transfer window to solve the conundrum then they really do not have to worry about the German international leaving Anfield.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Merseysiders are eyeing the signature of Spanish international and Las Palmas star Roque Mesa.
According to Spanish source Marca, Liverpool are interested in hiring the services of the 27-year-old midfielder, who can effectively play as a in the central/defensive midfield.
Roque is an experienced star, who has played 125 games for the senior Las Palmas side and has a contract with the club until 2020. More importantly, upon checking his record, we have found that Mesa has never been injured in his career, which is a major plus point.
This season, he has featured in 24 league games for the La Liga club, scored one goal and also provided three assist.
As per the provided Marca link, Roque Mesa has a release clause of 30 million euros ($32million) in his contract but the Spanish side will be willing to accept a fee over 10 million euros. In your opinion, should Liverpool sign Mesa or look for a better quality player.
