Liverpool completed their main objective of qualifying for the next season’s Champions League after they finished 4th in the league by beating Boro yesterday.
It will be intriguing to see how Jurgen Klopp will spend on his transfers and who will join the Reds in the summer window.
Former Liverpool star Dean Saunders is quite confident that after earning Champions League qualification, the club will now be able to attract and sign the best of stars in the world. One such star that Dean particularly mentioned is Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann (Mirror).
Manchester United have been linked with the French international for a long time but Saunders claim that after CL qualification, he will also talk to Liverpool if he opts to move to the Premier League. Dean told LFC TV:
“I mentioned Griezmann and Liverpool will be on his list now. He will have a conversation with them if he’s coming to England”
Antoine will improve any team in the world because he is one of the best playmakers around. This season, he scored 26 goals and provided 12 assists in 53 games for the Spanish side.
His current contract with Atletico will expire in 2021 and it has a huge release clause of €100million (Independent).
In all fairness, the Merseysiders now need CL level players to improve the quality of their squad, only then they will be able to compete against the best of teams in the continent and challenge for the PL title as well. In your opinion, can Liverpool lure someone like Griezmann, for whom the competition is going to be very high?
