Forget Manuel – Liverpool have to Sign Julian Draxler

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho may end up leaving the Anfield club this month and if that happens then Klopp must sign a top player to replace the Brazilian.

Last night, we covered a report (via The Sun) claiming that the German boss wants to sign West Ham star Manuel Lanzini to replace Coutinho.

The Argentine star has been able to impress for the Hammers in the PL but playing for a big club like Liverpool is going to be a completely different story. He has only managed to score just once in 15 games this season and is not good enough to replace Liverpool’s little magician.

In my opinion, Liverpool must sign a proven quality star and someone as versatile as Julian Draxler will perfectly fit the bill. Back in November, it was reported (via L’Equipe) that Liverpool made contact to lure the German international.

The PSG playmaker won the World Cup in 2014 and led the national side to victory in the Confederations Cup last year. Like Coutinho, Draxler is naturally an attacking playmaker but this season, he has mainly played effectively in the central midfield.

In 14 starts for the French giants, the 24-year-old Kaiser has so far scored 3 goals and provided 5 assists. His pace and trickery to beat defenders and the ability to hold on to the ball under pressure in the attacking third makes him the perfect player to replace Phil.

As per reports (The Sun), PSG are prepared to let him leave for a fee worth 40 million pounds ($54million) and Liverpool have to splash the cash to agree his signing if Coutinho departs.
