Liverpool set eyes on Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder
After bringing in Daniel Sturridge for a really reasonable price, Liverpool is not expected to bring any big names to Anfield, unless you are talking about the Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has already declared that he will try to bring in experienced players during the rest of the transfer window. Managing Director Ian Ayre has confirmed this plan and has asked fans not expect big signing in the summer either.
In spite of Liverpool’s lack of interest in signing big players, everyone knows that the club needs to find a replacement for their midfield maestro Steven Gerrard. The 32-year-old England international has at the heart of all the success Liverpool has recorded in recent years.
Wesley Sneijder, who is available at a cut-price, could prove to be a good replacement for Steven Gerrard. Moreover, bringing him to the Merseyside would be a love that would lit up Anfield. Signing in the Dutch star would show courage, ambition and luck – just what Liverpool needs right now.
Brendan Rodgers seems to be formulating a team that is based around young players. It is fair to say that his vision is realistic and impressive, yet the need to bring in big names cannot be denied. Liverpool has been able to produce a number of talented youngsters in recent years; Raheem Sterling, Andre Wisdom, Suso and many others, but none of them have shown the potential to live up to the standards of Steven Gerrard.
“John Henry (Liverpool owner) said we want to win but we don’t just want to win once, we want to build something which keeps winning. If we’re going to do that then we need to do it from the ground up with young players, so that when you start winning you have still got the majority of that group,” Ian Ayre told the Liverpool Echo.
With archrivals Manchester United and a number of new English clubs on the rise, Liverpool needs to reclaim their spot as one of the top clubs in Europe – something is achieved by spending millions.
Liverpool has a good squad under Brendan Rodgers and the former Swansea City manager is showing signs of progress at the Merseyside club. Liverpool are still hoping to score a top four spot in the Premier League, but that dream seems hard to achieve with the rise in competition. The legendary English club is heading down the right path. Therefore, spilling some cash should accelerate the whole rejuvenation process.
