In the second part to the series, Two Liverpool Fans take a look at who Liverpool FC should be looking to buy this coming summer transfer window.
Although largely inconsistent, Johnson is a huge game changer and could be a real livewire down either flank for Liverpool FC. Johnson is brilliant at what he does best, and that is racing past his marker and delivering a delicious cross into the box.
Furthermore, the deal could be rather cut-price as Johnson has (sort of) fallen out of favour at The Eastlands, with him getting very little game time down at Manchester. Liverpool would need him to supply the crosses required for Andy Carroll to get on to, with the Englishman’s largely imposing physical presence being put to waste this season, with Liverpool being unable to provide a consistent crosser for the Englishman to flourish at Merseyside.
Definitely the choice that is going to require the most justifying from me, but I think that he is actually a quality player and it is just Ashley Cole stopping him from being a great player at Chelsea. He has scored many crackers in his time with CSKA Moscow.
Not only will he be able to fill the left back position should he come to Anfield, but he can also play further forward and thus fixing another problematic position for the Reds: the left midfield position, where Meireles has been made to play on numerous occasions. A good crosser with lots of pace, I think that he could be a great signing.
It you’re not convinced:
Well, Jermain Defoe has had an up and down year, which is why one of my main reasons for suggesting his signing is because he could come on the cheap. Defoe has a really powerful shot and bags of pace to leave defenders in their wake, and that could be just what Liverpool need.
Andy Carroll isn’t exactly the fittest striker around, so I think that the solution is to bring in another proven goalscorer, one who knows how to shoot between the sticks. Jermain Defoe and Luis Suarez doesn’t sound like too bad a combination either, does it?
Well, the Wigan man has been linked to a move to Merseyside, and I honestly think that it is justified. Liverpool are keen to develop their youth and McCarthy is a brilliant example of a young, British player. Young and talented, and he certainly knows how to pick out a pass.
For those who aren’t convinced: See 0:45 and especially 3:24 (Genius)
