Although it is still very early days, for most clubs so far this summer, there has been a lot of speculation and little confirmed transfer business completed.
For Liverpool however, they have bucked the trend and already managed to secure two deals that will take effect from July 1st.
Yes, both James Milner and Danny Ings are the latest English additions to Brendan Rodgers’ British core at Anfield having transferred from Manchester City and Burnley and despite the scepticism surrounding their arrivals, what Liverpool have secured is two hard-working pros.
The jury is very much out on Rodgers’ transfer policy having gotten it completely wrong with the likes of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and to a lesser extent Lazar Markovic last summer so this time around, the captures of Milner and Ings look far more sensible.
Although they look like sensible additions, what our resident Reds fans are crying out for is a marquee type of signing, a signing to truly get Liverpool fans everywhere out of their seats giving them hope that they can indeed break back into the top four in 2015/16.
These cravings have been exacerbated of course by the loss of Steven Gerrard and the circus that continues to surround Raheem Sterling’s current situation at Anfield.
While Liverpool will of course go on to sign more players as the summer drags on, here we have identified five of the most ridiculous Reds rumours we’ve heard by the bar in recent times.
