Calm down, calm down; we know what you’re thinking claims our Football Transfer Tavern landlord in response to the fact that many Liverpool fans are claiming Roberto Firmino is the man who’ll ultimately prove Raheem Sterling’s replacement at Anfield.
With the Reds contract rebel completing his high profile summer switch to Manchester City, it mustn’t be ignored that Brendan Rodgers and co will be receiving a mighty £49 million for his services and with funds these large, perhaps they’ll be immediately reinvested into Liverpool’s playing squad.
Liverpool have been the busiest Premier League side in the transfer window so far this summer bringing in James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne but the consensus amongst Reds supporters is that they could do with another forward and perhaps another creative midfielder.
Of course, there are a whole host of players who could kill two birds with one stone and those are the guys we’re concentrating on today and those that could effectively fill the shoes belonging to Sterling.
After speaking about the topic at length, our landlord and a few Liverpool supporters have come up with a list of five potential Sterling replacements that Rodgers should be considering as we embark on the crux of the transfer window.
