‘Be a mistake’, ‘Surely not’ – Liverpool fans hugely underwhelmed by recent transfer speculation

Liverpool supporters have been pretty downbeat in the Transfer Tavern this week following their side’s defeat at the hands of Premier League strugglers Swansea City on Monday, a result which ended their 18-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.

Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their clash with the Swans off the back of beating runaway leaders Manchester City 4-3 the week before, and having not tasted defeat in any competition since the end of October. Yet the Reds produced a limp display and were deservedly beaten at the Liberty Stadium on Monday, with Alfie Mawson’s strike just before half time enough to secure a 1-0 win for Carlos Carvalhal’s side, in turn putting a dent in Liverpool’s top four aspirations.

As such, there have been many frustrated Liverpudlians in the Tavern in the last few days, several of whom are hoping that Monday’s result and performance are nothing more than a blip, and normal service is resumed against West Brom in the FA Cup this weekend.

In the meantime though, there has been plenty for our resident Reds to get their teeth into, not least recent reports linking them with a move for Baggies striker Salomon Rondon.

The 28-year-old has scored 23 goals in 105 games for the Midlands outfit since moving there back in 2015, yet has only managed three Premier League goals so far this season as the club battle to preserve their top-flight status.

Nonetheless, the Reds are reportedly keen on bringing the Venezuela international to Anfield this month, in news which hasn’t gone down particularly well with several Liverpool fans on Twitter…
