Kenny Dalglish and Damien Comolli are trying to right a wrong that goes back quite a while at Anfield, the clubs of width has inhibited them for a while, and with their new Geordie giant it really is time they sorted out that problem.
It appears that the Liverpool club have made a winger their top priority this Summer as they look to build a more competitive side for next seasons campaign. They are believed to have made Jesus Navas their top priority with long term target Diego Perotti as a fall back plan.
Navas has been at Sevilla since he joined their academy in 2000 when he was just 15. He came through the ranks and played a while for the clubs ‘b’ side before breaking into the first team during the 03-04 campaign. He became a regular for the 04-05 season and from there he has never looked back. His success with Sevilla has brought about international caps, he is now an important member of the national setup and he was involved in Spain’s success at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Navas is known for his excellent dribbling skills and his quick feet, he is capable of taking on a man and beating them. He is exactly the sort of player that Liverpool have been missing. Although he is most comfortable on the right, he can play down the left if required.
Liverpool have identified a list of wide men for next season and Navas is their first choice, if they can’t convince him to move it is believed that their second choice is team mate at Sevilla Diego Perotti. Obviously it is unlikely that Sevilla would sell both of them, however with the Spanish clubs financial problems it is thought that they would be persuaded to sell one, and Navas is the man that Kenny Dalglish has his heart set on.
There is a slightly less glamorous third option should they capture neither of the Sevilla wide man and that is Wolves winger Matt Jarvis, but it is believed that the flair and creativity that would come with the Spaniards make them far more desirable to the Liverpool hierarchy.
The Anfield club are desperate for width this Summer and with one of these 2 they will have secured one of the best widemen in Europe and that will be of massive help to them moving forward and it could actually demonstrate quite a coup for the Merseyside club.
