Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted to see Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold progress to the last eight of the World Cup.
England sealed their place in the quarter-final with a penalty victory over Colombia on Tuesday. Harry Kane’s penalty was cancelled out by Yerry Mina’s stoppage-time header, but despite Henderson missing his spot-kick, the Three Lions progressed. They will face Sweden with a semi-final place on offer for the victors.
Liverpool’s transfer business has gone quiet following a blistering start to the window. Their dealings are likely to accelerate following the conclusion of the tournament. Jurgen Klopp should be keeping a close eye on England’s performances and target one of their star performers.
Leicester City’s Harry Maguire has been fantastic alongside John Stones and Kyle Walker in the England back three; he would be an excellent addition to the Liverpool squad. Valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, the 25-year-old joined the Foxes last summer after impressing for Hull City and featured in every Premier League game last season.
Maguire is tall, strong and great in the air but is also comfortable with the ball at his feet. His ability to play from the back makes him the perfect defensive partner for Virgil van Dijk in the Liverpool backline. The centre-back is also a threat from set-pieces, scoring two goals last season and playing a huge part in England’s success from them in the World Cup.
He wouldn’t come cheap, but he may be worth it.
