The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been mesmerised by their sides attacking performances of late…
Manchester City may have stolen all the headlines for their imperious attacking performances during the early endeavours of the season, but Liverpool have certainly given Guardiola’s city slickers a run for their money of late. Whilst City have gone off the boil somewhat and needed to dig deep to secure victories, Liverpool have been blowing sides away in clinical fashion. Liverpool are certainly far from the finished article, but with the signing of a handful of players in key positions, they could seriously challenge the dominance of Manchester’s giants this season and beyond.
And according to reports in The Daily Mail, Liverpool are in the market for another central-midfielder with OGC Nice’s Jean Michael Seri on Jurgen Klopp’s wishlist.
The Ivorian international who has been capped 16 times by his country, is something a late bloomer.
Seri began his career in the Ivory Coast before he earned a move to Pacos Ferreira in 2013 following a short loan spell at Porto B.
OGC Nice later snapped him up for a measly £1 million Euros in 2015 where his reputation has risen rapidly in the last two years.
Despite the fact that Seri has attracted interest from plenty of Europe’s heavyweights, Liverpool should not expect the Ligue 1 star to become an overnight sensation at Anfield.
Seri has only been playing at a top level of European football for two years thus far, and he is also yet to experience Champions League football due to Nice’s elimination in the qualifying round last August.
The expectations from the supporters and the club’s hierarchy at Liverpool are some of the greatest in European football, but those expectations will need to be moderated to enable Seri to become a success in English football.
The step up the Premier League will be by far the biggest of Seri’s career so far and the Ivorian will need plenty of time to adapt to his new surroundings before the Liverpool supporters can expect to see the best from him.
