Liverpool fans have become accustomed to seeing their club miss out on their top targets in recent times.
So whilst the fact Inter Milan confirmed the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri from Bayern Munich came as no surprise yesterday, that did not make it any less of a disappointment.
The Reds have missed out on a host of top class players under Brendan Rodgers, including the likes of Diego Costa and Willian (both at Chelsea of course) and Alexis Sanchez who is currently scoring goals for fun at Arsenal.
Shaqiri was the latest in a long line of players to reject a move to Anfield and came a matter of hours after former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes opted for life as a Manchester United reserve instead of replacing Simon Mignolet as Liverpool’s number one.
Brendan Rodgers admitted Liverpool must do more to attract top class players to Anfield in his pre-match press conference yesterday because at present, it would come as a shock if the Reds managed to lure anyone decent to the club this month.
Here we have gone through the rumours, and found it pretty straightforward to find five players who we simply can’t see making the switch to Merseyside this month.
