The Daily Mirror have made Liverpool fans smile here in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that while winger Eduardo Salvio will pen a new deal with his current club Benfica, he is looking to get an affordable buyout clause inserted.
The star is currently trying to get the Portuguese side to reduce the £43 million buyout amount in his current deal – something that has obviously put a fair few clubs off making a move for him.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers seems to be far happier looking at wingers and forwards to bring into the club than a defender – and with the Reds looking more than a little bit shaky at the back at times this season, we think they need to bring in at least a couple of defensive minded players this summer.
We also think making sure the likes of Jordan Henderson remain at the club should be a top priority for the club and considering the form of Liverpool in the last six games and the impact Henderson has had, we think he is far more important than a new player.
Liverpool fans. Do you think you need to be looking at someone like Salvio or is securing the future of Raheem Sterling more important? Let us know your thoughts below.
