The Liverpool supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are delighted to still have the Europa League to play for this season, with the competition seemingly their best chance to qualify for the Champions League next season.
One eye has inevitably been cast towards next season and the bunch of supporters who are present in the Tavern this evening have been discussing what business needs to take place during the summer months.
One supporter is tucking into his burger and a pint meal deal when he spots an article in the Daily Star, which claims that boss Jurgen Klopp could look to offload defender Martin Skrtel in an attempt to freshen up his defensive unit.
It is anticipated that the Slovakian central defender is likely to be sold, with Liverpool having already signed a ready-made replacement in Schalke defender Joel Matip.
Should a move away from Anfield take place it will end Skrtel’s eight-year association with Liverpool having signed from Zenit St Petersburg in 2008.
One Reds supporter is sat in the smoking area at the back of the Tavern and he thinks Klopp is right to be moving the Slovakian on, stating that he has made too many errors over the years and the time has come to look towards younger blood.
Liverpool fans, what do you make to this news? Has Skrtel been a good servant over the years? Is the time right to move him on?Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
