Liverpool fans here at The Transfer Tavern suffered a mixed bag of a season in the first full campaign under Jurgen Klopp. Some days threatened to be as good as they’ve ever been for a couple of decades while others left supporters drowning their sorrows.
However, believe is back with the Reds support and they’re all keen to see what kind of recruitment is on offer from Jurgen Klopp this summer.
Liverpool have plenty of work to do if they’re to become the consistent title contenders that they threatened to be in the early part of this season.
One complaint from fans here at the bar aimed at Klopp was an over-reliance on the likes of Sadio Mane, who took the Premier League by storm. As good as he was, when he left for the African Cup of Nations, Liverpool missed him so badly that it ruined their entire season.
In order to solve that Klopp is said to be targeting Southampton attacking midfielder Dusan Tadic. The Saints man would add more creative and attacking flair to the Liverpool front line, with the ability to support strikers and wingers running off him.
That’s according to The Times anyway, who also say that he would be available for around £13m, the release clause that happens to be in his contract.
That’s a bargain in Premier League terms this season.
What do you think Liverpool fans? Is Tadic the kind of signing you were hoping for this season or are you looking for Klopp to deliver a marquee signing?
