The Daily Mail have a claim from Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard that has many of the punters in the Football Transfer Tavern nodding in agreement.
The club legend has claimed that not only would selling forward Luis Saurez to Arsenal be a massive mistake to echo the sale of Fernando Torres to Chelsea, the side also need a big signing to help the forward.
Now not only is Arsene Wenger considering a move for the player but it is also rumoured that should Gareth Bale make the move to Real Madrid, Andre Villas Boas will make a move for the player to boot.
Gerrard noted that:
‘We need that one exciting marquee signing who can play in one of the attacking positions [working with Suarez],’
‘That’s why we are talking along the lines of keeping Luis because if the club lose Luis we take a step backwards. He’s the best footballer I’ve ever played with.
‘Internationally, [Wayne] Rooney, [Paul] Scholes, [Frank] Lampard are all top players. John Terry and Rio Ferdinand at the back, all world-class footballers. Suarez is on a different planet to most.’
‘Where sit actually right now, it all depends on what decision Luis Suarez makes in the next few weeks,’
‘How difficult it becomes for Liverpool. If we lose him then the challenge becomes even more difficult. It’s that simple.’
Is Gerrard right? Will the club struggle without Suarez? Rate this rumour below.
