Liverpool fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claimed that the club were considering making a move for Napoli winger Dries Mertens.
The Reds are considering making an approach for the attacking star after facing up to losing Raheem Sterling and as one of our punters notes over beer and burger over by the bar, the club will need to bring in at least a couple of players this summer.
We think that the Reds need to broaden their horizons and try and get a player who will qualify as a marquee signing and someone who will make a statement to the rest of the league, and we cannot see Mertens being that man.
That being said, he is looking to leave Napoli this summer and would be more than receptive to a move to England and at least he isn’t a Southampton player!
Liverpool fans. Do you think that this would be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts below.
