The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern have resigned themselves to the fact that a top four Premier League finish is unlikely this season, with the group hopeful that their team can win the Europa League to earn themselves a place in next season’s Champions League.
With boss Jurgen Klopp very keen to oversee a squad overhaul, talk has turned among the supporters towards which players might come to the club, and which might move on to pastures new.
One Reds supporter is flicking through The Express in the smoking area at the back of the Tavern and he has spotted an article that claims Chelsea left-back, Nathan Ake, is firmly on Liverpool’s summer radar.
The Blues have conceded that they may sell the player who is currently on loan at Watford, but only if they receive bids in the region of £10 million.
Our knowledgeable landlord is cleaning out his cellar and he thinks Ake has shown this season that he has what it takes to become a top class Premier League player, stating that Liverpool could do a lot worse than the Dutchman.
Liverpool fans, would you welcome Ake to the club? Is he better than Alberto Moreno?
