Liverpool supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are looking at the Express with intent, with the publication suggesting (via Bild) that Liverpool will rival Arsenal to the signing of Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka.
The media outlet suggests that the Reds are plotting a £20 million bid for the 6ft 1 midfielder, who is excelling in the Bundesliga this season.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern hasn’t got a bad word to say about the Swiss international, and feels Xhaka is only going to get better, so getting the star at the age of 23 would be a massive coup for Liverpool.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp knows the Bundesliga well having had a successful spell with Borussia Dortmund, and our resident Liverpool fans here in the Tavern admit they’ve put all their faith into Klopp, and are sure he will pick out some real gems from the German top-flight!
A couple of Arsenal supporters enjoying the Transfer Tavern’s 2-for-1 pint offer, feel that Xhaka would add an element of dynamism and robustness to the Arsenal midfield, and say they would be gutted to lose out to Liverpool for the 23-year-old!
