Liverpool supporters in the Transfer Tavern are enthusiastically awaiting the arrival of new players, as preparations for the forthcoming season has begun.
The Reds triumphed against Tranmere Rovers 4-0 in their opening fixture of their pre-season, and they will play against Wigan Athletic this evening.
Despite the fact, that their pre-season fixtures are underway, Jurgen Klopp has only managed to complete deals for two of his targets, Dominic Solanke from Chelsea and Mohammed Salah from AS Roma.
Many of our resident Reds are waiting expectantly for further additions to be made to Jurgen Klopp’s side. One player that our landlord believes that the Reds should target is Celtic’s, Kieran Tierney.
Liverpool share a good relationship with their former manager Brendan Rodgers; the Northern Irishman almost orchestrated the club’s first successful quest for the Premier League title.
Celtic have a superb left-back at their disposal, and our landlord believes that Klopp should make his move.
Despite being only 20-years-old, Kieran Tierney has already amassed two full seasons of experience, registering 75 appearances and scoring three goals in the process.
He played an integral role in Celtic’s domestic success last season – rather famously the Bhoys went undefeated throughout the duration of their league campaign – and many consider this the ideal time for Tierney to progress as a player.
While Tierney won’t be rewarded with a starting spot instantaneously, he could provide series competition to James Milner, who is not a natural defender. He would also be able to benefit from Milner’s mentorship and guidance; the Englishman is one of the most influential attacking full-backs in the Premier League.
At the age of 20, Tierney’s potential is staggering, and Liverpool’s record of youth development is certainly impressive. If given sufficient opportunities the Scotsman will thrive, Liverpool may prove to be his perfect match.
