Liverpool have been playing some scintillating football this season under manager Jurgen Klopp, with some of the attacking play on display breathtaking to watch.
The Reds have still been found wanting defensively at times, but some of the attacking play is getting to the level of a few years back, when Anfield saw the stunning forward play of Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, and more importantly, Xabi Alonso.
The Spaniard was a genuine world class talent and is often referred to by Liverpool players as they best they ever played with, and it’s for good reason.
The club though have never quite replaced him, and plenty have tried to step up to the plate and failed. Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks that the club need to act and bring in someone with genuine class to fill that void, and he thinks PSG midfielder Marco Verratti could be that man.
The Italian midfield ace has been excellent for the French side over the last few seasons as they have romped to victory in Ligue 1 thanks to their millions of pounds of investment ploughed into the club from their Qatari owners.
Verratti is a presence in the middle of the park though for PSG and can pretty much do it all. Tackling, power, and excellent passing ability mark him out as somewhat of a modern day Roy Keane type player, and while this is a Man United reference, Liverpool fans will have no problem with Verratti signing.
A classy midfield operative, the Italian could make a huge splash at Anfield should Klopp look to seal a move for him.
Liverpool fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know!
