Jurgen Klopp began his summer spending spree by signing Mohammed Salah from Roma, but PSG’s Javier Pastore should be next on his wish list to add some extra strength in depth.
Fans in the Tavern have been mulling over who should be next to join the Anfield side next season and Pastore’s name keeps cropping up among conversation.
After a somewhat disappointing season for the French outfit during last campaign which saw him make only 23 appearances, punters at the bar are curious to know if PSG’s Unai Emery would be considering letting the Argentine international go for a cheaper price.
Having turned 28 last month, he still clearly has a few years of his peak left to come so would still be a good buy.
Phillipe Coutinho has repeatedly been linked with a move away as well and if he does decide to leave, Pastore would be a decent replacement.
With rivals Manchester United splashing big on Romelu Lukaku and Everton acquiring Wayne Rooney, the Reds could do with another high-profile signing to throw them back into the limelight.
According to Football Italia, the French side have put a £35 million price tag on Pastore which could be as a stumbling block.
However, in the grand scheme of things that isn’t that much in the modern transfer market, especially for such a talented player.
The Italian news outlet are also reporting Inter are interested in signing Pastore but the price tag has put them off.
Liverpool fans, what do you think? Is he good enough for the shirt? Let us know below!
