The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to finally return to the pinnacle of the English football pyramid. It’s been a long, tiresome 28-year dry spell for the Reds, but under Jurgen Klopp, they’re clearly a team on the up.
However, if they’re to have any chance of regaining supremacy in England, they need to bring in a bit more top-tier talent, and one player that could be perfect is Leicester City attacker Jamie Vardy.
Vardy has had a sensational rise up the footballing pyramid and even won the league with Leicester City in 2014. A move to Liverpool could be fantastic for all parties.
Liverpool’s attack is arguably the best facet of their team, but there is no doubting that further depth is needed. Beyond Roberto Firmino, in particular, there is a real lack of depth going forward, and that’s been problematic this season. With European football, domestic cups and Premier League games on the horizon – as well as a World Cup this summer – the Reds are going to be stretched massively this season, and so the more bodies that Klopp has to choose from the better.
Vardy would be able to come in and offer some much-needed quality beyond Firmino, and that’s exactly what the Reds need.
Furthermore, the Englishman is also a very different player to Firmino. Whilst the latter relies on passing and technique to supply, and score, goals – Vardy is primarily focused on doing what he does best, which is solely scoring. He’s bagged a very solid 20 league goals this season, and that’s a testament to his quality in that regard.
His arrival, then, would give Klopp a much more direct option going forward, and sometimes that’s what is needed when trying to break teams down.
Depth is going to be on the agenda for Liverpool this summer as they look to improve even further, and a player like Vardy would go a long way to providing them with the quality needed to finally win their 19th English league title.
