Liverpool simply have to beat Chelsea to signing of £22.5m-rated Dutchman

Liverpool’s season so far has been a good one, with the Reds positioning themselves right in the mix for a run at the title if they can maintain their form.

The Reds’ style of play under manager Jurgen Klopp has much to be admired, and there is every chance that they can continue to build and finally land that first Premier League title.

However, in order to keep up the pressure and maintain form, Liverpool do need to keep adding quality to the ranks, and that means dipping into the market in the next two transfer windows at the very least to ensure they keep the pace with the other big hitters in the top flight.

Indeed, one man we think will be getting a move to one of the big clubs in the coming seasons is former Chelsea defender Nathan Ake, who has been in superb form for Bournemouth this term.

While Chelsea hold the trump card in terms of bringing him back to the Bridge, we at the Tavern think that Liverpool signing Ake would be a superb piece of business at Anfield.

The £22.5m-rated Dutch star has really developed in the last 12 months, and is finally fulfilling the promise he showed at the Blues.

While Liverpool do have Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, the thought of putting Ake with that pair as a back three really does read well on paper, meaning Liverpool could be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

Liverpool fans, what do you think? Would Ake be a good signing? Let us know in the comments!
