Liverpool submitted shock bid to sign Arsenal ace before he left the club

Abou DiabyLiverpool fans are looking very surprised here in the Football Transfer Tavern after seeing the news from the Daily Star – with the publication claiming that the Reds offered Abou Diaby the chance to join the Anfield club, before he departed for Ligue 1 side Marseille.

The midfielder was renowned for how injury-prone he was and he has been out of action for the majority of the past two seasons, but that did not stop Liverpool attempting to secure a deal for the French ace.

Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern feels this could have actually been a really shrewd purchase from Brendan Rodgers, and had this to say: “This would have been some buy for Liverpool, if Diaby managed to stay fit throughout the duration of the season, he could have turned out to be a real asset for the Merseyside club.”

A couple of Liverpool fans enjoying a beer and burger special at the bar completely agree with the landlord, and feel his solidity and enforcer style of play could have been a massive boost to the side.

Liverpool fans…. Are you surprised at this news? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
