It must be Matt Law of Mirror Football’s day off, because he’s back in the Football Transfer Tavern with some more exciting transfer news; after getting everyone to meet him over by the jukebox, stating that Liverpool plan to sign not one, not two but another three players.
The trio mentioned were Ajax stars Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld (pictured), as well as, Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand. If Rodgers were to sign the three mentioned, it would take Liverpool’s summer signings to seven new recruits.
The Premier League club believe a £22 million double deal can be done with Ajax and have made an enquiry to Chelsea about Bertrand’s availability, a player Rodgers knows well from his days at Stamford Bridge.
Eriksen is thought to be the man Rodgers wants to soften the blow of missing out on Henrikh Mkhitaryan but faces competition from a whole host of clubs, including Roma. Alderweireld has given Liverpool hope of obtaining his signature after the defender turned down the chance to discuss personal terms with Norwich City, after a £7 million fee had been agreed.
The Liverpool fans in the tavern were getting really excited about the possibility of these signings, well, they were, until a drunk regular decides to start chanting: “There’s only one Luis Suarez!”
I think we are in for a long summer…
