Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up at our La Liga expert to see what they say about the latest claim coming from MundoDeportivo and just who the Reds have been linked with today.
It seems that Brendan Rodgers is willing to part with £5 million to land Barcelona’s Brazilian right back Daniel Alves and given the Reds’ lack of defensive prowess last season at times, this may not be the worst idea in the world.
Glen Johnson missed large chunks of last season due to injury with Jon Flanagan enjoying a breakthrough campaign at Anfield and the Johnson didn’t perform too admirably at the World Cup for England either.
Alves is surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou and new manager Luis Enrique would be happy to part with him, leading our punters to question just who else has been sniffing around the Brazilian star.
As our landlord reminds us over a pint, Paris Saint-Germain were linked with a swoop for the former Sevilla defender but have now lost interest, leaving the way clear for Liverpool and Rodgers to make their move should they wish.
Liverpool fans. Would you be happy with Alves or do you think he is past his best these days? Let us know your thoughts below.
