Liverpool’s struggles against Southampton – despite signing most of their players in recent years – continued yesterday following a drab draw at Anfield, much to the frustration of our local Reds fans.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have failed to score against the Saints in all four games this season and yesterday’s stalemate put a huge dent in their hopes for the top four.
So, quotes from Kop legend and Sky Sports pundit Phil Thompson suggesting the Merseyside giants might be keen on ANOTHER Saints star have barely come as that much of a surprise.
The former Reds skipper hints his former charges would be well advised to sign Oriol Romeu this summer, following his wonderfully impressive campaign on the south coast.
Having replaced Victor Wanyama as the club’s main defensive midfielder, the former Chelsea man has excelled in the destroyer role all season, an area in which Liverpool have struggled indeed.
With that in mind, it’s barely surprising to see Thompson suggest the Anfield giants could be keen indeed.
”There might be a bit of interest as well in Romeu, who has had an excellent season and does exactly what it says on the tin”, he wrote.
”He’s a destroyer, he’s got a great attitude and passes the ball very well. If Southampton were interested in cashing in then he’d offer us something we don’t really have at the moment.”
