Liverpool have today been linked with Barcelona starlet, Bojan Krkic. It’s being suggested that Dalglish could have to part with up to £20 million for the striker, as he looks to build his own Liverpool team over the summer.
Bojan has been one of the up and coming stars of the Barcelona team for the last 4 years, and is a product of their famous youth academy. However, his position at the club is hotly contested and he has struggled to break into the first team.
It’s believed that the player is unhappy with the lack of opportunities available to him at Barca, and would jump at the chance to play some first team football. Liverpool are not the first Premiership team to be linked with the player, but they have emerged as favourites to sign him this summer.
NESV have already shown they are willing to back Kenny financially, and the £20 million asking price Barcelona have set should pose little to no problems. Bojan ticks all the boxes for Liverpool, given that he’s young and can play on the wings as well as up front. Obviously, Liverpool have history with this sort of thing. Remember a young Fernando Torres? Of course you do!

Bojan is less prolific than the young El Nino was however, scoring just 3 goals in his 19 appearances this season. Given some time in the first-team however, the young Spaniard will surely prove his worth as Dalglish looks to make a real mark on the Premiership during the next campaign.
