To the despair of many of the Liverpool fans that are regulars here in the Transfer Tavern, reports have broken around the media outlets that Mario Gotze is set to stay at Bayern Munich.
It’s a twist in this transfer story that many had not expected but now it seems the Reds will need to focus elsewhere in their attempts to recruit new players.
Manager Jurgen Klopp is preparing to embark on his first Summer transfer window at the Anfield club and will be aiming to bring in signings that can help the club improve on their eighth place Premier League finish and climb towards the top four.
Time will tell who the former Dortmund manager does bring in but with a few months left to pursue potential players – the window isn’t even open yet – there’ll be plenty of rumours to replace the Gotze ones.
The Reds then, may have missed out on the World Cup winner, but our landlord at the Transfer Tavern thinks this FIVE would be more than suitable alternatives.
