Liverpool surely won’t hesitate to improve their team despite possible successes they could enjoy come the end of the campaign.
That at least is true judging by the constant reports linking them with new players over the summer period.
And to be fair, as proven with history, the more a team tries to improve, the more success they’re likely to enjoy.
For Liverpool, their spending spree last summer has put them in the favourable position they now find themselves in as they bid to win the Premier League. Yet they could form into an even greater team this summer, with the right players added.
Only quality squad improvements can be justified so to recruit a player like Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt is exactly what they need to do.
Interestingly, the attacker was signed for just £315k back in 2014.
Brandt, (who is valued at £40.5 million on Transfermarkt) would join the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri as another wide option but his creative is something the three don’t share with him.
Of course, a potential big fee won’t bother FSG as they’ve never been afraid to spend big in the past.
Seeing as the 22-year-old wing-wizard has been sensational for Leverkusen this season, it makes sense for Liverpool along with other top clubs (according to Sport Bild via the Mirror) to be enquiring for his signature.
With seven goals and 14 assists in all competitions, Brandt has taken his game to a whole new level this season and his contribution promotes him as a top signing for many teams this summer.
The German is more than capable of switching positions, whether that be on the wing, or playing in the middle of the park instead. He can do pretty much anything in the final third, whether’s it’s scoring goals, creating or dragging defenders out of position, which makes him such a dangerous player.
So therefore with age and quality on his side, what are you waiting for Liverpool?
