The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see success and trophies return to Anfield and with their team taking shape to compete with the best, their time could come very soon.
Liverpool have scored the second highest amount of goals this season in the league as their front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have caused utter destruction to teams in their way. If this continues on next season, Liverpool will be strong favourites to challenge Manchester City for the title.
It’s not just goals that need to continue but also the improvements in recent weeks of their defence will massively help a strong push for the title as well. Virgil Van Dijk has been in inspired form since arriving this January from Southampton and a Dutch centre-back in the form of Matthijs De Ligt to partner him would provide Liverpool with a very strong defensive duo.
The 18-year-old is valued at £22.50 million on Transfermarkt and is without a doubt regarded as one of the best up and coming defenders in world football. If Liverpool are seriously aspiring to bring success back to Anfield, this level of talent is needed within their ranks.
Money won’t be a problem with Liverpool loaded but competition from the top teams could be. Having played in 33 games this season, De Ligt has proven that already he is capable of performing at the highest level and yet he still has a whole career ahead of him.
Us punters are very excited by the potential of this lad and if Liverpool manage to sway him towards England, success will also arrive in due course we believe.
Thoughts – Let us know Reds!
