Liverpool could still act upon transfer decision and land talented forward this summer

With the Liverpool fans nervous about their Champions League decider later this week, they’re doing their very best not to think about the Philippe Coutinho situation. 

Indeed, the Brazilian has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona and multiple bids are thought to have been snubbed, leaving our resident Reds really rather nervous indeed.

So, reports from the Daily Mirror at least help change the focus of their attention. They claim the Merseyside giants are amongst the interested parties in Paris Saint-Germain star, Julian Draxler.

The German is understood to have been told he can leave the French capital following the arrival of Neymar and would reportedly be available for around £32m.

With that being said, Manchester United and Arsenal are thought to be the among the others casting keen eyes over the World Cup winner’s situation in Paris.

Having broken through with Schalke as a teenager, the German will be well-known to compatriot Klopp and would presumably be a natural fit for his trademark brand of football.

Draxler has impressed our punters with his performances in the Champions League over the years, so would certainly prove a popular addition.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Even if Coutinho was sold for over £100m and Liverpool were able to buy Draxler and Virgil van Dijk, it’d represent some pretty good business at Anfield.

If the 23-year-old could operate behind the likes of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane alongside two more defensive midfielders, Liverpool really would be a danger to pretty much anyone.

Thoughts?
