Liverpool are mooted to have looked at Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse as a potential transfer option during the recent transfer window, as reported by GOAL.
Starting off the new term in blistering fashion, the 26-year-old has shone for the Saints, registering three goal contributions in four games; one goal and two assists [Transfermarkt].
Owing to his fantastic form, it may come as little surprise to hear that other clubs were interested in his services during the summer.
Would Ward Prowse have been a good signing for LFC?
Liverpool were reportedly one of the clubs that looked at Ward-Prowse in the summer transfer period, potentially as a replacement for former icon Georginio Wijnaldum who has recently departed Anfield [GOAL].
Of course, Ward-Prowse signed a new five-year deal at St Mary’s last month, putting to bed any speculation that he might leave the South Coast club for the time being [Southampton FC Official].
In light of this news, it was no wonder that plenty of Liverpool fans took to social media to vent their fury at recent developments.
Liverpool fans react:
Replying to LFC Transfer Room on Twitter, here is what some fans had to say about the Ward Prowse links:
“This is so annoying. It’s already in the past. Transfer window already shut. Can we focus on being competitive this season?”
